When retailers dropped their holiday collections this year, one thing was immediately clear: In 2020, there are a lot of decorations to choose from. (Target alone dropped more than 3,400 new pieces, if that's any indication of the incredible range.) Despite the massive amounts of accessories available to shop, though, a few holiday 2020 decor trends have already begun to emerge.
Naturally, many reflect what's already happening in the design world — so lucky for you, at least one of them will probably fit right into your existing decor. That includes the cottagecore trend, a look that shot up in popularity at the beginning of 2020 and, yes, has now made its way into your Christmas ornaments and garlands. You've probably also noticed that nature-inspired pieces have been a staple in this year's decor, and unsurprisingly, that theme is also making an appearance in much of this year's holiday decorations.
But with so much to choose from, you know there are plenty more trends to try out in your home, so keep scrolling — five of the most noteworthy ones are below.
