Decorating Trends: Preparing Your Home for Christmas

Christmas is shortly arriving and you may want to decorate your home with some ornaments that provide a more welcoming atmosphere. However, to avoid the traditional Christmas decor that may look a little tacky, pay attention to this article as we will talk about the new decoration trends for 2017.

Christmas tree

Obviously, the Christmas tree can not be missing in your home. However, it is not necessary to choose a very large one or to overload it with too many decorations. Just a few lights in red, white and green colours and some well-distributed balls, as well as the classic star on top. Blue, silver and gold are also safe bets.

On the other hand, following the theme of the ornaments, if you want to give a fun, original and novel theme to your tree, add some ribbons, buttons and crystals that slightly reflect the light. As for your base, you can choose one of these two options. First, you have the possibility to cover it with a cloth and, second, to place some empty boxes covered with decorative paper that look as if they are the gifts.

We do not know if you have a fireplace in your home, but if so, you should pay close attention to it. Obviously, Christmas stockings should not be missing. Also, do not forget to leave the gifts there on Christmas Eve, especially if you have small children. Do not forget to hang a mistletoe. Traditionally, the stockings are put on the door, but during the last few years, people have been hanging them on their chimneys.

The living room table

Whether you are celebrating Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve at home or not, it is important to take care of every detail, in particularly, the living room table. In this sense, place some textile elements with Christmas motifs on the table and, in addition, add some candles or vase. Of course, you must take into account that none of these elements should interfere with the guests' enjoyment of the evening. Putting a cover or blanket on the chairs can help give warmth to the room.

Decorating your house with good taste during the upcoming Christmas is already possible. If you want to take it one step further and create the nativity scene, we recommend that you keep it as simple as possible. And it is that the minimalist and modern tendencies in the world of the interior decoration that prevail strongly in the present times. Just follow these tips so you can boast a home that is trendy and festive.
