It can be hard to be in a festive spirit with the Covid19 pandemic still chasing us and affecting our everyday life. The 2020 holiday season will no doubt introduce a different way of celebrating festivities with all of the restrictions and physical distancing in place in most parts of the world.
We will have to get creative and flexible by celebrating through Zoom and video conferencing. Consumers are likely to be more imaginative and resourceful when it comes to holiday decorations. With almost everyone spending more time indoors, efforts to make a cosy and spirited home increase.
Some will decorate their homes early to spread the holiday cheer. Others are likely to spend more time personalising and customising decorations for a more thoughtful and sustainable approach to decorating.
New approach to decorating
As people are better acquainted with their hobbies, there has been a surge in DIY projects. More people are embracing handmade gifts and decorations. The meaningful experience they get in creating provides a sense of comfort while passing time.
Thus, there will be a re-prioritization of values regarding quantity versus quality and sustainability. But this doesn’t mean people will skip or even lay-off decorating. Instead, the focus will shift to bigger and better decors that will bring them joy.
What brings happiness varies from person to person. Some people prefer big, glamourous and sparkly decors while others want simple, natural and toned-down designs. This 2020, we see trends that suit any taste.
Inspired by travels
This year, we will see more vibrant colours that exhibit fun and playfulness. As people reminisce on the happy thoughts and freedom of being outside, more people are inspired to bring in and bring back their fond memories of travelling.
Bright shades are sure to be one of the main focus of holiday decorating.
More people are also embracing the beauty of nature. This trend features materials in their natural state and shape. Twigs and branches are some of the materials used as decorations besides fresh Christmas trees.
This modest trend is highly sustainable and provides uniqueness you would not get from store-bought decorations.
Rich, jewel tones
Bold colours are a great way to welcome the holidays. With its attention-seeking attributes, it is no wonder that this trend is timeless.
Striking, rich colours such as jewel tones are a great way to transition from fall to winter. Whether your style is classic or modern, this trend will make your home feel cosy.
This trend features the ethereal colours of the winter sky in the early morning. It creates an elegant, feminine theme that matches a romantic or contemporary interior.
Soft plaids and honeycomb ornaments are the keys to achieving this trend.
A night under the stars
Who would miss the splendour of the cold Christmas night? This magical time makes a pleasant theme for modern, calm and minimalistic atmosphere into your home.
Some materials to include are metals, marble and velvet. As for patterns, zodiac signs and abstract faces are inspirations to look for.
Mirrors and crystals
Small spaces will benefit from mirrors and other shiny decors. The reflection of mirrors helps make any room appear larger.
Gold and other lustres will also highlight special flowers and branches.
The tranquillity that this theme provides fits what a lot of people need during this time. With the rising demand for yoga and relaxation aids, it is no wonder that they are looking for serene and peaceful arrangements for the holidays.
Incorporate silver and white lights for uniformity. Add a pop colour if you wish to break the monotony.
