Trend Alert : Holiday Décor 2015


As we begin planning, designing, and hosting the numerous holiday parties, we're noticing certain décor trends for the 2015 season that you should definitely try for yourself! We chatted with two of the best in the business to get the scoop on what's hot for your chilly celebrations. 

Geometric Jewel Tones, Natural Elements, & Mixed Metals

"With the Holiday Season approaching we all start to take stock of our entertaining ware and how it can be pulled together to create a beautiful tablescape for family and friends. Drape a rustic farm table with fabulous luxe fabrics to soften edges and add a warmth to the table top. Mix and Match China and flatware in gold and silver to give the place settings depth and visual interest. Cap your table with oversized upholstered chairs to add comfort and style that is sure to wow your guests! Supplementing your fine dining pieces with ornate items from Event Source is a great way to cut back on clean up time and also adds a new level of sophistication without the added expenses of additional shopping."

dreamy winter whites

"Everyone still dreams of a white Christmas, in our minds that is still holiday perfection. Don't underestimate the power of white this year. Mix whites, ivories, creams and champagne tones together for a sophisticated, dreamy winter look. Prints and patterns of floral or geometric images will be a great look with this monochromatic scheme. Metallics of all shades are in this season also. Mixing gold and copper into your white decor will be that bold statement piece of jewelry you need with your simple dress. All things shiny, glass, and sparkling will be the perfect compliment to your winter whites."

Pantone Color of the Year 2015 : Marsala


"If you love color with your decor, be trendy this holiday by using the Pantone declared 'Color of the Year, 2015, Marsala'. This deep, wine colored burgundy is a perfect pairing for this year's holiday. Instead of bright orange/reds you may notice these deeper burgundy colors popping up in stores everywhere. Embrace Marsala, the color is deeply satisfying and rich. The color looks amazing next to wooden tones which makes this the perfect color to inject into your dining room and right onto your holiday table. Because of the brown tones, Marsala matches beautifully with other organic and natural elements such as moss, succulents, artichokes, nuts, cranberries or pomegranates. Carve out the center of an artichoke and put a votive candle inside for some unexpected ambiance. Nuts or cranberries in a glass vase become a simple and elegant decor item. Use fresh cranberries in your holiday specialty drinks too!"
