While I know this time of year we are all jolly and decking the halls with red and green and all things sparkly. But there’s something that I actually love about black holiday decor. It feels a little minimalist, versus maximalist. And a bit more modern and cool, instead of traditional. If you’re looking to try something different with your holiday decorations this year, here are some black Christmas decor ideas done right.
Black Christmas Decor Ideas Done Right
There are some fun ways you can incorporate black Christmas and holiday decor into your home this year. Whether you want to jump all in or just add some touches of it, here are some great ideas.
Black Wrapping Paper
Try wrapping all your presents in black paper and adding colorful ribbon. This feels so chic and modern. And you can really have some fun with the ribbons to match your current tree theme.
If you’re already doing metallic ornaments, adding a bunch of black ones into the mix will be super easy to recreate this look. An ombre ornament placement could also be really fun. While I have not seen an ombre tree like this one before, I wonder if you can do a little spraypaint DIY on a cheap plastic tree to have something you can get creative with.
A monochromatic Christmas tree always feels very sophisticated. And you can 100% give this a try with black, charcoals and silver ornaments.
Black And Metallic Tablescape
A black and copper tablescape is such a nice departure from kitschy red or green. A black tablecloth really feels different for the holidays, but when you add the right pieces that feel festive, it pulls it all together.
This is definitely a more sophisticated color scheme that will also stand the test of time. As in, you can totally leave it up through New Years and no one will know the difference. I did this here with all metallics for Christmas and New Years and it worked perfectly.
Decorate Other Parts Of Your Home
Last but not least, a little entryway update that makes your whole home feel just festive enough. I have a bench in my office with a gallery wall and this is such a smart idea. Just swap out your everyday pillows with holiday-themed ones and maybe update a photo or two. Voila, it becomes a perfectly festive but not overdone entryway.
In conclusion, if you have been debating working with some black decor for the holidays, let this be your inspiration to finally do it. It feels super cool and modern and is a nice change of pace from all the red and green.
