Classic Red and Green
You can still get a fresh holiday look with classic red and green. The key to doing this well is using a modern aesthetic, in the traditional colours. Toss some red pillows and throws on the sofa and a pair of wreaths on the wall (mounted over existing mirrors) for little touches. Take it a step further by swapping out the area rug for one with red (or green) stripes, or chic holiday florals, and trading lampshades to a Christmas colour too. Displaying everyday collectibles, while mixing in a few new pieces, dress up existing window treatments with holiday embellishments, and trim the tree in a red and green colour scheme with shimmery accents of silver or white. Even within a traditional red-and-green decorating scheme, don’t shy away from accents of other colors. White and pink paper doves, silver garland, and gold starburst ornaments softly complement an evergreen dressed in red glass balls. Winter greenery is a simple yet effective way to bring the outdoors in and complete the traditional holiday design.
