"A delightful moment", which means „zachwycający moment”, is the leading motto of Christmas this year. The motto has been chosen by the designers and it is supposed to be a counterpoise to "online" everyday life, which passes by faster and faster. Both our everyday life and working life are filled with on-going stress. This Christmas should be the time of relaxation and joyful moments with our family and friends. It should also be the time of concentration and happiness coming from decorating the Christmas tree together with our relatives, preparing Christmas food and singing Christmas carols with our family and friends.
The retro style is one of the styles, which are suggested by the designers this Christmas. This style brings back memories from our childhood. Apart from traditional Christmas baubles, we can hang colorful and glittery angels, birds, colourful figurines and Christmas poinsettia on our Christmas tree, too. Decorations made from fabrics and filoselle associated with those decorations used to embroidered by our grandmothers, are also very popular. What is more, lollypops in shapes of red and white candy canes or colorful Christmas stocking hung over the fireplace will be useful in our journey to the childhood, too. Moreover, we should not be afraid of fairy tale decorations. It is nice to see beautiful stylized or painted by hand Christmas baubles on our Christmas tree.
It is also wonderful if we prefer the rustic style during Christmas. We should remember that this style is based on natural materials such as wood, flax and clay, which cannot be missed among our Christmas decorations in the interiors of our houses or flats. All kind of things, which can survive for many years and are created with passion or made with our own hands, can be used as well. The rustic style is characterized by simplicity. Let's try to base our Christmas decorations on natural and usually free of charge things. We can use some spruce sprigs and pine-cones to make beautiful table decorations, which will smell like the forest. Wreaths of conifer or holly sprigs will also decorate the interiors of our houses or flats beautifully. What is more, candles, lanterns and Christmas tree lights, which can be used not only during Christmas, will definitely emphasize the cozy, joyful and magic Christmas spirit.
Nature is another popular element this winter, which can be used to create the Christmas spirit in our houses or flats. Without doubt, we can choose white, grey and mint colour scheme, glass accessories and silver items. This trend inspired by nature is based on using baubles in the shape of birds, flowers and snowy stars and also silver glittery texture. Glass is a crucial element of this style. Shapes and patterns of glass often refer to winter, which is why stars, snowflakes, icicles or even reindeers and owls can appear in the interiors of our houses or flats. Accessories should be displayed or hung not only in the living room, but also in the kitchen, dining room or bedroom. This will enable us to enjoy the Christmas spirit in every room! Textiles are always the fulfillment of Christmas decorations. By all means, we should choose natural textiles such as soft cushions, blankets and linen tablecloths. What is more, all these things should be made of high-quality textiles.
Finally, we have the last Christmas proposition, which will be definitely appreciated by minimalists sensitive to sophisticated details and the lovers of the classics. A lot of people associate the modernist style with cold and severe interiors of houses or flats with no ornaments. However, it is not the truth. On no account is modernism deprived of ornaments. They are usually very simple, geometric, rather subtle but eye-catching. The modernist style is timeless and posh. Preparing our Christmas decorations we should choose simple accessories from metal, wood or glass in geometric shapes based on straight lines. Triangles, squares, polygons and 3D shapes can be put on the Christmas tree, Christmas wreath or table. Gold, silver or a warm shade of copper, which is a new trend this Christmas, can work perfectly as Christmas decorations, too.
