The default color schemes associated with Christmas are red and green. Blending in some gold or silver has also always been accepted. But those default color schemes may not be what you want in your luxury Deer Valley home.
Instead, if you want to consider unique color schemes for your festive and classy home for the upcoming holidays, your local Park City real estate agents have some ideas that can spark your creative side.
1. Winter Wonderland
Lean into the cold weather season and bring the winter wonderland indoors. An artificial tree with frosted branches is an easy starting place, though you can always frost the branches of a live cut tree if you prefer live Christmas trees.
By keeping most of your decor white with silver accents, you can embrace the frosty color scheme and bring the glittering beauty of winter into your house. If you are worried about things being a little too cold with the winter wonderland color scheme, adding some yellow string lights and battery-operated candles can bring some warmer gold tones to help balance all the white and silver.
2. Peppermint Pops
If the winter wonderland scheme is a bit chilly for your tastes, but you like the wintery aesthetic, then the peppermint pops color scheme should be right up your alley. Using a frosted tree as your base, add bright red color pops to your tree.
Striped red and white ornaments are an easy way to lean into this theme, as well as for opting for other red decor pieces, ranging from poinsettia, red candles, red ribbons, red and white stockings, and other types of decor.
Try and keep your red and white colors consistent. Having different shades of red—cranberry red, fire engine red, dark red, etc.—along with varying colors of white—off-white, cream, eggshell, etc.—can muddy the color scheme. So, do your best to match your reds and whites to each other if you go with the peppermint pops color scheme.
3. Jewel Tones For Christmas
Your holiday decor shouldn’t be a huge departure from your normal color schemes. If you are more inclined toward vibrant colors, there is no reason why you can’t lean into that when it comes to your holiday decor.
To keep your jewel tone Christmas color scheme focused, choose three to four main colors to work around. In the above example, the lush color scheme revolves around the colors found in a peacock’s feather with the addition of dark purple to help balance the green, gold, and blues.
Having variation in the base colors is natural, so you don’t need to worry as much when it comes to color matching. With the right balance of gold throughout your decor as well as greenery, you should be able to keep the jewel tone color scheme from becoming chaotic.
4. Icy Blue Winter
Another departure from traditional Christmas colors—while still embracing winter—is the icy blue color scheme. For this decorating color scheme, choose shades of blue that range from a light bluish-white to the darkest shade being baby blue.
Greenery that is not frosted is the best backdrop for this color scheme, along with other white decor and some silver accent decorations.
Also, if blue isn’t your favorite shade, other pastel shades can be substituted. It is best if the colors fall on the cool spectrum to help enhance the wintery feeling of this color scheme.
5. Black-Tie Holiday Decor
A chic holiday look is the black-tie color scheme. In our example photo, the tree has been edited to look grey. However, there are artificial white trees you can use as a base and use black and white decorations.
Black-tie holiday decor can be difficult to balance between gothic and chic. Lean too much into the black decorations, and you have a more Halloween themed holiday rather than Christmas. Instead, use black as an accent for your white decor, allowing the white to be broken up with touches of silver and carefully chosen black additions.
6. Roses In The Tree
For a softer holiday look, the rose in the tree color scheme can easily stay up through the new year. The main feature is the dusky pink cabbage roses that bring a gentle warmth to this color scheme. Naturally, the roses won’t be found with your standard Christmas decor, but your local craft store should have the needed flowers to pull this look off.
Also, as accent colors, a traditionally-colored Christmas trees and wreaths make excellent showcases for the cabbage roses. If you want to add accent decor, use matte metallics such as rose gold, silver, and yellow gold. None of these metallics should be shiny, as it would be too harsh with the dusty roses that feature in this color scheme.
When you have a beautiful home, you want all your decor to reflect the beauty of your home, even during the holidays. Hopefully, one of the color schemes can help you prepare for your holiday decorating.
