Incorporating Red & Green In Every Room for the Holidays!

Tis the season to be festive, in attitude and in style! That means it’s time to decorate the house in all things Christmas! With red and green being the quintessential colors of the season, it’s only natural we give you some ideas and inspiration on how to incorporate these holiday shades into every room of the house!!

Add greenery to every space you can. Whether it’s a miniature Christmas tree or green, luscious garland to line shelves and mantles, all of the greenery will add a cozy, wintery feel to the entire space. It will instantly transform even the most sleek, monochromatic spaces making it look a lot more festive in a matter of moments. It’ll be like you’re walking in a Christmas tree farm all December long.

Use small, red accessories to add to the Christmas theme. Candy canes in a decorative bowl, fun holiday cards lining the mantle, cozy throw pillows and fluffy blankets draped on the sofa, all create a cozy, Christmas atmosphere and add pops of colors. Mix this with some voluminous greenery and you’ve created an easy, holiday-decorated home.

If you’ve already got a red base to work from, then make sure to add the right amount of greens to the mix. The Christmas tree in the living room, a green tablecloth in the dining room or some green blankets in the bedroom will all help reduce the brashness of a red room and  create a more festive look. Add some candles to reduce harsh lighting and make everything a bit more romantic and subtle.

And if you already have a green foundation to work with, you’re in for a really big treat. Finding red accessories to make any space pop is so much fun! Bright red sweater blankets, red tall candles in sconces on the walls, red sparkly Christmas trees on the windowsills …. the possibilities are endless. Brighten up a darker room with red holiday decor or give it more personality with little festive treats! Just make sure you don’t add too much greenery in a room that’s already filled with green!

And please do not forget to sprinkle around some mistletoe, bright berry-red poinsettias, anything with sequins and lots and lots of garland wherever you can find a place for it! Incorporating red and green into every room is as simple as finding the right accessories for the right spots and complimenting what you’ve already got!
