Colors bring joy to interior decorating. So, here are a few holiday decorating ideas that add colors to your home. Traditional, neutral, metallic, monochromatic, complementary color palettes – the choice is yours.
Union of energetic red and relaxing green color creates a complementary color scheme that is traditionally associated with holiday decorations.
Decorating the holiday table is a great way to show your creativity and make the dining room sparkle with all the festive ornaments. Snowy white chair slipcovers, tablecloths, table toppers, napkins, and dishes, create a neutral basis of this winter decor story that makes the golden ornaments stand out in all of their richness. Golden stars, scattered all over the table, make this holiday decor story, even more, sparkling. Decorative cutlery in matte or gloss variations, as well as wine and champagne glasses, these are the welcomed ingredients of any festive holiday table arrangement. Cheers!
Napkin folding can also give a creative touch to holiday table design. Napkins can be folded in many attractive forms or decorated with Christmas tree ornaments and colorful ribbons. Add a place card and a sweet chocolate gift for every guest and these decorative napkins are ready to play their part in a red, white and gold Christmas table setting story.
The centerpiece of the holiday table can be snowy winter woodland in which trees are made out of lace or decorative paper, placed on a white tray and surrounded by “snowflakes” – coconut-covered sweets and round-shaped ornaments.
Red-colored candles in a snowy white design story can warm up the atmosphere. Decorative details in this primary color are recommended whenever you want to bring the additional energy into your interior design.
The warmness of the orange color highlights and complements the coolness of the blue color. In other words, these complementary colors are opposites that attract each other and bring each other into balance.
