With dialed-down decorations, a classic garland looks chic and relaxed, not prim. Instead of braiding together boughs, save a few hours and buy a rope of pine. Keep things low-key with asymmetrically placed ribbons and unkitschy ornaments, like these metallic stars and snowflakes. TO INSTALL Put two small eye hooks at the top corners of the door frame and drape the greenery over them.
