So, although many of you will cringe when reading this, the facts are real......we have 67 days until Christmas!! Yes ladies and gents, we said it....Christmas is almost upon us!! And as many people I'm sure will delve to the backs of their cupboards, garages or storerooms to resurrect the dodgy old Christmas tree, complete with multi-coloured fairy lights and a few strands of withered tinsel, a lot of us revel in the Christmas spirit and enjoy finding new ways to keep our houses and offices adorned with all things Christmas. So...what is trending, what is Christmas 2016 looking like decor wise.
Well we have a few answers for you in the means of two trends for 2016.....
Vintage influenced kitsch brings in elements for those looking for a more contemporary feel. Bringing the vintage items to life and incorporating the feel of old Christmas with burgundies, deep reds and golds, along with the the "more is more" maximalistic approach is becoming a huge trend. Adorning the trees with old school decoupaged baubles, gold wrapped presents under the tree (a real tree we might add!), and over the top garlands for mantles and doors are all hits for 2016.
But if you are more a "new age" decorator....a bright and colourful hand crafted Christmas would be the way to go. Modern items revamped and adorned in bright colours, re-used in fun and creative ways is the trend for you.
Revamped bottles for mantle and table decor, homemade baubles with whatever trinkets your cupboards and drawers offer up, decorated pine-cones that mimic the excited artworks of a school child. This trends is brilliant as it lets you personalise your decor and have fun...not to mention upcycling exsiting elements and items from your house!
