One of the joys of the holiday season is decorating. Whether it is traditional family ornaments or the latest trend, holiday decorations add sparkle and magic to the season. They turn family gatherings into something special!
This week we will take a look at color in holiday decorating with a few curated images of what we found to be the best of the season. Enjoy!
White is a favorite for the holidays. It is snowy and elegant and used on its own, makes a lavish statement. Trés chic!
Red is a Christmas favorite. If you are lucky enough to have a head start with red room décor, red ornaments are a no-brainer!
This dining room with classic architecture went bold and geometric with its decoration. The paper snowflakes are both modern in styling, but reminiscent of the paper snowflakes most of us made as children. Dramatic!
Blue is ever present for Christmas and Hanukkah. It is the magical color of star lit snow. This bold blue table setting would be a delight for either celebration!
Traditionally the decorations of Yule, where greenery symbolized the continuity of life, green branches of pine, holly and mistletoe lend themselves well to a simpler, more natural decorating style.
Often used in classic decorating, often combined with red, and Victorian inspired design, these greens are visually pleasing and offer a wonderful natural aroma, too!
Purple may not be a traditional Christmas color, but it can make a visual impact! Playing off the wall color, this room with a purple theme is stunning, bold and very festive!
Yellow, often mistakenly passed off as gold on some Christmas decorations, may not be a traditional Christmas color but in the American South, this yellow lemon wreath would certainly be a welcome sight to visitors!
Orange is another non-traditional color and quite frankly one I hadn’t considered until I saw this image. The rich warmth of the orange ornaments is certainly very welcoming!
Ivory is always a great choice for classical elegance. It has a warmth that stark white can’t offer.
This table uses shades of ivory, off white and ecru to create a wonderful, rich and sophisticated setting.
Pink is another non-traditional Christmas color, but this fun tree inspired this post!
With the all white interior of this space, the pink Christmas tree has a warm welcoming glow!
Turquoise is often associated with the Southwest, summer and beaches. As a holiday color it is reminiscent of snowy shadows.
This stylish mantel combines it with white that softly reflects and diffuses the turquoise for a variety of subtle tones.
Black is an unlikely color for Christmas, but for very modern or industrial styled spaces, it can be a powerful statement. These pretty ornaments would also work well with any color scheme to add depth and variety.
Silver is a Christmas favorite. More than tinsel or garlands, silver is a versatile color that works for both modern and traditional settings.
This pretty mantel decoration in all silver uses a variety of shapes and scale to create a wonderfully festive arrangement.
Gold is the grand master of holiday decorating. It can be paired with any other color to create richness and depth.
On its own, the warmth of gold adds a magical glow to any space.
This pretty package uses gold and texture to create a wonderfully luxurious gift presentation.
While each of these colors can help to create a memorable holiday display, a multi-colored Christmas is sure to please anyone!
We would like to wish you and your loved ones very
We hope to see you again in the New Year!
