Happy El­e­gance

Chic & Country - - Styling -

A glam­orous com­bi­na­tion of met­als and warm colours create an un­usual Christ­mas colour pal­ette that de­fies tra­di­tion.

Sooth­ing En­vi­ron­ment

Less ag­gre­sive than red, orange en­thuses a more peace­ful and calm en­vi­ron­ment and so if you tend to feel stressed at Christ­mas, choos­ing a more sooth­ing colour scheme can help you re­lax. Orange is also the colour of hap­pi­ness and cre­ativ­ity and so it brings the right spirit to the Hol­i­day Sea­son!

Here the pair­ing of neu­trals with touches of orange on cush­ions and orange flow­ers cre­ates enough con­trast but does not over­whelm the senses. Orange is also a warm colour that tones down the cold met­als and com­ple­ments the can­dle light and the shine of the or­na­ments.

Green touches

Add green­ery here and there to fos­ter the nat­u­ral feel. Fir branches and eu­ca­lyp­tus will also fill the air with a pleas­ant win­tery scent.

Nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als

Nat­u­ral tex­tiles such as linen and wool have been com­bined with vel­vets and sheep­skin rugs; Wicker is present in the lamps and bas­kets dot­ted around.

Or­na­ments

On a large tree make sure you use large or­na­ments and to create har­mony, choose colours that match the colour scheme of the room.

De­tails

Dec­o­rate with nuts, can­dles and pinecones to set a win­ter scene.
