This morning it’s the last of our Christmas inspiration posts and I thought I’d go full on and fabulous with modern Christmas decor. I love bright colours and even though it’s not traditional, I love seeing bright colours, piles of baubles and a fun take on the festivities. I’ve also included some other modern takes on Christmas styling, metallics and clean shapes and forms with fuss free lines. There’s plenty of inspiration here if that’s your thing, and don’t miss the last of the reader photos below.
- Super bright? Bright Baubles (Styled by Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar and Photography Matt Cant)
- A modern take on the traditional with this DIY Red wreath made of straws.
- How much fun for kids and geek chic lovers? Glitter dinosaur ornaments.
- Another DIY for those favouring simplicity… Gold pyramid trees which would also look great in any colour you choose.
- Just love this idea which would work just as well in a traditional home but really pops against the all-white background here. Red Bauble chandelier
- One of my favourite designers does a Christmas range… Window sticker
- White tree with bright decorations
- A wedding appropriate DIY but just as pretty in a White-on-White scheme – Doily wreath (DIY)
- Love the simplicity here… Wire and greenery wreath
Real Christmas Decor – Modern Metallics
So what do you do for Christmas decor when you’re a florist? Work your behind off is the answer to that one and so I was curious as to what Becky from Blossom would come up with, given her super stylish taste.

A flower-free Christmas is the result, with a low key tree, lots of lights and mercuried decor (including my favourite toadstools if you look closely) and it all looks just as magical a a real tree I think.
Equally stylish is the lovely Rachie from A chi Chi Affair who sent in her metallic decor featuring oversized baubles from Next which lend a modern look with their simple shape.
