Looking for ideas to decorate your home this Christmas to get into the festive spirit? I’ve been doing my research (early, of course!) and I found some fantastic tips from Personalised Gifts Shop. They’ve compiled a list of the biggest and best Christmas decorations trends this year and I can’t wait to share them with you. It’s never too early to start planning your festive décor, so check out which two major trends are popular this year, and how you can get the look in your own home.
Nordic Hygge style is still big
The calmness and serenity of the hygge style can easily be added into your home for Christmas. To start off you want to choose your base colours: eucalyptus green and warm grey, combined with navy, charcoal and dark denim blue. To warm up this look, add colours such as rich browns, leather, wood and a pop of dusky pink, which will add an earthy element and natural elegance.
Choose decorations which are natural – materials such as scandi-style bleached woods, dried foliage, and coarse fabrics are ideal to create focal points in your home and encapsulate the hygge trend. If your planning your festive tablescape, mix in crackled glazes and crystalized surfaces on ceramics to create perfect table decorations. The hygge style works for a laid-back and peaceful take on Christmas decoration, but remember to keep patterns subtle, adding simple soft furnishings and accessories. Here are some of my favourite rustic decorations:
Glitter all the way
If Hygge is too laid back for your taste, and you like something that pops with plenty of sparkle, then the popular glitter trend we had this summer will be perfect for winter too. Add vibrant turquoise and lilac shades to classic combinations of crimson and forest green for something a little different this year. Combine this with sheer acrylic and glass baubles for a thoroughly modern look.
Mix in touches of orange and magenta to create a juicy burst of colour, and don’t forget the retro tinsel – soooo twinkly inside the branches of your tree! You can still get out those classic glittery baubles and sparkly encrusted ornaments – this vibrant trend is a great way to mix old styles with new decorations. Want your dinner table to stand out? Use rainbow glitter, sequins and sparkles against bright crockery to create a party feeling with your tablescape.
