Everyone’s favourite time of year is almost upon us and that means it’s time to dust off the decorations and get creative. If you’ve recently moved in to a LIFEstyle by ENGIE home, you’ll have the perfect canvas for festive features. We’ve taken a look at what is set to be on-trend this Christmas so you can have the best dressed house on the street.
Textured natural touches
Think raw wood, dried foliage and fresh greenery. Bring the outside indoors with green and brown hues, this trend is all part of the modern farmhouse interior décor style, which is everywhere at the moment. It’s perfect for adding finishing touches to your table settings and creating a festive twist in your hall. Don’t forget the all-important wreath for your front door – the epitome of festive foliage.
Elegant and ornate is key when it comes to the renaissance trend this festive season. Take references from the 14th to 17th centuries but with a modern twist; pinks, pearls, silvers, velvet and feathers are a must. Add references to literature and music to your tree to create a truly glamourous renaissance theme.
With everyone spending a little more time at home this year, why not make your decorations yourself? From hand decorated baubles and wreaths to personalised Christmas cards – DIY decorations also make the perfect gift. Show your loved ones you’ve gone the extra mile this year with personal presents and make your house truly yours in the process.
Bright and bold
Bring your home to life by taking inspiration from pop art; a theme where anything goes, don’t be afraid to experiment with materials, colour and vibrancy. We’re talking neon, sequins and a selection of quirky Santa ornaments – the brighter the better. It will be hard not to smile when you look at your decorations this year.
Let it snow
Frost covered decorations have been popular for a few years and allow you to easily bring different colours and textures into your festive décor. Whites, silvers and greys can create a cool and wintery theme, while faux fur and glass baubles create the perfect contrast. Make your home a winter wonderland to be proud of.
