Christmas is a very traditional holiday. From the pined evergreen tree in every home to the red wool stockings hanging from the fire mantle, few people will stray from this classic look to add bold, new elements. This year, spruce things up in your home with the everso trendy, Contemporary design.
Since Contemporary design is always changing, it is the perfect time to incorporate this design in your home. You can start using a Contemporary style and modify it every year as styles and designs change. Here are three fun ways to switch up your traditional Christmas Decor into a new trendy style. Let’s take a look!
There are several contemporary Christmas tree designs available today. Go beyond traditional green pine, and branch out into some of the more unique and fun designs. Look into some unconventional styles where plastics, orbs, or even solid metals can construct your tree. These styles still replicate the tradition tree in structure and cone shape but give a unique element to the design. Some can be constructed solely of lights, whereas other designs may have no lights at all. Broaden your spectrum of trees this year. You can even install floating shelves on a wall in the triangular shape of a tree. This can be used to store the presents and create the illusion of the tree.
Think Outside the Box
Another fun way idea is to think outside the box. Do not stick to the same color theme of red and green. While still establishing a distinct color theme, use different contemporary colors. Perhaps, using blue and yellow or violet and gold. Creating a uniform but untraditional color scheme is a very contemporary way to style your Christmas decor. Be unique and fun in your design. Allow your color theme to enhance your room and make a bold statement of Christmas while using alternative colors rather than the traditional red and green.
There are other ways than just the ordinary Christmas lights to decorate your home. Try going a unique and different approach. Change light bulbs in your home, get Christmas light fixtures, and add lights in creative ways. You can create a dazzling Christmas spectacle without purchasing any Christmas lights. Have fun and let your creativity flow.
If your heart is set on the traditional Christmas theme, you can add little pieces of contemporary style here and there. You can do as little or as much as you desire. Try to use some of today’s pop culture and modern trends to help enhance your home’s Christmas feel. It may not be a traditional Christmas set up, but it will be a creative and energetic seasonal escape.
