Nordic is still a top trend for 2017 – think rustic and crafty, with a homemade look, lots of natural materials such as wool and wood and a simple colour scheme with lots of red and white. Woodland creatures such as rabbits and deer and fantasy figures like gnomes and elves also feature strongly.
The overall effect is cosy and traditional, and some of these decorations are so cute they’re bound to become family classics. Here are our top ten picks.
