It seems as though Christmas decor gets more and more beautiful with each passing year, and this year certainly didn’t disappoint! If you still have a few more pieces to pick up or want to catch the deals and stock up for next year, take a peek at these gorgeous holiday decorating styles.
Unique colours on traditional designs
Trees, wreaths and stockings will always be beloved symbols of Christmas, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be played with and dressed up in new, cool ways. Old symbols were made new this year by adding fun colours, as with this antique turquoise glass tree from Anthropologie (anthropologie.com, $38).
There was once a time when the only way to dress up the front of your home was with a few strands of lights and maybe an inflatable Santa or two. But this year brought forth all kinds of attractive new ways to make your outdoor decor every bit as nice as the inside decor. These gorgeous oversized ornaments, for instance, are a classy way to make your front porch sparkle (potterybarn.com, $38).
Although the time frame on Santas and reindeer may be limited, decor pieces featuring snowflakes can be used all winter long, so make use of them whenever possible. And luckily snowflake decor pieces could be found all over this year. These snowflake coasters are a quick and easy way to add a wintery flair to your living room, while this snowflake centrepiece may be just the addition your dining room needs (sears.ca, $6 and $10).
A sprinkling of frost
A little bit of fake frost is a lovely feature to bring the essence of winter into your home in a classic and stylish way. This elegant sparkling pre-lit pine wreath, for example, will add a wintery feel to your entryway (homedepot.com, $40).
Although the trend in most homes has been to move away from homey decorations and toward more modern decor, there’s always a little room for a couple of stylish rustic pieces at this time of year. These Mason jar snow globes, for instance, add a touch of rustic charm without crossing the line into gaudy (anthropologie.com, $40).
Metallic touches are the easiest way to take Christmas classics and make them more modern. Decor pieces in shimmering gold and shining silver add gorgeous pops to your holiday decor. These twig reindeer are a stunning way to dress up your home with a modern twist (potterybarn.com, $82).
