Adding Holiday Decor to a Contemporary Space – The backsplash in this contemporary kitchen already has a vivid color so the goal is to select decorations that do not interfere with but complement the overall design – a “less is more” approach. – Kitchen and Text by Yumi Murayama, As seen in our 2020 Home for the Holidays Special Edition!
Lighting adds a little bit of sparkle and warmth to enhance the holiday mood in your home. A sparkling LED garland adds a festive touch with glam metallic details.
A white candle holder and scented candles give a feeling of warmth and bring a festive feel to the space.
Nutcrackers are classic decor items but are also great for adding holiday decor to a contemporary space. These toy soldiers are adorable and come in a variety of colors and range from traditional to vintage to modern. You can choose depending on the style you want to create. They would look great on the open shelves in this kitchen.
Milk glass trees have a similar geometric profile and color that complement the geometric backsplash and add a festive feel to the space.
It’s always nice to have greenery in your space and it adds life to your home. Garlands, seasonal flowers and other greenery are always a welcome addition to any space over the holidays.
