No time to hang up the lights or take out the tinsel? Don’t bother. Understated is in this season. Unadorned greenery, simple rustic touches and carefully curated decorations are replacing the usual baubles and bells.
“We’re seeing a shift from holiday-specific décor to pieces that work together to evoke more of a feeling or spirit of the season,” said Kylee Trunck, a senior staff designer at Havenly, the online design service. “Things like faux fur, rustic wood finishes, metallics, plaids and greenery are less overtly holiday-themed, but they bring a cozy and magical feeling to spaces.”
While glitter and garlands are still popular, she said, “nontraditional is becoming the tradition,” with color combinations like pink and turquoise or black and white used in lieu of red and green. “We’re also seeing a mix of quirky characters like peacocks and llamas in metallic finishes edging out the traditional characters of the season.”
