Christmas isn’t only about red, gold and emerald, why not try other color combos if you feel tired of these traditional ones? Black and gold, fuchsia and tangerine, emerald and gold, all-white or pastel are amazing alternatives to usual ones. Today I’d like to share some different ideas that look whimsy and very modern: black and white. This timeless color scheme isn’t very usual for Christmas but it looks so eye-catching!
Black and white just scream minimalism and modernism, laconic and chic décor, Nordic-inspired touches. Black and white is a perfect color combo for a minimalist, modern, glam, Nordic, even industrial style, everything depends on the touches you add to the decor. If you think that black and white are boring, you can always add some colorful touches: red, emerald, gold, silver or hot pink.
Black And White Christmas Trees
Black or white Christmas trees look amazing and whimsy, you can decorate black ones with ornaments, and white with black baubles. Find a unique ombre white to black Christmas tree and decorate it with contrasting or matching ornaments for a statement. Another idea is to take a usual tree and decorate it with black or white ornaments, garlands, signs and other stuff you like. I also like tiny trees, even potted ones, decorated in this monochrome color combo. Looks too ordinary? Add gold touches and your tree will sparkle!
Black And White Christmas Ornaments
There’s no black and white Christmas without monochrome ornaments! Choose amazing ones that have patterns that you like or make them yourself. You just need white or black Christmas ornaments and some sharpies or paints, then choose an image, letter or paint that you like and make them. invite your kids to craft together and make them altogether. I’m talking not only about baubles but also about felt, paper, cardboard and wood ornaments of various shapes and looks.
Black And White Christmas Gifts
Gift boxes can be used for décor and to present gifts, of course, so you need some monochrome wrapping paper and gift tags and toppers. Buy paper or make your own, printed with polka dots, stripes, stars or snowflakes. You can also opt for graphic wrapping paper with white sides or make some chalkboard paper and chalk on it. Black and white ornaments will be great gift toppers.
You may also try a monochrome wreath, garland or tablescape with a Nordic feeling. Black and white advent calendars, gifts and a star-shaped light garland will look amazing. All of such decorations can be made by yourself or together with kids, wreaths can be crafted of deco mesh, garlands of paper, davent calendar of cardboard and so on, rock various materials and read tutorials on the web to make them for yout monochrome Christmas.
