The holiday season is fast approaching and it's a great opportunity to transform your space into a fun and creative environment for yourself, your friends and family and perhaps your clients (if you own a storefront) to enjoy. Earlier this year, Christmasworld, an annual trade show in Frankfurt, Germany, said to be "the world’s leading trade fair for festive decorations" presents the trends and innovations for all festivities of the year, ranging from Christmas, New Year and St. Valentine’s Day to Easter, summer parties and Halloween.
The 2009 Christmas decoration trends were developed by the style agency bora.herke and presented at the fair. They presented four main themes :
:: OBSESSION | Feminine elegance meets luxurious opulence
:: SWEET | Spontaneity, freshness and a happy-go-lucky nature
:: AIRY | A style that radiates modernity and lightness
:: COMFORT | The creative tension between the modern and the traditional.
Over the course of the next couple weeks, I will be proposing various ideas on how to decorate your space for the holidays based on these themes for your table settings, your living room, guest bedroom, party room, gifts, etc. If there's anything in particular you'd like to see, don't hesitate to contact me by email or post a comment.
