Not everybody loves red and green. Incorporate these non-traditional Christmas décor ideas into your home without compromising on personality.

Yes, we know that you have been waiting all year to spruce up your home for the “most wonderful time of the year.” And if you’re not into the traditional red and green décor or mini Santa and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer everywhere, then we have plenty of refreshingly chic non-traditional Christmas décor ideas to deck the halls. From earthy Christmas to soft, white, and naturalistic themes, we have you covered. Trust us, straying from a red and green color palette won’t land you on the naughty list.

Deck the Bedroom

One of the non-traditional Christmas décor ideas your kids will surely love is to decorate your children’s bedroom with a strand of pint-sized gifts. A fun idea by Annie Sloan. It’s literally the gift that keeps on giving.

Earthy Christmas

Stick to browns and earth tones with pops of greenery for an insanely inviting and stylish holiday living room. It’s also a perfect Christmas theme because it does not disrupt your home’s neutral style.

Fun and Playful Entrance

Instead of going for a simple entrance, why not go big with jumbo wooden versions of string lights and lush holiday garland? It’s the only right way to welcome family and guests this holiday season.

Make It Part of Your Décor

Get inspired by Milk and Honey Life‘s Christmas setup from MyDomaine that looks like it’s part of the original home’s décor. The simple and small tabletop tree and rustic garland décor create just the right amount of holiday mood without disrupting the calm style of the space.

Paper Garland & Ornaments

One of the non-traditional Christmas décor ideas you can do to spruce up your home for the holidays is this oversized paper holly garland from The House That Lars Built. You can also make ornaments from white paper and hang them on the mantle in your home, plant, or shelf.

Soft, White and Naturalistic

True Home from MyDomaine suggested going minimalist on your home’s Christmas décor with a simple evergreen tree paired with a cozy blanket tree skirt, surrounded by gifts wrapped in a crisp white paper. The earthy and naturalistic aesthetic is the perfect theme for every minimalist lover.

Touches of Green

Adding to our list of non-traditional Christmas décor ideas is to spice up your kitchen for the holidays with a festive garland on the window and a simple tree on the kitchen island.

Tropical Wonderland

Bring the holiday into your tropical home with these sparkly cactus Christmas trees with a red plaid blanket tree skirt.

Warm and Cozy

Got an awkward corner? Make it cozy by adding an adorable tree, like this slim tree by Cottage + Sea from MyDomaine. It looks like a modern-day version of the favorite Charlie Brown Christmas tree in a very chic way.

Winterized Palette

Straying from a red-and-green color palette won’t land you on the naughty list. Keep your Christmas theme clean and white, then add in metallic accents, like gold, for a festive feel. You can also opt for silver accents for a complete winter wonderland style.

We hope that these non-traditional Christmas décor ideas will help make your space feel merry and bright without throwing off the balance of your home’s interior style. Learn more interior design tips and ideas on Omysa’s Design blog. Happy decorating!
