7 Color Schemes to Decorate Your Home for the Holidays


Although red and green are the two most popular colors associated with Christmas time, there are quite a few different color schemes that show off your holiday spirit beautifully. Choosing which holiday colors you will decorate your home with could be personal preference, an attempt to work with the current color scheme of the room, or you could choose to reinvent an entire space with an entirely new look. John Elliott Interiors has a few festive ideas for you in today's blog.

Red & Green
You simply can't go wrong with the classics! Bright reds and greens always bring a festive feel to any holiday display, like the glorious shade of Santa's suit and the consistent look of an evergreen. This will probably be the easiest color scheme to find Christmas decorations in due to the popularity of this pairing, allowing you to mix and match decor you have used in the past with new items. 

Silver & Gold
This color pairing is so perfect for the holidays, it even has a song honoring it! These metallic colors bring an upbeat energy to your holiday decor. They are neutral enough that you can choose just about any pop of color to go along with them if you like. Many silver and gold decorations are perfect for carrying you through a New Year's Eve celebration too.

White Christmas
Here is yet another gorgeous idea for your holiday decorations that has a song named after it! Bring the snowy look of the outdoors inside when you choose to decorate everything in a crisp, clean white. Alone this color can be absolutely breathtaking, but it is also a great color scheme for allowing you to add pops of color here and there. The best part is that you can leave many of your snowy decorations out all winter long. 

Blue & Silver
Winter wonderlands not only have snow but plenty of icicles too. Shiny silvers and icy blues are a good way to duplicate those naturally shimmery decorations of the outdoors.

Purple & Gold
If you prefer a bolder, more royal look during the holidays, purple and gold pull this off beautifully. Purple and yellow are complimentary colors on the color wheel, and shining up that yellow to a glorious gold makes everything seem a lot more merry and bright.

Green & Brown
If you'd like to incorporate a more rustic look of the outdoors, the green of the evergreen needles and brown from the bark give you just that. Other natural elements like firewood, pine cones, jute string, and more lend to the natural feel of it all. Pops of red plaid ribbons also look beautiful alongside this type of decor. 

Cranberry & Cream
Muted shades of red and white offer a soft, cozy feel to any room. Off-white and cream decor paired alongside cranberries, poinsettias, and other classic holiday red items give off a very warm and inviting vibe in any room.
