It’s hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner, but, SURPRISE, here they are! So, we’re kicking off the season with some of our favorite modern holiday decor. We’ve rounded up over 20 objects to deck your walls.

Go for the gold, er, bold, I mean. These Pantone Xmas Balls from Seletti will bring a colorful splash to any dull tree. You can get them individually here.

Doesn’t everything look better under a glass dome? This set of Modern Brass Forest Trees from DwellStudio certainly do. Simple tree forms hand made from brass and set on a waxed shesham base.

The Avvento ceramic candlesticks by Kähler Design come in varying shades of green and red so you can create your own little mini forest.

A playful little set of wood pieces that turn into three completely adorable snowmen. The Stackable Snowmen from fruitsuper design are made of 12 bits that you can mix and match to create a different snowman every time.


For those with little floor space for an enormous tree or just don’t want to deal with the hassle, these LED Trees from West Elm are for you.


We love this DIY that Erin Loechner and her husband Ken did and shared on HGTV.  They made non-traditional plywood stockings with magnetic boxes that can hold treats or greenery that go perfectly with their Scandinavian decor.


…and we can’t forget about the tree. Besides the amazing Pantone ornaments featured above, these Snowdrift Glitter Tree Ornaments from John Lewis encase a bottle brush tree within glass.


We love Treetopia for their awesome artificial trees and we’re happy to see that they have ornaments too! Keep your tree sparkling with these Moons of Mercury Iridescent ornaments.

Finnish designer Anne Paso designed the Lovi Ball for Lovi as a flat-packed postcard that you assembly into an adorable wood sphere that’s perfect for a tree. Available in two sizes, you can get them in white, black, or natural birch.


A fun project for the family, these D.I.Y. Geometric decorations from Dowse Design let you make 6 Christmas balls to add to your tree.

Inspired by photographs of real snowflakes, these modernized versions by Reiko Kaneko are made of fine bone china and come in three styles.

HRUSKAA makes the coolest himmelis, which are traditional Finnish ornaments made of straw. These are made from plastic straws but you still get the geometric and modern feel of the original designs. Available in various configurations and colors on Etsy.

Another standout design from Livingly, but this time for the tree. The Ice Crystals are a Danish Christmas classic made from intricately cut paper and hung from string.

Tree stands are usually, well, ugly, but not this Christmas Tree Holder from Born In Sweden. The star-shaped stand doesn’t require a skirt to cover it up because it looks good on it’s own. Available at Connox.

How lovely would all your presents be laid out over this Christmas Tree Blanket from ferm LIVING? The black/white triangular pattern will pop under your tree and will keep the needles off your floor.

Welcome your guests with a wreath on your front door or above your fireplace to show you’re in a festive mood. If the pre-made wreaths aren’t for you, you can always go about the DIY root. CB2 shows instructions on how to make this easy Bubble Wreath out of their clear glass bubble balls and it would look great on any wall. Originally seen on Curbly.

And last but not least, Home Depot shared their Hide-and-Seek Wreath in their Style Guide that takes PVC pipe and turns it into this wreath full of circles to house your ornaments and keepsakes in.
