Andy Williams once said, "It's the most delightful time of the year," and he was right. We are more thrilled than usual for Christmas this year, with only one month to go.
While the pandemic prevented us from throwing parties and toasting marshmallows last year, we are all hopeful that Christmas 2021 will be a great occasion filled with modest comforts and heartwarming family traditions.
In terms of Christmas trends, there are two rather encompassing themes. The first is a trend toward being blatantly and unabashedly cheerful. There's certainly a craving for all the festivities we couldn't have last year, from layering luxurious metallic to nostalgic color combinations and maximalist decorations.
Nature reigns supreme as a great source of festive design inspiration for those who like things a little more understated. As we strive to bring our homes closer to nature, earthy terracotta tones and sustainable materials will be high on people's wish lists this year.
Prepare to be inspired if you're already feeling Christmas and thinking about turning your home into a seasonal grotto. We have given you some of the best Christmas décor trends forecasts for the year 2021.
This year's Christmas will have dark tones with gold accents. The color scheme is a sophisticated choice for Christmas table arrangements. Think light gold reindeers with dark blue and purple candle holders. Think of all the dark decorations in your mind and implement them into the Christmas décor this year.
It's not only nostalgic to use vintage ornaments, ancient tableware, and passed-down tablecloths, but it's also environmentally responsible. We recommend fixing existing decorations, crafting some from recycled materials, or hunting for treasures at antique exhibits or online auctions instead of buying new ones.
Sustainability will be a significant trend around the Christmas dinner table. Everything from re-usable crackers to recycled glasses will be in high demand. Personalization will also be popular; guests will appreciate handwritten location names. Bold colors will be popular in terms of shades. A wonderful wonderland will be created with bright highlights and frosted silver accessories.
Nature is the overarching motif for Christmas this year. When it comes to decorating your home for the holidays, rich green will be a dramatic color. When coupled together, a real Christmas tree surrounded by evergreen blooms, wood decorations, and sparkling gold garlands would appear magnificent. Choose a regal runner and napkins to go with metallic accents and classic winter nature motif plates.
Greenery is a great way to start, then add ribbons and decorations for a flash of color. Instead of utilizing traditional Christmas colors, match your garland accessories to wall art and décor throughout the space for a subtle yet festive look.
Charming touches of nostalgia must be set against a backdrop of pastel pinks and blues. Old festive trinkets, retro tree lights, and vintage-style designs reflect the nostalgia of the season, while elegant ribbons and bows add a playful aspect. Increase the magical touches for the pastel look and add a faux frosted tree that complements the color scheme well, while twinkling wall ornaments and candlelight provide a warm glow.
When it all becomes too much, look to Scandinavian design for inspiration. This trend emphasizes quality over quantity by paring down the look to its most appealing elements.
Creating a friendly space is key to a Nordic Christmas Décor. A lovely tree and green foliage, along with candlelight and fairy lights, can be all you need for a primary yet atmospheric effect. Choose ornaments in a muted color palette or all made of the same material if you want to add extra ornamentation.
