Holiday Decorating

HOLIDAY DECORATING:

What’s more exciting than Holidays?  To us…not much!  I know we’re not alone based on Christmas music blasting from car radios starting in early November.  (You know who you are!)  Christmas is a time of great joy while we celebrate with loved ones.  We eat every sweet treat wafting through our homes, enjoy a little time off work, and decorate our homes for the festivities!

 

Traditionally speaking, Christmas colors have always been green and red.  Everything from trees, and garlands, to wreaths and accessories… but a growing trend has left timidity to the wind.  Now it’s becoming increasingly popular to use any color, or combination of colors, that one admires in their Christmas décor.

 

We believe there’s always a time and place for traditional touches, but admire and want to encourage everyone to think outside the box.  Oh the possibilities!  Let the spirit of your true personality shine as you decorate this year.  Who knows, you may like what you come up with!  If you need a little inspiration, check out these beautiful ideas below.

 

Black and white – simplistic elegance:

We love how this look can be anything from contemporary to country.  This is a great way to add Christmas spirit to a home that is already full of color because it won’t clash with its surroundings.  Furthermore, the Industrial décor style is wildly popular and this Christmas color (rather lack there of) would also pair fabulously with that minimalistic charm!

Beautiful blue hues – a cool twist on decorating:

Everything from Tiffany blue and powder blue to vibrant teal and icy blue, this look will turn your home into a winter wonderland!  We love it paired with silver (both brushed and shiny), greens, and whites.  It’s a sure way to make your space feel current and stylish!

Metallic touches  – shimmers all around:

You can’t go wrong with metallic.  Gold, silver, copper, and sparkles only enhance the festive feeling.  This look is perfect for someone who may choose to add color to the scheme in years to come, as it will make a beautiful backdrop until you do so.  Metallic colors look extra rich when layered together, so don’t feel stuck with just one.  Mix and match in order to achieve a truly decadent design.

Rich Royals – these saturated tones are big on impact!

These jewel tones are regal and opulent.  This is a color scheme growing in popularity in all home furnishings and fashion so naturally it’s popping up during the holidays.  Due to the bold nature of royal colors, we love how a little can go a long way.  If you’re short on budget and big on taste, why not try this color trend?

Bright and Cheerful – these colors will let guests know they’re at a party:

This is perhaps the least traditional, but the most fun color scheme for Christmas.  These bright pinks, blues, greens, yellows and oranges are certainly cheerful and provoke a good mood.  It’s especially great for spaces with children who tend to gravitate to eye-catching color.

Lastly, here are a couple of classic examples using green and red.  We love the touches of modern whimsy these gorgeous items display.  If you’re stuck on traditional, we’re ok with that, but at least now you have a plethora of options.  Too many options?  Nah….
