KIMPLISTIC IDEA: Blending Your Holiday Decor

The Christmas season is certainly the time of the year when glitzy, sparkling decorations are expected and enjoyed by all! However, the best dressed holiday interiors are those that provide a sense of continuity with the year-round decor of the the rest of the house. For instance, if you have a very neutral, understated color palette in your home, a Christmas color scheme with fewer colors, perhaps metallics, such as copper, silver, or gold, may be a lovely choice. If your home is decorated in jewel tones, selecting ornaments and other decorations that incorporate those colors will bridge the gap between your holiday decorations and your everyday interiors. The main idea is that all of your home decor – even your Christmas embellishments! – compliment one another and blend seamlessly together to form one unified look.

Below are a few photos from my own home this Christmas, which, as many of you may remember, I am currently in the mire of redecorating. Therefore, if you happen to notice any “holes” or a lack of “stuff” in some places, that is the reason. My house is very much a gigantic work in progress at the moment (And yes…  the mess does happen to be driving me completely BONKERS right now! AHHHH!!!!).

As you look at these photos, notice my holiday color scheme, as it relates to the rest of my interiors. You will quickly see how all of the decor conveys the common thread of a unified color palette.

Starting with my tree topper bow and trickling down to many of the ornaments, blue and silver are the dominant colors on my Christmas tree (with splashes of red and white mixed in).

Here is a photo of my mantel. You can see that, once again, in keeping with the colors on my Christmas tree, blue and silver are predominant. However, the really important idea to note is that my holiday decor mimics my year-round interiors. Shades of cool blue can be found in the mantel artwork, as well as the interior bookcase walls and the chairs situated below.

As you can see in this close-up photo, the peacock figurines on the mantel, as well as the blue-and-white pottery and silver serving pieces, all tie together to form the overall appearance.

This white reindeer is dressed up with a blue bow, which further reinforces the unity of the overall color scheme. Notice that there is even another piece of blue-and-white pottery next to the reindeer, which connects the tree to the fireplace.

Our Christmas stockings and staircase even mimic the adjacent wall color .

NOW, GO HAVE AN “It’s So Fabulous!” DAY!
