Whites and Pastels

White or pastel walls and neutral or black furniture can handle many different colors. If the room is decorated in neutrals and pastels Christmas decorations can be a great way of adding a splash of color and enjoy brights even if it’s temporarily. Choose reds, purples, aqua, royal blue and pinks.

If your home decor has many colors and patterns white and metallics will stand out and won’t conflict with the patterns. If the decor is minimalist but bright you can add different brights mixed with silver or white if you still want a bright Christmas decor. Summery floral upholstery can be covered with white or neutral coverlets to neutralize conflicting patterns.
