Every year there are new trends for Christmas decorations. One reason of course is to get shoppers to spend money and stimulate the economy but it is also fun to change it up.
Creating the right atmosphere and ambiance in your home in the days or weeks leading up to Christmas is a great morale booster and certainly puts you in the mood for the festive season.
While some people are content to bring out the same stored Christmas decorations year after year, try and add some different touches to your decorations this year.
Get rid of the cheap tinsel and baubles and create a wonderland.
If you are ready for a fresh change, why not donate all your old ornaments to charity and start anew.
According to Interiorzine, "The mantra 'less is more' takes a new life here - simple and elegant, reductionist and light.
"Compensating, in a way, the minimalist silhouettes of the decoration the colors are bold and capturing - the use of deep burgundy, as well as dark blue, grey, brown and the classic forest green seems to be popular."
Metallic sheen is being replaced by an aged glow so can still be used but muted and toned down.
Even if you add a few new baubles for festive cheer, it will make a huge difference.
Vintage baubles are making their appearance strongly this season, with quite detailed ornaments and ones that have been lovingly handcrafted.
"It is no wonder that many designers and brands bet on the classic beauty of glass ornaments for the Christmas 2019 decoration stylists," Interiorzine stated for their Christmas trend predictions.
After all, many people will be looking at your decorations if you are hosting the Christmas lunch or dinner so it is well worth the effort.
Creating a new look with the latest trends can put a smile on many faces and make your home even cosier and festive than ever.
The children and grandchildren will love the new look too - bring back the wonder of Christmas!
If you are crafty, spend some time making your own decorations. The result will be one of a kind and more satisfying. Involve the children and let them be proud of their efforts at making Christmas decorations.
You can use a lot of natural textures and items - there is no need to spend big.
