We can never get enough of the red Christmas decorations. They are the ones that are the most traditional and remind us the most of Christmas when we see them. There is something so magical about them. This color makes the home warm, welcoming, and inviting! When I think about red Christmas decoration, to mind immediately comes the tartan plaid. It adds a special feel to the space without an effort. Don’t be afraid to incorporate it in the room through some bold furniture pieces like stools. If you don’t feel like making big changes, just get some plaid pillows, blankets or ribbons that you can attach to the tree. The red Christmas berries will be a nice addition to this fabulous Christmas color theme too, don’t you think?

What do you say about coming red and white together? The results are going to be truly stunning.

When deciding on the red color scheme it doesn’t necessarily have to mean that you have to go for red Christmas tree ornaments. Have your tree decorated all in white, and go ahead to add other red home decorations in your home that will set the tone.

Although the blue color is considered cold, it can be a wonderful choice for the holidays especially if you already have blue hues in your home decor. The various shades of blue like tiffany, navy, royal, serenity, and others remind of snow and icy lakes. Adding some silver details in this blue color scheme is a good idea too. Feel free to experiment with other colors as well, like white, gold, or other bold colors if you are feeling brave.

When considering Christmas color themes pay attention to the color scheme that you already have in your home. Choose complementary colors because they are the ones that will bring out that seasonal feeling and will make everything matching. If you have some colors in mind that evoke good childhood memories, consider them as well. Tablecloths, blankets, and pillows that you already have may also help you decide on the dominant colors of your Christmas decorations. It doesn’t really matter what are colors that you are going to go for because all decorations are magical during this time of the year! I hope that you are all going to have wonderful holidays spend with loved ones!
