9 stunning colour combinations to decorate your Christmas tree with

Christmas is right around the corner, and you know what that means – it’s time to get that those stockings, tinsel, and of course, the Christmas tree up!

If you haven’t already started decorating and don’t know where to start, fret not! We’ve got you covered with these Christmas tree ideas that’ll definitely have you inspired and in the festive mood.

Red and gold

The quintessential festive colours, red and gold is definitely the way to go if you want that classic Christmas vibe in your home. Think large, elaborate ribbons, poinsettia, baubles, and of course, yellow fairy lights to top it all off.

Blue, white, and silver

While blue and silver aren’t necessarily the colours that spring to mind when you think of Christmas but when put together on a tree, it really does evoke the feeling of a winter wonderland without being too cliché!

White and silver

Sure, we won’t be getting a White Christmas here in Singapore anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring one right into your home!

Opt for silver and white decorations, and maybe even a white tree instead – it’ll totally match your white home interior, if that’s your aesthetic.

Platinum

A great in-between of silver and gold, this elegant accent can be matched with almost every colour.

Platinum-decorated trees look so opulent and lavish, and they’re a great way to add a festive and luxurious touch to your home.

Rose gold

Rose gold first took the world by storm when it debuted as one of the colours for the iPhone 6S, but the hype hasn’t died down since, and we can see why.

This colour is such a beautiful hue that gives off a sophisticated feel, and goes really well with white and other lighter colours too.

With rose gold being a more delicate and feminine colour, you can also embrace that theme and go for décor such as flowers, poinsettia, and ribbons!

Purple

If your home is painted with mostly grey or blue colours, a cool tone such as purple would be an ideal colour theme for your tree!

Purple is such a versatile colour and can easily be complemented by varying hues of blue, silver, and even gold, so you definitely won’t be short on any options for your baubles and ribbon.

Candy

Dare we say, candy-coloured Christmas trees look like they’re straight out of a movie! It’s rather hard to imagine a tree like that anywhere outside of the Chocolate Factory, but let’s face it, it’s a dream come true for every little child and adult with a sweet tooth.

Fun and colourful

We’ve been suggesting a lot of tree ideas for minimalist home interiors, but if you prefer bold bursts of colours and patterns, and your home is more visually and spatially busier, these multi-coloured tree ideas are just for you!

Loud, vibrant and full of life, these fun and colourful trees are sure to add even more colour and brighten up your living space, all while spreading the holiday cheer.

Disney

There’s no limit to your imagination when it comes to decorating your tree based on your favourite Disney characters or movie!

Think of the movie’s motifs and colours, and play around with ornaments that you can get from shopDisney to create your ultimate fandom tree.

Tips on how to choose a colour scheme

Take a good look around your home and consider the colours of your walls and furniture, before selecting complementary colours that spark some festive joy.

If your home is more contemporary with plenty of beige and white, pick out holiday decorations in white, silver, and pastels to maintain that minimalist look.

In the similar vein, go for red, green, and gold hues if the interior of your home is more rustic and dark for an oh-so-Christmassy vibe.

You can also go with a monochromatic colour scheme if you really love a particular colour, but it doesn’t mean that everything had to be the same tone! Look for decorations in varying hues and tones of that one colour you like and make sure there’s different textures and patterns for a more interesting and fancy-looking tree.
