Each year the team at My Christmas identify the major themes or trends for the coming Christmas season. In 2018 there is a return to fun whimsical styling, as well as the continued interest in non-traditional Christmas colours including pinks and blues.
Just as it does in homewares, Christmas trends can sometimes come out of left field, whilst others are more gentle changes to previous favourites. Of course, Christmas decorating is always going to have a strong emphasis on gold, red and green, but now we see more creative use of the various tones of these key colours.
Soft pinks and rose golds have been big in homewares for a little while, and this trend is very strong for Christmas 2018. Once again, soft champagne tones are a perfect complement to this colour palette.
Red and green are Christmas tradition and they are here to stay. This year sees a little tartan in the mix but a feel of true tradition with Santa’s and reindeer of yester-year.
Our home styling has become a lot more streamlined over recent years, often with whites as the focal colour. With this white back drop this new Fantasy theme oozes sophistication but also the colours bring a touch of whimsy. Personally we normally like soft golds rather than bright gold, but it is the addition of the gold that brings everything together and manages to create such a stylish display.
We saw eucalyptus creep into Christmas decorating last year and this year they are everywhere. The tone is so elegant and works perfectly with pale blues, greens, pewter or champagne gold. Alternatively mix these soft blue/greens with Arctic woodlands theme.
We’ve seen the light wood themes for a couple of years now but this year there is even more emphasis on birch and soft whites to compliment the wooden tones. This theme also incorporates lots of pieces for both hanging on the tree and the table top that have LED lights to add additional sparkle.
