Planning for a Season of Joy
After more than a year of social isolation, many families are looking forward to entertaining and having guests in their home this holiday season. And if you ask us, it’s never too early to start decorating. Whether you are planning for a house full of family or a smaller, more intimate gathering, festive touches can be added to increase the delight. Check out these three holiday decorating trends for inspiration.
Decorate Using the Simplicity of Nature
The calming effect of nature can fill your home with natural foliage and elements. This trend focuses on materials maintaining their natural shape. The growing popularity of asymmetrical wreathes, and rustic accents like ornaments, garlands and more make this a warm and cozy trend. Think fresh, fragrant greenery, dried foliage combined with birch, woven wicker, straw and cane webbing. With a color scheme of earth tones and shades of green like eucalyptus, pine, sage, heather green or sage, berries and dry fruits can add pops of color. Plus, if you’re into DIY – this trend is an easy one to take on yourself to create hand-crafted décor.
Embrace Vintage Nostalgia
After more than a year in quarantine and through the pandemic, we’ve learned to appreciate the small things. We’re embracing connection and that is coming through with a resurgence of vintage and nostalgic holiday designs. (Raise your hand if your grandmother had a ceramic Christmas tree because those are continuing to make comeback.) This includes traditional color palettes that include shades of red, green, gold and silver. Think classic and vintage styles that give a nod to holiday folklore, Scandinavian Christmases and the winter equinox as inspiration. Complete your style with buffalo plaids, florals, embroidery, and beadwork.
Don’t Be Afraid To Go Monochrome
One of the Pantone Colors of the Year for 2021 is Ultimate Gray and it’s making a play as a major color scheme for the holidays. An approach for minimalism preferences, monochrome decorating gives an elegant, modern style to a home. Paired with white, you have a direct association with the ultimate holiday décor: snow. Add in some small touches of one color like gold, red or green for a beautiful, festive design.
