One Tip to Add Harmony to Your Christmas Decorating
Most of the time the goal of decorating is to add punch. Perhaps brighten a neutral room with a pop of bold color, or add texture to create more depth.Then Christmas comes along with its shimmering lights, the glitz of glitter, and more often than not, more decorations than you know where to put them.Try creating harmony by focusing on one color. A monochromatic color scheme for Christmas will bring symmetry and a sense of order to your home. One-color decorating allows adjacent spaces to flow visually harmoniously into each other.
Consider your focal point. One large statement piece will anchor the room. Of course this can be your tree, or something more sculptural and unusual.
If you own a collection of small delicate ornaments add a few dynamic, over-sized, one-color decorations to the tree. These can be as simple as large artificial poinsettia blooms or bows in your one-color scheme.
Use symmetry and your Christmas decor will no longer over-power your room, your senses and your spirit.
