When reflecting on things that define the holiday season, we are reminded of twinkling lights throughout the trees, the warmth of a fireplace, snow lightly falling and the chance to make memories that will last a lifetime. This sparks he annual opportunity to transform a home into a personalized winter wonderland. The underlying theme for the 2016 holiday season is refined elegance. Each trend, though simple, creates a show stopping look.
All That Glitters is Gold
Of course the tree is the main event, but decorating the common areas of your home with little holiday knick-knacks is just as important. Gold is as timeless as it gets, and when you incorporate it into your holiday design scheme, it has the ability to transform the overall feel of any room into one of glitz and merriment.
The classic holiday colors seem to be red and green, with the secondary scheme being somewhere around silver and gold or all white. Why not mix it up and make your home really stand out by throwing in some bold pops of color? We love how this trend works and we think you’ll love it too.
The classic, grand fir tree makes a room feel instantly spirited, but it’s not always a feasible option for those with smaller dwellings. We’ve rounded up a few different takes on the classic tree so you can find one that fits into your modern lifestyle.
The weather tends to get rather nasty in the winter, which is why we want nothing to do with it. We would rather stay inside and cuddle by the fire. But why not bring the outside in? Here are a few pieces we found that remind us nature isn’t always so cold and billowy, but even when it is, it can still be beautiful.
If you ask any architect or interior designer what the most important part of a house is, chances are many of them will say lighting. A great light fixture can turn a dull dining room into a lively dining room, which is why we’ve included lighting as a holiday trend for 2016.
Spending money during the holidays can quickly add up, which is why we’ve included a few options you can buy as well as make in the comfort of your own home. These items are both fun to make and will be unique to your household. They’re not your run of the mill holiday décor, which is why we love them so much.
White Hot Winter
If none of these trends have struck your fancy, we’re willing to bet this one will. White after Labor Day is an old adage that has certainly no place in our rule books, which is why we love to decorate with white during the holidays. If it doesn’t snow where you are, there’s no better way to have a white Christmas!
