Every year clear colour trends emerge in Christmas decorating. Trend forecasters inform these decisions just as in the fashion and interiors world.
This year Pantone selected two colours to represent 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. These pastel shades of pink and blue were very evident at Christmas World in Frankfurt. Often combined with brown and silver accents for a tougher more modern edge.
Another strong theme this year was ‘natural’ focusing on woodland scenes, foliage, and floristry. Look out for copper, brass and pewter accent colours. Altogether a more rustic interpretation of nature than the clean, minimal Scandi look of previous years.
