The world as we know it is a little grimmer than usual – the joy and festivity of the Christmas season can’t come soon enough.
With the big day just weeks away, now is the time to turn up the Christmas tunes, get into the festive spirit and devise the Christmas décor schemes that will see us through the season in the most wonderful way.
Whilst getting out the same, old Christmas decorations is a tack taken by many, investing in some new festive accessories and following the décor colour trends below that are so in this year could just put a spring in your step.
Those still dreaming of a white Christmas will adore this colour scheme. Using tinted glass, tarnished silver and frosted touches, this pared back Christmas colour scheme is far from boring.
The neutral base means you can really get creative with accent colours, but keep these light to complement the wider scheme. Powder blues, teals, and lilacs work particularly well with this delicate white theme.
Merry and bright
At the other end of the spectrum, this brighter, more colourful Christmas décor is guaranteed to inspire that cheerful Christmas vibe.
The Happy Housie offers plenty of inspiration with a gallery bursting with the merriest and brightest Christmas décor scenes.
You can experiment with colour like never before with this Christmas colour scheme, with a rainbow of baubles and decorations just as effective, impactive, and festive as an exotic, vivid collection of jungle-inspired greens, yellows, oranges, and deep purples.
The Art Nouveau trend is making a comeback on the interior design scene so it’s no wonder that it features in our rundown of trendy Christmas décor schemes.
A mixture of deep blues, teal, and gold, this Christmas colour trend exudes elegance and extravagance. It’s even a theme endorsed by Christmas advert legend John Lewis:
“Think of the architecture, painting, jewellery and glass from the highly ornate Art Nouveau period, and you picture its opulence and sense of glamour inspired by names such as Gustav Klimt, Georg Jensen, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Antoni Gaudí… Try mixing luxe materials, such as silk, cut-glass, velvet, marble and heavy jacquards against deep blues, yellows and metallics. Away from the tree, you’ll find beautiful wrap to give your gifts that extra special touch.”
Traditional and timeless Christmas décor is always in, and creating your very own cosy Christmas cottage is a great way to deck the halls for the festive season ahead.
Opt for a busy red and green Christmas theme or embrace more modern Scandi chic with red touches and natural foliage to add that cosy vibe to your home.
Use soft lighting to your advantage with this theme, and boost the warm and welcoming winter feeling that will make you feel more at home than ever this Christmas.
Craft has a huge part to play in this homely festive scheme too, especially when it comes to your Christmas tree. Discover more crafty Christmas decoration ideas here.
