Getting Ready For A Modern Christmas

The 411 on the decor and gifts you need for a mid mod holiday season.

The holiday season is finally here! After the year it’s been, we’re grateful to end 2020 on a more festive and hopeful note. Christmas celebrations (though they may be smaller this year) are only half the fun of the holiday season—there’s plenty of fun to be found in anticipating the special day too. What better way to do that than decorating and getting your home ready for a marvelously modern Christmas?

Modern Christmas Decor

If you want to give your home a classic Mid Century Modern Christmas look, there two different options: mod and minimal or colorful and kitsch. Either style will bring in the perfect amount of modern Christmas cheer and will pair seamlessly with your Kardiel furniture.

Modern and minimal Christmas decorations bring a subtle touch of festivity without overwhelming the senses. Imagine a carefully curated Christmas tree with un-fussy ornaments paired with sleek garlands and unfussy decor. Mod and minimal holiday decor uses natural textures like wood and wool and neutral (but still festive!) colors like green, silver, gold and white.

Mod + Minimal Decor Ideas

  • Pair a snow-inspired pillow or cozy throw over your favorite sofa (we love the Woodrow in Canvas) for a wonderfully wintry look.
  • Place one or two sleek vases filled with evergreens on top of your marvelously modern console for a celebratory entryway.
  • A white table runner with a touch of red or green will give your dining table the perfect Christmas feeling.

Colorful and kitsch decor embraces the merry and bright vibe of a vintage holiday and has tons of fun with it. For a kitsch Christmas, imagine a colorful aluminum tree filled with bubble lights and tinsel, space-age ornaments with fun shapes and motifs and retro holiday figurines or decor. This kind of decor embraces bold hues, especially turquoise, pinks and greens.

Modern Christmas Gifts

Whether it’s for the special someone in your life or it’s a treat-yourself kind of gift for you, Kardiel has plenty of beautiful and elegant options that are the perfect presents for the stylish savant.

For the bookworm, consider this spacious and well-styled bookshelf that’s sure to be worthy of the novels it holds. For the gracious host or hostess, why not get them an expansive and sleek table like this one? Though dinner parties may be delayed for now, statement tables as well made as Kardiel’s hold up fantastically to plenty of day-to-day use.

For the friend or family member who’s (still) working from home on the sofa, consider getting them a desk! Their posture will thank you. For the homebody who is embracing the safer-at-home life, bring a little luxury to their living room with a show-stopping sofa. Or, for the parent who has been nothing-but-stressed since March, give them a little bedroom upgrade with these modern nightstands.

We hope you feel inspired to get ready for a modern Christmas, even if it looks a little different than Christmases past. From all of us here at Kardiel, stay safe and healthy and have a merry Christmas!
