Holiday Decor: Natural and Neutral

The holidays are officially in full swing but we’re headed home to San Francisco this year to spend them with our family. Initially, I wasn’t planning to decorate the Casey Casa since we just got things settled. But I couldn’t help but add a little holiday decor to our living room, since we finally have a fireplace! This year, I kept things natural and neutral and relied heavily on fresh greens to bring the spirit of the season. Scroll to the end for all the details on how to achieve this natural, neutral holiday decor for your home.

Holiday Decor Sources:

Wreaths + Garland  (less than $10 each!) from Trader Joe’s. I doubled up the garland for fullness and used three stands of lights for the span of the mantle.

Stockings (white plaid with fringe, black plaid with tassel) from the Hearth and Hand collection at Target. Both patterns are sold out on line, but most stores near me still have both in stock. At just $13 a piece – it’s worth checking!

Black and white striped ribbon to hang the wreaths. Okay, fine, it’s technically navy – but I wanted it to be black. You can’t tell when it’s hung.

Black and white plaid bow ribbon for the wreath on the mantle. Sold out online, but you can find it in the Magnolia Home holiday decor section of Target – or here in green and black.

Green geometric vase is from McGee and Co. It’s perfectly beautiful sitting out empty, which I love. I like everything in our home to serve multiple functions. It’s sold out now, but this is a personal favorite too. If you want green – the Magnolia Home version is dreamy (and big!).

Chunky knit blanket is actually one I made at a fun workshop last week. However, you can find them here, here, and here. It’s worth the upgrade to merino wool. The polyester version pull apart easily.

Mid Century Candle Stick is from CB2 and I use it year round as a sculpture piece.

Fringe Basket  (on sale here) I used for the nordic pine tree is so soft and neutral, I’ll use it the rest of the year to hold blankets – definitely not just holiday decor.

Marble Coffee Table complements my natural neutral holiday decor this year with it’s silver base and snowy white top. It’s the perfect size to walk around. Also available in a pretty brass finish.

Woven Tray is from McGee and Co. and we have them in three shapes and sizes. They are SUPER sturdy so they actually work to hold holiday cocktails or cake or cookies or candy or anything else festive.

Black Catchall is a super chic inky black and is the perfect size to let my wood beads from or South African honey moon spill over. Shocker – it’s also from McGee and Co.

Black side table is the perfect stand for our little nordic pine, but I especially love this accent table because the top lifts out to be a tray and is under $100.

Knitted poufs stacked in the corner are perfect for when we have game night. We love sitting by the fire with these two to lean against.

Firewood basket was picked up at Homegoods for like $2o (this is the larger of the two sizes). Similar ones here  and here, but I really love this one.

Roger Moore 007 print came from this Etsy shop and it’s in this gold frame.

Other sources: Sorry, the woven chairs are vintage I snagged on Craigslist. The giant paper sculpture above the fireplace was a recent find at Homegoods – but it was from an independent artist (which I loved!).


If I skipped anything – please let me know! Leave your questions below and I’ll make sure to get you what you need right away. We’ll soon be enjoying the beautiful Bay Area and will leave our new home to our favorite dog sitter to enjoy our natural neutral holiday decor.
