Christmas is almost here and most people already have their home decorated (if they celebrate Christmas). However, for those who wait until the last minute or feel like you want to add a little more Christmas spirit to your home, these quick tips will help you make your home look more festive. Below are some ideas on how you can add more red and green to your interior décor in the spirit of Christmas!
Colors in moderation and on a smaller scale
When it comes to colors in home décor, red is a passionate, warm, and aggressive color while green is a relaxing, soothing, nature color that can easily turn into one that is overwhelming if it is used in excess. The key is to use colors in moderation so that it gives a sense of balance and harmony to the space. There are simple ways to add Christmas colors to your home on a smaller scale without having to paint your walls a cherry red or apple green which is a quite a bold move even for someone who loves color!
Add splashes of red or green to your window treatments. You can even add Christmas patterns or create stencils on your drapes. Here is a fun DIY project on how to stencil your curtain panels.
Pillows and Throws
You can warm up your space and spread some Christmas cheer by using red or green accent pillows and throws. The colors will go along with your Christmas décor and look festive. Adding a mix of plush fabrics and simple patterns will make your space more cozy and inviting.
Bed linens are another easy and inexpensive way to kick up the Christmas spirit in your home. You can use solid red or green and add stripes or floral prints in various scales to bring texture to the space.
You can also add Christmas colors with fresh flowers as a table centerpiece, a table runner with Christmas patterns, place mats, tablecloth, and dinnerware. You will be surprised what an impact flowers can make when used appropriately.
Decorate the wall above your mantel by using red and green plaid wallpaper or wrapping paper to create artwork!
To add a little Christmas spirit to your bathrooms, you can place red and green hand towels, bath mats, soap, shower curtains, and small accents in the room.
These ideas are easy and inexpensive ways to add red and green Christmas colors to your home decoration.
