The red and green color combination is used almost exclusively for Christmas. Which is too bad, as it can look really spectacular for the rest of the year, too:
The complimentary colors are bold and brilliant, which makes them perfect candidates for grouping with white and natural materials, as seen in Kathryn Ireland's Ojai home from House Beautiful. We love this home office and reading nook that pairs red and green perfectly without it feeling at all too Christmas-y. Rather, the pairing looks perky and fresh.
