MODERN, CONTEMPORARY and STREAMLINED CHRISTMAS

Modern Christmas theme

If your style is modern, contemporary or streamlined then fussy isn't your thing. These are huge terms, each with their own specific design genres, but to sum it up for me, these all fall into the category of clean lines, simplicity, orderliness, symmetry, structured, sculptural, with bold patterns or color choices (sometimes the choice being monochromatic which is a statement in itself). Look for texture, metals, fabrics, interesting lighting and contrast to infuse layering and exclamation points throughout these interiors and decor.
Give this style a peek...you might be surprised just how fabulous and versatile these ideas are!
I've seen amazing examples of Christmas decor this year that makes me yearn for an Eames Lounger

  2. Agree! But I have to admit, I might do a white tree with bright fun bulbs in one room next year!
