3 Christmas Mood Boards that will win you a round of Santa-plause
- December 18, 2018
With Christmas just round the corner, you may need some visual flat-lays to draw some festive inspirations from. Here are 3 Christmas themed moodboards to excite you and give you a rough idea of what to fill up in your shopping list:
Like Elvis croons in Blue Christmas, “decorations of red on a green Christmas tree won’t be the same” if you’re not with me. Suppose you are not feeling the reds or greens this Christmas, why not try a combination of blue, white and gold decor theme instead? This colour combination pairs contrasting hues together with a sheen of metal for that modern and chic feel.
A navy blue velvet arm chair is a great spot to open up those presents and cards. Not only does it look sleek, the velvet material makes it easy to lounge in with in a simple velvet pillow for even greater comfort. If it’s cold outside, sip some hot chocolate or eggnog from dainty tea cups with gold patterns. Or try lighting some candles on this quirky geometric candle stand, which can definitely pull off as a centrepiece for your living area to create a cosy ambience for your family.
But what Christmas look is complete without the tree or the baubles? Considering the limited space in Singapore apartments, consider purchasing small Christmas tree decor to amp up the interior for the holiday season. A neutral white porcelain stand works well in this theme. Throw in a sleek geometric vase and gold plate to wrap the look for your table setting.

Who said black or grey is too dull for Christmas? This year’s trend is towards a black and grey Christmas! This mood board demonstrates how you can pair up these items in darker shades and still create a festive vibe.
Against all the brighter red, yellow and blue ornaments, black acts as a wonderful contrast and backdrop. Instead of choosing just black, try different shades of grey to add variation to your set up. You should also choose textured or printed items . For example, marble prints are used in the vase and paintings, adding interesting detail. You can also go for a glossy finish by using metallic elements or smooth porcelain surfaces.

The evergreen favourite amongst Christmas colours. As the colour of life, growth and nature, green has become synonymous with new beginnings in other countries. Singapore may not have winter but we can still deck our halls with boughs of (artificial) holly.
The holly-inspired accessory could be used to wrap your paper towels or menus when hosting guests for dinner. Try cute Christmas tree printed plates and tea towel, layered on top of luxurious emerald green plates for a beautiful Christmas setting table.
If you have a Christmas tree at home, a green felt pig can be a good unconventional choice to fuzz up the look. Or hang a cute reindeer sock to keep your remote control or gifts. Consider more muted shades like sage green in your carpet or pillows to create a relaxing and laid back atmosphere. Remember to avoid shades like neon greens as it may make your interior to look gaudy.
