120 minimalist Christmas decor ideas

A minimalist home can also enjoy the upcoming holidays, the key is choosing the right amount of decor pieces to avoid overwhelming the space.


For most people, the words minimalism and Christmas just don't go hand in hand, and it does make some sense. Minimalism teaches us to appreciate clean lines, a curated selection of furniture and decor, avoiding excessive colors.


Christmas arrives and turns our homes upside down, with bushy trees, many color ornamental balls, and sparkling wreaths.


Christmas decor is something very personal but in general, it tends to fill up at least a couple of rooms (living and dining) with decorative pieces, seeking compositions with a lot of layered textures, colors, and lights; for a minimalist, this might feel annoying.


Luckily for us, there are ways to decorate maintaining minimalism without losing the Christmas spirit, so grab a cup of your favorite drink and enjoy this compilation with 120 minimalist Christmas decor ideas to inspire you.
