The holidays bring out my creative side especially when it comes to color and pattern. I have been decorating for long enough to know that when you think outside the box with color the pay off can be big. Typically I find at least one inspiration piece per room and go from there. The inspiration piece for my holiday bedroom this year is a green + navy plaid throw I found while perusing the web last weekend. When i saw it, it was love at first sight. Then I saw the price tag, geez! Thankfully I found a coupon, it eased the pain enough for me to take the plunge.
So the plan is to keep it simple. I am going to use my existing pieces, add evergreen + a few seasonal accessories. When decorating for the holidays you don’t have to switch out everything and you certainly don’t have to use red and green. The nice thing about traditional holiday colors, if you separate them, they go with just about everything. Green works with plum, blush, navy, black, tan, etc.. Red can work with black, cream, whites, soft pink tones and metallics.
Just take a look at how I have used color through the years when decorating for Christmas…
