The holidays are fast approaching, and if you’re a person who loves decking the halls every December (and who doesn’t?) you’re probably eager to break out the ornaments and nutcrackers. But this year, why not switch it up and adopt some new decorating trends of 2020? These tips will help you impress your in-laws, relatives and friends and make the holiday season extra jolly.
Try Out Navy Blue
Classic Blue, Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year is Classic Blue, has been rippling through the decoration and design world all year. Thinking that navy blue doesn’t work with the traditional red and green holiday palette? Think again! This bold yet calming color pairs wonderfully with white twinkling lights as well as colors like silver, gold, champagne and even red.
Integrate “Farmhouse” Decor
Envision charming red and white plaid bows dotting your Christmas tree, red holly berries on your bannister, and metal jingle bells on your dining room table. These farmhouse accents will invoke a sense of nostalgia from childhood holidays that will be touching to your whole family.
Make Your Own Gingerbread House
Remember those fun days with your family gathered around your kitchen island trying to make the gingerbread walls stick on the white frosting and decorating your little doors with gumdrops? Why not make the gingerbread come to life this year? Think bright pastel pinks and blues and, if you really want to get creative, lollipop and peppermint shapes.
Get Creative With Your Wreaths
Though hanging a wreath on your door is the classic way to welcome the holiday season, switch it up this year! Instead of the typical ivy or pine needle materials, try using longer, willow-y leaves to create a more nature-esque look. You can also experiment with asymmetrical wreaths, by having leaves and berries on just one half of the ring for a modern look.
