Easy ways to add festive colour to your home

The festive Christmas season is the time of year we all decorate our homes, and it’s a great time to introduce some colour without redecorating. Here are some easy ways to add pops of festive colour to your home.

Colour theme
Since Christmas mainly revolves around food, we probably spend just as much time in our dining rooms during the festive season as our living rooms. Pick a dining table colour theme is a fantastic way to introduce some festive colour to your space.

For instance, this stunning teal and gold themed Christmas table makes for an elegant and sophisticated choice. These Zara Home turquoise wine glasses will help you achieve the look, and this set of four gold placemats will also make a stunning addition. Opt for a colourful centrepiece that matches your crockery to tie the theme together.

Cushions Galore
One of the easiest and quickest ways to introduce colour to your space is with accessories. You can keep it simple with a monotone colour, or add various complementary or contrasting accessories for a more eclectic look. We love the vast selection of scatter cushions from Arlo & Jacob that come in any fabric of your choice, making it really simple to find the exact colour or shade that you’re after.

Hang a Wreath
This indoor wreath from John Lewis is bold, bright and very modern – a great way to bring some colour to your home this festive season; but, if you’re looking for something a little more subtle and traditional, then this floral wreath from Marks & Spencer offers a more subdued injection of colour.

Hallway Garland
Extend your living room colour scheme out to your hallways with a well-placed garland. Wrap it around a staircase or drape over a mirror. Be sure to use the same colour accessories in the garland that you use in the living room to create a cohesive Christmas colour scheme.

Work with what you’ve got
Most of us already have a colour theme in our house. Whether it’s minimal white or vibrant pops of bold colour, you can always use the existing décor in your home to your advantage when it comes to decorating for Christmas. Use your current living room colour palette to match your decorations to for bringing some fuss-free festive colour to your interiors. Pick wrapping paper that complements your room and decorations that work with the tone of your existing décor.
As red is already the dominant colour in this living room, it makes sense to run with the theme and accentuate it with Christmas accessories in the same hue.

Get the kids involved
What’s Christmas if it doesn’t include the kids? Get them involved in making some paper decorations for some old-school, traditional style décor in your chosen colour. Paper chains and snowflakes are ideal for hanging in hallways and on fireplaces (plus they cost next to nothing to make).
