In some ways color is for me more important than actual design elements. I always follow my intuition and choose the color which feels good in my surroundings. Since I like most colors I often switch but choose some colors more often than others. It might not come as a surprise, but I personally prefer green style Christmas decorations. Therefore there will be a green Christmas home for me this year!
In order to choose a proper color scheme for your Christmas decorations, think about what colors you already have. A good rule of thumb is to always choose colors that match or contrast nicely with your decor. Your color scheme can be made up of Christmas lights, ornaments, garlands, wreaths, ribbons, sequins and stockings, which are available in a variety of colors. You don’t need to totally redesign your home to create a cozy Christmas atmosphere. I prefer to use my everyday accessories, add some fresh flowers and just a few Christmas decorations to create a personal touch and a spirit of Christmas in my home.
Green is the color of nature, growth, the fields, hope and spring. At Christmas under the ancient winter festivals, green indicated the hope that spring would come back and reign victorious over winter.
Many of you will agree with me that when you think of Christmas the two colors that come to mind are always red and green, and I guess we have all used them at some Christmas past. From Santa’s red suit to poinsettias, reindeers and bows, the shades of red first come to mind. Greens are also traditional; emerald green in varying shades of Christmas flowers and plants to the vivid shade of the Christmas tree.
Your Christmas color scheme should always be an expression of how you and your family feel about Christmas. Keep it personal. It should never be something to impress the neighbors and friends or to win a prize. Instead, it should be a theme that truly means something to you and your family.
In my home, Christmas will be green no matter if there will be any more snow outside. Enjoy decorating your green Christmas home!
I wish all Purodeco’s readers a Merry Christmas!
