The holidays offer us the chance to spend time with family, eat until we snooze and, of course, decorate our home with colour and glitter. From plaid stockings to rainbow Christmas trees, the Christmas home decor ideas for 2018 are here. Scottish furniture store Time and Tide take a closer look.
Rainbow Christmas trees are a multi-sensory addition to your home decor. If you are looking to make a statement with your Christmas tree decor, nothing quite creates a ‘bang’. 2018 Christmas decor trends are rooted in experimental and adventurous colours.Incorporate the ‘rainbow’ trend to your Christmas home decor ideas by creating a gradual spectrum of colours, starting from the bottom towards the top. Metallics have long proved popular for interior design, and it’s no surprise to see them enter the Christmas trends for 2018.
There are a number of ways to create the perfect metallic-inspired Christmas decor; from cool metallic tones – such as steel, silver and nickel – to warmer, more sophisticated tones. Opt for mini, copper Christmas baubles and combine with organic materials, such as wood, for a minimalist, modern effect. Similarly, Christmas tree ribbons and florals in gold, silver and copper provide shimmer. Also, think metallic candle holders and ornaments, gold cutlery and even beaded placemats; the interior design opportunities are almost endless.
