The Christmas countdown has arrived. The madness and mayhem of the silly season is upon us. But there is no need to panic! Over the next few weeks, I’m going to bring you lots of idea’s, tips and inspiration for wowing your guests this year. And you can also follow my Christmas Board on Pinterest for even more ideas.
We’ll start with the colour scheme. When it comes to decorating your home, do you stick with a favourite colour scheme or style, or change it year on year? Or perhaps you mix and match with sentimental ornaments you’ve gathered over the years.
I tend to alternate my Christmas colour schemes year on year. Last year’s theme was silver and pink.
As this is possibly our last Christmas in this house, I’m leaning towards a traditional theme of reds and greens. However looking at these daring colour combo’s, I may have to rethink that plan.
Purple and red is not a colour combination that you would normally use together but it makes a very striking scheme on this image from Houzz.com
