The holiday season will inevitably look different this year, with fewer (if any) holiday parties, and family gatherings being limited. But that doesn’t mean the season has to be devoid of holiday cheer! In fact, we say that it’s all the more reason to go all out on decor this year, and make our homes a place of joy and delight!
Bringing our community joy through design is always something we strive for at Modsy. And, this holiday season, finding a little extra joy at home is especially important.

Explore Our Holiday Decor Collections
Want to dig a little deeper into our three holiday collections and get some holiday decorating tips? Look no further. Our three looks—Hygge, Traditional Charm, and Glitz + Glam—cover a range of styles. They all have a trendy, of-the-moment twist, while still being effortlessly approachable. And comfort is at the heart of all three looks—which is something we all need from our homes right now!
The Hygge Collection
Our Hygge Collection will bring loads of warmth and comfort to your home. Hygge is a Danish word for a feeling of coziness and comfort. It’s a concept that’s all about embracing life’s simple pleasures, which promote feelings of well-being and contentment. In decor, a Hygge design style is all about coziness, comfort, and warmth. That’s why this collection is full of plush materials like velvets, furs, and chunky knits. We’ve layered all of these plush pieces together with organic shapes and natural materials for your coziest winter yet.
The Key Elements of Hygge Style
Layers of Texture
A layered look is key to acing this style. So, pile on the pillows and textiles! We’ve curated the perfect mix to make layering effortless. You can pick and choose one or two of your favorite pieces—or go for the full pack! The key here is choosing pillows with a mix of different materials, which adds depth and contrast. It ensures you have a space that’s perfect for snuggling up all winter long!
A High-Contrast Neutral Palette
A neutral color scheme is key to pulling off a Hygge look. It helps create calm and cozy vibes in your space. But bringing in high-contrast elements helps energize the look and add a little bit of drama. And don’t forget to add a few pops of greenery or leather to give your Hygge home some extra warmth!
A Sense of Cozy Calm
Cozy calm is what this style is really all about. Lean into this sensibility with more pared-back styling. Other than your cozy textiles, keep things simple with just a few candles to help set the mood. (Is there anything cozier than sitting under a blanket, with a favorite beverage and book in hand, basking in flickering candlelight??)
The Traditional Charm Collection
Get festive with a classic array of reds, plaids, and seasonal greenery. Our Traditional Charm collection is all about indulging in nostalgic comforts and your warmest holiday memories. That’s why we incorporated some Christmas decor classics in this look—a red color scheme, pine garlands, reindeer—but gave it a modern twist with some high-contrast moments throughout the collection.
The Key Elements of Traditional Style
Who says you can’t mix different plaid patterns? If you’re going for a classic holiday look, we’re all about that plaid on plaid. These various plaid patterns evoke a feeling of being at grandma’s house during the holidays. Plaid decor is comforting and creates a very inviting look. Go for more of a classic holiday look with a traditional palette of cherry reds—or deviate from the norm with a mix of non-traditional colors!
A Twist on Classic Holiday Motifs
This look has traditional style at its roots—but we’ve given it a 2020 spin. Find holiday decoration motifs like reindeers and sleds but in more subtle forms that can be on display all winter long.
The Glitz + Glam Collection
Wrap your home in luxurious materials, bold jewel tones, and metallic shine. Our Glitz and Glam Collection will instantly infuse your space with chic but playful elegance. This take on holiday decor 2020 is far from traditional—kind of like this whole year. We like the idea of going for something unexpected this holiday season, with a more indulgent spin on comfort.
The Key Elements of Glam Style
Moody Jewel Tones
A moody palette of rich jewel tones is definitely a different take on holiday decorating—but one that feels no less festive. This rich and luxurious color palette manages to feel both cozy and indulgent. Opting for jewel tones with earthy undertones keeps the look feeling festive and fresh.
A Bit of Sparkle
Metallics bring a definite sense of holiday festiveness! Gold and silver accents make this look shine, and contemporary Christmas decorations like these milk glass trees and starburst mirrors give the holidays a modern twist. This is also a look that can easily stretch into the new year—which is great if you want your decor to last beyond the winter holidays.
Velvet on velvet? We say yes. Embracing the velvet decor trend is the perfect way to up the glam factor in your space. This material has a bit of shine and reflects light—which is perfect for winter months. But don’t stop at velvet! Layer in faux fur throws and even a sheepskin rug for extra cozy and chic warmth.
