Two Holiday Decor Launches for People Who Don’t Like Holiday Decor
No cheesy snowflakes or candy canes in sight.

If evergreen wreaths and mistletoe aren’t your vibe, you’re not alone. You’re also not out of options. The Citizenry’s and West Elm’s new holiday collections are made up of the perfect non-decorations. With subtle color palettes and a mix-and-match approach, the pieces can live a very full life outside of a storage container for the other 11 months of the year.
Featuring muted earth tones (think: olive green and navy blue), the seasonal launch from The Citizenry is wintertime for minimalists. A wood modular menorah can be used as individual candlestick holders every other day; gilded geometric ornaments make great wall hangings off the tree; and even the indigo tree skirt is neutral enough to not scream “Christmas” despite its purpose. Maybe wrap it around your fiddle-leaf fig when it’s time for the tree to come down? The collection has us wishing that stockings (the brand’s are quilted in on-trend red patchwork patterns) were more multifunctional.
Heather Taylor Home’s fall-winter drop for West Elm offers the same versatility. Her signature gingham throw pillows, this time in beige and hunter green, will keep your sofa cozy 24-7. And the red-and-cream–plaid table linens, while perfect for a festive tablescape, can still jazz up a normal lunch in February. We’ve already added the checked quilt to our carts.
