We know you are looking forward to this as much as we are excited to share it! It’s time to take a look at the Christmas Décor Trends we are loving in 2021.
After another year of seemingly never-ending challenges, and unexpected events, it comes as welcome relief to have the joy and positivity of the festive season just around the corner. With a little over 3 months until Christmas Day 2021 is upon us, it’s officially time to start decorating for Christmas!
So, what are the hot Christmas Décor Trends for 2021 we hear you ask?! Without further ado, let’s dive into our favourite décor trends that are sure to be appearing in festively decorated homes this year.
Flourish with Flowers
A Christmas Décor Trend for 2021 that is showing no signs of going anywhere, is the use of flourishing flowers and festive Christmas florals at every opportunity.
From the Christmas tree, to the Christmas table, and everywhere in between, flowers and florals provide endless opportunities to enhance your Christmas decorating. Flowers come is such a wide variety of colours, textures and styles that they can be easily incorporated into almost any Christmas décor style.
From the traditional reds, greens and neutrals…
…to recreating the beauty of the Australian bush…
…and of course a little glitter and sparkle…
…there are so many options and opportunities when it comes to using flowers and florals in your Christmas decorating this year.
One of the great things about using faux flowers is that you don’t have to worry about trying to keep them alive or the colour and quality quickly fading. It also means that once the festive season is done, you don’t necessarily have to pack them away, but you can instead repurpose them for gorgeous floral displays to brighten your home décor at any time of the year.
An extra addition to the floral Christmas Décor Trends for 2021 is the introduction of the use of preserved flowers. Preserved flowers are a gorgeous way to add a natural touch and plenty of beautiful texture to your Christmas décor.
Inherently, preserved flowers are extremely delicate to handle and work with, but excitingly you can recreate the look and feel of these natural beauties with artificial or faux floral pieces that look just like their preserved counterparts.
Channel Homely, Cosy and Warm
Now, perhaps more than ever before, we have a renewed appreciation for the warmth and comfort of home. You can embrace and build upon that safe and cosy feeling that you’ve come to love with a farm fresh inspired Christmas Décor Trend for 2021.
Think cute forest birds and animals combined with touches of glittering snow and plenty of nostalgic buffalo check and gingham in festive red, black and white. Whether you are dreaming of a white Christmas in a faraway land, are an avid rustic farmhouse style decorator, or just love the simple joy and comfort that this relaxed but sophisticated style brings to your home, sprinkle a little farm fresh Christmas décor in your home this festive season.
Enjoy the homely, cosy atmosphere that is created by combining traditional Christmas décor elements with hints of clean and contemporary styling and be sure to treasure the plenty of warm smiles and hugs that are almost inevitable with this hard-to-resist Christmas decorating trend that is sure to get everyone in the mood.
Beautiful in Blue
We’re expecting to continue to see plenty of beautiful blue featured in the Christmas Décor Trends for 2021.
With a multitude of gorgeous hues to choose from, it’s easy to incorporate this popular colour into your Christmas decorating. From pastel and sea foam to navy and darker shades, there’s a perfect blue to compliment your existing Christmas décor, regardless of your chosen style.
Bring an added level of elegance and sophistication to your traditionally themed Christmas decorating by introducing darker shades of blue, such as navy and royal blue.
When combined with the traditional Christmas colours of rich red and green, dark blue brings a sense of regal-inspired prestige and luxury to your home. Add dark blue baubles, tree decorations and ornaments to your tree, inspired by the Christmas trees of royal families and castles around the world.
There’s no need to stop at the tree. The inclusion of dark blue throughout your home continues the sense of refined sophistication you’ve created on the tree. Dark blue is the perfect addition to wreaths, mantles and gorgeously wrapped gifts too!
If you love the idea of embracing this Christmas Décor Trend for 2021 by adding a hint of blue to your Christmas décor, and your Christmas decorating theme has a more contemporary vibe, then light and pastel blues might be just the thing.
Light and pastel blue can add an extra element of interest, as well as a wonderful softness, to your existing pastel pink or neutral-based Christmas decorating theme. Incorporate beautiful pastel blue hues in your stockings, wreaths and many other décor pieces too.
There are lots of lovely ways to include soft blue touches in your tree as well, with exquisite decorative baubles and tree decorations.
Beautiful blue is also the perfect accessory to style a beach inspired Christmas. Whether you’re celebrating a warm Australian Christmas and want to nod to one of our favourite pastimes in your decorating, or perhaps you are somewhere where the temperature is a little cooler and you want to recreate the warmth and joy of being at the beach, be sure to use plenty of blue as reference to the sunny sky and the salty sea.
Indulge Your Sweet Side
Without a doubt, one of the most popular Christmas decorating pieces of all time is the classic Candy Cane. Such a popular – and instantly recognisable – icon of the festive season, the humble candy cane is often a regular inclusion in traditionally inspired Christmas decorating styles.
As is the case with decorating trends, there is often a new and creative way to give a refreshing update or twist to a traditional favourite. And so we come to the next Christmas Décor Trend for 2021. Sure to melt hearts and tantalise tastebuds with its contemporary take on a classic, we are just loving the addition of pink and mint green to the traditional Christmas colour palette of red, white and green.
Bold patterns, bright colours and cute Christmas character ornaments combine with a retro and vintage inspired vibe to channel everything that is fun and whimsical about celebrating Christmas.
A Christmas celebration is not complete without plenty of sweet treats and a little excessive indulgence, so make sure you overload on all the sugary treasures too to really spoil yourself in this delightful Christmas decorating trend.
Customised Christmas Décor with Craft & DIY
Christmas crafting is another Christmas Décor Trend for 2021 that is only continuing to grow in popularity. We love Christmas crafting for so many reasons.
As we find ourselves spending more time at home, Christmas crafting definitely is a great hobby to while away the hours. Not only can it keep you busy for hours (as many or as little as you’d like!), but directing your thoughts to something as positive and uplifting as Christmas can certainly be a welcome distraction too.
Aside from the therapeutic benefits, Christmas craft is a perfect way to create truly unique and one-of-a-kind pieces for your Christmas decorating. You get to choose exactly what you like and can feel an amazing sense of pride in completing, displaying and sharing your festive Christmas creations.
Whether you are a relative novice or a seasoned crafting pro, there are so many options for creating gorgeous Christmas craft and DIY projects. From DIY wreaths and table centrepieces to beautiful pieces for a mantle, vignette or atop your tree, there is something for everyone and every style. Once you’ve honed in on your decorating theme or favourite Christmas Décor Trend for 2021, pick a Christmas DIY project to match, stock up on craft supplies and get busy crafting and having lots of festive fun!
Decorating for Christmas is something that brings so much joy for so many reasons. From the planning, through to the execution and sitting back to take it all in, the decorator and all that have the pleasure of sharing in the festive atmosphere that has been lovingly created can’t help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
No matter your Christmas decorating style – whether it is steeped in tradition, overflowing with sophistication and elegance, full of whimsy and fun, or stylish and contemporary, this year’s diverse and rich Christmas Décor Trends for 2021 provide plenty of freshness and inspiration to guide you to creating an amazing, on-trend, Christmas wonderland in your home this festive season.
