Holiday décor trends emerge for homes, displays
A variety of holiday décor trends have emerged for the 2022 season, including maximal mantel displays, the use of non-traditional colors and playing with proportions.
From nostalgic and playful to opulent and gilded, an eye-catching holiday display is key to drawing people in. Elle Decor named 85 trends and ideas that will elevate holiday showcases and home décor this year. Here are five takeaways to inspire a magical display.
Supersize berry picks and Poinsettia clips to create a Christmas display that is heavy on the florals. For a further refreshed look, opt for a garland or arrangement created with non-traditional blooms.
Redefined color palette
An unexpected color scheme can prove just as festive as the classic reds and greens. Consider monochrome blush for a feminine look; yellows and oranges for a refreshing citrus palette; or rainbow for a playful, nostalgic showcase.
Maximalism is trending this year. Make the most of empty spaces and corners — be it a mantel, sideboard or even a radiator, as Elle Decor suggests — by adding a garland, string lights or other pieces of holiday décor.
Gatherings with loved ones are at the heart of the season. Holiday-themed dishware, winter floral arrangements and gilded candle holders bring warmth and festivity to the table.
Take a thoughtful approach to holiday decorating this year by making the most of leftover materials. Wallpaper makes for beautiful, high-quality giftwrapping. Meanwhile, leftover fabric scraps and other supplies can be used to create holiday décor such as wreaths.
