Decorative Christmas Tree Trends 2018

The top Christmas tree decorative trends to use in 2018

Are you looking for something a little different this year? Are you bored of the same annual Christmas tree decorations? Decorated Christmas trees (with delivery in London!) are one of our specialities, along with envisioning a stunning array of interior and home decor ideas. As an early gift, we have put together a guide of this year’s most sought-after Christmas tree colour schemes.

“Christmas decorations can be a great way to brighten up your office for the holiday season. It’s remarkable how much something as simple as a Christmas tree can boost staff moral.” – David Pagotto – Founder and Managing Director of SIXGUN

Rainbow Christmas tree

The Rainbow Christmas Tree

One of the most talked about colour schemes of 2018 is the Rainbow Christmas tree. Taking a step away from the more traditional designs, the rainbow tree will really brighten up any room that it’s  in. This is thanks to the fact that each section of the tree is a different colour of the rainbow! John Lewis revealed that the Rainbow tree will be the biggest trend of 2018 and have rolled out decorations and bauble collections to match.

The Classic Christmas Tree

In absolute contrast, another trend that will be in this year is the traditional ever-green Christmas tree with simple decorative lights. The lights can of course be experimented with, but warm white is always a favourite and a safe option. These lights will show off the rich greens of the tree and will add warmth to the surrounding area. Other options are the cool white lights that offer crisper icier atmosphere. Conversely coloured or multi-coloured lights will offer a totally different ambiance.

“To change up this classic design, lights could be the only source of decoration, yet you could adopt the rainbow theme, displayed solely in the lighting.” – WOW Event Hire

Evergreen Woodland

Another classic tree design is the Evergreen Woodland. This tree makes the most of the woodland colours, mixing the rich greens with warm browns and reds. This design will keep this year’s tree looking natural, as it would still look right at home in the ever-green pine wood forest that it came from. Great Christmas decorations to match include pine cones, acorns and anything wooden. A great activity for children leading up to Christmas would be adding glitter and subtle decoration to natural items such as the acorns and pine cones.

“At the end of the day, nothing beats the natural tonalities of greens in the home. Pine trees are a classic option to create that festive vibe without going over the top. Try making your own garlands or wreaths made from the plants you’ve collected for a true homemade feel.” – Dalina, Interior SecretsEvergreen Woodland Christmas tree

The Blue Christmas   

As shown in this Elle Decor article, blue is in! The Blue Christmas tree is in fact extremely versatile and can create numerous Christmas moods. As the image at the end of the link shows, this scheme can range from an icy blue option, which is an updated more colourful version of the ice white Christmas tree, to a rich royal blue or a crisp sapphire. This option brings a pop of colour to the home but doesn’t overdo it.

The Autumnal Amber

Taking inspiration from the preceding season, the Autumnal Amber Christmas tree will warm up any room. Its fiery flare will come from an abundance of different copper shades. Leading on from the success of the rose gold option that was a 2017 favourite, this warm earthy addition is set to be a 2018 must have. This design again looks great with spiced up autumn leaves, acorns, pine cones, wreaths and wooden decorations.

The Thoughtful (Environmental) Tree

Petria Leggo from Coco Rose Interiors has suggested thinking green. “Artificial Christmas trees use a lot of plastic and involve a long production and shipping process, taking ten to twenty years of use to reclaim the carbon footprint! Real potted trees are a great alternative because you can replant them in your garden or keep potted and re-use the following year.”

Reusable wrapping is also a great option. “Use re-usable boxes, natural paper, repurposed fabrics or newspapers instead of wrapping paper. This will help reduce the approximately 50,000 trees is used each year to wrap our gifts”

The Scent Of Success

“You can’t beat the smell of a real tree at Christmas, there’s no scented candle that comes close. The fact that real trees are usually asymmetrical gives the room a little more character and individuality.” – NGI Design
