2018 Christmas Decoration Trends

December 8, 2018 | Written By: creativeview | Christmas

It’s nearly that time again. Temperatures are tumbling, every single shop in the world is on sale, and we’re looking forward to spending some well-deserved time off with family and friends. With Christmas just around the corner, have you thought about decorating your house? If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some of the coolest 2018 decoration trends.

Bringing the outside in

Conservatory CHristmas

If you’re fortunate enough to have a conservatory, an orangery, or outbuildings, this is the trend for you! The aim is to embrace the great outdoors in your indoor spaces. You can do this by placing Christmas trees in conservatories, using wreaths, garlands and foliage to create a winter wonderland in your orangery and adding potted trees with baubles and lights outside barns and sheds. Add a cosy feel with rugs, blankets, and throws, and opt for natural fabrics to carry the theme. You can enhance the wintry feel with snow spray on the windows and add decorations like polar bears, reindeer, stags, and robins.


rainbow christmas tree

You may have noticed that rainbow hues have enjoyed their moment in the spotlight this year. While bright colours are traditionally associated with summer and exotic holidays, this is a trend that isn’t going anywhere, even if it is freezing outside and the skies are grey. Rainbow Christmas is definitely a thing for 2018, and it’s a really simple trend to embrace. Opt for different coloured baubles, tinsel, and beads for indoor and outdoor trees, hang coloured lights on your tree and porch, and coordinate cushions, throws, and rugs with your Christmas decorations. The rainbow trend works for any room, and it’s a great option for kids. If you don’t fancy going all-out all over the house, why not opt for a single room, and keep the rest more understated? If you’ve got a conservatory, for example, you could turn this is into a vivid wonderland for the festive period.


neutral christmas

At the opposite end of the scale, the neutral trend is huge for 2018. Based on the simple but stylish Scandi home, the neutral palette is ideal for small spaces and homeowners who prefer a minimalist vibe. If you like crisp shades, you can’t abide clutter, and you like your rooms to look chic, spacious, and light, this could be the perfect look for you. Stick to light colours like white, cream, silver and gold, use lanterns and candles to add ambience, and steer clear of clashing prints and tones. The neutral trend is ideal for living rooms, kitchens, conservatories and orangeries, and it can create a really magical Christmassy feel. To add warmth in outdoor areas, stock up draught excluders, blankets and throws, and scatter white faux fur cushions and rugs on the floor and over the backs of chairs and sofas.

Are you on the hunt for inspiration for your Christmas decorations? If you’re undecided on a theme, or you’re not sure which colours to go for, hopefully, this article has given you some food for thought. Utilise the space you have, think about your individual taste and your lifestyle, and get decking those halls!
