The most wonderful time of the year is upon us. Every winter season, you pull out the same decorations from storage and put them in the same places they were last year. Does this sound like you?

For those looking to switch it up this year, don’t be scared to stray away from the traditional red and green!  Here are a few color schemes for some inspiration:

It might be time we take notes from Mother Nature. Brown and green will add some great earthy tones to your home this holiday season.  Using acorns for ornaments will keep the natural feel -consider adding some glitter to make them pop! With minimal color, create some excitement with different shapes, patterns and textures (for example; matte, glitter, striped, etc.).

Have you ever considered trying out a white Christmas tree? Now is the time! A white tree can make your decorations stand out even more.  Add some gold, light brown and neutrals for an elegant look.  This is the perfect opportunity to wrap gold ribbon or burlap around the tree and fill your Christmas with sophistication and warmth.  Make sure to add some metallic gold to make it interesting.

If you love the white Christmas tree idea but are tired of the traditional colors, try using different shades of a single color. This is a great way to do something out of the ordinary.  This vibrant color scheme will add life to your home and brighten up any room.  The white tree with a pop of color can work well with colors like purple, teal, navy, orange or pink.
