Natural is the predicted trend this Christmas
WANT to be ‘in’ with the ‘in’ crowd this Christmas? Then go natural...
Rachel Doran says we’ll see natural themed decorations featuring in many homes this festive season.
The founder of the online, artisan, home and gift boutique, www.elsieandfleur.co.uk, continues: “One of the key trends is going back to nature this Christmas – using wood and eco-friendly, natural materials. Woodland creatures will be popular decorations again this year. Perfect for a rustic Christmas setting, so don’t be surprised to see a variety of owl, rabbit, fox and deer ornaments.
“Products made from driftwood will also be on people’s Christmas list such as wreaths and Christmas trees. We expect people to be bring the outside in and create homemade decorations for the woodland theme with pine cones and holly.
“In contrast to this we anticipated that contemporary colourful decorations using stained glass will be all the rage too. Bright red, which is one of the quintessential colours of the festive season will still be key but within this theme used with all the colours of the rainbow. Bright and bold and simple will be effective.”
