Holiday Decorating Trends For 2014

Last year, when decorating for the holidays, I was all about the burlap, the peacock blue, and much more natural elements.  This year there seems to be a trend toward bold color, chains, and feathers, among other fun elements.  


This year its emeral green, hot pink, and all of this: 


FEATHERS


Holiday decorating can be a bit more soft and realistic with the use of lifelike feathers.  They are so versatile and simple to use; just push them into any tabletop display, door wreath, or your xmas tree branches!  You can easily find them in a craft store.


I found this cute DIY indoor feather wreath idea made of paper from blogger Lia Griffith!  Check it out HERE!  Looks real from far away.
 

CHAINS



I have been seeing chains used as holiday decor in homes all over the place!  This Hot Pink Acrylic Chain Trim from Hobby Lobby can be added to tablescapes, stair railing decor, and of course the Xmas tree!




METALLIC DEER



This year metallic is very hot in home decorating, so OF COURSE it finds its way into holiday decorating.  AND the deer, along with its antlers, are also trending.  Add metallic antlers to your mantel this season.   Place a faux deer head on a wall and hang metallic chains from it!  'Tis the seeason to get funky!


West Elm has a bunch of metallic deer related decor including this Papier Mache Deer Head in Gold!

CHALKBOARD 


Even for the holidays, the chalkboard has made it into the ‘holiday decorating’ trend for 2014!  The kids will get excited counting down to the holidays using the board. You can also buy chalkboard ornaments and have family and friends write something sweet, then hang it on your tree! 

These chalkboard ornaments from Grandin Road are perfectly on trend!!

MORE IDEAS AND TRENDS:


Vintage is still popular: 
You can find vintage looking decorations everywhere!  From a fun holiday sign to hang on a wall, to ornaments that look old.

Don’t be afraid to mix these trends together!   
Try filling an antique looking bread bowl from a store like Pottery Barn, with  metallic ornaments.  Place it on your table for an instant holiday feel.

Great color combinations:
Traditional red and green has gone - It's now Emerald and Vibrant Pink!  

As always, I say pour YOUR unique style into your decorating décor.  When shopping for decorations keep this list of trends in mind, but make sure you buy what catches your eye even if it is not 'trending'.
