Nature Brings Comfort this Christmas Season
Posted on 01 November 2018
The last few seasons, the trends for the holidays have shifted from strong, abrasive bright colors and decor to a more cozy, comforting and classic style. With a focus on the Scandinavian hygge—which embodies cozy and simple—decor trends have encapsulated this feeling with rustic charm and timeless chic.
Rustic charm and handmade touches personalize your space with fresh touches and smells that brings people together. If creating a wreath doesn’t suite your style, natural greens such as eucalyptus and pine still create the rustic, natural look without the project. Add some string and hang it on the wall for a pretty garland that give dimension and a unique quality to your decor.
CENTERPIECES AND DETAILS
Wanting to add some simple, classic elements to your dining table? Clear vases help showcase your decor with elegance. Add height to your centerpieces with different sized vases, which draws the eye over the table you want your guests to see. Scented pinecones and candles create an inviting and warm centerpiece for you to gather around. A plus? Easy clean up and versatile fillings for the vases.
White and green is a classic color combination for Christmas--but the colors can extend far beyond just Christmas and the holiday season. Faux succulents, such as the one from Marmalade Decor (pictured first)--with its clean white vase and beautiful plants--you can add simple character and dimension without worrying about whether the plant will stay alive during the seasons. We can leave staying alive to the Bee-Gee’s. Mix and match with different succulents to spice up your home and keep things interesting.
KEEP THE COMFORT GOING
Keep the simplicity and elegance going with your gifts. Unusual wrapping paper like brown paper is reminiscent of The Sound of Music and is easily personalized. Touches like red string and sprigs of pine with cute notes brings warmth, which the holidays are all about.
Last, but definitely not least, bring in a Christmas tree that creates memories for your family. You can be traditional with simple colors or unconventional, adding jewel-toned ornaments for eye-catching details. Adding twinkle lights that brighten your mantles and natural wood bring coziness and a whimsical nature to your decor that you and the children can enjoy. Use your creative liberties this holiday season and create a space that gathers the whole family!
