Christmas is a great opportunity to freshen up the home environment, make it more bright and individual. To create a Christmas interior in your home, you don’t need to limit your imagination to the tree and garlands because there are a lot of unusual and interesting ideas. And in this case, you don’t have to hit a jackpot as soon as you’ve entered your PlayAmo login – everything is inexpensive. Moreover, almost every interior style has something to offer for the festive and beautiful decoration of the space.
The Scandinavian style evokes the most persistent associations with winter, snow, frost outside, and warmth inside the house. A festive entourage in this style can be created with the help of homemade decor items, which can be created by all members of the family.
Natural materials are one of the key conditions of the Scandinavian style. Choose items made of wood, natural fabrics, and furs for Christmas decorations. If possible, use wooden kitchen utensils. Glassware such as vases, candleholders, tableware are also in demand. Glass looks like ice, so it has a strong association with winter.
Even if your interior is more saturated, it is not difficult to bring a piece of Scandinavian style into it. Drap the walls with light fabrics, use bedspreads, pillows, tablecloths in natural colors. Large weaves, jacquard patterns, homemade knitting – all this will remind you of winter and the holiday. Furs, even small decorative elements, will also be organic in the decoration.
Scandinavian style is a good choice for the Christmas interior because it gives us a fairytale atmosphere and the expectation of a Christmas miracle.
Country style, despite its simplicity, also has something to offer for the Christmas holidays.
Feel free to pull out the red and white items: dishes, tablecloths, napkins, bedspreads, and plaids. The Christmas tree should also be added. Decorate it with snowflakes, icicles, reindeer figurines, stars, and necessarily large and bright bows.
If you want a more relaxed atmosphere, then turn to the rustic style, so similar, but different from the country. For a rustic Christmas interior, simple materials are actively used:
- Wood, conveying the very spirit of country life. These are not very large pieces of furniture (shelves, chests), as well as photo frames, boxes with a natural surface texture.
- Paper for Christmas tree decorations. Sacking paper for creating decorative items – dry bouquets, wreaths, etc.
Also, the rustic style can be emphasized by compositions from dried twigs, cones, straw.
This style isn’t so popular. But in fact, it became a symbol of freedom at the time of its formation. Boho is the embodiment of freedom, which blended the bold views of French youth, gypsy chic, and dozens of motifs of different peoples.
Boho is great if your Christmas decor needs to be motley, bright, and carry a message about your outlook on the world. It requires:
- Country-style, Scandinavian-style, and vintage wood furniture. An aged look and real antiques from rental apartments are welcome.
- Fabrics in bright colors found in nature: orange, blue, crimson, yellow, lettuce.
- Various little things are made of wood, metal, and other natural materials. Boldly mix folk styles from different continents and nations.
- Handmade accessories: dream catchers, garlands, crocheted items.
Mix but Don’t Stir
The 20th century, which accelerated the pace of change in everything, created a need to fit new things into ordinary settings. This need crystallized the main features of the style of “fusion” – to combine incomputable items. The key to success was the meaningfulness of interior design: the furnishings are selected under a certain color scheme or under a certain story, which is to be solved by observers.
Thanks to this, fusion can be mixed differently. So, the Christmas decoration also has no strict framework. Do you want to add to the modern interior vintage crafts and toys, once forgotten in the attic? Yes, please, the main thing is to maintain the color ensemble and the visual dynamics of the room.
Designers name a few key shades for fusion. They are white, gray, brown and the color bronze. We think you immediately have appropriate associations: wooden masks, bronze statuettes, marble products… Feel free to experiment, fusion is only welcome!
And lastly but not least, our favorite loft. This rough-looking but memorable and individual style can make a great home freshener for Christmas. Although it doesn’t seem traditional for this time of the year, it will be loved even by kids.
For the Christmas loft, choose many sources of dim light. Of course, garlands, with which you can decorate the walls, windows, stairs. Take several garlands, use lamps. They can be in different colors, and the interior will benefit from it.
Update the posters on the walls by replacing them with winter themes: Christmas movie posters, vintage advertisements, pin-ups.
For decorating, such materials as metal wire, fishing line, cords are actively used. They can be used to make accessories or decor items. You can put a Christmas tree as a live one, as well as an artificial one, the latter will be even more colorful. Do not choose too fancy ornaments for the tree, as you need to observe the restraint. Glass toys, figures made of plywood or metal will be organic.
After all, Christmas is what everyone is looking for each year. Magical outside decorations and movies you watch will make the atmosphere even brighter. However, if you add some decorations to your house, you will make these winter days more remarkable.
