Tis the season to start decorating for the holidays. This year, why not think outside the box when it comes to your décor. While traditional red and green are timeless and elegant, consider choosing a palette that’s fresh and fun. Our Creative Director Broc Clark has identified three important holiday trends for 2018, each with its own distinct style and twist. First up is Starry Night. This look is inspired by the rich colors and drama of the Van Gogh painting, setting a tone that celebrates a calm winter’s night. Here are its signature elements:
Navy, Gold and Pink
Three important colors for Starry Night are navy, gold and pink. Navy and gold combine to bring the look and feel of an evening sky to your home. Pink touches provide a playful twist and a rosy glow. Imagine decorating your tree in navy, gold and pink ornaments. The combination will feel quite refined.
The important metal of this palette is gold. Look for places to spread its richness. Gold pillows and frames would set your rooms aglow. Use gold silverware, chargers and candlesticks at dining room table settings. And decorate bannisters and chandeliers by embellishing them with gold garland.
While Starry Night features elegant colors and finishes, rustic touches keeps things grounded and fun. Look for textures plucked from nature as well as shapes and accents that feel like they belong in the woods. This sweet Santa Gnome, for example, is sure to make you smile.
The elegant colors of Starry Night are complemented by rich textures, especially faux fur. Drape a warm minky throw on the arm of your sofa, or swap out the toss pillows on your chair or bed with some covered in faux fur.
Finally, add the feel of the forest to your holiday setting with woodland animal inspired accents. Add a small trinket or statue to a tabletop, or look for animal shapes on pillows, such as this sequined velvet variety. The sparkle will catch the light and make your room feel like an enchanted forest.
