How to Decorate a Christmas Tree: 2022 Trends
While there’s certainly nothing wrong with sticking to tradition, trying out some new holiday trends can make decorating especially enjoyable. For 2022, Christmas décor ideas offer something to suit every style. From sophisticated sparkle and chic jewel tones to elements inspired by nature, you choose from a variety of trends when you trim this year’s tree.
Here are just a few of the Christmas 2022 trends and ideas for decorating your holiday tree:
In recent years, the concept of hygge style has become incredibly popular around the globe. Inspired by a Danish word for the pleasantly cozy, the hygge aesthetic is a comfortable sense of contentment from finding joy in simple things. Considering that so many of us have a renewed appreciation for the small pleasures in life, it makes sense that hygge-style Christmas décor is trending in a big way.
For a Scandinavian Christmas décor style, go for minimalistic elements, neutral tones, natural materials, and plenty of warm, glowing light. Keep it simple, but aim for a completely cozy feel. A Scandinavian-inspired Christmas tree makes a noticeable impact with just a small number of decorative touches, such as:
- Warm white twinkle lights
- Battery-powered candles
- Ornaments in shades of white, cream, gray, or black
- Nature-inspired decorations, such as pinecones or acorns
While the idea of opulent holiday décor isn’t necessarily new, what we see for 2022 is a shift in luxury looks. This year, your tree can be extravagant without looking overdone when you incorporate richly saturated jewel tones and metallics. Trending Christmas color combinations in 2022 include the gorgeous trio of emerald green, ivory, and gold, making a glamorous jumping-off point for decorating your tree.

For the vintage style enthusiasts, 2022 will bring plenty of ideas for putting a new spin on old – but never outdated – elements. You can expect to see a significant return to the tradition of handmade-style décor, with features that inspire fond memories and family traditions. This trend is all about making your holiday tree as uniquely “you” as possible, aiming for a perfect personal look that makes you and your family smile.

Your décor can be a heart-warming way to enjoy the spirit of the “good old days” with a modern sense of style, including elements such as:
