Window Wonderland: Holiday Winter Displays 2016

With the holiday shopping in full swing, major shopping areas such as The Grove and Rodeo Drive have once again turned their window displays into celebrations of the season! While some stores stick with classic Christmas themes, others go a less traditional route with everything from metallic reindeer to dazzling neon lights. These window displays celebrate the festive season while adding eye candy to your holiday shopping spree.

METALLIC
This high-chroma style is very popular this year, with metallic surfaces, minimal color palettes and holiday basics stripped to the essentials. The designs focus on geometry, elegant lighting, and use of
valuable materials such gold and silver.

NATURE INSPIRED
Echoing themes of the nature and focusing on an earthy palette leads to this rustic and rural
style. Comprised of reclaimed wood elements, animal themes and greenery, this trend is perfectly pared-down. Use of classic Christmas elements such as presents, light-strung trees and ornaments adorn many of this year’s window displays, and boast soft textures of cotton and yarn.
