There are many different ways to decorate your home for Christmas. While traditional Christmas colors such as red and green are traditional for the rest of the country, if you live in California, you can use your creativity to add a touch of the season to your home. Consider using blue and white tones, which evoke cold weather and ice. Other ideas include using colorful trees and ornaments, and decorating with seasonal accessories.
Blue and white tones evoke ice and cold weather
Winter decor is often associated with cold weather and snow, but it can also be used in warmer climates. While the shades are similar to sky blue, Vivid Sky Blue is brighter and reminiscent of a bright October sky. The vibrant tones of this color can also be found in the logo of the Golden State Warriors, a professional basketball team in San Francisco. Although the Warriors have changed their logo many times over the years the colors remain a part of their uniforms.
In the spirit of the season, add several mini-trees to your house. Use holiday staples, such as red and white ornaments, to create a whimsical tree. Throughout the house, place a few red-and-white ornaments, such as handmade taffeta birds, to tie the theme together. Glass-covered eggs can be placed on the mini-trees. A champagne bucket can be used as a cool stand to support the tree.
Multi-colored ornaments can be used as decorations in your home. You should avoid making your home too busy by using too many ornaments. In a Californian-style home, a simple green wreath or a tree with branches will work well. If you’re worried that the multi-colored ornaments will clash with the rest of your decor, you can add a few neutral ones for a more harmonious look.
Emily Henderson’s house has traditional holiday colors like red and green, but it is modernized and updated. The white tree and ornaments are complemented by touches of blue to create a contemporary feel. Carolyn Rosenlund, another Australian travel photographer, transformed a wood stick toy tree into a lush display of ornaments by filling in the gaps between the branches with silver-colored and white ornaments. Contemporary touches are also added by the white walls and light gray marble fireplace.
When choosing a tree for your home, consider a colorful one to add a fun and festive feel. There are many options, from classic holiday colors to more experimental options. To create a festive holiday look, you can use vibrant colors like red and green. You can use white accents or ivory to break up bright colors.
A colorful tree can be as simple or as elaborate as you desire. In a small space, you can use a simple, traditional tree or something unique. You can decorate your tree with ornaments. Think about the decor of the room in which the tree will be placed, and then think of ways to incorporate the colors into your home.
For Christmas, blue and white are popular colors. A blue tree can look both traditional and modern. This combination is best accentuated with Christmas balls in contrasting colors. To create a linear balance, you can add gold icicles. You can also choose a colorful tree to give your home a modern and unique look.
Wreaths are another way to bring Christmas spirit to your home. Wreaths can be a bit overbearing. Californian interiors tend to be neutral and calm. Instead, a green or branch wreath is a good idea. You can then add neutral ornaments to the wreath.
Decorating with seasonal accessories
Although Southern California doesn’t typically see snowfall, it’s still possible to decorate your home festively and with seasonal accessories. For example, you can use festive colors such as green, red, and blue. These colors are ideal for coastal homes because they evoke cold weather.
You can also use seasonal accessories in every room of your home. For example, you can hang up colorful placemats and chargers. These are the perfect holiday decoration for adults and children alike. You can choose a color scheme that matches your home decor, and you can also use them as Christmas presents.
The entryway is another great place to go “ham!” for the holidays. Kelly Wearstler built a double-height lobby in her home and used wire to hang an Evergreen garland from the ceiling. She also used string lights and minimalist stockings to create an abstract, dramatic look.
The kitchen is also a great place to add holiday spirit. You can give your kitchen a festive look with spoon rests and holiday dishes. You can also get a kitchen mixer or rolling pin in a festive design. These items will also make great hostess gifts.
For outdoor holiday decorations, you can check out stores such as Sam’s Club for outdoor holiday decorations. They also sell Christmas stockings. You can get a variety of other holiday accessories, such as wreaths, tree decorations, and ornaments. You can also buy a lot of Christmas lights to create a magical atmosphere in your home.
You can decorate your home with plants if you don’t have a traditional Christmas tree. Norfolk Island pine, for example, is perfect for tabletop displays. This plant is easy to care for, and you can decorate it with ornaments, lights, and glitter. It’s a wonderful addition to any house plant collection.
The amaryllis is a popular holiday decoration. This flower has spectacular blooms in November and December. It comes in a range of colors, including red, white, pink, peach, and burgundy. It’s easy to grow them in pots, and they’ll last for decades with little care.
Plants make great decorations for the holidays and are great gifts for last-minute. Real plants not only give your home a festive feel but also have fragrance. However, be aware of possible allergies, and choose your plants wisely. Some plants can be allergic-friendly.
