Minimalism is perhaps the most popular trend in decor and even lifestyle today. It's all about simplicity, naturalness and elegance. If you love this style of decor and use it extensively in your home, you might want to do the same for your holiday decor. We've put together a few ideas on how to decorate a Christmas tree in a minimalist style that might inspire you.
First of all, think about the choice of the tree itself. A natural Christmas tree not only looks beautiful and smells great, but is also more environmentally friendly. Most of the trees sold are grown on special plantations and are cut down without harm to the environment. But if you want an even more environmentally friendly option, then use the so-called “composite Christmas tree”, that is, a Christmas tree made from spruce or pine branches. Such a tree smells just as wonderful and has a lively natural look, besides, it is cheaper than a cut one.
A natural tree is an ornament in itself. In 2023, it is worth limiting the number of decorations and exposing the natural beauty of the tree.
You can completely abandon Christmas decorations and decorate the Christmas tree only with white lights. This decor gives the tree a very natural look, and this is minimalism.
In a minimalist or Scandinavian interior, the tree will look great without decorations. However, it should be placed in a large wicker basket.
If you still want some decorations, you can hang black and white — these are traditional colors for a minimalist style, and they can be applied with various prints and images.
Sleek wood ornaments and wooden beads will give your Christmas tree a Scandinavian, minimalist look with a touch of country style, which is also very trendy right now. A Christmas tree decorated with wooden beads, white ornaments and a white faux fur skirt looks very natural and stylish.
Simple decorations made from natural materials also fit into modern trends. In the 2023 season, Christmas tree decorations made of paper and cardboard, wood, glass, lace, or dried fruits will be in fashion, which will make your Christmas tree more individual. It can also be coned. They can be used to make traditional toys, garlands, or balls. Pictures of animals carved from wood or made from recycled paper also look great on the Christmas tree. Stars made of wood and paper snowflakes look beautiful on a green Christmas tree.
If the tree seems boring to you, add some decorations in a brighter color, such as classic red.
Choosing one color for the whole Christmas tree is not only a bold and stylish look but also incredibly easy to do. Either buy several of the same Christmas decoration sets or paint your own. A rich red is an excellent choice as it contrasts beautifully with the green of the Christmas tree.
The solid color of Christmas decorations looks very sophisticated, and the contrast between the sheen of the needles and the velvety soft finish of the matte red balls is deeply satisfying!
The Christmas tree in gold and white is an elegant Christmas decoration that is suitable for interiors decorated in different styles. The golden white Christmas tree is very attractive and aesthetic, and at the same time easy to implement. It is enough to hang simple white decorations on the Christmas tree — balls, icicles. To make the Christmas tree look minimalistic and spectacular, the golden color can be represented with the help of single-color yellow lamps, which from afar will resemble golden lights.
No matter what kind of Christmas tree you have (large/small, natural tree / artificial spruce), where it will stand and what toys it is decorated with, the most important thing is not to forget that we are decorating the Christmas tree for the New Year 2023 in a good mood and in the company of the most loved ones. After all, it is emotions, impressions from spending time together that are remembered for many years, and not toys and a festive table.
