15 Modern Christmas Decorating Ideas To Swoon Over

It's time to get into the festive spirit and deck the halls! But... how do you keep it modern and fun, without your home turning into an overwhelming mess of red, green and way too much glitter? Well you've come to the right place!

Here are 15 of my favourite finds for a festive interior that still keep the chic intact. Pick one or all of these ideas to bring some holiday cheer into your home this Christmas season.


Modern Christmas styling comes down to create a colour palette you're comfortable with, and sticking to it — if that means you want neon pink and red everywhere, go for it! Or if you're channelling your inner Scandi minimalist, you're likely looking at something more paired back like black, white and brown. Feel free to move away from the traditional red and green, but whatever you do, stick to your guns and only introduce colours that are in your colour palette. This will keep everything feeling harmonious.


There are many reasons to forego the traditional Christmas tree this year. Clearly in Singapore it's far more sustainable to do without the real deal, but even if you thought of setting up your faux tree (yes, the one you've been dragging around for years and years and dread digging it out every time!), I'm here to tell you there are so many other, equally as effective options out there! You can hang up a simply poster and attach some lights, or create a tree out of family photos or decorative ribbon. It's unique, fun to create, and something that doesn't need to break the bank!


I can say with absolute certainty, candles will never go out of style. There's no cosier way to create a warm, inviting ambiance in

the home than turning the lights way down and lighting candles around the house. Now if that's not hygge then I don't know what is!


For the kids or the adults, this is a fun way to get into the holiday spirit. Make the advent calendar a focal point of your Christmas styling by hanging a unique, handmade rendition on your walls this season.


Why not swap out a couple of your existing posters or photos with something a little more seasonal? With places like Etsy full of playful, downloadable posters, this is a great way to have big impact on your festive interior, without investing a whole bunch of time or money. Either keep it minimal with a graphic phrase, or go all out with bold imagery and pop it into an existing photo frame and you're good to go!
