Decor Trends

Are you fed up with the same old Christmas decorations year after year and ready to switch up your default Christmas theme? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

We’ve scoured the internet for some of the most current and popular festive styles and collated them to help you get that inspired look you dreamed of! Whether you have a taste for clean lines and modern décor, or you prefer a more rustic cottage/farmhouse feel, we have just the looks for you.

1.Arctic Aesthetic

Are you longing for a white Christmas, but unsure as to whether it’s going to happen? Well, why not create your own in the comfort and warmth of your own home? Picture your whole living room floor blanketed in polystyrene balls, replicating freshly fallen snow; further complimented by the finishing touches of delicate white candles, or a statement wreath for your front door. Having an all-white Christmas theme doesn’t just contribute to the aesthetics either, it can present feelings of tranquillity and sophistication. The colour white’s association with peace and serenity infuses your home with a sense of calmness and relaxation, making your Christmas feel even more connected to the holiday season.

2.Sustainable Sparkle

Are you wanting to make your home full on festive, but worried about harming the environment? If this resonates with you, then maybe it’s time to consider a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to how you decorate your home for the holiday season! There are many ways you can make your house more sustainable, without compromising those all-important aesthetics that come with decorating your home for Christmas. One way in which you could start making your home eco-friendlier is by swapping older halogen lights to LED bulbs. This does not only benefit the environment as they last longer, but they also use less energy, and in many cases look much better than traditional bulbs.

A Christmas tree is arguably the main tell-tale sign that you have decorated for the Christmas season. Why not make your Christmas tree even more eco-friendly by using a potted tree that you can reuse year on year? Or maybe reduce your carbon footprint and create an eco-friendlier style by replacing and/or adding to your tree’s decorations with dried fruit. By drying out neatly cut citrus fruits like oranges, you can create your own scented decorations. This not only helps the environment, but also adds a more personal touch to your beloved home in this special season.

3.Cosy Cottage

If you own a farmhouse, cottage, or just love the feeling of a more rustic ambiance, the ‘cosy cottage’ theme may be the one for you! With soft knitted blankets and flickering candles, this rustic theme can make your home feel warmer and more inviting than a traditional Christmas theme. Just picture it, a crackling fireplace with stockings hanging above, the comforting smell of cinnamon and a warm blanket. This storybook feeling is easily achievable for those who feel as though they want to switch into this style!

4. Classic Christmas

During the Christmas period, homes are filled with a wide variety of enchanting colours, hues and shades that infuse a festive feel. The most popularly used colours bring out a sense of tradition, with deep greens symbolising the typical Christmas trees, bright reds that are reminiscent of Santa’s iconic suit, and accents of gold evoking a feeling of elegance, mirroring the glow of lights and the flicker of Christmas candles. These classic colours are woven into the foundation of Christmas and can be present in all aspects of Christmas décor, adding to the magic that is the festive season!
