If it is the first falling leaf that marks the beginning of the autumn season, the arrival of winter and the holiday season does not limit itself to a single entity. The temperature lowers, colourful decorations adorn houses and shops, you see a lot of plum cakes, Yule logs and goodies at every café, beautiful Christmas trees at every corner, and a general euphoria of the holiday season in the air.
This is also a time when everyone becomes creative and decorates their living spaces with decors that remind them of the Christmas spirit. Bold Outline has curated some new trends in Christmas decoration.
Greens, reds, whites and golden are probably the colours we traditionally associate with Christmas. This year why not go for shades of pastels? They are soft, subtle and elegant and can be easily incorporated everywhere. You can opt for pastel decorations, ornaments, candles, and wreaths.
If you are looking for a theme that exudes minimalism and is modern, go for metallic ornaments and decorations. Scandinavian style geometric ornaments made from copper wires and sheets suits every Christmas tree.
Asymmetric Christmas Wreaths
Asymmetric designs enhanced with a bit of rustic and natural textures using evergreen leaves, pine cones, dried flowers, and berries; they give a message that designs need not focus on perfectionism to be aesthetically pleasing.
Handmade Marbled Baubles
Baubles become the life of the Christmas tree; this year, go for the unique handmade marbled baubles instead of the shiny and matte ones. The marbled baubles are made by coating conventional baubles with a primer. Special paints are poured on to a vessel of water; the paint floats above the water. The water is gently swirled and the bauble is dipped; the paint gets transferred on the bauble’s surface to form marbled patterns. The baubles are coated with a layer of varnish for a finishing touch.
