5 Colourful Christmas Decor ideas

There's a time and a place for tradition and many might say that time is now.

Not me.

Call me a Grinch, but I must admit that come the holiday season, I feel the urge to purge the red, white and green. Don't get me wrong, I have no beef with Santa's red suit, the crisp winter white of freshly fallen snow, and my tree is still evergreen, but I do love me a mod merry colour scheme when it comes to decorating my home and wrapping my gifts come Christmas Eve. This year I may choose all the colours of the rainbow. And I'm not alone: Maria Killam's Chilliwack, B.C home, featured in the January 2015 issue of Canadian Living, got a citrus-inspired seasonal facelift that had me shedding the dreary winter blues and feeling Florida orange-fresh!

Step 1.  Pretty paper ornaments herald in colour that won't break the bank.

If you think it won't cause rebellion in the ranks, try replacing  yester-year's yule log with a parcel cake they won't want to wait for Christmas day to tear into.

Take a few baby steps further with a trad green tree decked with a graduating rainbow of ornaments.

A tablescape of colourful accents is a great way to get everyone in the merry-making mood without making a full commitment to a festive makeover.   [caption id="attachment_12636" align="aligncenter" width="519"] image via Pinterest image via Pinterest[/caption] Step 5. Take it outside with a light-brite tree that won't clash with your interior decor (your neighbours will love you!)

If you're finally ready for full immersion into a new holiday tradition, try a white Christmas tree bedecked with a profusion of fanciful rainbow hues.
