With the wide range of decorations on the high street and even more you can craft for yourself, gone are the days of the standard traditional red and green. There are now countless creative directions you take the needly king of Christmas decorations.
Can’t decide how to decorate yours? Don’t worry, our list of 2016’s most fabulous and popular Christmas tree trends is sure to inspire you.
Scandinavian or Scandi as we’ve come to know it, is one of the biggest interior trends this year and you have to admit… it’s totally made for Christmas. With its rustic, minimalist and cosy vibes it twists the traditional into a very stylish and contemporary look. From a colour palette that’s mainly white and red, it combines fairisle patterns, snowflakes and reindeer to establish a super homely and hygge atmosphere.
Update old decorations with Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Cherry Red and White Gloss to achieve this look.
Adding a touch of glamour doesn’t have to stop with your interior decor; think metallic, glitter and sparkly lights and you can’t go wrong. The soft pink colour palette is perfect for the girly vibe but if that’s not your thing, metallic gold paired with black and white is the perfect alternative for a Snow Queen. Give glamour a go this year and get the WOW factor!
Nothing says Christmas more than a snow covered tree. If you’re not lucky enough to see any snow, this is the tree for you. Suited to grey interior colour schemes, it’s the perfect canvas for metallic coppers, snowy white ornaments and warm glowing lights. What’s more, due to the snow powdered branches you don’t have to go overboard with decorations to fill the tree – go minimalist to accentuate the wintry look.
If you can’t decide on one colour scheme, a more modern colour-pop style tree is the one for you. There are no rules other than lots of colour and it’s the best excuse to showcase some really unusual and fun decorations. Handmade creations are a must here to complement the fun aspects of the style. Try daring colours such as neon in geometric shapes to make your decorations bang-on trend for the season.
For all those daring trendsetters who like to turn things on their head, alternative style Christmas trees are becoming evermore popular. A bold design and interior style statement, they can literally be made from anything and automatically turn into a great talking point.
Whether it’s plastic pipes cut to form a tree shape that house little trinkets, or stacked wooden crates, there are endless possibilities to create something that’s truly yours this season. So swap the traditional for the modern alternative and express yourself in your own unique way.
