In this year end, full of glitter, glitz and lights, we are always thinking about how to outdo last year's holiday decor. Should I go with a real tree? What colour scheme should I do this year? Did I miss the Bay's Holiday Decor sale?
Well, you can stop right now! Because like the old cliché says: Less is more!
Why not go minimalist? or simple?
Let's not forget to take a breather this Holiday season and return to simplicity.
With that motto, I am showcasing a few directions one can take when deciding to go for less while searching for your Christmas tree:
Bendable copper + LED = Win!
You can mold the lights to whatever object you want! And it comes in warm yellow or cool white.
So what to do:
Get yourself a tall cylinder vase, and some branches. Wrap the wire around the branches and you got yourself a lit-up simple Christmas tree!
- Be creative! Hanging Christmas balls on strings.
This idea is genius! Just get your Christmas balls from last year and some fishing line. You can hang them off a light fixture of attach them to the ceiling. It's airy, it's flowy, it's simple!
I love everything that is recycled, repurposed, reused! These little cuties come in 2 different sizes and complement a cool urban, condo-lofty Holiday decor.
- Ornamental branch or log
This would look amazing over a sideboard, console table or hutch. You can pick a few of your favourite Christmas tree ornaments and hang 3 to 5 just for a little shine. This is simple and uber inexpensive.
- Oak blocks tree and tea lights - For the handy ones or good friends with carpenters :-)
This is absolutely beautiful and completely translates the essence of simplicity. I was only able to find this for sale from a website in Australia, even though it's manufactured in Germany. But if you have some tools and a handy guy, this is totally doable with blocks of oak or any other wood, stained and nailed together. At the tip of each block, you put a tea light and ta da! Cool and unique!
So that's it! You don't need to go overboard to make a statement!
Like the plaque in my home office says: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication".
