Towards the end of 2020, more than ever, I want to add magic and fairy tales to life. Exhale, create a festive atmosphere around you and celebrate the New Year beautifully. This year, New Year’s Eve chores have not bypassed even those who did not pay much attention to them before, including me. Last year, tangerines and a couple of spruce branches bought on the way home from work were our only holiday decorations. Now the saying “as you celebrate the New Year, so you will spend it” no longer seems like a superstition. I want to approach the festive decor responsibly. Just in case.

Colors

Traditionally, the base is a Christmas tree, so it should be given special attention. What decorations and colors should you choose this year? According to the Chinese calendar, 2021 is the year of the white metal bull, which in itself sounds great, almost like an art installation. The preferred colors for a Christmas tree are white and silver. Gold, sparkles, crystals, crystal, shades of champagne can become an addition to them. Muted color details of gray-blue and lavender colors will look original. The patron of the year favors beige and orange, eco-friendly materials, but dislikes red. Of course, if you really want to, then you can add a little red. The main thing is in moderation.

Decor

If everything seems clear with the color scheme, then it’s more difficult. There are so many options for decorations that it is almost impossible to keep the chosen concept in mind and keep yourself in hand so as not to buy up half of the New Year’s market. Let me share a couple of recommendations.

Pay attention to the shape of the Christmas tree: the choice of decor depends on its geometry. If you have a lush Christmas tree of the correct form, then you have a blank canvas in front of you. You can hang beads, garlands, and balls of various shapes, as well as all kinds of branches and pendants. Everything is limited only by your imagination and a single palette — silver-white, as we remember. And, on the contrary, the more heterogeneous and spreading the architecture of the tree, the more minimalistic and neater the decorations should be on it. For example, delicate warm lights without any additions on a live Christmas tree will look much better than all the toys from the mezzanine box on thin artificial spruce branches.

Many of us have Christmas decorations that are especially dear to our hearts — vintage, from childhood, or handmade toys, interesting finds from travels. You want to see such items and keep them in the spotlight, regardless of fashion, trends and strong recommendations of the Chinese calendar. Then create the right environment for them, a background against which these few precious accents will sparkle with all colors. It is important here to leave space between the decorations and not overdo it with the amount of bright details.
