Trend Alert: Moody Holiday Decor

November 21, 2022

It’s that time of year! Our heads are spinning with visions of sugar plums and all things holiday decor.  This year, we have our eyes on one particular trend: moody, earthy, darker, rich holiday and christmas decor.

The classic bright red and green colors of the holiday are being exchanged for plums, browns, dark rust, navys, deep greens and even black. There is something about these colors paired with the traditional evergreen fir that creates a beautiful richness and allure to Christmas decor.  This stunning aesthetic adds to much depth to the typical holiday hues, and we are HERE FOR IT! Today we’re gathering together some inspiring images and products to help you achieve this look in your own home.

Black Ribbons and Garlands

Tying garlands, wreaths and even your gifts with a darker, unexpected color…how about black ribbon!?  Don’t knock it until you see it. Beautiful!

In fact, we have been seeing these darker, moody colors in various forms of Christmas adornment. From platters, gift wrapping paper, candles, stockings, and even nutcrackers.

Velvet and Glass Ornaments

Look for darker toned velvet and glass ornaments this year. Don’t shy away from mixing both textures to your tree for a sophisticated feel!

A Dark Dinner Party

You can carry the moody vibe to the table with black table cloths or paper, a simple black linen napkin, and some additional earthy touches. I love the simplicity of a monochromatic table setting with some pops of natural greenery!
