With a chill in the air, the smell of gingerbread and the sound of carols, the season of all things merry and bright is almost here. Christmas is a colourful festival and apart from the traditional red, green and gold, almost any hue can create a beautifully decorated home for the holidays.
When deciding on a colour scheme for Christmas decor ideas, focus on the colours you have in your home year-round and select complementary colours to bring out that seasonal vibe. For example, if you have a beachy colour scheme, opt for decorations in blue, white and silver hues. This will not only match your existing home decor but also evoke a feeling of winter without it being a Christmas cliche.
If you’re looking for some wall colour inspiration for the holidays that will look great throughout the year, these metallics, neutrals and bright, unexpected colours are just as festive and look so much more fun. We have curated some inspiring wall paint colour schemes to make your home look like a winter wonderland.
For a sophisticated colour palette, incorporate hues of blue paired with green and silver accents. Paint your walls in rich blue colour. From icy aquamarine to teal blue, this colour is surprisingly festive when paired with traditional festive colours. Complement a blue wall with a green Christmas tree and glass ornaments in varying shades of blue.
Christmas has never looked this classy! Black and white might not be a popular colour scheme for this time of the year, but when styled well, it can be very warming and festive. Try adding twinkling fairy lights or a grand chandelier for some sparkle in a dark room. Go for a white, bushy tree to complement the white wall colour. Add in accents of black with decor elements and furniture.
Warming hot chocolate
There’s nothing quite like a delectable mug of hot chocolate on a cold, winter day. Now, imagine if this comforting drink took over your living room! Pick a deep chocolate coloured wall paint for your space that is sure to give it some warmth and up the cosy quotient.
Introduce jewel tones
Create a captivating Christmas scheme with jewel tones. If your room is neutral, an accent wall or wall painting will look great throughout the year. Go for rich jewel inspired tones like emerald green, sapphire blue or ruby red. Or opt for gold or silver hues as accent tones on trimming and moulding on the wall to create a sophisticated look. With colours so royal, the possibilities are endless!
There is something mesmerizing about snow during Christmas. However, dreaming of a white Christmas is almost impossible, unless you live in North India where everything is snow-clad around this time of the year. The good news is that it is easy to mimic the snow with wintery white wall paint colours. Decorate the space with some twinkling white lights and charms to add in the festive feels.
Pink and green
For a unique festive colour combination, pink and green looks fresh, modern and super fun. For a boho vibe, add in some natural greenery, rustic textures and simple and beautifully created DIY decorations.
Traditionally associated with mystery and magic, hues of purple can add warm and glam to your holiday decor. A great alternative to traditional green and red colours, purple is a great choice for a cosy setting.
We, at Berger Paints India, wish you a Colourful Christmas!
