Historically, the traditional Christmas colors are red and green. The tradition got its start in the 14th Century, became ingrained in American society and accepted as the colors that represent Christmas. If red and green just isn’t your thing, don’t let tradition stop you. Get creative with some of these new and interesting color combinations.
New Christmas color traditions
If you want to try some new colors this Christmas, there is absolutely no reason to keep carrying on the tradition. Instead, start a new tradition in your home. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Stick with your personal decor choices
Choose colors based on your home’s decorating scheme. If you have contemporary black and silver in your modern home, choosing a rustic theme with burgundy’s and hunter greens just won’t fit. Choose Christmas colors that complement the colors in your home.
Choose colors with equal depth
Pastels work together — peach, butter, baby blue, lilac and mint complement each other. If you prefer stronger colors, try deep jewel tones together like navy, hunter, and deep red.
Work with neutrals
White, ivory, and metallic colors, brass, gold, silver, pewter, rusted iron, are your neutrals for Christmas. Choose one or two neutrals to work with and add in one or two other colors that complement each other. For example, white, silver, and blue or sage green, ivory, and pewter.
Shop for ideas
If you aren’t the creative or decorating type, go shopping for ideas. Go to stores and check out the tree displays to see what colors their professional designers combined.
