What to consider when shopping for Christmas decorations

1. Choose what makes you happy
"We believe that art trends are diverse and can vary widely from country to country. What’s important is to explore and appreciate what resonates with you personally, whether it aligns with a current trend or not," says Annica Wallin, the executive creative director at Desenio. "Decorate in a way that speaks to you."

2. Think about the style you want to achieve
Are you going for a bold, festive look, or something more natural? Will you add modern touches, or opt for something more rustic? Choose various items that are in line with the overall aesthetic you're trying to achieve. Incorporating different textures such as twine, and burlap is another way to add interest.

3. Choose colors wisely
Though red and green are of course the main staples for a traditional look, Wallin suggests playing with two to three key colors as a theme, even if they're different shades of the same hue. "When choosing these colors, it’s good to consider the color scheme of the room first," she adds. "Select shades that harmonize with your wall color, furniture, and accessories."

4. Think long-term
"By incorporating decor with longevity, you'll save time, space, and money, Jennifer Verruto, Founder and CEO of Blythe Interiors previously told us. "Invest in decor that isn't just for a specific holiday, but rather that can last you from fall through winter and even into the new year."

5. Keep things neat 
Remember, not every single square inch of your scheme needs to be filled with decor. It's OK to say no to a few things here and there, especially when styling a small space.

"Try not to pack every surface with décor," Jennifer Verruto, Founder and CEO of Blythe Interiors, previously recommended. "Overcrowding with holiday items can look cluttered and overwhelming. Less is more and editing is key!"
