Making your home as beautiful as possible could be just the distraction you need in these uncertain times. A bit of style and class is sure to bring some much-needed Christmas cheer. Read on to check out some of the latest style trends for Christmas 2020.
Decorating Ideas for Christmas 2020
Christmas is a great time to get creative and express yourself. Your home is a blank canvas for you to decorate however you like. That might be bold colours or more neutral shades, or maybe with a focus on bringing nature into the house.
John Lewis is offering a range of decorating themes, ranging from Renaissance through to Pop Art. By choosing a theme and ensuring that all your decorations, lights and ornaments are coordinated, you can ensure your living space looks stylish and festive, with a consistent idea running throughout.
Naval colours are on trend for 2020, with deep blue shades contrasting with white or cream. Greys of all hues are also likely to be a major fashion in 2021, so you could get ahead of this trend with your Christmas decor and select grey soft furnishings and decorations to match.
Decorating your home with the gifts of nature, such as foliage and pinecones, is a trend that never goes out of fashion. With more people moving away from plastic and thinking about their environment in their purchasing decisions, you may want to choose a more natural look. There are lots of great ways you can decorate using greenery this Christmas, collected on winter walks in the woods or even from your own garden.
Christmas Tree Trends
The tree is the focal point of any Christmas theme, but the choice of tree is a critical style decision in itself. Will you go for a real tree or a fake one? What kind of tree will suit your plans this year?
Lots of people are uncertain as to where they might be spending Christmas in 2020, due to travel restrictions and changes in the rules about families spending time together indoors. As a result, the pop-up Christmas tree looks set to be a big hit this year. Light and easy to transport and assemble, these innovative trees are perfect if your plans are likely to change at the last minute.
Snow lovers might be mourning the chance to hit the slopes this year and see the snow-capped forests and mountains of their favourite winter resorts. Flocked trees could help to create a winter wonderland scene in your own living room if you’re missing the snow. After all, there’s no guarantee of a white Christmas in the UK!
If you have pets or small children, you might want to consider these ingenious half Christmas trees. You can still have a beautifully decorated, sparkling tree, but those tempting baubles will be out of reach of little hands and paws!
Don’t Forget the Soundtrack!
Whatever your taste in music, whether it’s classical or rock ‘n’ roll, there’s nothing better than music to help you get into the festive mood when you’re decorating or baking Christmas treats.
Acapella vocal harmony group Pentatonix’s latest Christmas album gives new flavours to old Christmas classics. And you can’t go wrong with a spot of classic Michael Buble while you’re decorating the tree.
