Decorate your home, your way

1. Earthy elegance

This year it's all about bringing nature indoors. Earthy tones like forest green, warm browns, and rustic reds are all the rage. Think wooden ornaments, and hessian stockings, and don’t forget the kids’ painted pine cones from school. For a unique twist, you could incorporate dried native flowers into your table decor or centrepiece. Bring a bit of earthy elegance to your Christmas and echo the beauty of the great outdoors. 

Visit Myer, Adairs or Target and you’ll find a selection of fantastic Christmas decorations.

2. A tranquil Christmas

For a more serene ambience, keep calm and choose the trend of the moment — icy blue. This trend evokes the peacefulness of a winter's night - a perfectly cool vibe for a hot summer’s day. Think blue-on-blue table linen and fresh wine crockery. Silver pairs perfectly with blue hues, so get out Nanna’s silverware and give it a polish - or upgrade your own in time for Christmas!

For homewares and trinkets that bring your icy blue Christmas to life, check out Target or David Jones.

3. Go old school kitsch

It’s time to take inspo from Nanna — you heard right! A trend we love that’s coming back into fashion is kitschy ornaments with a vintage vibe. Whether you’re draping doilies over the table, grabbing a festive gravy jug or a Santa cheese knife, don’t hold back - when it comes to kitsch, more is more. Don’t forget to wear your cringey Christmas jumper!

Check out Myer or Bed, Bath N' Table and bring your old timer Christmas decorations to life.  

4. Golden Glamour

It’s an age-old favourite but we’re seeing gold, gold, gold everywhere — brushed gold, glittering gold and shiny gold! For a touch of sophistication, turn to luxe gold for your festive decorations. Whether they’re dotted around the home or adorning your lush green Christmas tree, accents of gold will elevate and delight. 

Hot tip: Combine different golds in textures like velvet and satin with rich burgundy for a timeless and regally elegant look.

For fabrics and ornaments that do this trend justice, head into Sunshine Plaza and visit David Jones or Bed, Bath N' Table.

5. Sweet as a peach

Whether you call it peach or rose gold — this trend is simply gorgeous! Choose this softer tone for not-quite-pink perfection this Christmas. To make this dreamy aesthetic your own, layer up different shades of peach in your tablecloths, placemats, plates and napkins for a greater depth of colour.

Head to Target for candy-coloured decorations, and Candy Alley for the real-deal chocolates to satisfy your sweet tooth.  

6. Fairy floss fun

Channel your inner child by embracing the colours from everyone’s favourite spun sugar treat — fairy floss! Think soft pinks, baby blues, and pale purples. These hues bring a whimsical and sweet charm to your holiday decor. 

Hot tip: These colours always look fantastic set against a big white tinsel Christmas Tree with twinkling silver lights. 

For beautiful baubles and pastel-coloured tinsel check out Myer, Kmart or Target.  

7. Electric holiday

Finally, for those who love bold and unconventional choices, neon brights are the way to go. Neon pink, green, and yellow can infuse your Christmas decorations with energy and playfulness. Use neon-coloured baubles, pops of white tinsel and neon lights to create a total festive spectacle. 

Typo or Kmart will have everything you need to electrify your Christmas decorations!

Sustainability tip: Consider eco-friendly options like recycled ornaments, LED lights, and natural materials found in nature for your 2023 Christmas decorations.

Well there you have it, our top 7 decoration trends for a creative kind of Christmas. We hope this has inspired you to head into Sunshine Plaza to find all the things you need to decorate your home, your way this festive season.
