The Christmas decorations are made with a lot of detail and should balance out the reference types you choose. There are many types of decoration possible: from the most traditional and symbolic to the very fun and deconstructed versions for the hottest time of the year.
Before getting involved in all of the decorations you see, think about a few details in order to have a harmonious decoration, consistent and with an end result that can truly leave anyone infected with that Christmas joy.
The decorated Christmas tree includes much more than hanging ornaments, but the selection of colors, shapes, sizes and distribution of the elements in a harmonious way.
To help you with this task of decorating everything, we have put together some general tips for you to make your decorated Christmas tree even more beautiful:
- Size : Think about the type of space available and the space you want your tree to occupy. It is important that the size of the tree is chosen according to the environment. The smaller models combine more with small spaces or on furniture, while the traditional large Christmas trees deserve all the space and highlight in the area. The size of the decorations should also be proportional to the size of the Christmas tree, so this is the first step in creating a successful decor.
- Selection of ornaments : The decorations of a Christmas tree know no limits in terms of colors and formats. In addition to the traditional balls, bows, and stars, you can use candies, musical instruments, garlands, blinkers, pom-poms, and anything else your imagination needs. You can make a mix of references or even a themed decoration for your tree.
- Colors : Think about the color palette and effects you want to create through your interior. You can choose decorations that will give your Christmas tree a more elegant look, such as the more minimalist ones, or the shades of blue to give it a cooler touch or to relate to the sea. The traditional colors appear mainly in the green of the tree and also in the red of the ornaments. The decor can be trendier and more glamorous, with more cheerful colors like lavender, lavender and pink. Do not forget about trends such as colorful decorations, color gradients and harmonizing with the decoration of the environment.
- When to Gather : When you’re doing all the details, an interesting tip is to always keep triangles in mind so it’s easier to balance everything out and keep the decoration more spread out. Start with the blinker and when you have bows and balls position them so that the bows are over the balls. After that, you can start adding the smaller decorations.
