This colour palette of creamy grey and white for Christmas is a little more visually interesting than something all white. The creamyness of the white is so warming and paired with the soft greys can look completely modern or completely natural.

Add decor in these colours to a raw wood table top or a real pine tree for the latter. Or pair it with white and plenty of sparkling tones for something modern.

The classic gold and black of this colour palette won me over. Perhaps we’re more used to seeing this colour combination on New Years Eve than Christmas, but really it can work for any celebration. The bright cranberry lip adds a pop of colour to the other monochrome (albeit glittery) tones of champagne and charcoal.

I’ve always loved the combination of bold cherry red with a softer, duck egg style blue and I love how the combination turned out for this Christmas colour palette. Red is already a festive colour and adding the softness of blue is unexpected, but beautiful.

Today’s Christmas colour palette of teal and gold is somewhat of a modern take on green and gold but I fell in love with the richness of the teal combined with the different shimmering golds. From bright metallic, to something more aged – it provides a spectacular contrast.

You could go completely glitz and glam with this colour palette – a gold sequin table cloth with a teal table runner. Or something more understated by using a mix of teal and gold centrepiece details (like candle holders) on crisp white linen.
