 Holiday Color Trends Can Brighten 
Up Your Christmas 

As I shop for holiday decorations for my clients, I am seeing beautiful greens, bronze browns and burnish silvers this year. Brighten up your Christmas color with a  subdued mix of frosty green and silver. These colors will appear in the Christmas windows of the biggest retailers this year. Any store window displaying bright reds and greens will suddenly seem dated. Think of two Christmas balls, one silver and one more of a metallic gray-green. Woody and other natural accents complement these shades beautifully. These hues are less garish, and most families are loving this color scheme for the holidays. 

Christmas Metals: In keeping with the subdued hues of silver and frosty green, this year’s metal accents stick more closely to tin, pewter and burnished bronze rather than sparkling golds. The trend toward simplicity emerges in metal mesh pieces coated with uneven paints which renders an earthy texture, as well as the folklore-themed felts and tins. Even the glitters (popular again this year) lend more color than shine. The more sophisticated “superfine” is again the glitter of the day, and it’s showing up in plastic gift wrap and home décor in swirl and plaid patterns. 

Red and green are the traditional colors of Christmas, but if purple is your favorite color why not decorate for Christmas with Purple instead? There are tons of purple Christmas decorations, so you could go with something like purple and silver Christmas Decorations instead of red and green.

Do I have to rush out for new Christmas decor? While you may not be ready for the white tree with purple ornaments, keep this year’s trends in mind while browsing your favorite store or online retailer. No need to trash all of last year’s stuff. A few new pieces can freshen your whole Christmas look. A trend does not make a mandate. Stores are happy to satisfy Christmas shoppers of all styles. So don't panic if you are lacking in holiday decorations, less is more and you can add just a few new decorations to keep up with the trend. Tip: glitter spray paints and color spray paints are a girl's best friend!
