Every year, Christmas decorations occupy our thoughts because we always like to transform our interiors into a real festive cocoon. There are those who have their usual habits concerning the Christmas décor, and those who like to change the Xmas decor each year to create a surprise for family and guests. So, to know more about the trendiest decorative ideas for this Christmas 2012, follow this guide!
The traditional Christmas decoration always attracts both the young and the old! It is returning strongly this year, but did you know that, within this classic trend, there are some new nuances? In fact, the traditional marriage between red and gold warms the Christmas ambience and reminds of the Santa Claus stories told by the family. Also, the new trend in classic Christmas decoration is relying on a traditional Christmas with a Scandinavian inspiration—red and white—and also many wooden decorative items for a spirit of yesteryear that’s a very warm and friendly one. Anyway, the focus is on the Christmas traditional figures like a deer, Santa Claus, and snowflakes in a winter decoration where thick wool and faux fur will warm the atmosphere.
For some people, Christmas is not considered without a white coat. And if there is no snow outside, it is the Christmas decoration that will set the tone! Away from the cottage atmosphere that you would find in a snowy decoration in the mountains, this style of decoration is rather inspired by distant and fantasized lands where snow exists throughout the year. The interior decor takes a fairytale style with fake snow, glitter, silver garlands, and bright stars through the house. The idea is to create a palace where snow glistens to warm the white atmosphere of the decoration. This style is valuable for a chic and contemporary Christmas. To sweeten the ambience, use a few touches of pastel colors like very soft pink or very light blue shades that will be reflected on the silver decorations.
The gourmand style is the latest trend in Christmas decorations for an original yet very festive atmosphere! The house becomes a house of gingerbread and hosts countless varieties of sweets as a Christmas decoration. Balls become cupcakes and candy garlands decorate the Xmas tree. This delicious & feminine trend puts Christmas in real moments of conviviality around the pleasures of the table. The table will be also decorated with very tasty cakes to complete the festive atmosphere. To refine the look, focus on sweet and gentle tones like pink, purple, and white.
