Decor that's Harmonious + Streamlined

Here are some ideas to guide you and create luxurious Christmas decorations.

  • Blend with Your Existing Decorating Style

    If your home is decorated with in slick mid-century blue and white decorating style, country farmhouse  Christmas decor will probably look a little lost. From sleek and sophisticated to farmhouse or industrial, use decorations that suit and enhance your existing decor. Wayfair is having a sale on some of their Christmas decorations and its worth looking for something different or unique.

  • Moving Room to Room

    Do your best to choose a Christmas color palette you carry throughout the house. This will avoid connecting rooms from looking disjointed or out of place. Repeat the main decorating colors in each room. If you need to, add different accents from one room to another.

  • Your decorations don't have to be identical but it works best if the colors are the same. You can bring all the rooms together by using a common ribbon or garland style. This living room’s chilly blue-and-cream palette is warmed with pops of red, magnolia leaves, blue and red baubles with a gingham touch.

  • Color Is Important

    Blue and white might be a traditional color scheme but from pale blue, ice blue to royal blue, soft white or crisp white, there are thousands of blue and white combinations. The Christmas decorations you choose will depend on how light, deep, rich, soft or neutral your color scheme might be. Consider a crisp white room with white furniture and a few blue accents. What would create the most drama? Something with deep reds and greens or something with rich blues? Do you prefer one dramatic feature or smaller decorating items around your rooms?

  • Warm or Cool Colors?

  • Reds, yellows, and golds are warm colors. Blues, white and silver are cool colors. If you live in a climate that's freezing cold over Christmas use colors like reds, greens and golds to make your rooms feel cozy and warm. But if you live in a warmer area, using cooler silvers and blues, alone or with touches of red might be best this time of year.

  • Monochromatic Color Scheme

If you want a simpler look consider a monochromatic design choosing decorations in every shade of one single color. If you have white walls, with blue decor accents and red is your color think of all different reds you can use.

Give your table a preppy, poppy twist with a mix of green, pink, and red. Lettuceware, bottle-brush trees, and plates from Juliska’s Country Estate holiday collection create a fabulously unexpected look.

That means using rose, fuchsia, ruby, cherry, firecracker, cranberry or burgundy together in every shade for your all decorations. You can do this with every color and tie your look together using one main color, a second color, ribbon, texture or design.

French ribbons with a wired edge are more expensive with most soft ribbons but they can be used each year and the supporting wire will stay in place for the perfect bow, staircase garland or curled wreath bow tails.
