Sometimes It’s Hip to be Square: 15 Holiday Decor Ideas for Modern Homes
Geometric patterns, shapes, and designs are pretty much the new black. Or, in terms of Christmas, they’re the new snowflake, the new holly, and the new poinsettia.
2. Geometric Wooden Ornament ($25): Is it weird that we kind of want to wear these ornaments? Love the different colored facets on each ornament.
6. Mint and Silver Triangles Gift Wrap ($9): You can never go wrong with a geometric triangle pattern (as you’ll see ring true throughout this roundup) and we’re loving this combination of mint and silver.
10. Geometric Forest ($12): Speaking of geometric trees, we’re digging the pixelated aspect of this roll of geometric tree wrapping paper.
11. Christmas Tree Wall Decals ($50): More trees, please! Rock Christmas decor all year round in the form of these easy-to-apply wall decals.
15. Geometric Wooden Houses ($12-$17): And finally, minimalist wooden houses that can add a bit of modern holiday cheer to just about any spot in your apartment.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
