It will soon be Christmas, which means you may have started planning how you want to deck the halls with Christmas decorations this year. If you want a new look that is sure to stand out why not go for something a little different and go for a Scottish Highlands themed Christmas.
Two different colour palettes come to mind when you think of the Scottish Highlands; the first is dark blue, green, white, and gold. The other is red, dark blue and gold. Choosing different Christmas baubles and decorations in these colour schemes are the first step in achieving a ‘Scottish Highlands’ themed Christmas. Whichever you decide to choose there are a few key things to keep in mind to create a striking look.
We think the key to this theme is the use of ribbon. Using ribbon is a super simple way to create a cohesive look. Drape tartan ribbon down the Christmas tree or cascade it down the staircase for a seamless look. We also love the idea of using tartan ribbon in a wreath, Tie a great big tartan bow into your wreath and use a matching piece to hang it and create a warm welcome.
Another thing you can do to achieve this look successfully is using unique and bespoke decorations that incorporate natural elements such as wood, pinecones, or foliage. The introduction of natural elements brings a sense of being in the hills in Scotland and embracing the outdoors.
To finish off this look, you will need to add some finishing touches to your home. Incorporating cushions with highlands stags or continuing the plaid style is a brilliant and super trendy way to achieve this theme and will elevate the overall look and feel of your Christmas décor.
