Cheery christmas wall decor ideas

Wall decor inspiration to put you in the holiday spirit!

The happiest month of the year is upon us! With Christmas just around the corner, there are so many things to plan and do – baking, getting and decorating the most beautiful Christmas tree, buying gifts for your loved ones and having a jolly good time along with it all. For those of you celebrating, Christmas is a great occasion for friends and family to come together. While the Christmas tree is the centrepiece that demands utmost attention, you might want to consider putting thought into Christmas wall decor to complete the festive ambience (and also for the gram!). You can stick to the traditional red-green-white theme, or go with an entirely different theme – the choice of colour palette depends solely on you. Here are eight modern Christmas wall decor ideas blended with the traditional colour scheme that is beautiful and extremely doable!

A White Christmas With A Dash Of Cherry Red

In a bright white living room, a colour like cherry red is easy to highlight; it is indeed extremely effective at that! Petite Christmas wall decor, such as cute wall hangings or paintings, look extremely vibrant and festive! With a bright colour scheme, you can choose to go for minimal decor which isn’t overpowering.

A Merry Christmas Indeed

You can see just how pretty these traditional Christmas wall decor pieces look against a rustic background! You can stick to the traditional white and red to complement the green of the tree, or try out not-so-Christmassy colours for the traditional decor cutouts. The ladder placed against the wall too is quite trendy, given that it’s so easy to install and decorate. Buy this decor, or better still, make this easy DIY Christmas wall decor with your family!

Ambient Lighting For Christmas Wall Decor

Have you ever seen the lights failing to brighten up the festive mood? You may deck up the bulbs in the pattern of a Christmas tree, or shapes inspired by the festival – stars, snowflakes or Santa Claus! This design especially works if your walls are in a darker shade. The classic bulbs and classy decor make for a refreshing and modern decor for Christmas.

The Christmas Wreath

Traditionally, the wreath is placed on a door, but it looks equally good on the wall! Similarly, stockings that usually go by the fireplace also make for great Christmas wall decor! We recommend using an actual wreath made from natural materials for a better Christmassy feel. You can also reuse one from the previous year’s decoration – nothing better than to mix sustainability with festivity!

Thanks to their innate beauty, these twinkling fairy lights can be used anywhere as decor. When suspended vertically, the pretty lights also enhance other decorative Christmas items on the wall.

Golden Stars For Christmas Wall Decor

Gold instinctively promotes festivity, so why not include it in a big way for creative Christmas wall hanging decorations? The five-point golden stars classify as a minimal piece of decor on the one hand, but their bold size makes them a striking central piece of decor. The colour gold plays up on darker hues, like the emerald green sofa furnishings, and adds a sophisticated glittery appeal through decor.

Keeping It Minimal With Wreaths

You needn’t always go all out with festive decor! Sometimes, the best thing to do with decor is to keep it simple. The variety of wreaths used for Christmas wall decor – all of different sizes and designs – help in keeping the Christmas decorations uncomplicated, yet beautiful.

Christmas Greetings On The Wall

It is most often the simple things that make a big difference. Your Christmas wall decor can simply be in the form of elaborate lettering on a writable wall – this could be a fun DIY project for your family! Alternatively, you can look for stickers that can be pasted on the wall. What else do we need when we can make the walls look pretty and spread some cheer!
