This holiday season, try something different. Instead of going over the top with your Christmas decor, why not take the minimalist Christmas decorations route? Not quite sure what that even means or looks like? We have you taken care of in this post.

Minimalist Christmas Decorations

Maybe you are traveling over the Christmas holiday, but still, want a little Christmas in your home to bring some joy before you leave.

The minimalist Christmas decorations still bring beauty to your home, but it just adds a kiss of decor here and there instead of drowning you in red and green!

You can still have a tree in your home, but think small. This is a great way to not break the bank as well.

Anissa has captured the minimalist Christmas decorations by sticking to the concept of bringing lots of greenery into her home.

Pine branches and logs most likely even add the smell of Christmas into her home.

Stockings are still hung by the fireplace with care!

Christmas Tree Minimalist Style

This precious mini Christmas tree is wrapped in kraft paper and has tiny wooden ornaments adorning the branches; it reminds us of the mini tree on our front porch in our Christmas Home Tour post.

A few candles in place of twinkling lights add so much warmth to the picture without the need for tons of decorations.

Not to mention hanging garland on the wall instead of around the tree brings a simple beauty to this home.

Minimalist Christmas Centerpiece Idea

Chippy paint, glass bottles, and mini wooden trees all on a dining room table give us all the best feels in a farmhouse. Each tree is cute, unique, and has such a southern elegance.

The tiny evergreen wreath around a bottle adds a perfect pop of Christmas spirit.

The minimalist Christmas tree look is perfect in this home.

The color palette is mostly made up of frosty whites, but the room looks so warm! The flocked Christmas tree with white lights is so inviting, and the single lit candle holds a delicate beauty.

And wrapping the base of your tree with a chunky knit blanket keeps the room looking at all kinds of warm and cozy.

Decorated Mirror Christmas Minimal Style

Jamie Dana decorated her hair salon with the minimalist Christmas decorations concept.

A few branches of eucalyptus over the mirror and a wooden tree on the shelf add just enough festivity to the salon.

It's important to not only keep the holiday spirit in your home but also take it to your workplace this year. It will spread so much cheer.

And who knew cacti could be Christmas-y!

Evergreen branches on top of a chalk painted piano make for the perfect place to place Christmas gifts under on the 25th.

Holly adds beautiful splashes of red to the delicate color of the piano.

And don't forget a cute place to hang your stockings!
