I decided to change up my Christmas decor this year to eliminate red from the equation. I wanted to stick to a palette of green, white and woods. I have small touches of gold and grey as my other neutrals. I’ve been sharing little sneak peaks on my Instagram account, but thought I’d share a few with you all here too. Here is my subtle, modern Christmas shelf display. I don’t have a mantle, but I think this serves us just right. I loved the green striped knitted stockings from Target and decided to grab them for the kids. Their more traditional stockings are in their room this year where we have a white tree decorated with all sorts of kid ornaments.
At a recent trip to Trader Joe’s I picked up this little small evergreen tree that smells delicious. It is so feathery and whimsy, I just love the softness it added to the rest of the shelf decor.
I love my stack of Chatbooks that always will have a special spot on these shelves. The memories captured in them are priceless. My ‘4’ print
is so bold and simple that I felt I wanted to keep it in its usual spot. It is still one of my favorite prints…if you want to order one for your home head over to Gathered Nest Designs

I spotted this little guy at Hobby Lobby well before I even started thinking about decorating this year, but I just had to have him.
I loved the simplicity of this wood tree, also found at Hobby Lobby. I had thought of painting it, but refrained as I like the light wood contrast against the white and darker woods already on the shelves.
Keeping it simple this year has already proven to minimize my stress level. I love this season and always want my decor to look nice. For me, this is just right for us this year.
