Green Christmas home

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!

 

Green Christmas home

 

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. Read More

Even the lighting is now decorated with vibrant green plants, I really like this trend!

In this white apartment with green as the reviewing color has a flower enthusiast from Norway found his own Christmas style. The owner has created an elegant home with elements from different eras.
