You spent a lot of time and effort designing your custom home, and now the holidays have arrived! Show off your beautiful, luxury custom home in the best way possible; check out the top holiday decorating trends of 2018 for ways to spruce up your custom home this season:

Tartan Accents

This year’s trends hearken back to a classic, simpler era of holiday celebrating. Tartan is popping up everywhere, from bedding to throw pillows to stockings. The traditional Scottish plaid adds a bright splash of red and green wherever you incorporate it. Consider sprucing up the guest bedroom with tartan shams, or hang a soft tartan flannel off the arm of your sofa for an easy, tasteful splash of holiday color.

Luxury Layers

Simple, minimalist decorating is in this holiday season, but that doesn’t mean holiday decorating has to be boring. Add in luxury layers like soft, hand-knit throws, fur blankets, and natural wool textiles to bring elegance to any room. Pair with small, white lights for a holiday look that’s not gaudy or overbearing.

Natural Neutrals

This year is all about naturals and neutrals. Glittery and bright decor has been the norm for a while, but this year decorators are going back to the basics with neutral colors that complement the season’s natural whites, greens, and warm brown tones. For a touch of holiday pageantry, add in soft gold and silver ornaments for a look that feels classic, modern, and understated.

Fresh, Live Accents

With the natural decorating trend comes fresh accents that bring a touch of life to your home’s holiday style. Real pine boughs, paperwhites, and sprigs of holly are classic decorating plants that freshen up any room. Make them modern by adding in a touch of citrus. Pair the pine garland on your mantle with whole oranges and lemons for holiday cheer that smells as good as it looks!

Dramatic Dinner Tables

While the majority of 2018’s holiday trends favor minimal, natural decorations, this year’s dinner table is the place to pull out all the stops. Dramatic dinner tables are in, so get out those metallic chargers, and opt for an oversized centerpiece. Golds, greens, and whites are still the color of this season, but add in natural-feeling splashes of red with colored burlap or real holly berries.
