Using Color to Enhance Your Christmas Light Decorations

Color Makes the Mood

Color has an amazing ability to evoke emotion and create mood.  Using color to create the feeling you want your home to emanate for Christmas is easier than you might imagine.

Using Color to enhance your christmas light decorationsTake elegance for example.  Shades of gold and ivory together can create one of the most elegant Christmas statements.  Simply mixing these two colors in your Christmas light decorations will give you the antique feel of sophisticated holidays of years gone by.  Remove all the bold color from your decorative scheme and the feeling is not only elegant, but soft, calm, quiet and sophisticated–perfect for chic, grown-up adult parties.

Need a livelier scheme?  Simply add some red to your gold and ivory decorations and suddenly your home takes on a bolder and more contemporary look.  Check out this Christmas tree and see how the color changes your reaction to the photo.
