What are the best Christmas colour combinations?

(Grimm Exhibition) #1

Im planning on making some Xmas decorations. I usually like the sepia/vintage look but I realise its not very colourful and people probably prefer lots of colour.
I was wondering what your best selling Xmas colour combo is?
Red and gold?
Blue and silver?
Red and green?
Anything else?

I don’t do any Christmas themed stock, but I do have a colour scheme for my decorations at home. I like red, dark cool green and gold. I do this theme every year as it saves money :wink: For me these colours together mean Christmas, accompanied by the smell of cinnamon, oranges and pine needles!

I don’t do Christmas themed stock either (don’t really do Christmas either prefering to flee the country for somewhere warmer) but my parents go for a red/ gold/ dark green decoration colour scheme and my mother in law goes blue/ silver.

I think red, green, gold and silver are pretty standard christmas colours. There tend to be themes that develop once the shops get their Christmas items in - black and white, blue and silver, purple etc. It seems to vary year on year which ones are popular so might be worth waiting (if you can) to see what hits the shops this year and go with that.

red and green - i really don’t like the new colour schemes like purple, black, silver etc.
the traditional colours always look good.

Red & Green, Red & Gold are my 2 best sellers, traditional Christmas colours.

(Eileens Craft Studio) #7

I tend to stick with reds, greens, white, gold and silver either plain one colour or mix any of those 2 colour together.
so I might do red and green
red and white
red and silver
red and gold
or green and silver
or green and gold etc etc
I also do a lot of red, green and white together.

I’ve used all those colour combinations and have also done some more modern cards in pink/lilac and silver (pink & silver seems popular for baby girl’s 1st Christmas cards) If I have a printed image I try and pull one of the colours from that to use (not always the most dominant colour sometime using one of the less dominant colours can make the eye travel around the whole image instead of just focusing on the main part)

Red and green are the main ones I’d say but frosty silver is quite big.

Also last year brighter colours were quite popular in the decorations.
