December 2022

Christmas is a hectic time of year. Between shopping for presents, cooking all the food for the big day, and decorating your home with the latest Christmas trends, it can all be a little overwhelming! Thankfully, this year’s trends for Christmas are fuss-free and easy to incorporate into your home. Here are a few tips to get you started.

What is the trend for Christmas 2022?

The trend for Christmas 2022 is a return to more traditional colours and decorations, along with an increase in the gifting of experiences rather than material items. This year has seen a shift in consumer preferences away from tangible products and towards experiential gifts such as tickets to events or holiday parties or memberships to local attractions.

When it comes to decorating, less is more this year. Many people are starting to embrace a minimalist approach to their displays, which is sure to add a touch of chic to your holiday decorations. Try using a few pieces instead of tons of ornaments to create an elegant display that will make your home look festive without going overboard.

What are the colours for Christmas 2022?

Christmas 2022 will see a return to more muted colours, such as gold, silver and white, as well as the use of natural elements, such as fresh greenery.

This season’s colour palette is all about neutrals, such as white, gold, silver and cream. This tasteful combination is perfect for creating a classic look that will feel timeless for years to come. To create a more natural look this Christmas, try using decorations made from timber, paper or natural elements like pinecones or berries.

The use of greenery also continues to grow in popularity as people look for ways to bring the beauty of nature into their homes during the holiday season. This trend looks set to continue in the future as people seek out a more authentic and laid-back approach to the Christmas season.

How can I make my house feel Christmassy?

Making your house feel festive doesn’t have to be complicated – a few simple touches can make all the difference. Adorning your home with pine cones and holly, hanging Christmas decorations and lights can help create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. Scented candles can add a touch of luxury to your home.

Christmas garlands and wreaths are an easy way to add a festive touch to any room in the house and are especially inviting when used to decorate your front door. You can even make your own with some pretty greenery from your garden.

Finally, one of the best ways to bring festive cheer into your home is by making some of your favourite Christmas treats. Baking cookies, making mince pies, or even a Christmas cake are easy and delicious ways to indulge the whole family! And they’re a great way to get creative and have some fun while getting into the Christmas spirit!
