Moodboard Monday: Christmas Decorations

Welcome to another Moodboard Monday! I’m starting to feel all festive (yes, already) and have been thinking of how I’d like the house to look over Christmas this year. As I’ve been so much more in touch with home interiors this year, I’ve been following the trends for Christmas decorations too.

I wrote a little while ago about this Prelit Twig Tree and I’m still lusting after one for the Living Room, so much so that I decided to build this week’s Moodboard around modern and contemporary Christmas decorations. And this is what I’ve come up with:

Contemporary Christmas Decorations

Modern Christmas decorationsAll of the items in this Moodboard are taken from the John Lewis Winterland Christmas theme which I am totally in love with this season. It’s full of texture with lots of fur, feathers and plush fabrics. It’s full of rich colours mixed with sparkling, icy baubles. It reminds me of crisp, frosty winter days and spending the evenings in front of log fires wrapped up in warm blankets, drinking hot chocolate. It’s rustic with a modern twist.

I would really like to recreate this look for my Christmas tree and decorations this year and I think with just a few key purchases I could update the current decorations box to fit this theme. Well that’s what I’ll tell everyone anyway!

What do you think? Could this be your ideal Christmas decorations theme this year?

And now bloggers, it’s over to you. The Moodboard Monday linky is now open. You can either follow the theme here and create your own Christmas Decorations board, or create something of your own. Pop over to LISH Concepts and take a peek at Mummylish’s board for more inspiration.

    Ooh that’s my tree I think, but I’ve gone for a slightly larger one. I’m going to try and fit my traditional ornaments into my scheme, but be a little more minimal. Love the knitted stags head, I would love one of those!
