There’s so much available out there, it can be hard to decide what to spend your hard earned money on.
Choosing a theme or style is really, really helpful, and in my opinion, it’s the best and easiest way to create a look that you will love. It will also help you choose a colour scheme, so let the theme guide you.
And when it comes to themes…go hard or go home!
You need more than two or three items to really bring a look together.
Buy several items that strongly show off your theme, and then use what you have already have, with similar colours and textures to create the look you are after.
Here is a collection of the themes that are trending this Christmas season. Of course there are many more out there, but these caught my eye in stores, catalogues and online.
1. OWLS, BIRDS, FOXES, SQUIRRELS AND BEARS
(lots of tree ornaments available, but also seeing these on tableware, linens, gift wrapping, gift sets, clothes, ok pretty well everything!)
(table linens, ornaments, bows, garlands)
3. NATURALS and WOODLAND THEME
(items made with twigs, pine cones, sliced logs, faux and real greenery, also lots of linens and tablewares with this motif)
(wall art, ornaments, table wares and linens, wrapping papers, gift tags, greeting cards)
5. BLING AND SPARKLE
(the “Frozen” look is stunning, huge selection, especially ornaments, also gift sets)
(great patterns, reds and whites, lots of items available in this style, vintage vibe)
(the trend is there, but the selection is not huge,lots of santa gnomes around, I think this is one of those themes to build on over the years)
8. STYLE MASH UP
(mixing two very different styles of decor together)
I love this idea!
Some examples are:
naturals + bling
naturals + modern
burlap + bling
nordic + modern
So there you have it. Some great ideas to inspire your Christmas decorating this year.
Personally I am loving the felted birds. I picked up some nice ones at Target, which had an excellent selection of most of these themes by the way!
Have you noticed any new trends in holiday decor this year that are not on this list?
Do you change your decor style to go with the trends, or do you have a chosen style, theme or colour palette that you rely on and build on from year to year?
