The festive season signals a lot more than Santa, it also paves the way for a special creative licence when it comes to our homes. There are those who opt for the National Lampoon’s style Christmas lights, ensuring their house is seen from space, and those who go for the ultimate in pared back style even forgoing the Christmas tree. Here at The LuxPad we think the key to Christmas interior style is investing in a trend that sits somewhere between these two polar opposites.
Bringing a contemporary twist to the bleak monochrome Christmas palette of yesteryear is the Glacier Christmas interior trend. Graphic shapes, simplistic touches and monochrome tones introduce a chic winter appearance with this arctic inspired look. Natural materials are key, and will help to create a contemporary and stylish scene perfect for hosting a get-together with friends to celebrate the festive season.
Festive style is mainly seen in the living room, this is thanks to the Christmas tree and it being the general space for family gatherings. Your tree really should be the focal point, so it can be easier to work on this first and then work your way out around the room. For the Glacier Christmas Interior Trend white, silver and black are the mainstays of your palette. Since this is a relatively monochrome look it’s easy to add interest by using texture, think gloss or mirror finishes across decorations to add the right amount of Christmas sparkle.
Stylish decorations can be used around the home, not just for the Christmas tree, look to add key festive pieces across mantle pieces and shelves. Thanks to the simplicity of the color palette you can be bold with patterns, and this works especially well across soft furnishings. Cushions and throws can clash patterns in black and white to bring alive the Glacier Christmas trend.
The dining table is often the star of the show when it comes to Christmas interior style, and it should follow suit from the rest of your festive decor. Set the table in contemporary style with modern designs, look to geometric patterns across your tableware. In keeping with the Glacier look keep the table in black and white, and add festive details from ribbons to tree decorations to create the perfect stylish seasonal setting.
Candles will always add ambience to the home and never more so than at Christmas. Elegant glass candleholders will bring the Glacier look together, look for interesting seasonal shapes such as stars or designs with festive slogans. Don’t forget about home fragrance, this is integral for the perfect festive interior and will add the perfect seasonal ambience.
The front of your house can always benefit from a dusting of festive style, and in keeping with the Glacier look it can work best if kept simple. Think a contemporary wreathe on your front door and perhaps a few carefully placed minimalist trees on the front step, or perhaps just a few lights in the window to give a festive glow to the outside.
