The holidays are just around the corner, which means it's time to start making plans to transform your home into a festive oasis to welcome family and friends. Before you start shopping for a tree and unpacking last year’s wreath consider these holiday entertaining and decor trend predictions from the experts.
While neutral tones in a home have reigned supreme in recent years, the experts are expecting a return to bright holiday décor. Joyful, vibrant colours will emerge this festive season.
For traditionalists, you'll be happy to know that classic hues, like red, green, ochre, and rust tones will remain. Reds and greens are an old time favourite for many and can create a rich and welcoming feeling to any home.
As reflected in recent years, people love getting outdoors to break up time spent doing remote work and other activities in the home. Natural foliage and greenery can create an enchanted forest-inspired décor.
Before welcoming guests in your home for a holiday celebration, make sure you have a party trick on deck. After several years of not being able to share the holiday season with loved ones, make sure you have plenty of Christmas bon-bons on hand filled with fun prizes for everyone to enjoy this festive season.
Touches of Texture
As the festive season approaches, think about décor pieces with texture to add into the home, like velvet, mohair, and bold patterns. Other textured pieces like chunky knits speak to a trending alpine aesthetic for the holiday season.
Serving Up Drinks
In addition to adding plenty of bon-bons, have a selection of holiday cocktails and mocktails on hand for guests young and old. Investing in a beautiful punch bowl and elegant glassware will add that something extra to your holiday entertaining.
Table centre pieces will take pride of place this holiday season. Fun prints and patterns, as well as bows and embroidery are popping up everywhere this year.
But don’t worry, classic elements are still very popular, along with retro décor, and vintage inspired pieces.
