Top Christmas Décor Trends For 2022

We are fast approaching the most magical time of year, when we can finally celebrate the festive season in full. After two years of muted festivities, we are all hoping for a welcome return to normality this year. Whether you are having a large gathering, or a close Christmas at home with family members, here’s a look at some interior décor trends for 2022.

Traditional colour schemes

It seems that after a turbulent few years filled with change and adverse circumstances, there isn’t much appetite for novelty in Christmas décor. Traditional Christmas colours such as red and gold are going to be more popular than ever for this reason, Your Home Style reports. 

This chimes with the taste for vintage styles and throwback chic which have been popular for the past couple of years. As the world evolves at an ever-increasing pace, and we are confronted with multiple troubling issues such as climate change and conflicts, many people have been seeking comfort in the cosier country cottage aesthetic of past times. 

Finding red and gold Christmas decorations will also be as easy as falling off a yule log, as they are everywhere from Santa hats to baubles, stockings, cushions, throws, bedding, and more. And if you don’t have a big budget this year, it is likely that you already have a few decorations in red and gold stashed away in the loft anyway. 

If you want something new, you could combine the trend for bringing nature indoors with painted gold pine cones, ferns, and twigs, or gold coated wreaths and garlands. Lay foliage across mantlepieces, or hang it from the Christmas tree. Some pops of red will also add warmth and contrast to the green branches.

Sustainable decorations

This year, there is a conscious effort to rein back on the waste associated with the festive season, by focusing on recycled, repurposed, or home-made decorations. Where this is not possible, the other option is to look for products made from sustainably sourced materials, such as wooden items made from locally sourced FSC certified timber. 

If you have kids, you could set them some creative challenges to come up with DIY tree decorations, or even get out the glue and glitter yourself if you have a spare afternoon! Homemade decorations are charming and characterful, and will save you money if you are watching the pennies this year. 

You can always base your creations on existing decorations left over from last year, and give them a makeover with a coat of paint.

A Georgian Christmas

If you are mad about the Regency aesthetic made popular by the hit TV show Bridgerton, then 2022 is definitely your year! It’s all about making your house feel sumptuous and elegant with attention to detail. Embrace the traditional reds, golds, and greens of the season with touches of tartan and long tapered candles for the dinner table.

This fits in well with the ‘pearlcore’ trend, which according to Etsy, is popular this year. House Beautiful reports that there has been a 44% increase in searches for shoes and bags with pearl detailing, as well as an increased interest in single string pearl necklaces, and pearl drop earrings. 

It is expected that this trend will be continued into the Christmas period with pearl embellished decorations for the tree and the table. Complete the look with luxurious fabrics such as cashmere throws and blankets draped over a leather armchair, and layers of chunky knits. 

Woody scents such as amber, musk, and patchouli will also help to create the right ambience. 

The Great Gatsby aesthetic

For some, the return to normality will be celebrated in style by referencing the Roaring Twenties. This harks back a century, to the 1920’s when the world was enjoying an economic boom, and there was a spirit of optimism and decadence in the air, as the economy bounced back from World War One. 

If you love the Art Deco look, then this might be the Christmas trend for you. It’s opulent and slightly OOT, with lavish gold and silver decorations, pearl strings around the tree, and liberal use of fairy lights. 

The Scandi style Christmas

For those of you who are still a big fan of understated Scandi style, take joy! It is still a fashionable look for the festive season. If bling is not you thing, the restrained colour schemes of white with a touch of silver and icy blue will suit you. Set it off will neutral earth tones, and bring the hygge in with a roaring log fire.
