It is officially time to have the talk. You know I love to discuss the trends and how much I do not buy into them. I am what you might call anti-trend. My reasoning? It is a marketing ploy to make us all think that we constantly need something new to make us feel better about our lives and so that we will all fit in. I am very much anti-fit-in.
I wholeheartedly believe in flying your freak flag! I think that a lot of time was put into making each of us unique human beings and we completely rebel against that and work our butts off to “fit in” as if that will fulfill us. But enough about my thoughts on trends. LOL
Let’s talk about the trends that I saw at this Christmas Market in January 2023. (Yes, it really does come out in January). I have had a great deal of time to think about which of these trends might actually be the one that everyone will buy into this year and without further rambling, I will introduce you to the first trend of 2023.
One trend that is sure to peak most people’s interest is the huge push in blue. Everything from traditional blue and white chinoiserie, to slate blue and pewters, or turquoise and gold, there really was not a shortage of blue in any showroom at the 2023 Christmas Markets. I look for this one to be huge. The reason I feel this will be big is that it is an easy transition from every day decor to Christmas with this colorway. Blue is also a color that is peaceful, tranquil, and serene. This is often what many say that they want for Christmas.
I can see this trend used in many different ways. Personally, I like the teal/turquoise blue paired with a rich tomato red and vibrant yellow-green, that would keep the tradition of the red/green combo but pairing it with the teal blue would give it a touch of something unexpected. This is a trend that I bought at market. I can’t wait to show you some of the ideas I used to pair it together. Take a look below.
I hope you enjoyed this quick scroll through what I predict the trends for 2023 will be in colors for Christmas trees. As for styles? Well, that is what I love about Christmas, you can create your own unique style or try out something tried and true. I have defined styles for upcoming course, “Decorating a Christmas Tree like Alisa Berry” into six different styles. Follow me on my Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Alisaberryinteriordesign1st/ and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/alisaberrydesigns/ this week as we begin to take a look at the six styles. I am curious which “one” you will fit into or will it be multiple? Never fear my dears, I have a fun little quiz to help you figure it out in the course which is launching on July 10th, if the Lord is willing and the creek don’t rise.
A few years ago, I was a designer just designing for whoever came along and there was no joy in it for me. But, I wanted more meaningful and so did my clients. Now, I help women learn to be bold in their lives by transforming their homes from boring and bland to the unique and gorgeous home that serves their dreams.
