I love the concept of a "color story," especially when it pertains to a decorative statement. The holiday season is one of the only times that most Americans decorate their house (or at least a main room), changing the overall feel of the home. I prefer an array of whites, while others love that traditional red, green and silver feel.
One of my favorite Christmas color schemes comes from a sweet Danish home found on From the Right Bank. Le Journal de la Maison profiled the home with its regular decor (view more photos here), and I can't quite decide which way I like it better!
The holiday colors in this space are complementary to the light, Danish design, with dashes of dark maroon and evergreen peppered between vast expanses of bright white, mocha and olive. Just enough dark to balance the brightness of the rest of the space. It feels like a little Birchwood forest in the winter. See more photos of the home all decked out for Christmas on From the Right Bank.
What is your "color story" this year?
