Happy December! I am starting out the month with some Christmas decor inspiration for y’all. Does everyone have their tree up yet, or you like me and have put it off? I confess- I am moving slow this year. Well actually- I move slow every year! I usually don’t get around to decorating until the first week of December. I do, however, obsess about Christmas decor ALL. YEAR. LONG. I have a problem for real.
This year is the first year I have had an Instagram account, and I follow all things home decor. I was amazed when I started looking through my feed and seeing how soon people deck their halls! The theme this year? Neutral decor. Everywhere. Oh, and flocked trees galore! I didn’t know what flocked trees were, and I became so obsessed I purchased TWO for myself this year. Again, I have a problem. Lol.
I have scoured my Instagram and Pinterest accounts, and have compiled a list of 30 different photos that are going to knock your socks off! These photos have inspired me for my Christmas decor this year, and I hope it inspires y’all too!
This first photo was my first inspiration and led me along the way of researching neutral home decor. I have fallen in love with using unique pieces as a tree stand! I bought a galvanized bucket for one of my trees and I can’t wait to see the final product! I love that there are no ornaments on this tree; it is simple and beautiful. The buffalo check incorporation gives the space the depth that it needs, especially when a matching pair of Hunter boots are involved!
2. Enter first flocked tree (there will be plenty more, I promise). This tree has white and silver accents, which appear to blend into the tree. I love how the lights accentuates the color scheme and just seems to glow. The white shag on the coffee table ties into the tree so well and adds to the neutral theme of this decor.
3. Ugh. That was my first thought when I saw this. It is so simple yet so calm and inviting. The basket, blanket, and the string of ornament lights give this just enough added decor to keep it interesting without taking away the simplicity of the decor. I may have to do this next year if I can tear myself away from flocked trees!
4. It wouldn’t be right of me to do a post on neutral Christmas decor without adding some photos from Instafamous Liv Marie Galvan. I mean, come on y’all! Don’t you think this is gorgeous?!?! This photo sparked my flocked tree fire. And is the reason I bought two flocked trees. The combination and height change of the trees is so visually appealing. One with lights and one without. It’s perfect, and I hope y’all love it as much as I do! I know Instagram does!
5. Notice the buffalo check again? It’s such a great pattern and color to add with wood, galvanized metal, and evergreen. I love the birch logs in the metal bucket by the fireplace. It adds more nature to the decor other than the trees. Plus, the muted color of the logs compliments the space well. My favorite decor piece of this area? The Merry Christmas sign. I love the size, the color, and how it is used as the centerpiece of the decor!
6. O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree! The white and gold ornaments on the tree fit this room perfectly! And that mirror! It is a statement piece! This tree looks like it was meant for this room! No “normal” Christmas colors to be found in this photo. The white trees and greenery on the mantle just add to the overall decor and color scheme. If only my house could look like this!
7. I will confess that I have never put much thought into what my presents look like under the tree. I run into the store and just grab whatever wrapping paper is closest. This photo has inspired me to use my wrapped presents as an added piece of my Christmas decor. I absolutely love the paper in combination with the delicate greenery and gift tags. The twine helps add interest to the presents as well.
8. I am in love with everything about this fireplace decor. The mirror and wreath are a perfect centerpiece for the surrounding trees. The galvanized buckets add that rustic character to the space. The addition of the garland, burlap stockings, and pillows just completes the space. It is so visually appealing!
9. I’ve always said that Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, but Liz Marie is a VERY close second! To say I’m in love with this dining room would be a huge understatement. She has yet another flocked tree in her dining room. There can’t be too many, right?!?! This door accentuated with the flocked wreath is beyond words. The trees placed in the baskets give the room more texture and some natural color elements. That clock is gorgeous even though it’s not Christmas decor. She added the garland, though, to dress it up! If I could just copy her house decor while I am building my house, I will literally be living in heaven. Ok, enough gawking lol.
10. This tree from Fresh Home is stunning. I love the shape of the tree and the choice of ornaments. They just go well together. Also, I like the white and gray color pallet with some wrought iron and wood mixed in. It is a very serene room which makes the tree just steal the show!
11. This tree right here, King of Christmas flocked tree, is the Instafamous tree. I bought 2 of these babies, one 7ft. and one 5ft. and let me tell you- they. are. amazing. There is a reason they filled my feed! I will have a new post with my home Christmas decor as soon as I perfect it! Anyways- I have been highlighting neutral decor, but this tree has a very small hint of red. The ornaments are small so you can barely tell it is there. Definitely a good way to add just a subtle pop of color. King of Christmas- you rock my world!
12. Ok, one more tree from King of Christmas and I will be done raving. For now. Enter my inspiration for a galvanized metal bucket used as a tree stand. Yes- I completely stole it because I am so so so in love with the way it looks! And the two different height trees? Yup, got that inspo from this photo as well. What can I say?!?! You’ve gotta find it somewhere!
13. No ornaments? No lights? No problem! Maybe there are lights but they just aren’t turned on. Either way- I am loving the natural tree look that HouseSeven has used. It contrasts well with the shiplap walls. Also, the wreaths on the window and over the fireplace are almost the exact same color as the tree which ties it all together. And the star in the basket beside the tree? That is the cherry on top!
