It’s be­gin­ning to look a lot like Christ­mas, and with many house­holds putting up their tree this week­end, Christ­mas Dec­o­ra­tions Bris­bane has shared a few of their fes­tive tips.

LIGHT IT UP

There are slim trees, Nordic trees, big trees, out­door trees, tiny trees, even glit­ter cone trees. And there is a whole range of lights de­pend­ing on your theme. There are LED twin­kling lights, Nordic LED lights with white cord, cur­tains of lights per­fect for the tree or win­dow, fes­toon light­ing for the en­ter­tain­ing area, and cop­per wire lights that can make any­thing sparkle.

TRA­DI­TIONAL IS AL­WAYS IN STYLE

One of the firm’s favourite trends is red and green, en­cour­aged by the essence of na­ture. Think ever­greens, flow­ers, red berries and nat­u­ral woods blended to­gether to cre­ate beau­ti­ful dec­o­ra­tions for your home, tree and ta­ble set­tings.

MONO­CHROME YULE­TIDE

Mono­chrome is set to be a huge trend in Christ­mas dec­o­rat­ing this year. Clas­sic black and white el­e­ments con­vey an el­e­gant and so­phis­ti­cated tone. Com­plete the look with black, white and sil­ver dec­o­ra­tions or throw in a splash of colour to add a sense of Christ­mas fun and vi­brancy to the pal­ette.

COLOUR CRAZY

Think pops of un­ex­pected colours like strik­ing blues, an­i­mated fuch­sia, hot pinks and sun­shine yel­low with slap­pings of glit­ter to sparkle and fill your home with all the glitz and glam­our of a colour crazy Christ­mas. And don’t be afraid to use con­trast­ing pat­terns. Christ­mas is when all dec­o­rat­ing styles are ac­cept­able. Have fun with it.
