Energetic Red and Cooling White – Fire and Snow
The red hue is an energetic choice. Its fiery presence can be “cooled off” by combining it with white and placing glass and metal ornaments. Red stars, scattered on the white base of the plates, create a beautiful holiday tablescape.
Speaking of the red and white combo – Santa Claus comes to mind. Snow-white beard and a red suit of this lovable grandpa rejoice us. These Santa-inspired plates are ready for the delicious cookies.
Hot Red and Cold Silver
Cool silver is also an excellent counterbalance to hot red. Silver-plated decorations and other metallic holiday ornaments sparkle due to the reflection of light, which, in combo with red, adds a touch of glamour to the living and dining room. These red-silver Christmas tree baubles also bring sweet messages – Merry Christmas, I Love You, You Are Unique…
Whether autumn or winter holidays are the festive theme of dining room décor, this maple-leaf-shaped napkin holder is a cool addition. In this decorative scheme, it is paired with red napkins that warm its metal coldness.
Warming Red and Refreshing Blue – the Primary Color Duo
Red and blue are both primary hues and thus paint a powerful picture as a color combination on the tablescape and in every other part of the home decor. The freshness of the blue color greatly “silences” the hotness of fiery red – like the meeting of water and fire. This primary duet looks great on Christmas-themed tableware as well as on the maritime-style tablescape.
