Christmas is a time when our decorating inhibitions should be left outside on the doorstep. As outside becomes dark and bleak we brighten up our world inside. Lights, glitz and glamour should be a part of any Christmas decoration but how do you make sure the final result is both tasteful and blends well with your existing décor?
The start point is the colour scheme. If your home has predominantly cool colours, such as whites, blues and purples then I would advice keeping the colour of the Christmas decorations to the same colour palette, adding silvers, pale and metallic greys. Keep the choice of main colours to no more than three and add variety with the shape and form of the decoration. If your home has warm colour tones such as yellows, browns, and reds then the traditional Christmas colours of green, gold and reds will look fabulous.
