Planning to update your Christmas décor this year? These holiday decorating trends include a little something for everyone – from simple flora to maximalism. Regardless of what you choose, however, one thing is certain: you’re bound to have one of the most spirited holiday homes in the neighborhood.
Plaid has graced holiday homes since forever, but this season we’re seeing it in particularly sophisticated settings. No longer restricted to country homes and cabins, plaid is being added to mid-century modern, contemporary, and even glam interiors. Trim your tree with wide plaid ribbons or toss a few cozy flannel plaid pillows on the sofa.
In addition to its many health benefits, eucalyptus is becoming more popular in floral arrangements and home decor, and the holidays are certainly no exception to this trend. Its beautiful sage green color and aromatic qualities complement other greenery, such as fir and spruce. Combine with a few branches of holly berries for an elegant, organic addition to your Christmas tablescape.
The simplicity and white color palette of Scandinavian style creates a wonderful holiday interior. Woodland-inspired decor is cozy – think natural elements, such as deer antlers, branches, and faux fur – and adds rustic appeal to this Nordic style. These decoration ideas are particularly effective around the hearth or in the foyer.
Jewel tones are trending well into the holiday season, and this year we’re obsessed with plum. Alongside metallic accents, plum and other moody colors make for a sophisticated living room palette that works well for New Year’s celebrations, too. Look for Christmas ornaments and holiday decor in deep shades of sapphire and emerald with brass or copper detailing to finish the look.
If you love to mix and match prints and colors, you’re in luck: Maximalist décor is coming in with unapologetic confidence this Christmas. Bright hues, a mix of textures, and pattern play can all combine for a show-stopping display of holiday cheer. It may be cold outside, but we love bringing florals into the mix, too. Maximalism is a fun theme for holiday bedrooms, particularly if your existing décor is glam or boho in style.
Step aside silver – gold has a new Christmas companion. Dark neutrals have been trending all year long, so we’re not surprised to see an increased interest in black this season. Black and gold holiday decor is perfect for non-traditional themes and creates a sophisticated look that’s super festive when paired with glittering metallics. Try a black and gold Christmas wreath on your front door for a look that will welcome your guests well into the new year.
Vintage-inspired decor fills us with nostalgia for a classic Christmas, but these trendy looks are popping up in more and more contemporary spaces. Colorful bottle-brush trees are popular in modern spaces, and we love the re-emergence of delicate glass ornaments. Trim your Christmas tree with an eclectic mix of vintage ornaments and a tree skirt to finish the look.
