Christmas is just around the corner, and there are so many ways to decorate your home for this festive holiday season. However, not all of them are ideal if you want a neutral feel. These days, neutral Christmas decor is all the rage because it gives off a soft and cozy feel. I’m loving it more now because the traditional red and green theme is just not my aesthetic. I prefer a more minimalist Christmas so this fits my style more.

If you’re not into the traditional red and green theme either, you’ve come to the right place because here I’m sharing 12 neutral Christmas decor ideas to add to your home for the holiday season without going overboard.

Neutral Christmas Decor Ideas

Check out these neutral holiday decorations as inspiration for decorating your own home.

1. Christmas Throw Pillows

If you like to keep your Christmas decor minimalistic, one idea is to invest in some good-quality neutral Christmas pillows. These throw pillows often come in neutral Christmas colors such as gold, white, and beige – and can be put on a couch or your bed. This is a great way to add a touch of festive decoration without going overboard and it adds a subtle bit of Christmas cheer. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also throw in some throw blankets on the couch to match or a pom-pom blanket for your bed.

2. Christmas Ornaments

Another favorite neutral Christmas decor in our home: Christmas ornaments. We fill our small-sized Christmas tree with plenty of these little guys, and we love how they brighten up the space. Having all different sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes is a good idea to make your tree look interesting! The Christmas tree is not the only place to display ornaments.

You can use these ornaments like bottle brush trees as decor separately and hang them on a wall, put them in a bowl on your coffee table, dining room, kitchen table, in bookshelves or even string them together to make a garland! There’s lots of creative ideas.

3. Garland

Speaking of garlands, these are a must-have for any Christmas home decor. You can buy this beautiful greenery from the store, or if you’re feeling fancy and want something unique, why not DIY it and make your own? It’s simple to go outside and cut small branches to resemble a garland – you can even paint them white for that neutral look. Then, just string them together with twine, florist wire, or thread and decorate your Christmas mantel or kitchen table with it. You can make it really stand out by adding a strand of Christmas lights!

4. Christmas Stockings

Christmas won’t be complete without neutral Christmas stockings by the fireplace. These are a great way to add some color to your Christmas decor without going overboard. Plus, most stockings come in a few neutral colors, such as cream, white and khaki, so that they won’t mess up your color scheme. White stockings are my go-to especially one with texture like the one below from West Elm!

5. Door Mats

Another Christmas decor you’ll definitely want to invest in is a festive doormat like this Happy Holidays doormat I bought for myself last year (definitely 5 stars!). Not only will your guests appreciate it, but it’s also great for getting the holiday spirit going every time you walk into your home. Plus, you don’t have to stop at one – consider buying a cute matching pair of two or even three to add some holiday cheer outside the home! They look great on the front and back door.

6. Neutral Colored Wrapping Paper

This idea might seem a bit strange for Christmas decor, but it can be an excellent way to style up your space without going all-out on the decoration. Why not buy some neutral Christmas wrapping paper and wrap your gifts in that? Presents under the tree can look great in all sorts of colors, so don’t feel obliged just to use red and green. Consider muted tones like white, khaki or black too – after all, it’s still the holiday season! If you’re feeling fancy, go for a metallic color for even more shine.

7. Candles

You can’t go wrong with candles and the holiday season – and this goes for neutral decor too. Why not add some white, silver, or gold-colored candles to your coffee table? This way, you’ll get a cozy feel when you’re watching TV on Christmas day or listening to Christmas music with the family. On top of that, try putting some neutral scented candles in your bathroom or bedroom to make your home smell like Christmas. Candles in general look pretty all year long.

8. Christmas Table Decor

For your Christmas table, you’ll want to go simple yet festive. The best way to do this is by using a few items such as neutral table runner, plates and glasses – and even napkins if you’re planning on eating dinner at the table. You can use plaid or tartan colors for these items for that extra touch of festive elegance too.

9. Pine Wreath

It wouldn’t be the holiday season without a pretty Christmas pine wreath – and, of course, you can decorate your house with one of these neutral ones. Pine wreaths are always a perfect addition to your neutral Christmas decor because they come in neutral colors like white, silver, and gold. It’s such a simple way to get into the holiday spirit.

You could also go for the traditional green wreath or make a DIY Christmas Wreath and decorate it with ornaments of neutral tones like pine cones, add some twinkling lights around it and then place it on your front door. Make this one of your fun DIY projects!

Hide your daily mug collection away because it’s time for these cute Christmas mugs! You can use them as part of your day-to-day decor or even present some warm drinks in them for family and friends on Christmas morning. Instead of the bright-colored mugs, opt for some neutral ones to transition your kitchen with the holiday season, or find ones that come with witty and funny quotes for added Christmas spirit.
