1. Make it a mod Christmas.

For a 2021 spin on the festive season, try an unexpected colour palette of black and white. The combination is super trendy right now (not to mention fool-proof!). Try a faux white tree covered in white Christmas tree decorations with a pop of black velvet ribbon for a sleek and chic look.

2. (Ginger) snap to it!

Much like the Christmas tree in your living room, a gingerbread house is the pièce de résistance in your dining area. Place it on a tray with faux snow and decorative bottle brush trees to create the sweetest centrepiece this side of the North Pole. (Best of all, no one needs to know if yours is store-bought!)

3. Take a trip to Santa’s Village.

Who knows holiday décor better than Mr. and Mrs. Claus? Go for a classic colour scheme of red and green, paired with decorative elements of snow, reindeer and bells. It’s a quintessential holiday look that never goes out of style and will cue memories of Christmases past.

4. Make it a white Christmas.

Dreaming of a white Christmas? We can’t guarantee flurries, but we can promise the timeless appeal of snow-inspired décor. Sticking to an all-white palette (with hints of sparkle) is on-trend right now, and it takes the guesswork out of mixing and matching. Plus, many white décor items, like cozy ivory throws and milky pillar candles, can be used year-round.

5. Focus on family areas.

The holidays are truly a time to be with family, so think about the areas of your home that draw people near and make those spots the pillars of your décor. This year we’ve been seeing a lot of mantels draped in lush garlands that graze the floor—it’s a nice option if you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace. You can incorporate Christmas mantel décor into other areas of the house, too—think votives and figurines on the coffee or dining room table.

6. Spread holiday cheer with millennial-approved décor.

Give your Christmas and holiday décor a modern spin with millennial-inspired accents. Selecting one focal colour—think pink Christmas decorations—makes the decorating process easy. From a rainbow of bottle brush trees on a mantel, to festive pom pom garlands hung with care down the stairs, this picture-worthy trend is fun for all ages!

7. Create a woodland wonderland.

If you can’t escape to a cozy retreat nestled in the woods, then bring the cozy home. Hang little wooden Christmas decorations and ornaments in your tree, place a decorative bowl of pinecones on your dining table, and toss soft faux fur throws across your ottoman or bed. Your home will feel straight out of a holiday film starring Kate Winslet.

8. Draw inspiration from a tranquil farmhouse.

A condo in the city may be a far cry from the serenity of a rustic farmhouse, but with the right Christmas and holiday décor you can create the magic of a pastoral holiday season no matter your square footage. Layer classic prints, like buffalo check and plaid, into your table linens for Christmas table decorations that are truly farm-to-table.

9. Embrace the décor trend that never goes out of style.

If making sustainable choices isn’t one of your resolutions for 2022, it should be. Start with décor that can be saved and used for years to come, like garlands made from wooden beads, reusable napkins, eco-friendly LED twinkle lights, and of course, reusable gift wrap. For so many reasons (like the environment and your credit card bill, to name a few), it’s a trend we’ll see for years to come.

10. Count down the days.

As the days get darker and chillier, the countdown to Christmas Day is a bright light of excitement. Make the most of each day with an advent calendar filled with treats and treasures. You can buy them readymade to save yourself time, or go the extra mile and personalize a reusable calendar. What’s more, they’re a great way to add a touch of holiday décor to bedrooms or the kitchen, where family members can check for treats each morning!
