Choose colors that will adorn your Christmas tree, and if you stick to one color in different shades, they will make your tree cohesive and complete. But keep in mind to choose the color that will compliment design of the room where the tree is located.
It is known that the Christmas colors red and green. Most of the trees are green, it is enough to select only red ornaments in different shades. With such a decorated Christmas tree it’s best that lights are red or transparent.
Colors such as blue, purple or silver imitate the winter, so if you're a fan of this season you will surely enjoy decorating in this way, and at the same time it will be a ray of winter in the home that you have created. Avoid mixing fiery colors with this scheme.
Metallic paint, like bronze, gold and silver are best for combining. Play with this scheme until you get the perfect mix. With this decoration it’s best to use the multicolored lights, they will do the best job of emphasizing your tree.
If you didn’t find yourself in any of these schemes, try a mix of warm and cool colors, but those that are not vibrant, use lighter shades of red and blue or green.
Choose a theme for your tree, it is important to remain consistent with the chosen theme, regardless of whether you choose decorative balls or some other shape, so the tree would look cohesive.
If you are planning to buy new decorations this year, here are a few tips:
Buy ornaments in packages, in some stores you can find up to 12 in one, and mostly they are at low price, but add to your collection some more expensive decoration.
Play ornaments and mix matte and shiny ornaments. If you select all shiny, you can end up with a Christmas tree that tingles your eyes, because it will break a lot of light.
Buy your ornaments in same size, unless you have confidence in your decorative abilities, but in any case, make sure you do not end with a huge contrast in size.
When you buy lights, make sure that they are small, because big will only blur your decoration. Select the ones that do not have sound and use the light color that goes with your scheme.
