Christmas seems oh so far away as I write this in early November, and though it may be the last thing on our minds right now, stores are already rolling out mounds of red and green holiday decorations. While it’s tempting to reach for those colors, consider this: Christmas doesn’t have to be a red and green holiday.
It might seem daring to opt for blue instead of green or to try out brown instead of red, but if you want to wow your guests this season, try experimenting with one of these alternative color combos.
We have decided that at the end of November it is time to write some lines about the forthcoming holidays. The Holy Night of Christmas have always charmed us with its coziness and family gatherings and when we want our homes to be prepared for all the guests or we simply want to make a comfortable atmosphere for us alone, we’d better have a look at some real inspirations. We have collected just the right examples of an impressive Christmas decoration ideas.
Usually, Christmas interiors consist of the traditional red and green colors. Why don’t you think outside the box and find the richness of other colors that can recreate the amazing holiday spirit of Christmas? For example, blue and brown are a great substitution of the conventional palettes. You can also experiment a little and find the proper color balance for your home.
Blue and Red
Here it is! A gorgeous Christmas tree in blue colorful accents! Don’t you love it? The vibrant blue nuances complete the traditional red ornaments, thus adding a fresh and unexpected touch in the interior.
Purple and Red

Brown and Green
Some of us love living in classic interiors. In case you are that type of person, you should definitely think about brown variations of your Christmas decorations. The earthy palette brings natural and elegant look that corresponds great with beige walls, for example.
Blue and Lime
Wow, what a tree! It may seem a little bit overloaded and because of its appearance it needs simplicity surrounding it. It should stand out as an only colorful accents, as a focal point in a room of simple lines and furniture. We bet, that you haven’t recently seen a Christmas tree with feathers at the top.

Red and Lime
You can convince yourself how confident these two colors complete each other’s brilliance. In this example the red natural mantel decoration exist in a perfectly balanced harmony with the lime stockings beneath. A red stocking in the middle breaks the monotonous row and adds a splash of diversity.

Who could ever suggest that pink could be the main colorful accent in a Christmas interior? Believe it or not, it is a great color! A great vibrant and joyful nuance that recalls positive emotions and funny moments. Look at this splendid explosion of colors…and monkeys….

The interesting part is that somehow such kind of vibrant colorful composition fit very well in classic interior design styles, for example.
