Have Yourself A Modern Industrial Christmas

The trend for industrial, rustic decoration in home wares has moved into Christmas this year.  Think copper, metals, bare (exposed) bulbs, and wood.  Mix these elements in with natural firs, pine cones or berries for the perfect industrial Christmas look.

The fastest way to get the industrial look when it comes to Chirstmas lights is with NOMA’s The Bulb – a 40 Bulb Light Chain with Classic Edison Style Bulbs.  They lookc really effective whether you choose to cluster them together, or string them along a fireplace or on your tree.

Or if you want to give your mantlepeice, table, or front door an industrial feel then a wooden and metal lantern complete with exposed bulb is great for adding a welcoming glow to Winter days.

If you need extra lights to decorate foliage or a mantelpiece then steer clear of fairy lights – this look is all about exposing the elements of a product – instead simple rice lights on copper wires will give you that gorgeous Christmas sparkle in keeping with the industrial Christmas trend.

Top 10 Outdoor Christmas Lights!

NOMAs Top 10 Outdoor Christmas Lights

For a sophisticated outdoor Christmas display keep your outdoor lights subtle, with icicle or berry lights to emphasise architectural features like windows, porches, or log sheds, and simple light chains to trees for an instant outdoor Christmas tree.  Once you’ve put the basics in place it’s time to stand back and see which other areas of your house or garden could benefit from a little sprinkling of Christmas magic:  add simple snowflake lights to trees or a wall, and Christmas stake lights along a path.

  1. The Classic Christmas Outdoor Look: Get the manor-house look with light chains that accentuate the features of your house – dress your lights along the top of your house, windows, door or porch.  Decorate any flower beds or trees at the front of the house in the same lights for a coordinated look that will be the talk of the town.

Stylish Scandi Christmas

Scandinavian style is everywhere in our homes, and here’s NOMA’s guide to getting the Scandi look when it comes to your Christmas decorations.

Colours:  keep it simple with mostly white decorations, touches of silver, a little greenery and add pops of red – and if it’s red gingham, even better for that Scandi, modern-country look.

Traditional Christmas Style

Traditional Christmas Styling Tips from Team NOMA.

Trends come and go, but a traditional look for your Christmas decorations will never go out of fashion.  Add a few ‘wow’ touches and mix in some contemporary pieces too for a sophisticated traditional look that’s hard to beat.

To get the traditional look, green as a base is a must for your tree, foliage, and wreath – and then top off with reds and golds for a warm, nostalgic Christmas theme.

Add traditional-style metal lanterns for a warm Christmas glow – our NOMA lanterns come with battery-operated candles that look so good you’ll think they’re the real thing.
