For many, the joy of the holiday season starts with the decorating of their abodes. The generic themes that use red, green, and gold elements, however, can make some holiday decorating themes quite passé. Here, we have compiled a list of rarely used motifs that will bring a different kind of festiveness to your home.

1. Rose Gold

The rose gold jewelry trend reached peak levels during 2017. Why not incorporate your favorite tone in this season’s festivities? Pair rose gold décor with white and spread elements of the colored metal throughout the space.

2. Modern

To do modern Christmas décor, skip the basic geometric shapes and opt for clear glass, shiny chromes, and extraordinary shapes.

3. Retro

Throw it back to your childhood and decorate the way your parents and grandparents did. Set up your Christmas tree with a combination of muted neons and silver metallics like Amy of Mod Podge Rocks.

4. Rustic

Instead of using traditional rustic elements such as dried wood, leaves, and pinecones, opt for fresh fruits and other organic touches. Lemons, tangerines, and oranges bring color to your space and also smell fantastic. You can even incorporate this year's kitschy pineapple trend.

5. Eclectic

Reds and greens can be a little boring when done annually. Inject festivity into the holidays by using eclectic pieces like this peacock feather Christmas tree. Continue the theme by decking your halls in shocking tones such as fuschia and aqua.

6. Mixed Metals

If the rose gold trend doesn't appeal to you, then maybe mixing metals may suit your liking. Mix gold and silver décor from years past and add gunmetal and copper to this year’s display.

7. Classic Red

Don’t put away the chinoiserie just yet! Decorate like Tory Burch, who confesses: “We use our vintage Imari china which has red and blue in it, so I like to pick up on those colors with dahlias, garden roses, hydrangeas and Ilex berry branches from the farmers market.” She continues, “Tall holly branches like Ilex make a dramatic statement in hallways or entryways.”

8. Minimalist

Declutter your home and try a minimalist meets rustic theme. For your Christmas feast, display an evergreen garland in place of a table runner and centerpiece.

9. Christmas Village

If you love a good Christmas Village every December, why not decorate the entire house with the adorable miniatures? Try this Martha Stewart DIY Christmas Village wreathe to complete the theme.

10. Ombré

Let the Christmas tree act as your ombré centerpiece, then decorate with colors that feature the same palette. Black and white gradient is a great start to the theme, but silver to champagne ombré will add that touch of glitz to the season.
