How to decorate and furnish the house over Christmas
Furnishing and decorating your home for Christmas is a relaxing time to share with your partner, children, friends and relatives. However, there are some trends that you can get inspired from, if you want to create a wholesome and great looking space.
1. The mood for Christmas 2020 is “total look”.
This basically means one thing: you absolutely must choose a color, a mood and an idea for Christmas and apply it to all the decorations present. It is not worth having the tree decorated in white, yellow garlands, red festoons and blue tablecloths. Everything must give the idea of a well-designed set to amaze.
We’ll tell you more: Christmas 2020 is combined with furniture. Hence the choice of a palette of decorations that goes very well with your palette of furniture and accessories.
Put simply, this year’s decorations can be of any of the above colors, the important thing is that they match with the rest of the colors of the house or at least of the room in which they are present.
2. As during the rest of year, less is more!
From this point of view, Christmas is always an opportunity to amaze with decorations. However, you should be careful: decorating your home for Christmas while maintaining sobriety is the winning advice that you should always keep in mind.
When it comes to decorations, there are always those who show off “heavy artillery” when they have to arrange bows, balls, garlands, colored threads, advent calendars, fake Santas, plates and glasses.
The logical thread of the decorations is lost in the chaos. The environment will be overcrowded with useless trinkets, the most important decorations will lose their fundamental value and everything will be reduced to a mess.
3. Decorate all the rooms of the house
It can be with a small potted tree, with a bright star or a fresh flower garland. Christmas doesn’t necessarily have to be lived only in the living or dining room! Recreating the atmosphere in the various rooms, albeit with only one decorative element, can be a nice and not excessively expensive idea, especially for those who madly love Christmas time.
A tip: try to use decorations that are permanently attached to walls or windows. It is important to avoid holes, nails, stains and glue all over, which will then remain visible for another 10 months. Use decorations placed on the furniture or garlands that can be fixed with the double-sided adhesive on doors and walls.
A recent trend is the use of homemade decorations made of paper or wood. It is a creative strategy for those who have time to dedicate to some decoupage, which will allow you to decorate your home without spending too much money.
4. Raw Christmas
The last of Christmas 2020 trends is more minimalist and imperfect, let’s say Bohemian, and sees the use of fresh or dry leaves, trunks, branches and raw fabrics such as canvas and linen. The colors in this case are duller and more natural, for a minimalistic effect.
Choose one of the two materials according to the style you want to give to your home, there are no limits. Of course, it makes no sense to decorate the table with metals and silks and then use plastic plates to eat! Consistency is a value that has always been appreciated, but unfortunately it is equally inflated.
The idea that saves Christmas
Furnishing your home for Christmas is also a pretext to put in order and eliminate all the accessories that do nothing but mess up the overall look. If you are very confused and can’t find a common thread to transform your home, I recommend that you use a minimalist approach.
From this point of view, Scandinavian design has a lot to teach us. Their houses are reduced to the essentials, as are their decorations. This results in minimal trees, never super decorated, in neutral and never excessive colors (they even use black!), with sober additions.
Especially if you have a small house with few perspective spaces, do not overdo the tree. A tree either large, disproportionate or hyper decorated, will make the room much smaller!
Make sure that the branches and needles of the original color show up. Add a few balls or stars or other decorations and a jute or paper base.
How to decorate your Christmas table
You might want to set the table with a traditional white linen tablecloth, long until it touches the floor, on which to show off the best set of dishes you have. For an elegant Christmas table, we suggest you enrich it with decorations.
If you are a traditionalist and do not want to give up red, this year you could vary the monochrome, focusing on a tartan motif as a valid alternative.
If you have a nice wooden or marble table instead, why cover it? You can leave it naked and set the table with plain or Christmas-themed placemats. In this way you will highlight not only the beauty of the table, but also that of the objects.
For a Christmas decoration in the name of joy, you can also bring to the table red candles, lanterns or glasses with candles and candelabra. Lastly, the centerpiece. Candles won’t ever fail you. White candles on gold or wood-colored tablecloths, or colored candles on white boards are the best color combinations.
Alternatively, you can play with compositions of pine cones, branches, berries, bows and candles, to be placed along the entire center of the table as a divider, or gathered and well arranged in a tray. By doing this you will transform your dining rom into a warm and enveloping environment, whereyou can enjoy lunch or dinner in the company of your oved ones.
How to decorate a garden for Christmas?
The bst wy to decorate your garden for Christmas is with lights. Don’t worry about snowmen, Santa Clauses in the most ridiculous positions, reindeer, garden gnomes or other fictional characters. What makes Christmas beautiful and loved is the atmosphere that can be created and done with lighting.
Avoid flashing or overly colored lights. Choose to highlight a path, an elevation or perhaps the (real) tree you are decorating outside!
