Christmas is one of the happiest dates on our calendar, where families come together to share and celebrate a year full of challenges, achievements, and goals exceeded. Therefore, a good Christmas decoration is essential at home, working side by side with our relatives to achieve beautiful and original results.
The Christmas decorations can vary greatly depending on the type of house, climate, location, and style that we develop. In this way, a decoration that invokes the Christmas spirit, but does not overshadow the rest of the elements that already make up our spaces, is crucial. Therefore, sometimes it is usually a really difficult task because you do not know where to start.
Today we bring you everything you need to know about Christmas decorations. To do this, we will give you a trip around every corner that you cover in your home, considering the colors and lighting that should work, even the ornaments and trends this year.
When starting the Christmas decoration it is essential to select an appropriate color palette, since this will help us define the concept and style that we want to project in our spaces. This considering that each tone expresses a different character to the environment and that it must adapt to the style that our home already has.
The mix of dark and bright tones, such as gold and black, provide a glamorous, refined, and elegant style, ideal for minimalist and modern environments. For its part, using whitish colors together with pieces of glass can transport us to a snowy landscape, where neatness and opulence prevail.
How we use lighting to our advantage plays a crucial role in Christmas decorations. In this sense, we must bet on placing our decorative elements near natural light, so that in the morning hours it affects the typical brightness of Christmas decorations and allows them to stand out.
For its part, artificial lights are typical of Christmas and are even considered part of the decorative elements. Therefore, it is recommended that they be placed as the basis of any arrangement, whether on the Christmas tree, the front door, the windows, or the arches of the home. However, it is crucial not to overload our decorations with these types of lights as they can overshadow the rest of the elements.
The entrance is the first impression that our family and friends take when they arrive at our home. In this sense, decorating the front door is vital for anyone who wants to project their Christmas spirit. For this, we can use garlands, crowns, inscriptions, frosted flowers, Christmas balls, and lights.
Similarly, if we want to achieve a contemporary style, it is advisable to use glass ornaments and white elements. On the other hand, a more traditional concept can be achieved if we include some red and green Christmas bows and balls. Also, if you are looking for a more natural style, you can make your wreaths with branches in circles and decorate them with some pinecones and flowers.
The Christmas tree is one of the centerpieces of this date, so its proper decoration should be an essential goal. Today, we can find infinities of designs and shapes to decorate it to our liking. The decoration of it can vary from ribbons, flowers, and bows to achieve a striking finish, to some decorative lights and Christmas decorations within a minimalist concept.
The most advisable thing is to rely on our relatives, mainly the children of the house for this work, since they are the ones who fill the decorations with joy. In addition, we can always surf the internet looking for ideas and taking note of the designs that most attract us.
Finally, we can opt for more novel and original options, creating a tree on the wall with some garlands and lights, or placing a small folding wooden tree, which is ideal for small spaces.
The table in the dining room is the place where we meet with our family to enjoy the evening. For this reason, we must take care of every detail of its decoration and preparation. In this sense, it is advisable to dress our table with tablecloths that reflect or highlight the tones of the environment, creating a large central path where we will place all our dishes.
To highlight the decorations, we can include some Christmas elements on the table and arrange with fruits or flowers in the center of it. Remember the correct order and protocol in which the crockery and cutlery should be arranged. This considering that they must be placed from the outside to the inside according to our menu. Also, the forks should always be arranged to the left; and the knives and spoons on the right.
In this decoration concept, white and gray tones that simulate snowy spaces predominate. In the same way, small copper, silver, or gold details can be included that gives shine to the room. In addition, it is advisable to make contrasts with glass elements and light-colored woods.
The eclectic concept brings together various shapes, styles, and colors, mixing them harmoniously and originally. Blue with silver and black with gold decorations are the biggest trend in this trend. In addition, you can integrate the Christmas decorations in materials such as glass, metal, and pearls.
This Christmas decorating trend is marked by vivid colors, bright ornaments, traditional patterns, and natural elements. Therefore, we can use the ornaments that we already have at home, mixing them and creating a new environment. However, we must avoid integrating more than three tones in the same arrangement or room.
The glamorous and refined concept is achieved through light and pastel colors, mixed with metallic elements and sparkling stones. In this style, it is essential to opt for good finishes, integrating only some elements that reflect a great personality.
Finally, it is important to remember that Christmas decorations should always reflect our spirit and personality, filling every corner of our home with positive energies. So, think no more, take note, unleash your creativity, and venture into decorating your spaces.
