Will your Christmas be trimmed in tradition or draped in gold? To help with your Christmas inspiration this year, we’ve uncovered our Top 5 Christmas trends for 2017!
One of our favourite trends this year is gold! Even featured on the Christmas tree in our showroom, this metallic and luxurious tone has stolen our hearts. We love to match it with black and white to squeeze even more luxury out of this shade. Feather wreaths, sequined poinsettias, many baubles and various garlands can be spotted in The Prop House draped in gold, champagne and copper tones. Pair gold with black and white for opulence, or team it with white washed timber for a sophisticated dream-like effect.
Christmas is all about uniting with friends and family, and what better way to welcome guests into your home than with a raw, organic and rustic design. We’re embracing the Danish concept, hygge; to live cozy and comfortable. Create a warm and inviting space this Christmas with textures of timber, wool or even antler. Share food, drinks and conversation among pieces influenced by the earth, with a neutral colour palette keeping the ambiance relaxed and cozy.
While we like to stay clear of tinsel, there are other ways to capture tradition in an exquisite red and green colour palette. The luxury of red velvet poinsettias are a welcome addition to Nordic trees, green wreaths or just used in a table vase. Christmas parties come alive with the glitter finishes of these traditional Christmas flowers that both grandma and your friends will surely approve of. Cranberries aren’t only for your ham; bunched in clusters down the table, a garland around the tree or even a delicate pop to your table setting, Christmas berries are everywhere this season. Match them with white for a minimalist finish, or gold accents for a lavish touch.
“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” is one of the tunes you might hear as you enter our Woolloongabba showroom. Classic yet beautiful, creating a white themed Christmas allows for a wonderful experimentation of textures and you can’t get much wrong. From cotton to faux snow, 100% white trees, and baubles in glitter, matte and shiny finishes are just the beginning for creating a winter wonderland within your home. Add hints of rose gold, copper or silver to create extra dimension and a pop of luxury.
Bright, vivid, dramatic and theatrical are some words to describe one trend this year – colour! Make your Christmas Merry and Bright by mixing things up with a striking collection of colour. Use blue, green, orange and purple to create flare and personality. Keep it classy with modern matte finishes or limit your colours so the effect ‘pops’. We love the monotone use of over-sized blue florals spiraled up the tree or colourful baubles in various shapes and sizes to create depth and dimension. Keep the effect going through your wrapping paper and crockery for a touch of fun.
