Whether it’s decking the halls and trimming the tree in our own home, taking in the décor of our favorite department store, or admiring the decorations around town, we absolutely adore the visuals throughout the Christmas season! Even after December 25th passes on the calendar, we still love taking advantage of the after-Christmas sales and saving on holiday items we can use in our display next year.
Thankfully, the gorgeous texture and tones of classic brick are a perfect match for the timeless motifs that we use to get in the Christmas spirit. From signature reds and greens and touches of nature to beautiful pieces that shimmer and shine, our favorite additions certainly make the season merry and bright. When it’s time to bring in the cheer, here are a few of our favorite Christmas arrangements on brick that you can pull from:
Hanging Stockings On Brick – If you are feeling overwhelmed when it comes to decorating for Christmas, start with this simple task and your mood will instantly improve: Hang stockings in anticipation of the big day! Whether you have a brick fireplace, mantle, or a brick accent wall, you can use stockings, branch trimmings, a garland, or your favorite decorative items to hang them in style. We recommend purchasing easy-to-use brick hangers to attach your stockings or stocking holders without drilling or leaving marks on your brick:
Snowy White Brick Christmas Decor – Contemporary, modern, rustic farmhouse, and industrial spaces look stunning with white brick and painted white brick, and these walls are also a perfect backdrop for a white Christmas display! Since the all-white visual reminds us of stepping outside on a snow-covered morning, use plenty of nature-inspired décor both real and fake. Christmas trees, wreaths, and arrangements with branches, leaves, pinecones, and holly berries are perfect for creating a winter wonderland indoors:
Rustic Design With Antique Brick – Since brick masonry can easily last over one hundred years, many older structures can feature distressed or antique exposed brick that plays perfectly into rustic decor. In these cases, you may opt to design your Christmas layout with a nod to time-honored traditions and textures, one that favors a more subtle feel than store-bought appeal. We love the juxtaposition of this modern-day Christmas tree next to the old-world brick fireplace complete with brass barrel firewood holder and woven baskets:
Christmas Brick Entranceway – We truly appreciate the businesses and commercial establishments that go all out for Christmastime! Even if we don’t have the resources to emulate similar levels of décor for our homes, we can take our favorite elements and try them on a more realistic scale. The flat finish of these red brick columns lends the ideal counterpart to the many shimmery baubles and ornaments within the Christmas trees and branch trimmings. This merry display features decorations on the rails, doors, stairs, and cladding, and reminds us to explore all the ways we can express our vision:
