Interior decoration in 2016: basic rules
When choosing decorations for your home this year, keep in mind the colors of the 2016 symbol. Fire Monkey – the mistress of the next year – prefers bright red, yellow, fiery red shades.
Since fire is one of the essential attributes, it is worth stocking up on beautiful candles and icon lamps.
You can’t do without Christmas trees either. It can be both voluminous paper origami, and wooden, knitted and fabric crafts.
The main thing is not to overdo it with color. It is better to distribute bright accessories in proportion to the house. Everything should be combined: red, yellow shades of jewelry and green, beige, pastel colors of the interior.
The monkey must be present in the house: a figurine, a toy, a poster. Such decoration needs to find a place on the festive table, cabinets or fireplace..
Do not forget about snowflakes – without them, the interior cannot be considered completely New Year’s!
In anticipation of the Year of the Fire Monkey, take care of the decor. The eccentric monkey will show his special favor to those who use their imagination and decorate every corner of the house.
A few tips:
- The first thing to do is to replace the curtains in the house with brighter and more original ones, decorated with beautiful ornaments or patterns..
- The living room should be given special attention. Festive little things in vases, decorations on windows and walls – all this will create a festive atmosphere.
- A Christmas wreath made of coniferous twigs, ribbons, Christmas tree decorations and other accessories will be very useful on the front door.
- Walls shouldn’t be left intact: snowflakes and photo collages will look great on them.
We must remember that beautifully decorating a house for the New Year is only half the battle. To create an atmosphere of comfort and warmth is another thing you have to work on!
How to decorate a house for the New Year with your own hands
Since the Fire Monkey likes comfort and coziness in the house, you can devote time to creativity and do something for decorating with your own hands.
New Year is a family holiday, so you can involve all family members, even the smallest, in decorating your home. Cutting snowflakes or gluing a garland can be a very fun joint activity for children and adults. Moreover, the more people, the more ideas!
Snowflakes are the easiest option for New Year’s decorations. To make a beautiful decor, you only need scissors and paper (it can be colored, ordinary white, corrugated). Stock up on diligence and stencils. You can cut out not only snowflakes, but also a variety of New Year’s pictures.
Minimum effort, and this is how the transformed window of your home will look like in the end!
For those who like to paint, there is another option for decorating windows in the house.. You can use stencils to make the drawing neat.
You can create whole stories with artificial snow in a spray can or toothpaste! Most importantly, the windows are easy to clean after the holidays..
Felt toys are the trend of the season! Any adult can draw simple patterns on fabric. And the whole family can start making toys. Children will love it! And such beauty will decorate your home.
Ordinary pine cones are what you can use in your home. It is enough just to tie them up with a beautiful bright ribbon of red or yellow color.
Monkeys can be cut out of colored or white paper and glued to windows, molded from plasticine.
As they say in Eastern beliefs, the bell is the main talisman of the Fire Monkey. It can be either a lone bell over the door so that each guest at the entrance to the house can notify the owners of their arrival, or a whole garland of bells of different sizes and colors that will look good over the door of the bedroom, living room or kitchen.
Decorating the 2016 Christmas tree
What is the most famous symbol of the upcoming holiday? Christmas tree! The holiday is not the same without her. It is not necessary to put a real fir tree in the house; you can buy an artificial one. Such a New Year’s beauty will bring the same amount of joy.
When dressing up the main symbol of the holiday, do not forget that the decorations should be red, orange, yellow. If the rain, balls and tinsel have remained from last year, then buy or use bright toys made with your own hands from felt, lace, threads and other materials. Their color is what matters.
Kitchen decoration for the New Year
Most people have a festive dinner in the kitchen. So you need to pay attention to tables and chairs: deal with their upholstery, decorate with pendants.
Tinsel, rain, garlands and invariable snowflakes will look beautiful on the ceiling and walls. The tablecloth on the table should be red, perhaps laced or with painted ornaments, it is good if the beige color is present on the tablecloth. The middle of the table is where the monkey figurine is. For chairs, beige covers will be in the theme. Spruce branches can be placed in vases in different places, and the cones can be laid out on the windowsill. Tablecloth and chair covers are mandatory accessories for the New Year’s table, remember this.
In conclusion, I want to say: give your fantasy freedom and you will be rewarded for it!
Happy New Year to you!
