One big trend designers are cozying up to: glass. As Ashley Macuga of Collected Interiors explains, “Glass inherently is a demonstration of effortless elegance. As an art form, it plays with reflection more than any other medium—enhancing and refracting the light produced from Christmas tree lights and warm taper candles, which are mainstays of traditional holiday decor.”
Read on to learn more about the Christmas decor trends in 2023 that’ll inspire you to reimagine the decorations in your attic.
“The transparency of glass provides a weightless contrast to the heaviness of more ornate decor often used to adorn coffee tables and banisters. We also love the delicate shapes, translucent colors, and handmade textures of artfully created glass ornaments…adding touches of magic to anywhere that it is placed,” says Macuga. In addition to your Christmas tree, try placing them in bowls as a centerpieces as seen here.
Brass and Chrome Accents
Bethany Adams of Bethany Adams Interiors embraces the glitz and glam of the holidays with these metallics. “Brass and chrome decor will have staying power beyond the holiday season—simply change up the styling. A spray of holly in a brass vase can easily be swapped out for cherry blossoms come spring,” says Adams.
“The use of color…like blush, which is undoubtedly warm and looks beautiful when combined with the traditional gold, silver, and jeweled tones of the season,” says Macuga. “It’s a stark contrast to the cool, chilly temperatures of the outdoors.”
If your style leans more minimalist, this modern Christmas decor is all about you! Embrace the neutrals in your home. “This year I foresee a more understated use of decor. Less bold ‘green and red’ combos and more muted greenery along with moody neutrals,” says Laura Williams of ATX Interior Design.
“Rich jewel tones: burgundy, teal, emerald, and luxe metals are in this holiday season. Glassware is a great way to embrace the trend. While it feels festive, it’s also an investment you’ll use all winter long,” Adam explains. Your toasts will feel and look twice as chic!
