There are many different ways and aesthetics when it comes to displaying Christmas decorations in a home. There are those who consult the list of trends that will be most popular each season, such as the most fashionable colors and types of decorations. Other people apply their own personal style to their decoration, using their favorite shades or making their own decorations.
There are also people who prefer to hire the services of a professional decorator to fill their home with Christmas spirit. While others decorate their house with recycled materials. And, of course, there are those who decorate every year with the same traditional decorations that have lasted generation after generation in their family.
But with the rise of social networks and new technologies, in 2023 we are witnessing the emergence of a curious method to plan and design Christmas decorations: a TikTok filter.
TikTok filters are the order of the day. There are different types and each one more surprising. The one we are dealing with here is one that already has the category of viral, since more than 800 thousand users have put it to the test. Specifically, it is the 'Christmas Filter' filter, designed by effects creator @omarito529.
This filter works with the help of Artificial Intelligence, analyzing what your camera lens captures and transforming it into a very Christmassy picture. You just have to enter the name of the filter in the TikTok search engine and click on 'Use this effect'. Your smartphone's camera will immediately open and, when you hit the record button, a three-second countdown will appear.
Then, you will have to wait a few moments while the filter loads and it will return the image that you have focused on completely transformed into a room full of Christmas details, while the Christmas song “It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” plays in the background.
Keep in mind that this is a filter that uses Artificial Intelligence, so the results are very unpredictable. You can change your paintings or prints for Christmas-themed designs, place Christmas textiles on beds and sofas, hang garlands and place Christmas trees in any corner. As well as depositing gift packages or decorative figures here and there.
You cannot alter the image returned by the filter in the video itself. But what you can do is use the result as an inspiration guide when decorating your home this Christmas. The filter will give you original ideas that will surprise you and you can search for similar decorations to recreate the image created by artificial intelligence. Or, simply, have a fun time discovering how AI would transform your house into a Christmas paradise to add 'likes' on social networks.
