First on the list of to-dos is the addition of black to Holiday palettes, especially traditional red-and-green color schemes. In fact, whether it is teamed with white, color or metallic, black is rapidly becoming an absolute classic for Christmas. That’s why The Trend Curve offers this advice: Don’t take another step into 21st Century Holiday décor without it!
Meanwhile, brown is gathering momentum for the Holidays. From paper-bag types to values that go darker and richer, brown will be indispensable in the coming two years. It will be crucial for capturing everything from the heartwarming, homemade looks found in our Simple Gifts trend to the upscale elegance of a look we call Haute Holiday.
Also a factor for Christmas future is the growing strength of pink. Girls have always loved pink for everyday décor, so it should come as no surprise that pink is moving into the Seasonal realm, too. Soft-pink sprites and fairies put a feminine spin on winter scenes in Frosty Forest. Then, watch pink expand into brighter and bolder shades that are perfect for our Christmas In Bloom and Holiday Graphics trends.
As you might expect, Holiday color in the coming two years will be expanded by the most original Holiday trends. Among our other groundbreaking looks is a playful safari trend we’re calling Wild Celebration. Then, moving from wildlife to the Wild West, our Sheriff Santa trend welcomes everything from cacti to cowhide-covered pillows to the list of Christmas décor possibilities.
