Christmas arrives in less than three months. Though it seems far away, it’s about time to think about how you’d decorate your home. Chances are the first thing on your mind is going the traditional route and sporting the classic red-green décor. It’s classic and timeless – it just works on many levels.
But Christmas doesn’t have to be red and green all the time. In truth, you can play around and change the palettes of your décor. Here are some colour combinations that can get you started:
Brown and Green
Brown and green is the way to go when you want a traditional take minus the red. This is just a step outside the box, but the brown accents work wonderfully with green décor. The earthy charm looks both rustic and elegant, thus making it a good combination for houses that feature white, cream, and beige tones.
Red and Purple
Using purple on your décor creates a royal, regal vibe around the house, and the best colour you can pair this with is red. When you put the two colours together, the purple becomes this unique neutral shade that brightens up the red. Such a combination is perfect for homes that have many wood furniture pieces.
Blue and Lime
Blue and lime are a playful colour combination you can use this year. Just imagine a white artificial pre-lit Christmas tree full of blue balls and lime garlands – you know it will work aesthetically, even if the pairing seems unusual.
Turquoise and White
“White Christmas” doesn’t have to be all-white, so why not add turquoise as an accent colour? Turquoise, especially the lighter shades, complements white perfectly without being too flashy. Surely, this combination of coastal tones will create a relaxing feel in your home.
Navy and Silver
Match navy with silver when you want to elevate the contrast between the tones. The navy acts as the neutral hue that can blend easily with almost anything – be it on the tree or on the different decorations. Silver adds that spark, providing the white tones in your accents with sleek, refreshing charm.
Step out of the traditional colour combination of red and green this year. Play with any of these colour combinations to paint your Christmas in a different palette.
