For those who want to embrace the trend, there are several ways you can put your personal stamp on a pineapple.  You could go all out by decorating an actual tree in the style of a pineapple (it would certainly be the only centrepiece you’ll need in your living room this Christmas!)

Or if like us, you may want to work on a smaller, more manageable scale, you can take a pineapple and attach baubles to it or entwine fairy lights or tinsel around it.  It would certainly be a showstopper for the Christmas table.

Textured white

Christmas is white – the colour of snow, purity and simplicity.  It’s magic touch brings a bright elegant touch to any room and is perfect for a minimalistic style.

White ornaments pop against the lush greenery of a Christmas tree.  Keep your decorating palette to snowy hues, making sure that baubles are different textures to create some interest and don’t forget the glistening white fairy lights.

Moving on from the tree, why not make a feature window with white decorations?  Hanging star ornaments, baubles, white faux fur and feathers combine with little lanterns and twinkling tealights to create a winter wonderland.

Geometric chic

If it’s geometrically cut like a gemstone, then it’s hot and trendy this Christmas!  Eye catching “Geo style” takes inspiration from the geometric shapes featured in modernism and modern art.  Sculptural elements, architectural features and stylish combinations are joined together to create this powerful Christmas decoration look.

Consider angular shapes over spherical for a fresh take on Christmas ornaments.  We love these wire-formed silhouettes which lend a modern look to a Christmas tree.

Geometrically cut, these lanterns captivate with their clean lines and striking design. Simplicity is key here – the candle reflections will shimmer beautifully in the light of the flame.

Colour pop

Bold and bright Christmas decorations, neon colours and retro tinsel star in this theme, alongside glitter coated baubles and opulent ornaments.  Vibrant turquoise and lilac will add an indulgent twist to the classic festive combination of crimson and green.  Oranges and neon pinks as well as lime greens will also help create the won factor this Christmas.

The colour pop Christmas theme suits a modern room with a clean and simple back-drop.  For the tree opt for lots of bright jewel colours and where possible, stick to similar sized baubles as varying sizes may look too busy – even for this loud trend.

Bright, multi colour, paper craft ornaments and bauble garlands don’t have to be confined to the tree.  This innovative way of working them onto the wall spreads the Christmas spirit around the room and could add a cheerful pop of colour to any forgotten corner.

Light fantastic

Nothing says Christmas more than statement lights.  Whether you choose colourful, craft-inspired designs made from materials like felt and wood or the more exquisite, delicate string designs, your lights should definitely take centre stage this season.

Fairy lights are a must-have but don’t just use them on your Christmas tree, some artfully placed strings across the mantelpiece, placed in jars or adorning a festive star decoration are a cool way to add instant atmosphere.

Add another dimension to your Christmas lighting by hanging an installations with a yuletide spin along a hallway.  Think stars, pine cones and an intricate weave of lights suspended along the ceiling to transform your space into a stylish, magical, Christmas grotto.
