When decorating homes for Christmas, many turn to the traditional holiday colors of red and green. While these colors have an air of traditional festivity, they can get pretty monotonous and overwhelming, especially if your décor doesn’t change much from year to year. Try something different this Christmas by incorporating a wider selection of colors to complement your holiday decorations. It’s a small change, but it will make your home a grand visual treat for you and your guests.
Here are a few tips to help you get started:
Decide on a Color Scheme
Before matching colors together, first decide on a main color scheme. However, keep in mind that green and red are standby Christmas colors on most décor pieces, so work your color scheme around that. Once you have decided, use a color wheel as a guide. This will ensure that the colors you end up selecting will beautifully complement each other. For example, to tone down the usage of the color red, you may want to use pink or red-orange in its place. You may even add yellow into the mix to create a beautiful glow.
