Interior Trends: Christmas Trends 2018
Every Christmas takes on a slightly different hue. Of course, there are the age-old favourites when it comes to Christmas décor, but for those willing to be perhaps a little more daring, or for those who merely want to be on trend for this years’ festivities, we’ve collated some of the top trends for Christmas 2018. Discover the trends here, and the best ways to achieve them in your home.
Why choose one colour when you can have them all? This year’s predicted standout trend is for a rainbow Christmas tree. Spiral and layer multicoloured baubles from the top to the bottom of the tree. This is a cheerful, uplifting trend that will undoubtedly bring some colour to your Christmas. If you want to give this trend a try, these John Lewis baubles come in (almost) every colour. Start with one colour and wind down the tree changing colour for each section to end up with a rainbow tree. If you want to go all out, how about investing in some of these psychedelic standout baubles or embrace a little “D.I.S.C.O.” with this shimmery glitter bauble.
Make it “a blue, blue Christmas” with this season’s coolest shade. Unlike the more traditional reds and greens, blue ornaments really stand out amongst the crowd. With shades ranging from icy blue to teal and midnight navy, blue is a versatile colour that looks sophisticated and glamorous when paired with shimmery silver or antique gold.
We were ahead of the curve this year with our Autumn/Winter 2018 Fabric Edit. Natural textured fabrics and colours are a favourite trend this season and will remain so as we move into Spring 2019. This trend is all about layering various textures to create and cohesive, cosy environment without looking too matchy-matchy. The tonal colour palette is based on earthy, natural shades, while the textured surfaces add visual and tactile interest. Decorate with pine cones and structural branches to bring a little of the outside indoors. Don’t forget to add your textured blankets & throws for added warmth and even more texture.
People are taking a shine to jewel colours and tones this season with ruby reds, sapphire blues, glowing amber and emerald greens being top of the wish list. John Lewis has separated their ornaments into these popular shades, helping you to shop for the whole look in one go. These tones offer a glamorous, sophisticated take on colour for Christmas and are far more muted than, say, the rainbow trend above. Pair these beautiful colours with natural deep green foliage and golden highlights for some seriously smart Christmas décor.
