Find a color palette that will make your Christmas home décor stand out

Christmas may not be around the corner but it’s definitely approaching quickly. Last month we celebrated Leon Day, which is the day that is exactly six months from Christmas Day, by showing you some ways you can prepare for Christmas. Today, we feel that it’s just the right time to visualize your holiday décor. So keep reading to get ideas on how to make your Christmas more colorful.

Find a Theme

Finding a theme for your décor ensures that your overall design is unified in some way. It may go from choosing vintage, classic, or popular themes to showing off your affinity for a certain work or literature. For instance, if you are an avid Star Wars fan, you can centralize your décor on the Star Wars universe, much like how we envisioned a Star Wars-themed Christmas tree décor. If you want something traditional with a sexy twist, why not purchase a Christmas tree to best match your vision? Treetopia’s Tango Red Pencil Christmas Tree may just be the perfect tree to suit your preferred style.

Choose a Color Palette

Choosing a color palette relates directly to the theme you choose. However, if you don’t wish to limit your design to a theme, you can always just opt for complementing colors. Do you prefer colorful décor with a classic or vintage appeal? Go for comic book and vintage color schemes. How about a neutral-toned Christmas? A nice color palette would be coffee or earthy colors.

If you’d like a white Christmas, you can set up a white tree with white ornaments to create a winter wonderland treat.

Play Up Your Choices

Once you have picked out a theme or color palette, remain consistent with your choice. Play up the theme or colors by using ornaments that best exemplify your preference. For instance, if you’d like to have a bright Christmas, go for ornaments that are shiny and reflective.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with color. In fact, there are two websites that can help you come up with your very own color scheme: Color Hunter, which uses actual photos to create different color schemes, and Adobe Kuler, which allows you to create your own palette using the range of colors available in their color wheel.
