I’m combining two of my favorite things, color and Christmas, and sharing some of my favorite colorful Christmas decor that I’ve spotted recently. So whether you prefer traditional red and green or love a rainbow of color, these colorful decorating ideas are sure to inspire! It’s a mix of DIY ideas, simple decorating tricks, a little bit vintage with a little bit brand new, and the most festive home tours.
This Christmas mantel from the queen of color is so happy, from the wreath to the forest of bottle brush trees to the pom pom garlands right down to the pillows on the hearth. She even shares how to make this adorable embroidery hoop wreath.
Courtney of Zig and Co. created this colorful interpretation of the wall mural done by her friend. She says, “those flowers have come to life and are growing up my stairs in forms of ornaments, ribbon and greenery.”
I think I found something new to collect! These vintage tree toppers come in all shapes and colors (my favorite is the Santa topper) so there is something for everyone. I love the way they are displayed atop bottle brush trees.
Impress your friends and neighbors, not to mention Santa, with these jumbo outdoor Christmas bulbs around the front door.
I’ve also been inspired by some of the beautiful colorful Christmas home tours I’ve seen this year and here are some faves.
I look forward to Courtney’s colorful Christmas home tour every year and she outdid herself this year! I love the sled hanging from the ceiling, the dishtowels turned curtains and all the fun and whimsical touches scattered throughout her home (she even decked out her bathroom)!
I love when people embrace their homes color scheme even during Christmas and these huge tissue paper flower ornaments are so much fun.
Who’s ready to listen to the musical stylings of Frank Sinatra while they sit by the glow of this retro silver tinsel tree that really pops against the graphic blue wallpaper.
You don’t need garland or ribbon when you have a tree decked out in a mass of colorful ornaments. From the tree to the garland to the collection of nutcrackers not to mention the bar cart turned candy cart and more, it’s all so much fun.
I always love Diane’s colorful home and she has the best money saving ideas like these books wrapped in plaid gift wrap.
And you all know I am crazy about color as you can see and my mantel is just one example of the way I especially like to go colorful at Christmas.
Are you a color lover? Do you embrace color around the holidays or do you prefer a more neutral look?
