Throughout her space, designer Ginger Curtis puts a modern, black and white twist on traditional Christmas decorations. Using her home's contrasting black and white color palette as a base line for her design, Ginger added white stockings monogrammed with her family's initials and other Christmas decorations like the Christmas wreath and the Cypress tree in the corner of the living room instead of a traditional Christmas tree.
This rustic living room with stone walls and fireplace is all decked out for Christmas. Stockings are hung from the mantel with care while decorative trees, decorations, candles, and greenery draw attention to the illuminated Christmas star above. Two simple upholstered chairs up front provide a perfect sitting area for holiday guests. Blue and white patterned throw pillows add some winter glitz to the otherwise neutral room.
The homeowners' love of all things nautical is on display in their living room thanks to a maritime flag motif, which inspired the throw pillows on the sofas and inserts to the media cabinet's doors. A navy-and-white rug fits the theme and anchors the space. Navy and red stockings add a special Christmas touch that works with the nautical theme for a "Merry Time" Christmas.
Have fun mixing and matching every day decor with your holiday items for a seamless look. Choose items that reflect your current decorating scheme. A holiday stocking trimmed in gold will complement an existing table or bar cart. Add unconventional pieces like a modern peacock feather wreath for a new take on traditional Christmas decorations.

Menswear stockings are a great way to add a tailored touch to your holiday decor. To get the look, try a no-sew approach using iron-on adhesive tape, scissors and old sweaters or dress shirts. Those less likely to tackle this as a project can drop old shirts and sweaters off at their local dry cleaner or seamstress and have it done for a low cost.
This simple Country Christmas tree is ornamented with pine cones, brown glass balls, bronze disco balls, and letter and number stencils for a unique twist on traditional tree decorations. Brown paper packages tied with twine rest under the tree next to a wooden rocking horse. A yellow yarn wreath, light green polka dot stocking, and green stuffed toys add color against the dark drown painted brick wall.
