Do you no longer like your Christmas decorations? Do you want a change this year? No problem! Regularly, it is good to change the holiday decoration to renew the magic that is associated with this period. In this article, we wanted to take an interest in color. She has special treatment. We do not use color in the same way for Christmas decoration as for classic interior decoration. For the holidays, we tend to use more colors – not in number but a proportion.
CHRISTMAS IN RED & WHITE – CLASSIC AND TRADITIONAL CELEBRATIONS
The color of berries and holly, the color of barley sugar… But above all the color of Santa’s clothes. Red is the most classic and anticipated color there is but that’s not a problem. For this time of year, we accept pictures without worries. They are part of the atmosphere elsewhere.
So how do you use red to decorate for Christmas?
Red in the tree: balls, of course, homemade decoration like small gifts, barley sugar …
Red in the decoration of the house: the socks hanging on the fireplace, a touch of red in the Christmas wreath using ribbon for example …
Read on the Christmas table: the table runner, the napkins, the centerpiece (which can very well be the wreath usually hung on the wall) …
What about white?
To counterbalance the red a little, the white is interesting. We will obviously talk to you about white after in this article. For the moment, we’ll just say that white is to red what Santa’s beard is to his coat. One does not go without the other, or almost.
CHRISTMAS IN WHITE FOR ELEGANT HOLIDAYS
White – besides being associated with Santa’s beard – is a stylish color. It’s a choice as classic as red and white but less cliché. White will represent purity, snow. And when it comes to Christmas decoration, it’s super easy to use. What is also interesting with white is that it’s not just reserved for Christmas, it will more easily symbolize winter. So even if you don’t entertain until New Years’, white will be your ally.
CHRISTMAS IN CRAFT – MORE CONTEMPORARY AND SOMETIMES RECYCLED
We like the idea of recycling for the Christmas holidays. We have already had the opportunity to tell you about it in previous years: naturalness and recuperation are the “colors” that we like the most for the holidays. Now that ecology is all the rage and everyone is a little more aware of the ins and outs of the environment, it’s a theme that is even more easily available for the holidays.
GOLDEN CHRISTMAS – A GLAMOROUS TOUCH FOR THE HOLIDAYS
While brass and the color gold have made a name for themselves in the decoration sphere for several years, the golden color in Christmas decoration is a classic. It is a sparkling color, synonymous with luxury and glamor. It’s a way to enhance your end-of-year decoration.
How is gold used for the end-of-year decoration?
On the tree: gold easily finds its place, a large number of decorations are available in gold. It is not difficult to find some. If you just want a more sparkling touch, you can settle for the gold star at the top of the tree.
Gold on the table is also an easy fix. You can choose tableware with a golden border. You can also have fun with place cards or cutlery. Gold comes to the table mainly in small touches unlike red, for example, which can be proportionately larger.
And in the decoration of the house for the holidays, gold can be a mix of Christmas decoration and classic decoration: candles, tealights, and candle holders are tinted with gold to enhance your interior.
