One of the everlasting elements of a Christmas decor, be it traditional or modern, is the Christmas tree. No matter the year, the tree is there to remind everyone that this is a time for joy, fun and happy holidays.
While most people decorate their Christmas trees for the upcoming holidays, there is no reason why you should not actually continue the decoration with the entire room or other rooms as well. For example you can easily use braided carpets or area rugs in the traditional colors of Christmas, red, white and green. You can also add various wooden accent pieces throughout the home and several wall art hangings such as quilts and painted wooden craft pieces that are reminiscent of this imposing holiday.
If you want to combine modern with traditional, you can easily do it by using a floor lamp on an area rug that gives a warm and homey feeling to the room. You can add several rocker chairs and other larger furniture pieces that will enhance the decor of the room.
It is important to keep the proper color scheme that is traditional, yet so modern during the Christmas holidays. Use various reds, such as the cranberry red, several shades of green reminding you of forests and meadows, and even golden colored items for extra effect.
