Many people are moving away from the traditional Christmas colours and now using a more modern approach by combining blue and silver to create chic and stylish Christmas colours which inject subtle beauty in an understated way.
As many modern homes have predominately white or cream walls electric blue and silver look stunning or a more formal and elegant look can be achieved by using midnight blues and burnished silver. These colour combinations are easy to achieve especially if you already have blue curtains in your lounge or dining room. For a magical Christmas adding the lustre of silver offers a chic and elegant look. Jewellers often use deep rich blue to display their silver as the colour reflects and creates a beautiful blue sheen with a magical effect.
If you prefer not to have dark blue colours teal and silver produce a modern look which can be interspersed with different tones of turquoise to really perk up the look! Use silver coloured curtain poles with blue or silver ready made curtains in stylish taffeta fabric which produce a soft and luxurious sheen which bounces both natural and artificial light to create stunning shimmering effects. The injection of bright turquoise brings this style right up to date, use complimentary coloured cheap cushions to bring the whole look together effortlessly.
These colour combinations work very well with modern interiors and design styles. If you have your tree in the lounge you can use an artificial tree with silver or white branches and use only blue and silver ornaments to create a coordinated magical Christmas scheme which suit modern homes and lifestyles perfectly.
In older styles of homes the deep rich navy and burnished silver works exceptionally well, team with blue tartan fabrics for a manor house style scheme which is sophisticated and elegant. Position floor lamps to shine onto the tree to enhance the colours and create magical lighting effects. Deep blue curtains with a matching pelmet and tie-backs offer a very classy look which can be achieved on a budget.
