‘Tis the season for decorating! It’s time to deck your halls and fill that tree before the holiday season is truly upon us. With this in mind, we wanted to share with you 7 decorating trends that are gaining a lot of popularity this holiday season. So put on that Michael Bublé Christmas album and get ready to jot down these festive ideas!
When it comes to Christmas, we say the bigger the better! These decorations are not only a great way to save some money but also a wonderful activity for you and your kids. On her website, One Good Thing by Jillee, Jillee Nystul shares the easiest tutorial for making oversized ornaments out of simple plastic bouncy balls or your average inflatable beach balls. With a little bit of paint and some helping hands these decorations will come together in no time.
Some homeowners are bringing back the classic, rustic feeling of Christmas back home with these cute plaid decorations. You can find anything from stockings to ribbon decorated in this festive motif to help you bring a little rural aesthetic into your modern Christmas set-up! Just be sure to balance it out with some more neutral colours, or you may feel a little more “countrified” than you bargained for.
Metallics never go out of style! When used properly, these pieces can make some incredible, timeless decorations that will stun for years to come. Silvery tones are the epitome of elegance and blend incredibly well with gold pieces should you want to have some two-tone fun. Whether you invest in a big piece like a champagne-coloured wreath, or go for something smaller like a beaded pillow, we’re sure you’re going to love the look these bring to your home.
If you’re trying to establish a more natural look for your space this year, you may be happy to know that wooden accents are considered “in” this season! Wooden Wall Trees add an artistic element to your holiday décor that can’t be ignored. These whimsical additions are often laser cut to add intricacy and artistry, and – as a plus – can blend seamlessly with those metallic decorations we mentioned before.
You read that right! Neon decorations just have a certain something that we love. Even a simple collection of glass ornaments get a real boost from a neon makeover with fluorescent glitter. In fact, if you’re really looking to go all out, purchase a neon tree. You can get one in a retro shade like neon pink to help channel feelings of both the present and the past. If you’re worried that the colour may be a bit too much, opt for a small 2 foot version.
Many holiday decorations will often evoke the whimsy of winter animals, frolicking around in the fresh snow. Look for animal shaped ornaments made from soft fibres to really get that essence of cute woodland creatures in your décor. Or, for a more modern aesthetic, white lacquer deer and moose heads really create a glamorous winter lodge effect you really can’t beat.
Black Christmas Tree
If you haven’t heard about black Christmas trees yet, be sure to check them out soon. These man-made pines are blowing up all over social media with nearly 9,000 posts on Instagram alone with the hashtag #blackchristmastree! Despite all the attention, these pieces are still quite unique and have a mystical presence that is sure to catch the eye. With such a stark background, lighter coloured ornaments and delicate, white string lights really pop!
With everything from giant Christmas ornaments to black shaded pine trees, you’re sure to have some holiday décor people are going to notice. We hope this list helped to stir up some ideas for your space this holiday season. From all of us at Mosaik Homes, happy decorating!
