Home Decorating Ideas for Christmas 2009 from Christmasworld

What is the best 2009 Christmas decor trends to your ideas choice? Did Christmas decorating have been installed into your home year after year? If you want to have the new ideas for decorating your house at Christmas, this is general theme from Christmasworld for Christmas Decor Trends 2009-2010. It is declined in 4 decorating trend ideas; Airy for Spring season, Sweet for Summer season, Comfort for Autumn season and Obsession for Winter season. So feel free to be inspired home decorating ideas theme to decorate at Christmas, New Year’s Day and also Thanksgiving.

Airy is characterized by lightness and transparency. It feels romantic in a modern way. Soft pastel colours, blurred motifs and fluid structures lure the observer into a fairy like fantasy world. Plenty of glass vases, baubles and crystal are a must. The color parameters are created by chalky pastels ranging from cream to pink and pale grey, all combined with lots of white. Transparent, translucent materials are as light as the colors.

Comfort is an evolution of the birch bark, the deer and the natural theme that was popular on the last two years. Comfort plays with contrasts in textures, materials and styles. Make sure to include pieces made with natural materials. Feel free to oppose modern style objects with driftwood. A must are the touches of red or orange to enliven the decor. Comfort is the only trend that is sure to appeal to both genders. I guess that it will be theme used by Boyd Ferguson (re: modern rustic kitchen).

This is by far the most glamourous decor for Christmas. I see Obsession as the next wave of the Hollywood Glamour theme. You mix metallic colors. Quartz pink and mauve lighten up mahogany, aubergine, violet and gold. I am impress with the lilac against the silver and gold. It might be something I try this year. You will need to look for curved lines, ornate objects, luxurious materials and fabrics like velvet and silk to reproduce the Obsession look.

Sweet is the most feminine decor. It is unusual to see pink floral patterns at Christmas. Do not be afraid to use a multicolor palette. This decor feels fresh and girly with a hint of kitsch. The milky palette extends from sand, aqua and turquoise to violet, lime and slate grey. Materials include plastic, varnish and porcelain, tulle and satin ribbons. Surface are over-sugared, candied and glazed. For me, this decor screams more bridal showers and tea parties than Christmas. For that reason, I am not sure about it as a great Christmas theme. On the other end, you will probably reuse most of decorative elements the rest of the year.
