Christmas 2019: 5 style trends
December has arrived and with it the most magical period of the year: Christmas.
It is a time of celebration, of joy and union that allows us to return, even a little, children.Many of you will be waiting for the weekend to prepare the Christmas tree and home decorations, as usual. But for several weeks now, shops, in the city streets, have shown us beautiful Christmas decorations and many ideas for decorating our homes .
Let’s see then together what are the styles and trends that are protagonists of this Christmas 2019.
One of the favorite styles of this year is the Country one. Simple atmospheres, for those who will spend the holidays in a house in the countryside, surrounded by warmth and authenticity. This style fits very well into homes where there are natural materials like stone and wood.
Rustic and warm atmospheres, to make us live our childhood memories. Then, if this is your favorite style, get yourself red and green decorations and natural elements like pine cones and berries. Checkered tartan fabrics are perfect for this style, to be inserted even inside the room with pillows and ribbons.
For the rest of the house we advise you to insert lots of wood, white and red candles and warm lights, for a unique atmosphere that warms the heart.
Another trend this year, opposed to the previous one, is to set the house in an icy environment, as if we were inside an igloo. The perfect colors for this style are white, silver and blue (not too dark but more turquoise). Glass and crystals are perfect to deface the tree as well as snowflakes and white lights.
If you want to feel even more immersed in a snowy atmosphere, place decorative polar bears and penguins, both at the entrance and under the Christmas tree, to satisfy even children.
GREEN NATURAL CHRISTMAS
This year the green color is confirmed among the trends. Trees with green elements to combine with natural wood decorations, branches, pine cones and leaves. A bright green matches very well with coppery, warm colors, such as brown and bronze.
The aim of this style is to create a woodland environment with the use of colors and natural elements. You can, then, decorate your home with little squares and little owls combined with lots of greenery, wood and delicate lights.
New entry of this Christmas is the luxury style, elegant and refined. Here, the choice of colors is wider. Bordeux, purple, pink, black are the most used for this Christmas style. Absolutely not to be missed are gold and silver, combined with glitter and velvet decorations.
The atmosphere becomes more sensual and refined. Class and elegance are the keywords for those who want to give their home a touch of glamour and chic.
Tradition, the one that can never be replaced. The one that takes us back in time and makes us children again. Yes, exactly, this is the style preferred by the little ones, because it is the freest, the one that allows us to give vent to our imagination. The only rule to follow is to abound with red, the Christmas color par excellence. The candy canes are a classic of the tradition, to hang on the tree and also on the fireplace or on the stairs.
Christmas balls in the shape of candies make it more fun, as do the reindeer, the little gingerbread man and Santa Claus. This year the gnomes are also trendy, of different sizes and colors.
These are definitely 5 trendy styles, from which to take inspiration. But the decoration of the building is above all a very personal moment, to be lived together with the family or with our loved ones, accompanied by Christmas songs, hot chocolate and maybe a nice Christmas film like ” Home Alone”.
The fundamental ingredient for a perfect Christmas decoration is love, and if accompanied by fun and joy, everything will be even more magical!
