Decorative Trends for the Holiday Season

As the holiday season approaches and the inevitable frenzy begins to stir, we at Bespoke would like to share our latest ideas and inspiration for this year's table settings and decor. While nostalgia is as interchangeable to the season as the steady stream of joyful music or ubiquitous mall Santas, there are a few unique trends emerging from the traditional celebratory decorations.

A darker tone seen throughout fashion and decor takes on a Dutch Master aesthetic abundant with deep colors, rich velvet and theatrical bouquets of texture and contrast. This styling trend will continue to influence the seasonal market as home furnishings add pewter and bronze finishes, opulent fabrics and an overall sophisticated luxury. For the modern minimalist, gold is updated with graphic patterns, all-over application and dipped designs. Evolving from the artisanal trend that has populated current home and furniture designs, a handmade and crafted aesthetic featuring DIY activities and personalization reaches across all generations. Add dimension to packaging with cross-stitched hangtags or place single branches in large glass vases as tree alternatives.
