Christmas inflatables

Christmas inflatables are quickly becoming the decorating trend of the year and it is easy to see why. Not only do these cheerful decorations add a festive touch to any outdoor space, but they also serve as a wonderful backdrop for holiday photos. Popular examples of Christmas inflatables include snowmen, Santa with his reindeer and jolly elves, and even a giant inflatable snow globe that are not common for the human eye and will surely delight anyone. This epic snow globe can be embellished with winter scenes inside or swirling lights for an enchanting nighttime effect that looks like something out of a winter wonderland. It's no wonder why they are quickly becoming one of the hottest decorating trends this holiday season!

Natural Materials

One key trend, which dominant is dominant in both all-year-round home as well Christmas décor is the use of natural materials. Homeowners and landlords know the benefits of wood flooring but especially how versatile it is, able to be paired with various tones and colours throughout the seasons and over the years. Opting for 12mm thick laminate is great for the winter weather, helping you keep warm and cosy as the icy breezes whip outside, it will also accompany the wicker tree toppers, ornaments made from reclaimed wood. The scavenged or bought pinecones sitting in the tree will also bring the outside in.

The existing traditions of wreathes play well in this environment. In this instance, many of the components will be fake plants – simply so it can be reused and kept – it does not take away the fact that it has a natural aesthetic.

Nordmann Fir is a Staple

What Christmas tree you choose will play a huge part in your home’s festivities. There are many designs and styles out there for you to choose from, but if you want to go for something a little more traditional then why not opt for the Nordmann fir? This type of tree will give you that nostalgic feel and it will also help your house to feel like a home.

Silver Reigns Supreme

This year it would seem that metallics are going to reign supreme. As the modern more paired-back interiors appear to take hold, silver is expected to take the front and centre spot this season. The great thing about silver is that it is very muted, and it gives a nice cool tone as well. It is going to help to bring the outside in without you having to put up with the cold temperatures. Gold, which was the colour of 2020, is also going to come back. It helps toad both warmth and depth to the home and it also helps to contrast against the leading silver.

Nostalgic Décor

When you look at the past year, you will soon see that tradition is very important. Christmas this year is going to be very special, and the nostalgia of the festive season is going to be close to everyone’s hearts. Using vintage ornaments and even old crockery is going to help bring back memories and on top of this, it is also going to help bring back memories of the past. This is incredibly beneficial to those who love nostalgic décor as well as those who have access to accessories such as this.


This is the time when everyone comes together and therefore it is important to ensure that homes are accommodating of this. Homes need to be vibrant and social spaces and one way to emphasize this would be for people to focus more on personalisation. Now is the time for you to let your décor taste shine.
