Colour Schemes

A great way to switch things up every year with your decorations is playing around with different colour schemes. You’ve got your core colours – red, blue and green, and how you pair them up with colours like silver, white and gold makes all the difference.

Red and gold are a particularly majestic combination which will give you the ultimate Christmas vibes.

Years ago, green decor would involve lots of green baubles, tinsel and other tree trimmings. These days, however, the trend has moved towards more greenery by creatively using wreaths and garlands.

Holiday Feasting

Your dining room is the main area where most of the festivities will take place as its where everyone gathers for the feast. So why not get it decked out? Decorate your table with baubles and a name tag attached to it for a festive twist. You can alternate between sparkly silver baubles to switch things up and add some contrast.

Alternatively, make a bold statement and lay out a festive runner along the middle of your table and keep your centrepiece simple with decor to compliment it. An inexpensive material to achieve this look would be to use coloured paper, making it super budget-friendly!

Nothing screams Christmas more than the colour red. From its celebratory connotations to even Santa Claus’ famous red suit, it is deeply festive and truly an iconic colour.

Have a mixture of decor from decorative plates to party crackers and faux holly berries centred around the theme to tie it all together. You can also add red napkins with a pinecone shaped napkin ring.

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

When it comes to decorating your living room, especially your tree, you can either go all out or create subtle accents related to your colour scheme around your space. The Maximist option would be to have an abundance of decorations in every corner and a tree decked out in assorted Christmas ornaments.

The minimalist style is a lot simpler and more subtle, with a tree that incorporates your chosen colour theme, letting it speak for itself. Follow through with pops of colour using throws, pillows and subtle festive ornaments.
