a monochromatic christmas...
7 Dec 2016
You know I love color, but as a fun twist to typical holiday colors, we decided to create a different kind of Christmas today. We styled our room in black, white, and gold. Here are some other monochromatic details you can bring into your home for the holidays to take you all the way to New Year's Day!
By the credenza, we created small seating areas on both sides with a chair and an ottoman on the other. We placed pillows on the floor to create more comfy seating nooks for your guests and a casual area to open gifts on Christmas day.
For smaller spaces, instead of using a standard 6 ft tree, we decided to decorate with smaller trees styled on top of a credenza in the living room. And, since it's hard to find black and white ornaments, we made the ornaments monochromatic by filling clear ornaments with black sequins, white sequin, gold glitter, and black and white pom-poms.
We also added height to some of the trees by placing them on books and then using white faux fur fabric to cover them as a tree skirt/tablecloth. By stacking them at different heights, it offers more visual interest than having them in a row straight across.
We love that you can carry this color scheme straight into New Year's Day. After Christmas, the credenza gets switched up with gifts around the trees to a bar buffet area for your New Year's Eve party!
