Christmas is a time for decorations that glitter and sparkle, but it’s also a time to be creative and experimental. Because while we ordinarily fly the flag for those more permanent decorative touches, like plush soft furnishings, classy kitchenware, or luxury interior door knobs, the temporary nature of Christmas decorations means we can all afford to be brave with our festive décor.
However, that doesn’t mean we don’t want to stick to a theme. And this year’s Christmas decorations are expected to go from maximilism to minimalism, so there’s something to suit everyone...
Going over and above
An inspiring way to get a lot of Christmas decorations in one space (but without looking cluttered) is to use your vertical space. And one clever way to do this is with foliage. Try hanging a beautiful branch from the ceiling in your dining room, and use this to hang long decorations down over your table, giving a gorgeous but sophisticated grotto feel.
If you want to go more minimalist (and stay on ground level), then layering up your dining table is an easy way to spark joy amongst your dinner guests. And it’s all been about gold in the tablescapes that have dominated Instagram this year, from golden centrepieces to gold candlesticks, to big gold serving platters for Christmas canapés.
With this year passing by in a blur, maybe it’s no surprise that we want to savour the coppery colours of autumn this year. Burgundy, mustard and rich russet reds have taken centre stage in lots of Christmas colour trends, and will give your home a distinctly decadent and opulent feel. This is a trend where you can offset the traditional holly and ivy with a few luxury pieces.
