Creating a festive feel is integral to merry celebrations, and today's hostess doesn't skip a beat. Cindy Jardim, Style and Trends Director at Lowe's Canada shares two holiday trend directions.

“Holiday décor is a reflection of the home owner's taste and style,” says Jardim. “This season we're going to see a lot of red but it's going to be presented in two distinctly different ways. One look is more classic with gold accents, while the other is more rustic, incorporating elements of nature.”

Traditional Warmth

For those who enjoy the nostalgia of the holidays, Jardim suggests a modern continuation of a classic look to bring family traditions to life for a new generation. The two key colours to do this with are dark red and rich gold. When it comes to tree ornaments, add classic glamour by incorporating a variety of patterns and finishes in sparkling golds and reds topped with a traditional gold star to complete the look.

The Rustic Home

This season, many Canadians will want to bring the outdoors in. Red is the core colour of this look, but it comes across in festive tartans and berry accents. Ornaments should represent nature – forest animals, pinecones and frosted balls in red, green, and snow white. Kids will love ornaments that look like handmade animal figures such as owls and foxes. Continue the rustic look with Christmas stockings and tree skirts with plaid with faux fur trim.

The versatile twleve-foot colour changing lit tree features lights that change colour from warm white, multicolour, and changes colour at the touch of a foot switch. With one tree to compliment your décor preference, you can easily tie any look together.
