Happy Holidays I shall say? According to the pictures, yes. I think you have noticed by now that I’m kind of in the feeling already. It caught me this weekend when I was thinking about how to decorate our house this year. Sadly enough, I didn’t decorate the last two years, cause I was relatively lazy. Hence, I really feel I have to compensate this year. Therefore, I took a tour through glorious Pinterest to get some inspirations and I came back with this – my personal interpretation of Christmas Decoration Trends 2014. (At this point I want to thank Pinterest of its existence – I can’t live without you anymore!)
Are you also in christmassy mood already? Do you want to know what some of the hottest Christmas Decoration Trends are for this year? I assume yes. Get ready for a colorful Holiday Season 2014. I cover alternative christmas tree designs, gift wrapping ideas, loads of gold and bottle brushes.
Wood is the keyword. I found these cute little wooden christmas trees from WoodWoolStool. Aren’t they lovely? You can buy them on Ingrid’s Etsy shop. I spy that All the Luck in the World made use of Ingrid’s alternative christmas tree idea as well already. These wooden trees are great, cause they are sustainable and you can decorate them every year differently. If it floats your boat, you can even paint them every year differently.
Stitching and neon colors are two other trends I considered to be interesting this year. 101Woonideeen shows how to use both trends in one with this wall mobilé. What do you think about this? I love it. If you scroll down you will find more color trends and wall decoration. While writing this post, I’m getting all these great Xmas DIY ideas I need to share with you in the next post.
Besides, neon shades, pink and pastel colors, I believe gold plays a big role, at least for me. Ifra Lahell‘s pretty Christmas balls combine pastel colors and gold. I’m certain they would look great in a Scandinavian designed home. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Ifra showed this Holiday decor on her Norwegian blog. I think I just found another favorite blog. Check out her Pinterest here.
The second version of Ingrid’s wooden Christmas tree is also super cute. 101Woonideeen has another version, which you can also build yourself at home. I also love the garland. Find the step-by-step guide here.
Did you notice these great paper stars? I think the first time I saw them was in Sweden during the Christmas season. They made the city look so much cozier, due to the warm light. At IKEA they are called Stråla and they exist in several colors every year. However, these paper stars from Blog wunderschön-gemacht I like, cause they are used as wall decor. Stråla from IKEA are actually lights. I like both versions, but the paper stars for the wall are a great alternative and totally on trend. You find them everywhere. So on Selina Lake’s blog. Check it our here.
Have you ever seen a washi tape Christmas tree? Definitely a durable version of the modern Christmas tree. Or let’s say easy removable version, in case you get sick of it. I have it say, I love it. Especially how this ‘tree’ was decorated. It could be also a cute idea for girl’s room.
Pink and neon together with black and white – a great combination, especially when you open any 101Woonideeen magazine. That’s why I enjoy reading it so much and why I bombard you with ideas from them here. Above, a nice idea how to even decorate your home office christmassy. Easy and done in seconds, but with a wow effect.
The picture with the gold leaf I decided to put here cause of two reasons. 1) My favorite color is gold, besides pink and pastel and neon and so on. 2) Cause it shows me preparing Christmas gift wrapping. You can easily use some glue and attach a layer of gold leaf to create a shining effect for any gift.
Well, first I thought, what a stupid idea – why would you spray paint bottle brushes and use them as christmas trees.. However, then I realised – oh my, that’s brilliant. Sometimes I ask myself how people can think of those super creative ideas. Pinterest is full of them. Again, yes, I love Pinterest. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have discovered the bottle brushes from 101Woonideeen. You can find the DIY here. Creating them will cost you only 21€ and 45 minutes – great, huh?
Now, what do you think about my Piñata Christmas ball wall decor? Funny, right? If you have very good imagination, you can see Rudolph as well.
If you arrange a friends or blogger get together during the Christmas season, I recommend looking on 101Woonideeen for inspiration. I found this christmassy table setting with paper confetti, hand-drawn Christmas glass balls and of course the cake. A party is no party without a proper cake. I guess you agree here.
The tassels and sequins I bought in Utrecht at Beadies. I’m going to use them in a Christmas DIY project, which I’m going to share with you in another post. Of course there will be more Christmas posts. We are only in November – there is enough time. Don’t you worry! Here with I hop over to the last image and then I saw good bye and let the Holidays begin.
Colorful bottle brushes again and a car carrying a lonely green bottle brush tree. Phew – I think I used bottle brush and Christmas approximately 10 times in this single post. That should boost my SEO for sure. So if you need to get more bottle brush inspiration, visit Yvestown.
