White Lights or Multicolored? How Light Color Choices Affect Your Décor
It’s truly a sight to behold when your Christmas tree, ornaments, and lights just naturally come together. It sometimes takes a bit of work to make everything look great, but the end result is worth the extra time and effort.
For today’s post, we’ll be focusing on your light color choices: clear versus multicolored lights.
Clear or white lights are often viewed as elegant and sophisticated. They can be used in a single color palette, like white on white or gold on gold. Remember that metallic colors work especially well with white lights. As a neutral color, clear lights can also serve as a backdrop for other, bolder colors. For example, strands of white Christmas lights can be complemented with single-color ornaments in red, gold, green or blue. A unique and fun color to try this year is pink.
Multicolored Christmas lights are seen as festive and magical. A good rule of thumb with a colorful palette like this would be stick to around three to four basic colors. Once you’ve chosen your color palette, you can mix and match your ornaments! Try combining pieces like stars, ribbons, beads, and ball ornaments in different textures, sizes and shapes.
If you do decide to go beyond the traditional color palettes or decorating themes, that could work as well. You can incorporate themes such as a candy-inspired tree, contemporary, or even go for a profusion of bright color. The point is to have fun and go with what makes you feel festive. Happy decorating!
