Keep it traditional this season with the ultimate colour of Christmas. From Santa’s suit to Rudolph’s nose, it wouldn’t be Christmas without pops of red. Look to nature for inspiration and hang festive foliage that’s dotted with red berries throughout your home or get cosy this Christmas with traditional tartan throws and blankets. Red and green is a match made in merry heaven, so it’s one of the simplest tree looks to pull off too. Trim your Christmas tree with red ribbon and traditional ornaments for a classic look that Bing would be proud of.

Black Decorations

A chic take on Christmas decorating, black is a fashion-forward look that’s perfect for modern homes. This trend favours a pared-back aesthetic, so it’s ideal for minimalists. A scattering of black baubles and some twinkling white lights are all it takes to really make a statement with your tree this season. Festive fun without the fuss, what’s not to love?

Purple Decorations

The festivities just got a little more fabulous. From pretty pastels to the deepest plums, purple is the Christmas colour scheme you didn’t know you needed. Long associated with royalty, power and wealth, purple is perfect for those looking for a little luxury this Christmas. Pair purple baubles and ornaments with tactile textures such as furs and feathers to create a look that’s fit for a queen.

White Decorations

Blanket your home in wintry white for a clean, crisp look this season. A forgiving trend that’s hard to get wrong, white is the ultimate colour scheme for those who prefer a pared-back palette. From icy white to warming ivory, mix and match tones to keep it from looking flat and play with texture across everything from baubles to soft furnishings. We really are dreaming of a white Christmas.

Blue Decorations

For a nautical twist on Christmas decor look to hues of blue. From the palest pastel blue to the deepest navy, there’s a whole spectrum of colour ready to be splashed onto your tree this season. Pair blue and white accessories together to create a luxurious look that’s straight out of Tiffany’s or keep it quirky by embracing weird and wonderful baubles such as Elvis’ blue suede shoes and creatures of the deep. With baubles this good it’ll be a blue Christmas in all the right ways.

Gold Decorations

Go for gold this Christmas with a look that’s worthy of first place. Glittering golds are a wonderful complement to a wide range of interior styles from modern to traditional, and the metallic hue is the perfect base for introducing other festive colours such as red and green. For a golden glow, layer mirrored baubles and accessories and watch your space come alive as the flicker of candlelight reflects off every surface.

Pink Decorations

It’s time to get pretty in pink. From barely-there blush to the merriest magenta, there’s a perfect shade of pink for every taste and interior style this season. Prefer subtle and understated? Introduce a few pale pink accessories in your living area, think suede cushions and cosy throws paired with rose gold accessories, and trim your tree with matching pink and rose gold baubles for a coordinated look. For a fun twist on festive decorating, add pops of fuchsia throughout your space and introduce retro motifs in the form of baubles, ornaments and neon lighting.

Green Decorations

Nothing says Christmas like the sight of a wreath on the door or a snow-trimmed fir tree. Green is often the background colour of Christmas, but this year it’s shining as its own stand-out colour scheme. Rich emerald green tableware brings a regal touch to festive entertaining and pairs beautifully with gold accessories for a luxurious look. Finish the scheme with flourishes of festive foliage to create something extra special this season.

Copper Decorations

Christmas styling just got cooler. This season we’re embracing all things copper and contemporary to recreate the feel of a stylish New York loft. Lending itself well to industrial themed interiors, a copper Christmas tree is the perfect complement to exposed brick walls and pared-back accessories. Get the look in your own home by mixing and matching copper baubles with jet black accessories and simple wire ornaments. It’s a look that’s too cool for yule.

Multicoloured Decorations

‘Tis the season to be jolly, so forget what you know about coordination and have fun with your festive decor. Embrace the entire rainbow spectrum, swap garlands for pom poms and introduce weird and wonderful ornaments to make the look entirely your own. As long as it’s merry and bright, it belongs on your tree.

Silver Decorations

There’s nothing second place about this colour scheme. A frosty hue that’s wonderfully versatile, silver is the perfect choice for those that like their Christmases glittering. Easily adaptable to suit all spaces, silver pairs beautifully with other colours to add a little sparkle, or you can go all-out glam by layering a variety of silver and grey tones together. The key to getting this look right? Sequins, and lots of them.

Natural Decorations

Hygge your home this Christmas with a pared-back natural palette. Exposed woods, white accessories and natural foliage come together with a touch of sparkle to create a natural colour scheme that’s as beautiful as it is timeless. Simplicity is key, so avoid over-accessorising your space; swap tinsel for natural garlands and choose warm white fairy lights in place of colourful string lights. Finish the look with natural candlelight and cosy soft furnishings and discover the simple joys of staying home. Baby, it’s cold outside…
