Tinsel is out (again) this year. Red, gold, and green will always be traditional festive colors, but if you want to stay up to date this year, blue is the color to add. Mix shades of blue with nature-inspired decorations and replace fairy lights with the warm glow of candles. Read on for more top tips.
Feed the Senses
This Christmas is all about the senses. Think about how you can bring Christmas into your home, to stimulate all 5. Feel the warmth and visuals with candles all over the house. Bake your own Christmas treats, so your house always smells of cinnamon. And play tasteful Christmas music. Why not try creating a playlist on Spotify with all your family favorites?
Bring the Outside Inside
This Christmas design palette incorporates nature. It’s all about twigs and pine cones creating warmth and natural smells. Natural-looking ornaments are the rage, with wooden candle-holders and lanterns to complement the ensemble. Try using natural sprays to really get that outside like smell in your home.
Blue Blue Blue
Think of the rich shades of blue that can bring your Christmas decorations to life. Whether blue ribbons, blue wrapped presents under the tree or blue decorations, blue is the color this year. From midnight blues to pale sky, all shades are to be utilized.
The natural look and feel can also be added to your Christmas table centerpiece. Mix eucalyptus with a few branches of holly berries, to give an elegant feel with a rich aroma. Add a few candles to bring extra warmth.
This is the year you can be confident in mixing and matching bold prints and designs. A combination of textures, big polka and lines can add warmth and color when it’s cold outside. Go glam, be boho. Bold is the way to go this year.
