Christmas Decoration Trends for 2018
We are all about interior design and trends here at Komandor and this, we feel, should be extended to how we decorate our homes, home offices and business. A well-decorated and festive social and workspace makes for a magical one but if you hate the idea of gaudy coloured baubles and threadbare tinsel, this guide is exactly what you need.
What Christmas decoration trends are coming our way this season?
Silver, rose gold and white
The rainbow tree trend is hotting up with some great photos filtering through on social media but, unless you have all the colours of the rainbow when it comes to your tree baubles and a fairly large tree, you may decide that this isn’t quite the look for you.
A chilled out festive season is something that we all need, especially during these tumultuous times and so sticking with a neutral, classic colour scheme has our vote. Opt for pretty rose gold, still the must-have metallic finish, along with silver and white baubles for a beautifully and tastefully decorated Christmas tree.
Less waste and more recycle – and the natural look
We would never deny anyone the delight of opening a wrapped present but it is true to say that many of us are increasingly concerned about waste. This means consumers are looking to recyclable wrapping paper and other essential sundries this year.
As well as opting for recycled wrapping paper, you can also be super creative with your packaging and decorations, opting for the natural look.
Essentially this means bringing in nature to the home but also opting to upcycle items, so ditch the plastic coated wrapping paper for plain brown paper, reuse ribbon for festive seasons past and embrace nature. A living Christmas tree that you can plant in the garden once Christmas has passed is a great idea.
Make your own baubles
If you are searching for a fresh set of Christmas tree baubles this year, you will more than likely come across clear baubles that can be opened for items to be added and then resealed again.
Giving your tree a personal touch adds character and the possibilities with these snap-shut clear baubles are endless.
Add family photographs, add different coloured glitter (choose the environmentally friendly stuff), ribbons shards, coloured tissue paper… the list could go on and on!
Wreaths are a great decoration for your front door and this year, the trend is swinging back to using fir cones and evergreen shrubs to create a pretty wreath.
Add colour and scent with bundled sticks of dried cinnamon (not the stuff you buy from the supermarket – this will just crumble!) which you’ll find in most craft stores. Slice two oranges and place them in an oven on low heat or pop them in a tray in the oven when you have finished cooking tea one evening. They will dry out but retain their colour and scent, Using florist wire, artistically arrange in your Christmas wreath.
When done, unpick your wreath and place everything on the compost!
