Christmas is a time of year that is filled with an abundance of traditions and while every Christmas celebration is different from family to family, from home to home, one tradition that is often a constant is decorating for the season. What’s more, putting up your decorations can be a tradition in itself – maybe you gather together with your family, or perhaps you listen to a particular Christmas album while you decorate. Regardless of how, when or what you decorate, trends for Christmas change from year to year, and often reflect the trends in the design of that time period. Keep reading to discover our list of Christmas décor trends that are perfect for your luxury custom home this year, plus find out where to find experts in custom homes if you’re thinking about a luxury home renovation or build in the new year!
A Holly Jolly Traditional Christmas
This year there is a noticeable trend towards traditional Christmas décor when it comes to decorating. That’s right, it’s time to recreate the Christmases of your childhood, and pull out all the red, green, and gold that you can muster.
Lean into the nostalgia of these traditional Christmas decorations and create a Christmas wonderland filled with rich jewel tones, and warm colours and textures. From your Christmas tree to your dining table, you can incorporate this décor trend into your own home, with a luxury twist. Think: lush green garlands draped around doorways and bannisters adorned with deep red velvet bows, or red and gold glass ornaments trimming your tree.
A Very Neutral Christmas
Moving in a different direction, another trend for 2022 is neutral Christmas décor. You may favour a more neutral, or natural colour palette, in which case this trend might be for you! Decorating your home in line with this design trend will involve plenty of white, along with tones found in nature: predominantly green and shades of brown.
You could achieve this by incorporating sticks and twigs into a centrepiece, along with pops of green foliage, or even by investing in a snow-flocked Christmas tree. Imagine the stunning contrast of the white tree against the warmth of the flickering gold fairy lights in its branches!
This colour palette is sophisticated, and maybe not for the faint of heart, as it is quite a departure from the tones many of us are used to at Christmas. But it is certainly elegant and would be lovely in your custom home.
Deck the Halls with Metallics
This trend is all about metallics, particularly the good old Christmas season staples: gold and silver. Metallics can bring an elegant and modern twist to your Christmas décor, and you can incorporate this trend into your home this year in many ways.
Metallics can feature in your Christmas décor in the form of baubles on your tree, the tablecloth on the dinner table, or the vase that makes up part of your centrepiece, to name just a few.
Outdoors All the Way
When decorating luxury custom homes, it’s important to not neglect the outside of your house. Whether you decide to focus on your outdoor entertaining area, or your front yard and the façade of your home, the great outdoors is no doubt one of the great design features of your custom home, so it deserves to be decorated too!
In the backyard, you could twist fairy lights around the pergola, hang garlands around the patio, or even trim your shrubbery or potted plants with baubles and hanging decorations. Voila! A space fit for a festive outdoor Christmas lunch. Make sure to read this article on the best backyard features for your luxury home if you’re looking to upgrade or improve your outside space.
