A white Christmas
For an elegant and clean look this holiday, try an all-white decor scheme. With all the hectic hustle and bustle of the season, white is a beautiful way to keep your home looking calm and serene. Add a few hits of sparkle and shine with silver accents for a little Christmas glam.
Greenery and gold
Using the natural green of the Christmas tree and garlands can make a home look (and smell) fresh and inviting. But for that extra holiday sparkle, hits of gold against the green really liven up the decor - even in the smallest details, such as gold-trimmed glasses on your holiday tabletop.
For a sleek and airy look this holiday, you can't go wrong with Scandinavian design. The basic black and white colour palette keeps the space streamlined and chic, while the pops of red and green create a dramatic contrast.
Silver and gold
As the Christmas carol goes, everyone wishes for silver and gold - so why not give the people what they want? It's a classic and instantly evokes that festive spirit of the holidays. Aside from just throwing tinsel on the tree, try adding some vintage or brushed silver and gold accessories around your home. Whether it's the tray carrying cups of hot chocolate or the candlesticks lighting your tabletop, that extra touch will add much more character and elegance to your home decor.
Christmas is a fantastic excuse to go for the gold. If you love the luxurious look, but don't want to live in a disco ball, try using different hues of gold. Also, mix sparkly, shiny and matte gold accents to help create balance and texture.
As a symbol of divinity in Judaism, blue is a natural colour for Hanukkah decor. Pairing it with soft purple hues creates a bright and welcoming home for the holidays.
