Looking for a little holiday inspiration? Check out these seasonal trends to make your home merry and bright.
With the holidays upon us and Christmas right around the corner, many of us are lovingly taking the time and care it takes to make our homes festive and welcoming.
Whether you’re pulling out your traditional décor stored away in the deep recesses of your attic or you’re busy shopping at your neighborhood pop-up holiday market, we know you want to find the ideal style to match your style. You want your home to reflect YOU!
It may seem a bit overwhelming, especially if you feel 2021 is the perfect year to try something new or update an old look. Let us help by offering four holiday decorating trends that welcome the holidays with plenty of cheer.
It doesn’t have to be “in with the new and out with the old.” If you’re feeling especially nostalgic this year and want to honor times gone by, why not add some nostalgic décor to your home? For those of us who missed gathering last year, this can be a wonderful way to cherish the memories we have while creating new ones.
Find those vintage ornaments that have been in your family for ages and highlight them, making them the center of your home décor. Old crockery can be livened up with live greenery and even faded holiday tablecloths can make a table look warm and inviting. If it provides a memory, it’ll bring a loving nod to days gone by when you display it for all to enjoy.
Gold and Blue – a rich combination
Take some dark shades of blue (think midnight blue or indigo or peacock), pair it with sparkly gold and you’ll create a richness of color that is both comforting and inviting with a hint of elegance. Bring in blues that lean toward the purple spectrum and it’ll create a royal look that will make your guests feel treated to a special visit of luxury and comfort.
Make a statement with sustainable décor
As we leave an era (okay, it was just a year, but it felt like an era) when we found out many of our resources are limited and recognized the importance of sustaining them to not only provide for ourselves but our children, you might find you want your home décor to reflect that heart this year.
This year, look around you to see what can be reused and given some holiday love with just a few tweaks or enhancements. If you’re not particularly crafty, don’t worry. Seek our local artisans who have refurbished old glassware, fabrics, and wooden treasure to bring new life to your home without creating more “stuff” for the Earth. Sustainability is not about perfection, but about finding the beauty within the imperfections.
Pearly capiz shells add a touch of elegance
If this year demands to showcase the elegance it deserves due to having to hide away last year, then why not embrace the elegance of capiz shells into your décor? The alluring shells of windowpane oysters, known as capiz shells, will transform your holiday home décor with their dazzling, pearl-like shimmer. They reflect the light like sparkling snowflakes and instantly create a winter wonderland.
However you decide to decorate your home for the holidays, spending the time with those you love will always be the best décor reflected in your home.
