Top 4 Holiday trends:

Below are our top 4 Holiday trends recommended by our favorite designers:

MONOCHROMATIC design will be a big trend this year for Christmas. This trend highlights existing textures and architectural details, creating layers that make a space feel cozy and couture. Go neutral with white, beiges, and grays or add in festive holiday colors. For a bold look, try black or darker color tones to create a chic moody space.

PAMPAS: Move over Christmas greenery, Pampas grass is the new guy in town! We’ve seen pampas everywhere this past year – from weddings, to nurseries and everywhere in between – now it’s time to incorporate the lush, pillowy grass into modern, minimalistic boho Christmas designs. They can be added into your Christmas tree, made into a wreath or used as an alternative to traditional garland!

ASYMMETRICAL: I look forward to decorating for Christmas every year, and one trend in holiday decor that I’ve noticed this year is asymmetrical garland and trees. I’ve especially noticed this with asymmetrical garland over the fireplace. It’s a more modern look which I love to complement the rest of my furnishings and decor!

Stick to the classics! Holiday decor is always changing, I recommend building a timeless collection of decorations that will outlast any trend. Glass bulbs, velvet bows, and warm white lights are always in style. When it comes to color, try building a foundation of neutrals (creams, whites, metallics) from there, layer in one accent color of varying shades to add depth and contrast.
