Four Seasonal Color Palettes

Posted by creatingyourspace under Holiday

The holiday season is amongst us and full of cheer! It is always fun to decorate for the holidays and create a festive atmosphere in our homes. There are many ways to spruce up your space for the season. For example, adding a Christmas tree with a variation of lights, ornaments, and tinsel, as well as garland on the fireplace mantle, are all great ways to help make your home feel festive.

Décor can be placed throughout your whole house to help encapsulate the holiday spirit. While traditional Christmas décor can feel uniform and balanced throughout your home, you can always take your décor to the next level. For instance, if you have a neutral color palette home, Christmas décor will really pop. That being said, making your Christmas décor color palette match is essential to help the flow of the atmosphere. To help readers better understand, here are four great seasonal color palettes to consider in your home:

Red, Green, & Gold

This traditional color palette looks great in any setting since red and green are most commonly affiliated with Christmas décor. To spice it up, you can add some gold into the mix to help create a more luxurious feel. You will find that this color palette can be used in a variety of ways. For instance, a green pine tree with all red bulbs will look great with gold lights and tinsel. You can even carry this theme throughout the whole home, making green your primary color, red your secondary, and gold as your accent.

Silver, White, & Blue

Are you looking for an elegant and winter-inspired wonderland? Try using a silver, white, and blue color palette. This light and airy Christmas color palette can make your home feel elegant and beautiful. You can get a white Christmas tree and decorate it with silver and blue. Plus, this dazzling look can be added throughout the whole home. You can add white stockings and snow-inspired décor to create your winter oasis.

Warm, Earthy Tones

Are you not feeling the cold this winter? If so, make your home feel a little bit warmer with this rustic Christmas palette. You can add earthy, warm tones throughout your space while still being festive. The forest green from a real pine tree and garland in your home can be a great start. You can add pine cones and some candles to take a warmer approach on decorating your home.

Eclectic Style

Since Christmas is fun, you can be as creative as you desire! Perhaps you are into all the colors this season has to offer. From the diverse wrapping papers to rainbow-colored lights on the tree, this eclectic styling can be a fun way to decorate as well.

Holiday Decorating with a Designer’s Eye: Part 2

If you took a chance with color in your decorating, are you now concerned that holiday decorations will clash with your home? Don’t be – you can make any color décor complement the season.

Do you have color in accessories rather than in permanent elements? If so, you can just put those pieces away for the holidays and choose any colors you want.

If your throw pillows don’t work with your plans, do a quick change-up by picking up some yardage in your holiday tones. Cut the fabric into large squares. Set the squares on the diagonal and place your pillow in the center. Tie opposite corners together in the back, and when you turn it over you have a new cover on your old pillow for the rest of the holidays.

Even if you have permanent room elements such as flooring or furniture in a color, you can incorporate those shades into your holiday look. Blue works well with silver and white, orange with gold and white. Holiday greenery works with any color combination.

If you love color, consider using the holidays to bring in hues you normally don’t have in your home. In this photo, pink and purple create a festive yet modern holiday look, and the more traditional red and green elements still work.

Why not take a chance with color in your home this season? Bring in an unexpected favorite tone to make your home’s holiday décor special and unique.

Do you find yourself less than satisfied with your holiday decorating? Approaching your home with some planning will help you create the holiday home of your dreams.

The most important thing you can do is to rethink your space before you add in any decorations. If you have a tree, be sure to spend time choosing the best location, and don’t hesitate to remove or rearrange furniture to accommodate it.

While you’re at it, pack away all of the accessories in your living space before you decorate. Festive holiday elements can be distracting and start feeling like clutter unless they are the only decorative pieces in a space. Take a look at the photo. With only a few decorations, this space says holiday without shouting it.

Don’t think every corner has to have a decoration. Instead, select a few focal points to bring the holiday into a room. Create tableaus with your decorations – for example if you have a collection of nutcrackers, instead of scattering them throughout the room, group them and lay pine boughs between them. Add a few shiny ornaments among the pine and you have created a special holiday moment.

If your home has an open style or space is limited, connect your holiday decorations with color, style, or approach, to allow all of the elements to work together to create a consistent mood. This photo has connections with color, and the rustic natural pieces contrast with the shining ornaments and candleholders. This feeling could be carried throughout a room, leading to a designed as well as decorated holiday home.
