From the first notes of the song “All I want for Christmas”, we are all ready to wear our worst reindeer sweater. The kitsch style is instead forbidden when it comes to Christmas decorations and table décor.
Let’s find out what are the colours and trends indispensable for this Christmas.
To each his own style
The trend styles for Christmas holidays are very different from each other and this allows each environment to be transformed without compromising its individuality and its own distinctive characteristics.
Rococo style is perfectly suitable for luxurious salons and environments, the protagonist in this case is gold, in contrast with very dark colours such as dark blue or chocolate brown. The Rococo brings back to life the splendour of the seventeenth-century courts where marble, lace and precious stones were a symbol of elegance and richness. The choice of this style also allows you to dare with extravagant decorations and maybe opting for gold or silver candles.
The shabby chic style has already started to conquer restaurants and hotels so why not embrace it even during the holidays? Just start with shiny lights, wooden decorations and scented candles. The dominant colours are white, grey and beige and pastel colours, a refined and homey style.
