There is no doubt that red, green and white are the classic Christmas colours. But when it comes to interior decoration ideas, we are always adventurous, and curious to explore more colourways and the mesmerizing moods they create.

In our bid to look for new Christmas colour schemes, we scoured the look books, press shows and shops to determine what new looks are ruling 2021. We checked out Pinterest trends data to find out which Christmas trends we love the most. And we were impressed with the many contemporary colours enhancing Christmas décor.
If you thought, the Christmas tree will always be green, and the tinsel red, white, silver and gold, think again. Trees in frosty blue, white, and silver, and even dusty pink are adding the perfect winter vibe to the scene. Beyond the familiar hues, we discovered many exciting colours that bring a refreshing dimension to the festive décor. Beige, brown, yellow, orange… it is all about how you use the colours. Then there are the chic winter hues of greys, whites, and other pastels, that add a whole new look with their gradient shades. And of course, the quintessential gold crowns it all, bringing the much-needed luxe appeal to the festive season.

Most of us like the modern look even at traditional festivals.When you’re trying to evoke a paired-back, modern look, beige is the best bet. It plays the perfect backdrop for a pop of vivacious colours. Its muted tone creates a relaxed holiday mood. Combined with gold, it creates an elegant luxe atmosphere. Placemats in beige and gold bring just the degree of richness to your table. And it simply shows off other Christmas colours like red, brown and green very well. It is definitely the best blank canvas to work with to add glam and glitter. Use different textures and gradient tones of beige for better depth.
As the colour of the winter fruits like apples, strawberries, cherries, and other berries, red brings a naturally robust and refreshing energy to Christmas décor. It also suggests bold opulence and sophistication, hence, best used as an accent shade. A common Christmas colour used as tinsel to decorate the tree, or the space around the home and table settings, it rings in festive spirit like no other colour. Even as we love incorporating newer hues, a hint of red will always be welcome.
From pine cones to dried twigs and berries to rich browns used as placemats, brown is a nature-friendly hue full of warmth. It can either be a base colour for your table setting or an accent shade used with a little bit of texture or shimmer in placemats, napkins, table runners, etc. Its earthy nature is always reassuring, and nestles us close to nature. It especially contrasts well with beige and white.
Considered an aristocratic colour since ancient times, blue finds its way in Christmas décor through many shades adding a unique character to the environment. From frosty blue reminiscent of the winter season, to the moody blue to the regal blue, there are many ways the colour is used in Christmas décor to add a cool pop of brightness and class. Combined with silver or gold, it becomes even more opulent. Ornate gold rings add a crowning glory to the satiny blue napkins, elevating the luxe allure of our table setting.
A symbol of nature and rejuvenation, we can never have enough of green. It is the colour of the Christmas tree. Even as we love the trees conceived in blue, pink, white and even silver shades, there is no denying the lush charm of the green tree – real or artificial. But if you are not planning on having a tree, just a little twig of the fir tree brings an authentic touch to your Christmas décor.
With this insight into the significance of Christmas colours – new and old – and the current trends, you can create your own Christmas décor that reflects your style and personality.
