The Christmas holidays are just a couple of months away and I wanted to share a few of my favorite holiday decorating trends for 2019. All of these looks will bring joy and cheer to your home and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
The three trends I have chosen to highlight are easy to blend with any decor. The key is to sprinkle the colors throughout your home so that there is a touch of the holidays in every room. I also like to coordinate my indoor decor with what I place outside so that there is a continuous theme.
Black and White
The simplicity of black and white decorations allows your tree, wreaths, and centerpieces will take center-stage. Black and white grounds all other elements while simultaneously remaining fresh and clean. It also transitions well to New Year parties where it can be accented with sparkling metals such as silver and gold.
A black and white color scheme can be used with any style to create a chic, simple atmosphere. The black-white combo highlights the very simple decorations and allows us to appreciate the simplest of elements.
If an all black-and-white color scheme is just too simple for your taste, you can add a primary color such as red. Red adds a punch of fun and whimsy to an otherwise neutral palette.
Gold and Red
Although red and gold is a common color scheme for the holidays, it’s a tried-and-true combination that never goes out of style. Because these two colors are seen as “traditional,” they are a go-to for many decorators.
Red and gold also pair well with any style, from classic to contemporary.
If you prefer a classic green pine tree, red and gold allow the tree’s natural color to shine through. Red and Gold are equally beautiful on white or flocked trees.
Pastels and White
While most people don’t associate pastels with Christmas, it is an unexpected departure from the typical holiday color scheme. Pastel colors mix easily with white, ivory and cream, and also work with metals like gold and silver.
Pastel colors evoke a feeling of nostalgia and create a refreshing alternative to the usual bright colors. Though pastels are soft, they are just as festive as traditional Christmas color schemes.
From simple, natural elements to tons of glitter and glitz, the important thing is to make your holiday decorations your own.
I hope you’ve found some inspiration in this blog post! Try incorporating your existing decorations with some new pieces to create a cheerful, original look of your own this Christmas.
