7 Christmas Trends in 2022 You Won’t Want to Miss …
Now I have my own Christmas Collection of beautiful decor, I’m inevitably becoming more aware of ‘trends’, although I tend to curate my homeware brand around artisanal pieces that will last for years to come and be versatile enough to fit with changing interiors.
It’s more cost effective and sustainable that way, then you can have fun with the low cost items and creativity!
Here are my 7 Christmas Trends in 2022 You Won’t Want to Miss (yet versatile enough that you won’t be ready to change them by next year!)…
As we’re all becoming more conscious about preserving our planet we’re inevitably being more considered about how we furnish our homes too.
Sustainable materials minimise the impact on our environment yet also bring a sense of sophistication and personality to schemes so it’s a win-win!
Rustic woods, ceramics, neutral paper, textured wicker, tactile fabric and antique metals are central to this trend, which at Christmas incorporates decorations such as build your own paper crackers from stores like Hobbycraft, velvet ribbons from haberdasheries and from my own Christmas Collection…
Wooden cone trees, paper star tree topper, fabric wall advent calendars and artisan-made rustic cowbell decorations or garlands made famous by McGee and Co which are so beautiful they’ll be passed down through generations.
Post-covid times we’ve all craved a more Hygge way of life and embraced the natural world around us, which has in turn transcended into us creating calm sanctuaries in our homes.
Neutral colour palettes and natural materials inspired by our walks in the woods and need for a soothing space around us will inspire our Christmas decorations, such as lots of white with natural green and soft wood tones.
In my own collection I’ve introduced a green foliage door wreath and fireplace or table green leaf garland which can be enjoyed on its own throughout the year or dressed up for the season with rustic metal cowbells and berry and red bell or pine cone and wooden star fairy lights.
The Scandinavian interiors trend has been around for a fair few years now but it’s really gained traction more recently and it incorporates natural elements such as greenery, dried oranges and paper decorations. In terms of colour schemes they tend to be centred around white with touches of gold, silver and sometimes traditional red.
I can say with certainty that Pampas plumes in the Christmas Tree will definitely be seen again this year. The reason I know this? Because Stacey Solomon has shared snippets on Instagram Stories of her DIY pampas grass Christmas tree made using foraged materials and we all know how much influence she has on creative home decor lovers!
This teamed with our extra long wooden beads garland in favour of tinsel or ribbon on the tree would make the perfect combination for a boho Christmas.
Traditional Christmas touches will always be timeless but if you look at the collections in stores such as Anthropologie you’ll see lots of nods to retro and vintage decor like nostalgic santa mugs and antique-looking ornaments.
To save this trend looking a bit old-fashioned, I personally love to mix in traditional pieces with modern look items too. It creates a really interesting and fresh look.
Perhaps you might like to weave in retro ornaments amongst the green foliage garland from my homeware collection and top them off with the Oh So Kel battery operated fairy lights – either the Nordic Star wooden stars and pine cones or Red Berry design.
6.Honeycomb and Paper Christmas Decorations
I’ve touched on these in a few trends already but they definitely deserve a spot in their own right!
Our set of 6 honeycomb baubles in muted neutral tones look just as beautiful in our Mango Wood Dough Bowl (also sold as a bundle with our boho beads garland too) as they do hung from the tree.
Using brown paper for gift wrapping can be really exciting too; get creative using a whiteboard pen to draw designs or use our mini cowbells with ribbon to make them extra special.
7.Candles and Lanterns
Candles are a firm favourite in the home all-year round, but there’s something incredibly magical about candlelight at Christmas and this year taper candles are a big trend to look out for.
I sell gold candlesticks and black taper candle holders in sets of three as they look beautiful grouped together on a fireplace, console table or amongst greenery in a festive tablescape. Team them with taper candles from my collection in Sand or Taupe for an extra special touch.
