Welcome to another Moody Monday friends! Today I thought I would share some beautiful Christmas color combinations and quick layering tricks as we begin to pull out our Christmas decor about think about decorating in the next few weeks.
What I wanted to do today was show you some key pieces and color combinations for Christmas that are not only beautiful but so easy. I’m all about easy stuff this Christmas because last year I was so busy for weeks decorating the CASA Christmas Parade Home that while so fun, was exhausting!
Below are today’s two design/mood boards with links to the product sources found directly below the image (affiliate links):
Neutral Christmas Colors
I wanted to start out with neutral Christmas colors because that’s what I’m going to do this year because it’s the easiest! Also, if you choose more “winter” decor like antlers and neutral plaids, your decor can stay up longer and through the winter. If you use neutral colors like white, cream, tans, etc… you can still add pops of any Christmas colors that you want to use and it will blend beautifully!
My friend Kelley Nan does a beautiful job of layering neutral Christmas decor throughout her home!
If you’ve never seen Kelley’s Christmas home tour, you can see it all here and it’s such a wonderful treat!
With neutral Christmas decor, you can keep it all shades of neutral or you can do mostly neutral with some pops of color like traditional red or wine or green like Kelley did last year in her home.
In our CASA Christmas Parade Home last year, in several of the rooms, we used neural colors mixed with gold and silver.
In my home a couple years ago, I used neutral colors throughout and mixed in a lot of organic like fresh greenery from my yards and faux fruits.
Traditional Christmas Colors
There are so many possibilities when it comes to decorating with traditional Christmas colors. I’m really inspired this year by all the holiday plaid pillows and throws that are out right now and it’s a fantastic place to look for Christmas color inspiration.
Here are a few of my favorite plaids with inspiring traditional Christmas color combinations:
I really love the deep olive green mixed with red and white found on this plaid stocking:
Traditional red and green mixed with navy is a beautiful color combination found in this pillow:
Black is a popular color this year for Christmas decor and I love this color mix of tradition red and green but with the addition of black found in this pillow:
Last year in the CASA house, there were areas of the home that we did decorate with traditional Christmas colors but with a twist.
On the front porch, we used red mixed and fresh greenery mixed with buffalo plaid and I really loved the combination.
Our entry way tree was also done in traditional red and green but we also incorporated lighter shades of green and whites.
Here are a few more trees that I have done over the years in traditional color combinations.
The possibilities are endless and I hope you’ve seen something here today that inspires you as you think about Christmas color combinations.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Thank you for finding these beautiful things and keeping us on trend!
I am very design challenged, but know when I see something nice and
You’re so kind Amy! I love doing this so much! I sure hope you’re inspired today with some pretty combinations! Thanks for your kind note! 🙂
Gorgeous, festive collection – thank you! I especially love the wreaths on your front door – do you have a source for the black and white ribbon with the red edge? Thanks~!
Thank you Laurie! We actually found the ribbon at a wholesale store in Houston called Craftex. It’s the only place I have ever seen this ribbon. They don’t sell online but you could call to see if they would ship to you. 🙂 Thanks for your note!
