Once the “ber” months roll in, the Christmas ornaments are immediately rolled out. Shops and bookstores are full to the brim with dancing santas and fairy lights, and the visual and aural overload can be overwhelming!
For a change, go for a fresher, subtler Christmas with decor that veers away from the traditional bright red and green. The 2016 Holiday Collection from KISHoffers elegant pieces with beautiful, jewel-like details, making each ornament a timeless collectible that you can use for many years. Here are five Christmas holiday trends we’ve spotted from the collection:
A realistic Christmas tree. Holiday collections now veer away from artificial-looking Christmas trees in otherworldly neon hues. The trend leans toward surprisingly realistic trees with subdued details, like this medium fir tree that comes with its own pinecones and fairy lights.
Vintage fauna. Fairy tale-like creatures can capture the imaginations of young and old alike, and figure greatly in KISH’s glass disc ornaments. These snowy owls and prancing reindeers are rendered in vintage-style illustrations.
Jewel-like ornaments. Cut crystal, jet, and multicolored stones set in silver or gold settings like this may seem more like jewelry for a night out, but are actually delicate drop ornaments for the tree. Hang in different gem-like hues for a dazzling tree.
Bejeweled birds. Hundreds of tiny rhinestones decorate this Diamond Champagne Bird ornament, making it look like a glittering minaudiere. Use several of these shining beauties in an all-white Christmas setting.
Minimalist wreath. Nix the heavily ornamented, fat wreaths bursting with ribbons and opt for a more streamlined wreath made out of pinecones and a single velvet ribbon. A wreath like this would look great on the door of a modern home.
All pieces are available at KISH, 233 N. Garcia St., Makati City.
