Over the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed that lots of people have started to put their Christmas decorations up earlier than they usually would. Even @TheEconomist has picked up on this: “Have you already put the tree up? To counter the seasonal gloom, many households are getting their Christmas decorations up early…”
With 2020 being such a troubled year for so many of us, having a ‘bleak midwinter’ on top would be the worst possible way to end the year. And that’s what’s causing so many people across the globe to deck the halls so much earlier than they usually do. With Christmas usually over and done with before you can even blink, it is a welcome change to spend some time and effort over your decorations. And with so much extra time on our hands as none of us are socialising as much as we usually do, you can make your home look extra festive this Christmas.
Read on for our top tips on how to transform your home into a holiday haven in December 2020.
2021’s home furnishing trends are all about taking inspiration from nature. But there’s no reason why you shouldn’t get ahead of the trend by decorating your house for Christmas 2020 with that theme in mind.
Of course, taking inspiration from nature is what Solino does best. Our linen is expertly and lovingly made by skilled craftsmen out of natural fabrics. Linen is one of the world’s oldest known fabrics and is widely appreciated for its versatility, breathability and sustainability. Why not put it at the centre of your Christmas table settings?
Our range of table linens, particularly our festive collection of placemats, dinner napkins and table runners, are the ideal base on which to build your table decorations. The Festive Edge collection of placemats, table runner and dinner napkins will also look heavenly in a home this holiday season. They are ideal for anyone with a more neutral, light and bright colour scheme to their interior design choices.
After you have arranged your table linen on the table, then get ready to welcome nature to the table by arranging all of your winter foliage and candles on your table. With the home furnishings trend for 2021 themed around taking inspiration from nature, get your boots on and start foraging for some beautiful branches and foliage to create your centrepieces.
After that, treat yourself by buying a Christmas present for you. Invest in some Christmas glassware and a Christmas dinner service. They’ll be the highlight of your Christmas table decorations and will be something that you’ll use at every special occasion, not just at Christmas. Gold and silver sparkles go perfectly with everyone’s Christmas decorations.
The final Christmas decorating trend to be mindful of when you are decking the halls is “the homespun look”. Get artsy, and crafty for that matter, and make your Christmas decorations for your home and Christmas table too. It’s also a brilliant way to entertain children. Make bunting with dried orange slices and pinecones, paper streamers, paper snowflakes - let your creativity be your guide.
