Decorating the tree is one of the most important activities over the festive season, as it marks the start of the celebrations for many of us. Whether you have a statement tree or a more subtle addition to your room, choosing a consistent colour scheme will ensure that your additional decorations complement your existing decor.
If you fancy refreshing your Christmas theme this year, we have rounded up the biggest trends to introduce to your home this December.
‘The’ trend for Instagram influencers for 2020, Frosty luxe is perfect for those looking for a more grown-up decor this year. Choosing a neutral palette of white, cream and silver, this trend looks best paired with white artificial flowers, silver eucalyptus and glass statement baubles. Keep the tinsel safely locked in the attic for this trend, and replace with angels hair to add some much-needed sparkle. Add the finishing touches with warm white lights and champagne coloured ribbon to fill out any gaps.
2020 is the year we fell in love with the outdoors, and this has been reflected in how we are decorating our trees this year. Relaxed rustic is perfect for those who love a Scandi vibe for their home, as this trend features decorations that have a handmade feel and made from organic materials. Having a new theme doesn’t have to mean that it can’t be personalised- little ones will love decorating wooden baubles in the Christmas holidays ready to be hung on the tree.
The turbulence of this year means that many of us will be making the most of the festive period this year, and this means going over the top with the festive celebrations. Embrace the extra opulent trend this year by going big this year - from a bigger tree to extra-large decorations. Invest in statement items that have a luxurious finish, from beading to sequins. The best thing about this trend is there is no such thing as too much - just make sure your colour theme stays consistent to stop your tree looking messy.
A trend that continues to stand the test of time is a classic Christmas look - think red and gold, nutcrackers and pinecones. This is the perfect theme for those who want to add some nostalgia to your home. Add a modern touch by investing in fireplace and staircase garlands and personalised Fairisle stockings - traditional definitely doesn’t have to mean boring!
As you prepare your home for the big day, we would love to see your Christmas tree. Make sure you tag us in your photos!
