Marvellous mauve
Warm mauve, soft silvers and hints of glitter will make your home dazzle during the holidays. Add violet toss cushions to a sofa and incorporate organic elements like birch branches and pine cones for a more rustic, woodsy feel.

Ruby reds
If you love decorating with red, try pairing it with hints of frosty blues this holiday season. This colour combo will give your home a burst of colour, especially against white decor accessories or dishware. A simple red ribbon placed down the centre of a plain tablecloth is an easy and inexpensive way to add festive colour to a tabletop. Wrap ribbon around flatware or use ornaments attached to name tags for playful place settings.

Wintry whites
An airy and light palette looks great in any home. Skip traditional reds and greens and decorate with white and silver toss cushions, decor accessories and hanging ornaments. Place beautiful white bowls or trays filled with ornaments all over the house to continue the wintry white theme.

Bright pastels
It may be winter outside, but who says your Christmas palette can't represent the colours of the summer season? Replace a red and green colour palette with hints of citrine and fuchsia. Fresh fabrics and bright bursts of colour give your home a cheerful and summery take on classic holiday decor. Choose chinoiserie and fauna prints over traditional bells and angels, hints of bright turquoise to add that pop of colour to the dining table and a rainbow of colourful ornaments to fill your tree.
