The simplest decorations are the ones that speak to me the most, almost always. In a time when I do not necessarily feel like decorating for Christmas for personal reasons this year, simple string lights will create a festive feel without committing so much into a festive atmosphere. I combine mine with a few choice candles as well, scents that will calm the mind and create an overall warm welcoming feeling.

I am sharing some inspiring photos I found on Pinterest with string lights, where the result is minimal yet very engaging. Wrapping a few garlands of string lights around mirrors, a makeshift wooden star or a ladder, will bring soft light into the house, creating an almost fairytale like vibe. I opt for simple white ones so I can possibly leave up for a longer period of time throughout the year, not just Christmas, however they are a top pick when it comes to decorating for the upcoming holidays as well, no matter if the choice is a minimal or a more festive feel.
