The holidays offer us a chance to spend time with our families, stuff our faces with some hearty meals and decorate our homes to mark the occasion. With Christmas being the most wonderful time of the year, join us as we explore some of the dominating Christmas decor trends of 2018, sharing the Christmas home accessories, tips and tricks to help transform your home into a winter wonderland.
Rainbow Christmas tree decor
You will need to get more Christmas baubles for the colours near the base of the tree and the trick is to stick to a colour palette you really like personally, otherwise you can add the ‘rainbow’ trend to your Christmas home decor ideas by creating a gradual spectrum of colours in this way.
Gold cutlery, metallic candle holders and ornaments, and even beaded placemats go well with mini, copper Christmas baubles for your tree. Christmas tree ribbons and florals in gold, silver and copper provide that beautiful shimmer, marking a number of ways to create the perfect metallic-inspired Christmas decor.
Plaid Christmas furnishings offer a warm, soft and rustic appearance, accounting for the perfect accompaniment to the holidays. Inject a country/cosy feel to your decor with these traditional Christmas accessories and spruce up your sofa with wool throws and cushions. Plaid Christmas stockings just waiting to be opened on Christmas morning complete this look.
During the holidays lighting is essential for setting the right mood. With the addition of luxury Christmas accessories to the Christmas lantern – such as LED lanterns – you can create light, atmosphere and warmth with the flick of a switch. Pair with Christmas candles, festoon lighting and table/floor lamps for the ultimate welcome for any guests over the holiday period.
While it might seem conventional to decorate with stars, Christmas decor trends for 2018 are dedicated to the celebration of the classic interior with a modern twist. Mix and match textures, materials and sizes to play with the traditional shape. Star lighting, hanging star lanterns and even abstract star ornaments give classic decor items a contemporary feel.
Christmas decor trends follow on from the popular interior decor trends of 2018, taking us back to our earthy roots. The beauty contained in the outdoors is brought indoors, with wooden Christmas home accessories, while the natural shades and materials will perfectly complement the crisp, fresh snow and the cosy glow in your home. Kick things off with your dining table and emulate the outdoors with a tablescape featuring wooden plate chargers and rustic cutlery.
Festoon lighting makes for the perfect illumination for your rooms, emitting a warm, soft glow as opposed to harsh, bright lights. For more unique decor, wrap festoon lighting around your Christmas tree or even drape over mirrors and wall art to create a cosy atmosphere.
Black and gold
Black and gold colours can prove to be utterly marvellous if you’re looking for classic, sophisticated and luxurious Christmas home accessories; from gold ribbons on the tree to black Christmas baubles and even tableware. This decor trend is truly sumptuous, proving to be popular with West End customers.
