Fresh Color Palettes for Holiday Decorating

Were you a little weary pulling out the same old Christmas decorations this year? It may be time to find some fresh holiday colors to liven up the look of your home this season. We love that this dining room maintains a modern black and white palette while splashes of traditional holiday crimson add a festive feel.

Many of us deck our halls (and mantles and trees) with decorations that have been passed down from parents and grandparents. The heart of the holiday season is tradition, so we’re bringing you Christmas decor palettes that will blend heirloom decor with new bright-hued treasures for a chic contemporary look.

Add holiday cheer to a neutral year round porch palette with small doses of winter red and green in natural elements like berries, greenery and burlap.

Go all in with traditional holiday decorating in crimson and evergreen, but make it modern by incorporating many rich textures like burlap and flannel. Oversized weathered jungle bells take the traditional holiday motif to an exaggerated degree for a fresh look.

White and metallic pieces bring memories of glistening snow and bright treasures under the tree. Make these special pieces stand out against a wash of muted pastels. Make glossy and gilded finds glow even more by stringing around lots of warm white lights.

Sweeping swaths of gold with pink accents makes for a unexpected holiday palette. Instead of high-contrast cherry red, pairing greenery with pink creates a softer palette that looks sophisticated, and not over the top girly.
