We have put together ideas to help you choose the combinations and colours, from the most classic to the most original, that can be right for you!
Decorating the tree is one of the most anticipated and beautiful moments of all the Christmas holidays, but if you don’t have clear ideas on how to do it, it can also become the most stressful.
Every year the styles and fashions to decorate the Christmas tree change, and the range of colours that can be used becomes vaster and vaster, so you can understandably find yourself confused.
Let’s try to clarify what colours are always valid and the coolest ones for this Christmas season.
Red and gold Christmas tree
Gold and red are the two most used colours, together or separately, to decorate the Christmas tree, a great classic that can be extremely modern.
If you prefer balls with an opaque finish, the effect will be more contemporary than shiny ones which instead retain a traditional charm.
The combination of colours is nevertheless timeless, do not be afraid of making mistakes but be careful not to fall back into banality, perhaps adding some personal touch or a few balls of value.
White and gold Christmas tree
Another combination of evergreen colours is that of gold with white.
An idea to mix colours in an original way could be to buy a white tree and place decorations in different shades of gold on top, from champagne to more intense ones or if you like to dare, choose a golden tree and hang some white and transparent balls.
Ton sur ton is also to be evaluated.
Blue and silver Christmas tree
For a tree with a cold shade, the most classic choice is the one that sees the combination of silver and blue.
Blue offers almost infinite shades to choose from, from electric blue to midnight blue through peacock blue up to classic blue, Pantone colour 2020. All these variations could be enough to create perfect harmony, the addition of silver, while not essential, allows the blue to stand out and light up.
For an enchanting effect, choose a completely white or silver coloured tree.
Multicolour Christmas tree
Mixing several colours to decorate a single Christmas tree can be risky, you need to have an eye and be skilled to be able to obtain a pleasant result.
Are you people who love to experiment? You can also decide to insert decorations that are out of the ordinary and with a pop flavour. Travel, candy or animal-themed decorations can be for you.
Mix them wisely with basic balls for a fun and not tacky effect.
Pastel Christmas tree
The trend of recent years is pastel colours, delicate and soft, so beautiful that they are able to become protagonists even in the most lively and brilliant period of the year. And so even the Christmas trees are tinged with unusually soft colours: cerulean, cornflower, wisteria, lavender, powder pink.
They can be used alone for a monochromatic effect or in combination with each other.
Black Christmas tree
It is well known, black is the colour of elegance, and this is particularly true when it comes to clothing, but what about Christmas trees? will it be the same?
The trend of recent years is the black, eccentric and glamorous Christmas tree. It moves away from what is the classic idea of Christmas by perfectly marrying houses with a modern style and the taste of those who are not afraid to take risks.
One way to enhance it is to combine bright colours such as gold, white or silver, but if you want it to be the only protagonist, you can opt for something decidedly more minimalist by decorating your tree with only a few strands of light.
