There are several different colours and decorations to use, the big question is how do you decide what décor to select? There is no definite answer, as Christmas decorating is a personal decision so some may elect for green and red décor while others may opt for a white and gold décor that conforms to the colour scheme in the home.

Probably, the easiest way to give off a Christmas vibe is to put up stockings on the fireplace. Neutral colours such as white and grey creates a calm and cozy feel, while focusing on one accent colour such as green adds a pop of colour without overwhelming a space. Using nature as decor is a subtle way to add colour, which is the case of small tin can evergreen and spruce trees.

Staying true to the overall colour scheme and style in the home is important. The season should be a reflection of the existing style in a home, which means green and red decor is not a must. Gold has been a huge trend, so there are many homes that have incorporated this colour into their home, as a result there are stockings, candle holders in a gold tone which will complement gold decor.
