In terms of seasonal color schemes, red and green are unmatched. This timeless love story has inspired Christmas décor for many years, and it’s a Christmas tale as old as time. Naturally, additional tones and hues—such as the vivid pinks and deep purples of this year—frequently make an appearance occasionally, bringing a surprising third component to an otherwise anticipated yearly combination. But red and green are dominant for the most part. Presenting neutrals, the ideal Christmas décor option for those who prefer muted colors and are afraid of bright ones. Instead than relying too much on the conventional—and perhaps phony—holiday hues, try a fresh, minimalistic, yet ultimately joyous color scheme influenced by classic hues that are timeless and always in style. You can still use those reds and greens, of course, but the tones ought to be a little different. Richer, deeper, and more natural.
Design director at ARCHIVE Dan Mazzarini says, “You won’t feel like you have to take it down by January 1st!” which is why neutral Christmas décor is fantastic. He tells Livingetc. Moreover, it may “with just a few touches, make your entire space feel curated.” In your bedroom, buffalo plaid may seem out of place, but woven blankets and organic garlands are a continuation of your regular décor.” How can I feel festive yet still decorate with neutrals? We understand that neutral Christmas décor and intense celebration may initially seem to be mutually exclusive. That’s obviously where you’re mistaken. “Think natural and neutral when you shop for your decor,” Dan advises. “Pick out colors you’d see in pine trees, for instance – hints of deep forest green and wood tones rather than some of the brighter, more artificial-leaning options.”
The weathered brass finish of this handcrafted iron Christmas wreath goes well with ANY modern holiday theme. Given the gold tones, this might even look good as an accent piece in early fall.
Moreover, you can incorporate a few touches of conventional red into the combination. Just be aware of the way you’re doing it. Dan says, “Yes to red berries, no to red ribbon.” if not, “warm jewel tones – think merlots and plum – are great to pair with a cozy neutral palette,” he states. “I really adore using double-faced satin ribbon in copper for wreaths. Still impartial, but jovial and elegant.” With Dan’s fantastic advise in mind, if you’re feeling brave enough to embrace neutral design, check out our official Livingetc edit from the top home décor retailers below.
