Christmas Decor Trends for 2018 – How to decorate

With Christmas being the most wonderful time of the year, the holidays offer us a chance to spend time with our families, stuff ourselves with some hearty meals and decorate our homes to mark the occasion. Join us as we explore some of the dominating Christmas decor trends of 2018, sharing the Christmas home accessories, tips and tricks to help transform your home to a winter wonderland.

Rainbow Christmas tree decor

You will need more Christmas baubles for the colours near the base of the tree, so stick to a colour palette you enjoy, otherwise you can incorporate the ‘rainbow’ trend to your Christmas home decor ideas by creating a gradual spectrum of colours in this way.


Metallic candle holders and ornaments, gold cutlery and even beaded placemats go well with mini, copper Christmas baubles for your tree. Christmas tree ribbons and florals in gold, silver and copper provide that beautiful shimmer, marking a number of ways to create the perfect metallic-inspired Christmas decor.


Plaid Christmas furnishings are warm, soft and rustic, making for the perfect accompaniment to the holidays. Inject a country/cosy feel to your decor with these traditional Christmas accessories and spruce up your sofa with wool throws and cushions. Plaid Christmas stockings just waiting to be opened on Christmas morning complete this look.

Christmas LEDs

LED lighting – such as LED lanterns is essential for setting the right mood during the holidays. You can create light, atmosphere and warmth with the mere flick of a switch. And unlike older kinds of Christmas lights, LEDs are brighter, don’t use as much electricity, and come in all varieties from fairy lights to neon as well. Why not Try the custom editor and write out a holiday message to pin on your wall or outside your home, it could be the ultimate welcome for any guests over the holiday period.

Unconventional stars

While decorating with stars might seem conventional, Christmas decor trends for 2018 are dedicated to celebrating the classic interior with a modern twist. Mix and match textures, materials and sizes to play with the traditional shape. Star lighting, hanging star lanterns and even abstract star ornaments add a contemporary feel to the classic decor items.


Christmas decor trends follow on from the interior decor trends of 2018, taking us back to our earthy roots. The beauty of the outdoors is brought indoors, with wooden Christmas home accessories, while the natural shades and materials will perfectly complement the crisp, fresh snow and the cosy glow in your home. Start with your dining table and emulate the outdoors with a tablescape featuring wooden plate chargers and rustic cutlery.

Festoon lighting

Festoon lighting perfectly illuminates your rooms, emitting a warm, soft glow as opposed to harsh, bright lights. For more unique decor, wrap festoon lighting around your Christmas tree or even drape over mirrors and wall art to create a cosy atmosphere.

Black and gold

A combination of black and gold colours can prove utterly marvellous if you’re looking for classic, sophisticated and luxurious Christmas home accessories; from gold ribbons on the tree to black Christmas baubles and even tableware. This decor trend is truly sumptuous and proving to be very popular with West End customers.
