2017 Christmas Trends

October 31, 2017

The snowflakes are falling, the hot chocolate is steaming and Holiday Season Decorating is fresh on the mind. How will we incorporate seasonal cheer and the latest trends into our homes this year? Start by taking a look at your homes existing style and aim to complement by selecting décor items that fit into the existing colour palette and style. This will ensure a cohesive holiday look that will embellish your home versus compete to be the star of the show.This year the trends offer several options that will seamlessly transition your home into the festive season. 

Touch of Nature

Incorporate fresh greenery and floral that are in season to decorate mantels and table tops. Fill vases and bowls with seasonal fruit and pinecones to add a fresh scent to your home. Select ornaments that are neutral browns, greys, and pale blues alongside crisp white lights for a classic and timeless look.

Traditionalist

This trend is full of handcrafted items that offer up some heavy doses of nostalgia. These items tend to combine natural raw materials such as wool, felt, burlap and wood. Hang some hand knitted stockings by the fireplace, adorn your tree with felted ornaments and cozy up with throws and toss cushions that are of various textures for a cozy holiday.

White Christmas

The airy and frosty outdoors are brought inside with snowy white baubles and crystal clear snowflakes that can be hung from the tree or placed in vases and bowls on table tops. Muted cool blues and transparent glass add a soft relaxing element that lends itself well to the delicate theme.
