Decorate your home for Christmas with colour

A colour theme can be just the inspiration you need to transform your home into a festive place just in time for the holidays. Here are just a few ideas.

A classic red, white and green

Of course, we have to start with the typical Christmas colours that have gained a huge following over the years. Not only are they timeless, but they also offer a lot of design possibilities. You can use one colour to make a statement, use it in abundance, or use it sparingly.

These two images perfectly demonstrate the different types of decor you can create with the same colours. So, whether you're a lover of abundance or a fan of simplicity and minimalism, you'll have no trouble creating a space that reflects you in the signature colours of Christmas.

White everywhere!

Are you one of those people who unconditionally adore Quebec winters? Why not use it as inspiration for your holiday decorations?

Create a winter-inspired universe by using white from floor to ceiling, including accessories of all kinds: down rugs, tasselled throws, themed pillows... You'll always have a bright, cozy and immaculate ambiance, perfect for this time of year.

For an even more interesting look, add a few touches of gray, silver or even gold. This will give you a monochromatic decor that won't be boring.

Interested in a frosty decor, but white just isn't for you? You could opt for another cool colour instead, like blue.

As in the previous point, blue will benefit from being paired with other lighter, secondary tones, such as gold and white. This will add depth and richness to your decor, allowing the main colour to stand out even more.

Christmas in black and white

Let's face it: black is far from the first colour we think of when creating our Christmas decorations. However, when paired well, it can create a very interesting contrast and add a classic, timeless touch to your holiday scheme.

Whether you simply incorporate it into your tree or sprinkle it in every corner of your home in the form of various elements, your decor will be instantly transformed. Without a doubt, your holiday season will be one of prestige.

Can't decide between several colours? It's possible to incorporate several or even all of them! It's the ideal solution for creating a decor that's bold, cheerful and dynamic all at once. Just be careful not to overdo it, lest you offend the more traditional members of your entourage.

Instead of just randomly mixing colours, take the time to think about the effect you want to create. Don't flood your home with different hues without a plan.

Creating a gradient effect, as in the two photos above, can be a great way to incorporate colour into your holiday decor. Remember, too, that often just a few elements are enough to catch the eye and impress your guests. You don't have to turn your home into a rainbow.

Choose a theme for your holiday decorations

If colour restrictions don't inspire you to design your next holiday decorations, you can try following a theme instead. Here are a few you might enjoy.

Natural and rustic decorations

Transform your home for the holidays with simple, nature-inspired decor. You'll create a timeless, rustic feel that can be customized to your taste.

The key to success? Use neutral tones and natural textures and materials. Fir or other evergreen branches, pine cones, dark or light wood, rattan, cork... These are just a few examples of elements that can help you create the mood you want.

You could even use this theme to revive ancestral traditions and use food to create all-natural, biodegradable decor elements. For example, dry citrus slices and turn them into ornaments, make popcorn garlands, etc.

A floral tree... Why not?

Who said poinsettias have to be the only flowers on your tree? For a touch of originality and a break from the wintry look of the holiday season, decorate your tree with faux flowers in a variety of shades and sizes. It's certainly an atypical decoration, but oh so pretty!

These are just two of many ideas. Depending on your choice of flowers and their arrangement, alone or mixed with more classic ornaments, the look of your tree can vary greatly. So you can personalize every aspect.

Let your imagination guide you to a unique floral tree.

Balloons everywhere
