Scandinavian design is known for its simplicity and emphasis on coziness. The Scandinavian Christmas decorating style brings warmth and charm to the holiday season with a focus on natural elements and minimalist aesthetics.

Natural Materials: Embrace the beauty of wood by incorporating wooden ornaments, branches or berries and, if you can, highlight wooden furniture.

This Christmas decorating style is all about “the more, the merrier!” It’s for people who believe in the philosophy of "more is more." The maximalist embraces an abundance of colours, textures and decorations to create a visually rich holiday wonderland.

How to Achieve the Maximalist Look:
Bold Colours:
 Opt for a vibrant colour palette with rich reds, deep greens, purple, burgundy, navy blue or teal and incorporate luxurious golds and silvers.

Think Abundance When it Comes to Decorations:  Don't hold back on ornaments, lights, ribbons, candles or other Christmas decor.  Layer décor throughout your space for a lush, lavish ambience.

Mix and Match: Combine various textures and patterns for a visually stimulating effect. Velvet stockings, metallic ornaments and sequined tree skirts are all fair game.
