Get inspired by Christmas decorations from some of our favorite Midwest bloggers.

Consider us Insta-inspired! From fresh takes on traditional trimmings to the modern and minimalistic, Midwest bloggers know how to deck the halls. Check out some decor inspiration from ogle-worthy Instagram accounts.

Gwen Hefner (aka @themakerista) mixed monochromatic and metallic ornaments for a sophisticated look in her library. (Love this wall color? Consider this a sneak peek into a story on Gwen in our January/February issue!)

@frenchlarkspur brings a touch of France to Illinois with vintage French stockings, hung from a minimalistic wooden ladder.

Color is the name of the game for @abeautifulmess' Christmas tree. The gradient from golden yellows to silvery pinks is a whole lot of beautiful!

The classic wreaths on the windows of @mamawatters (Amanda Watters)'s Missouri home are straight from your favorite storybook or Christmas movie.

Who needs a mantel? Michigan-based bloggers @freshexchange (Megan and Mike Gilger) hung their family's stockings from the ladder with care. Plus, the garland is handmade.

Twinkly lights and a roaring fire create an inviting scene at the Indiana home of Whitney Utesch (@carpendaughter).

@thefauxmartha (Melissa Coleman) proves that less is more. Her loyal followers are on the hunt for the red stand she bought last year from a local Minnesota tree farm.

Gwen (@themakerista) counters her traditional Christmas tree with this fun "kids' tree" decorated with a blend of family ornaments and character Hallmark ornaments her children love. Can you spot Frozen's Anna?

@mandimakes (Mandi Johnson of Ohio) ditched a hand-me-down tree from her parents and went white this year. Colorful ornaments and garland reflect Mandi's fun personal style.

It's all about atmosphere. The lights of @amyrosethielen's tree cast a warm glow on the earthy wood in her Minnesota home.
