Complement Your Home's Color with Holiday Décor

For many spaces, the usual red and green holiday decorations are overpowering. The solution: Dress traditional holiday decorations (wreaths, ornaments, etc.) in your space’s color palette.

There are many ways to fill your home with festive spirit without endless strings of Christmas lights and singing Santas. Rather than overdoing it, complement your home with a Christmas color palette that supports the existing design of your home. Fresh holiday decorations are always one of the most beautiful parts of Christmas home décor, but it doesn’t have to be only a fresh Christmas tree or wreath. Decorate with an unexpected combination of flowers using a Christmas color palette of your liking, or skip the fresh wreath and lacquer it to use year after year. Fill a bowl with ornaments that compliment your space's color palette and Christmas tree for an easy centerpiece. Or, tailor your Christmas stockings perfectly to your home by using scraps from upholstery projects. No matter the theme or Christmas color palette you choose, there are so many small ways to decorate your home for Christmas that will make a world of difference during the holidays.