14. Christmas decor would not be complete without a dining table centerpiece, and Nest of Bliss has nailed it. Those birch log candles look so beautiful in the wooden box. The greenery accents the birch so well. Also, the addition of the greenery on the wood chandelier ties everything together. And what do I see peeking in from the hallway? A simple little Christmas tree. Perfection!
15. Need some more dining table decor ideas? Look no further! Can we start with the distressed window pane used for the stockings and vintage cards? Or what about the two Christmas trees in wood/metal boxes? No wait, lets talk about the candle assortment that matches the color of the wreaths. Perfect symmetry is so visually appealing, and Love Grows Wild knocked this one out of the park!
16. I’ve never loved Christmas tree decor as much as I like this from Savvy Southern Style. Let’s just say that the trees are stunning on their own, but that dining room hutch? Ah-mazing. I absolutely can not get over the greenery sprigs and the pine cone addition! The cherry on top of this dining table decor? The addition of snow under the Christmas trees!
17. I think this is the last dining room decor inspo. I think. #sorrynotsorry. I love this greenery table runner that ties into the decor on the plates. The mix of mercury glass and gold candle holders is just perfect. I also have an obsession with the tree trunk chargers- I own these and use them whenever possible.
18. Do y’all decorate your bedrooms for Christmas? With a full blown tree? I never have, but this bedroom from House of Five has completely inspired me to decorate EVERY room in my house! I mean, this tree is beautiful, and how awesome would it be to stare at it while lounging in bed?!?! I love the monotone theme with one small pop of greenery with the wreath!
19. Speaking of House of Five, look at this buffet table in her dining room! I am in love with the mostly white decor with pops of black along with the green from the trees. It just screams farmhouse. The white faux fur tree skirt is definitely the icing on the cake!
20. I know that I have been swooning over so many of these decor photos, but this one from French Country Cottage literally speaks to my soul. Since being home from Paris, my heart has literally been aching. This photo takes me back, and I can only hope to be able to recreate this one day. The neutral color scheme with pops of greenery are absolutely stunning. The way the Christmas tree just glows in the mirror is like having two for the price of one! Speechless!
21. This decor from Randi Garrett Design is another full blown tree in the bedroom, and I have NO complaints. I am in love with the fact that it is all white. The reflection in the mirror is another way to appreciate the beauty of the tree. The stacked boxes under the tree just fit with the decor of this room so well. Perfection!
22. This bedroom decor from One Kind Design just screams French Country! The color scheme, the clocks in the tree, the stockings hanging from the mantle headboard, and the addition of cotton stems is the perfect way to achieve the French country Christmas decor. I also want to take a second and truly appreciate this mantle used as a headboard. It is the most genius idea and one that I want to accomplish so bad. I am in love with it!
23. So I know I have talked about a ton of different rooms throughout a house, but decorating the bathroom with Christmas decor is something I have never done. Ok, I may have added a Christmas scented hand soap from Bath and Body Works, but even that sometimes doesn’t happen. This simple decor is such a perfect addition to this bathroom. The flocked garland and small tree are perfect. Kudos to The Rustic Boxwood for this bathroom decor.
24. Another Christmas bathroom decor below. Another incredible addition to a bathroom to celebrate the holiday season. This garland is extravagant, but it is perfectly framing the mirror, and I couldn’t imagine the mirror without it! Rotator Rod did a fabulous job!
25. I have mentioned Love Grows Wild earlier in the post, so it only seems right to add a picture of her front porch as well. The trees in the rustic planters create the perfect complimentary color combination. The addition of the wreath on the door adds to the flair of the decor. My favorite piece? The galvanized bucket with greenery.
26. I’ve mentioned French Country Cottage before and I couldn’t skip using this as inspiration as well. There is so much perfection in this photo, it almost seems unrealistic. I mean who can do this?!?! Where are the toys and empty coffee cups?!?! I applaud her and this beautiful neutral decor room.
27. The next two inspiration photos are from Yellow Bliss Road and they DO NOT disappoint! Though her decor does incorporate some red addition to the color scheme, it is just enough to make the rooms stunning. The dining table decor is so creative and has inspired me to come up with a neutral version. Also, the living room is put together so well. I love the wire basket holding a blanket and pillow! See that framed chalkboard print on the left side of the fireplace? You should check in out on her blog- there are sooooo many free download printables. I printed a few of my own to add to my decor this year!
28. Last, but certainly not least, is a sofa table decor from The Modest Farmhouse. The burlap sign is the perfect centerpiece! The symmetry accomplished with the candles and stockings makes my heart sing. Symmetry relieves my anxiety and is so visually appealing. If this doesn’t scream farmhouse, I don’t know what does!
Whew that was a long one! I just couldn’t have y’all miss out on some of the best Christmas decor I could find. I hope it inspires you as much as it has me. What other Christmas posts would y’all like to see? Let me know as my Christmas wheels are turning!
