Metallic Wonderland

2014 has seen a huge uptrend in the use of metallic accessories in home décor and it’s continuing throughout the holiday season. Think oversized gold or silver bows and ribbon on your Christmas tree, rhinestone-styled accessories, glittered menorahs, and mirrored chargers on your table setting to reflect all of that bling.

Non-Traditional Trees

If you thought that the only choice you had for your holiday tree was between a real evergreen and an artificial, you are sorely mistaken.  We are seeing a huge comeback of tree trends from the 50’s, like tinsel and flocked artificials, as well as new trends – all black or ombre holiday tree, anyone?

Natural Accents

Create visual interest in a room with the use of natural textures, like fur, burlap, wood, foliage, etc. Though natural décor has often been attributed to a more rustic feel, this year we are seeing it paired with the aforementioned metallics, creating a more contemporary atmosphere.

Jewel Toned

Think deep purple, rich turquoise, emerald and ruby to freshen up your otherwise vanilla décor. Pick one color to emphasize or use multiple! Pull in these vibrant hues through your tree ornaments, throw pillows and blankets, wrapping paper, bows, menorah candles, etc. This trend pairs perfectly with subdued metallic accents, like brushed nickel or rose gold.

Chevron Galore

The decorating world saw a huge chevron comeback in 2013 and the trend has yet to phase out. It’s a great print to use in bright shades for the kids’ tree decorations or to liven up a subdued burlap table runner. The great thing about chevron is it can be as fun or sophisticated as you want it to be.
