Here’s a look at some holiday decor trends for 2014.
Holiday Decor Trend #1: Install Decor Before Thanksgiving
Like it or not, the holidays seem to be starting earlier each year. More families want their home dressed up, inside and out, before Thanksgiving so the festivities can kick in as soon as the leftover turkey is tucked in the fridge.
Many families have “lighting ceremonies” on Thanksgiving night to switch on the lights, oooh and aah and kick off the holiday season. Get everything in place early and all you have to do is bask in the glow.
Holiday Decor Trend #2: Light Up Your Indoor Entryway
Decorating the foyer and entry staircase railings with lights, greenery and decorations welcomes you with holiday spirit every time you come home and provides a lovely first impression for your guests.
Holiday Decor Trend #3: Multicolor Lights
Colorful lights add a spark of fun and capture the childhood wonder of the holidays.
Holiday Decor Trend #4: Mixing Holiday Traditions
These days, families are often a wonderful blend of religions, backgrounds and traditions. Your holiday decor should celebrate the diversity. Don’t be afraid to combine a Christmas tree in the picture window with a menorah on the mantel with the bountiful fruit and vegetable displays of Kwanzaa.
Mixing these different holiday traditions can be done tastefully, and it will make everyone in the family feel celebrated.
Holiday Decor Trend #5: Advances In Lighting
Energy-efficient LED lights continue to replace incandescent lights on the holiday scene. LEDs are now available in warmer tones to mimic the glow of traditional incandescent bulbs.
One of the newest advancements in LED lighting is the color changing RGB bulb. Each individual bulb has the ability to change into many different hues at a gentle pace, creating a gorgeous light show inside and captivating passersby.
Holiday Decor Trend #6: Technology Rules
Sometimes, a simple wreath and a few strands of lights just doesn’t express a family’s passion for the holidays. It takes thousands of synchronized lights, a computerized show with music and animated characters beckoning from the front lawn.
The possibilities would dazzle even Santa.
