 #1 Christmas decor trends for 2017

Country styling is all about raw, rustic elements paired with classic forms and up-cycled pieces for a homely, tactile and relaxing feel.

Think raw wood, textured finishes, industrial metals, hessian fabrics, beautiful linens, tree motifs, vintage tableware and a mix of traditional Chrissy colours. It’s a classic festive look with a farmhouse spin.

Christmas decor styling trend tips 2017

The Nordic Style has taken the world by storm over recent years and has become one of the biggest interiors trends around the globe. We will see Nordic style continue to have a strong influence on Christmas decorating in 2017, but a more pared back palette of soft neutrals with lots of blonde wood, heavy textures and pops of metallic will be the backbone of the look this year.

It’s a relaxed, calming look that embraces quality materials, Scandinavian shapes, muted tones, clean lines and tactile, natural elements.
