We’re all looking for fun new holiday decor ideas to bring color to the holidays. From table settings to door decorations to Christmas trees, here are 10 ideas that will make your holidays shine — in living color.
A Sign of the Season
If guests are coming to stay, create a welcoming room for them with colorful linens and a cheery sign proclaiming the holidays have arrived. Set out holiday towels in the guest bathroom, along with a basket filled with water, snacks and toiletries to make them feel right at home.
A Snow-Inspired Table Setting
In this pale blue dining room, the wall color is the main event. If you have a space where your color scheme reigns supreme, let your holiday decorations take their inspiration from the seasonal snow and twinkling stars.
A Silver-Bells Kitchen
Don’t let a small apartment kitchen stop you from bringing the holiday love! Hang ornaments from the cabinets and fill the space with metal bowls and greenery. At night, the ornaments and metallics will cast a warm reflection.
A Twinkling Little Tree
Another tip for small-space dwellers: Tip a tiny tree into a vintage urn. Then add a bright, cheerful mix of ornaments and gifts. Your decorations may be small, but they’re mighty.
A Festive Mantel
Celebrate the countdown of Hanukah nights with gift bags on the mantel. The traditional blue-and-white decor brings feelings as cozy as the candle glow.
A Cheery Bottle-Brush Tablescape
A forest of bottle-brush trees will bring smiles to their faces when it comes time for the holiday meal. Pair the festive table setting with a midcentury modern white tree for a Christmas you’ll always remember.
A Color Block Christmas Tree
If you organize your clothes or books by color, you’re going to love this color-block Christmas tree crowned with a spray of gold ornaments. Pairing a red tree skirt with the pink-and-red ornaments in the first row keeps your eyes climbing to the top.
A Festive Front Door
Bring natural color to your front door with a berry-sprigged wreath. Then welcome the season’s first snow with handmade snowflakes, one for each window pane.
A Colorful Holiday Table
Use extra ornaments, seasonal greenery, and lacy candleholders to set a glowing table for Christmas dinner. Pick up ornaments at flea markets, antique stores or after-Christmas sales, then store them in plastic bins or cardboard boxes to make them easy to access.
A Cozy Place for Cards
Holiday cards bring their own color, memories and fun. Open them up to for the world to see (and read) by hanging them on a garland. Greenery with ornaments is a classic option, but colorful swags of ribbon work beautifully, too.
