Christmas Decorations to Reflect Your Room’s Palette

Red and green Christmas decorations sometimes overwhelm a room by clashing with the color palette.  In this case, such as this beautiful dining room with salmon walls, dark mahogany furniture and gold accents, choosing the room’s colors in the seasonal decorations give the room a more polished look.  Photo1112

Use traditional greenery, flowers, ribbon, faux fruit, etc. that compliment the room in the same shade as the walls.  For a real punch, go for the direct opposite on the color wheel…in this case, blue.   Note the beautiful plates in the china cabinet.  Choose shades darker and lighter than the wall color for more interest and drama.


And don’t forget the sparkle…it is the holidays, after all!
