Christmas Decorating Trend 1 /  Winter wishes


The colours of a beautiful winter sky, early in the morning.

Verdant foliage and frozen shades, nestle together to create an elegant, feminine theme.

It works both for a romantic or contemporary interior. Be bold and add a dark bottle green, this will give the theme a bit more spark.

Think: soft plaids, honey comb ornaments and felt animals.

Christmas Decorating Trend 2 / Starry Night


The splendor of a cold Christmas night under the stars.

By mixing cool and warm tones, this theme creates a modern, calm and minimalistic atmosphere into your home.

Think: Metal, velvet, marble, zodiac signs and abstract faces.

Christmas Decorating Trend 3 / Christmas spice



A family walk in the forest on Christmas day.

Warming shades of reds and orange, with rich, verdant greens are giving us a northern feeling.

Think: wood, ceramics, wool, chunky knits and (faux) fur.

christmas decorating trend 2 | RUST


The metallic trend lately became warmer and less shiny. The rust color recalls that one of the oxidized iron and, with its particular hue between red, orange and brown, it is another modern and unconventional color to decorate home this Christmas

christmas decorating trend 3 | WABI SABI


I think that the Wabi Sabi Japanese word -the vision a beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” -is perfect to reasume in two words the current aesthetic and the mood we are going to see next year as well. The feeling is given by raw surfaces, by a design focused more on the material aspect: you can easily put a little bit of this mood into your Christmas decor by choosing objects with a new texture, by adding imperfect and wrinkled fabrics, by choosing handmade ceramics for your table. Colors are muted and raw as well, grey above all.

christmas decorating trend 4 | UNCONVENTIONAL STARS


Ok if you are looking for some conventional, you can always decorate with stars. To make it more interesting feel free to match different materials, textures, styles, playing with the star shape!

christmas decorating trend 5 | MOODY


Even if for me Christmas is still in white, moody and dark colors are now the trendiest way to decorate home and to decorate for Christmas as well. I think also that moody athmospheres are much more realistic for the winter season and it’s long nights, right?







christmas decorating trend 6 | RUSTIC


Raw woods and natural green, better if in dark hues: the latest Christmas decorations are simple but not minimalist, green but not too much green. Don’t forget to add some natural green, from spure and fir tree,  on your Christmas home and table!
