If you are planning to redecorate a room, you may want to consider how the design fits into your seasonal decoration all year round. It sounds counter-intuitive. After all, it is customary to just throw a seasonal decor in the room style that you already have. Why decorating the house all year round would dominate the house?
But if you stop thinking about how your overall room colors work in relation to your seasonal decoration, you can take your home to a new level around the holidays. For example, you can choose a warm color scheme if you prefer the golden Christmas decoration, so that the bright golden shade does not collide with too many other colors in the room. Or maybe you have red spots around the room to combine with different holiday items.
Another option is to find decorations for decorating holidays that work with the room styles you already have. That way you do not have to redecorate rooms completely, if that is not something you want to tackle. Look below to see how different color schemes for the holidays work with different general room designs.
Seasonal decoration in red
Red is of course a mainstay for seasonal decoration. Together with green and white, the three form the traditional colors associated with Christmas. Red is a favorite because it just pops, making it a good option for an accent color during the holidays. In addition, red appears in many seasonal decor articles, from the red suit of Santa Claus to the nose of Rudolf.
Think of subtle or daring ways to have red in your room all year round. That way it will be easy to fit into a variety of seasonal decor items. You could paint an accent piece, have a bright red chair or choose a daring whole red color scheme. Look below for some holiday color schemes that accentuate the red colors in the room.
Seasonal decoration in green
And then there is the other main color of the holiday: green. Green is easy to integrate into a space around the holiday, because it is a natural addition in the form of evergreen trees and garlands. Many holiday items also have red and green, such as Christmas cushions.
So a good option to give your home a cohesive look around the holidays is of course to have a number of permanent green fixtures. You may have green furniture, green branches or even green accent walls. Look below to see how color schemes for green holidays work with the overall design of the room.
Seasonal decoration in silver
Another favorite color scheme for seasonal decoration is silver. From silver bubbles to silver snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, silver gives a cool, wintery atmosphere. You also have many more options with silver for your overall room design. With silver you want to make mistakes on the side of light and neutral colors. That way, the silver does not have to compete with sharper colors to stand out.
And because light and neutral color schemes are so popular, you may already have the perfect palette to decorate these holidays with silver. Look below to view some great silver color scheme & how they work with the rest of the room.
Seasonal decoration in gold
Another favorite holiday decoration is gold. It gives a look of lush holiday richness, making it a favorite for decorations in the decor of a holiday. Gold, however, can be a bit more difficult to simply throw in a room. It works best against warm colors that are already present in the room. In this way, the golden, seasonal decor elements look like they belong, instead of something that you just thrown in during your vacation. Below are several styles where gold naturally fits into the design of the surrounding space.
