How to decorate a house for the New Year: 8 ideas from Italian designers

It’s already December and it’s time to start decorating your home for the New Year holidays.
Creating the perfect Christmas decor for your home is not only fun, but also an opportunity to enjoy the festive mood with your loved ones throughout the season.

Today our Italian designers shared their ideas on how to decorate the house for the upcoming winter holidays and make it festive.

1. Add festivity with the help of bold accents

If you have a light color scheme in your home, it’s easy to create the perfect Christmas decor.
Pick cherry red decorations and place them throughout your home as accents.
These can be Christmas tree balls, decor items, pillows, garlands, etc. You can even tie gifts with a red ribbon.
By adding a Christmas tree, you get the perfect New Year’s interior. And you don’t need to remodel the entire room to do this!

2. Decorate your home starting from the ceiling

Add larger decorations to your interior by alternating and varying heights. Drape the garland over the top and sides of the window frame. Hang eye-catching decorations on the ceiling.

You can do it yourself and hang a composition of pine cones and dried oranges, as well as hanging paper decorations that can be neatly attached without damage using tape or special hooks.
This decor will look perfect in any room in your home!

3. There is never too much green

If you love green color, our designers advise to make your design in green color: it reminds of nature, makes us more calm and creative. Besides, it is a popular shade of this season.
In the green room, you can also add green decor for the upcoming holidays. Match baubles, decor elements and packaging to the shades that are already in the room.

Metallic and white work well with green for a modern look, but avoid adding red things unless you want to go in a more traditional direction.

4. Combine white tones in the house with a white Christmas tree

A white tree and a muted Christmas color scheme are one of the main trends this season.

Ideally, put a white Christmas tree in a white room and add light pastel shades as decorations. This color combination is very pleasing to the eye. You and your guests will definitely like this interior for the Christmas and New Year.

5. Accentuate the rustic style

In more rustic interiors, the Christmas decor should accentuate this theme.

More lights and a woven tree skirt are all you need to bring out the tree’s natural beauty and add festive sparkle. If you want to add embellishments, hang glass balls in different sizes in classic shades like red, blue, green or even transparent balls to keep the decor elegant.

6. Go for an all-white Christmas decor

A completely white room can become a blank canvas where you can add absolutely any decoration. Just add color or keep the space monotonous and natural.

Take ivy cuttings from your garden and wrap them around mirrors, shelves, and above paintings. Add a festive atmosphere with scented candles.

To keep white furniture and accents from looking flat, spice up this trend with interesting textures like sequins or textiles, or nature-inspired items like artificial flowers and trees.

Soft textiles such as throws and pillows can also help create a cozy feeling in the room. Create a true winter wonderland by adding a tall fir tree covered in white ornaments or fake snow.

7. Decorate the chest of drawers for the New Year

If you have an elegant chest of drawers, it can serve as an excellent buffet for serving drinks, as well as an ideal place to store all kinds of utensils. Make sure you have a lamp or candles to create a cozy atmosphere.

If you have vibrant colors in your interior, such as an aquamarine armchair or purple rug, add colored vases or decorations to echo the tones and create a harmonious color combination.

8. Choose neutral decorative elements

Stay true to your neutral room style and add similar decorations, sheer or glitter. Such spectacular large baubles will become a big trend in future seasons.
To give the room a natural chic, add more greenery: put a spruce on the floor, place indoor plants on the shelves.
