White, Red and Gold Christmas Home Decor Ideas

| |

These white, red and gold Christmas home decor ideas are easy and inexpensive ways to add holiday spirit to your house.

Every year, I like to choose a different color theme for my Christmas decorations, like the blue and white Christmas decor I had last year and the Kate Spade inspired tree from the year before. This year I decided to go in a more traditional direction…and these white, red and gold Christmas home decor ideas are what I came up with.

White, red and gold Christmas home decorating ideas

After a few DIY projects and lots of Christmas tree decorating, I’m happy to say that my Christmas decorations are finally up!

In the main living area, I decided to go with white, red and gold Christmas decorations.

It’s a traditional color scheme, that in all my years of decorating, I’ve never done before!

Well except for this red and white DIY candy cane centerpiece I made a couple of years ago.

But I’ve never used red as the main color for my Christmas decor.

Since I’m going with a traditional theme and I usually try to incorporate some flowers in my Christmas decor, I decided to use poinsettias as a common element to tie the room decor together.

If you’ve seen any of my previous year’s Christmas home decor, you won’t be surprised to hear that feather boas will also be making an appearance.  They’re one of my favorite things to use for inexpensive Christmas decorations.

And of course, lots of lights.

Of course, I couldn’t decorate for Christmas without doing a white, red and gold Christmas tree.

A living room with 4 Christmas trees decorated in red, white and gold Christmas decorations, 2 white wreaths on the windows and a white garland over the fireplace

But instead of doing just one tree, I decided to do 4!

One big tree in the middle of the windows. And 3 smaller trees in urns.

Two on either side of the fireplace.

And one at the other end of the windows in the living room.

It was a little shorter than I wanted it to be, so I made a stand for it by wrapping a box in coordinating wrapping paper.

Besides the usual store bought ornaments, I also made some gold-leaf and red ornaments (using the same process as my DIY copper leaf ornaments).

Pine cones and faux roses used as Christmas ornaments on a tree

Ribbon, gold sparkle pine cones and faux roses add some extra texture to the tree.

The red even makes a statement when the lights aren’t turned on.

2 | Wrap presents in white, red and gold wrapping paper

Wrapping presents in paper that coordinates with your color scheme is another easy way to add to your Christmas home decor.

I used reversible wrapping paper that I bought from Costco…that makes it easy since they’ve already chosen the patterns 🙂 Then I used matching ribbon to tie them up.

3 | Hang DIY wreaths

A couple of weeks ago, I made some DIY Christmas wreaths from feather boas.

Three Christmas trees in front of windows with two wreaths hanging between them.

These were hung in the windows between the Christmas trees in my living room.

And also above the buffet in the living room.

I did make one addition to the wreaths after I hung them up. I added a battery operated candle* to the center of each wreath.

The light makes the wreaths show up better at night.

4 | Drape garlands

Draping a red poinsettia garland over the top of the buffet carries the color toward the ceiling. This helps to define the focal point at this end of the room.

At the other end of the room, I used this Santa clothes line garland to do the same thing (it was so cute, I just had to use it!)

Since it doesn’t make as much of a statement as the poinsettias, adding some lights above it helps draw your attention to it.

5 | Hang Christmas ornaments in front of the window

For an easy way to add some Christmas color, I like to hang ornaments on different lengths of ribbon.

In my dining area, I used white, red and gold ribbon with a poinsettia pattern to hang ornaments from the curtain rod over the sliding doors.

As you may have seen, I did the same thing with the DIY pine cone ornaments I hung from the mantel in my bedroom.

6 | Clip red poinsettias on the chandelier

Another one of my favorite ways to decorate for Christmas is to add ornaments to my chandelier.

Red poinsettia ornaments clipped to the chandelier

Normally I hang them from the chandelier arms. But this year, I decided to use clip-on poinsettia ornaments to dress it up.

They look very festive and echo the poinsettias on the ribbons in the window

7 | Add white, red and gold fireplace mantel decor

White feather boas and red poinsettia clips used as a Christmas garland over the fireplace

Since I put trees on either side of the fireplace, I wanted to use some mantel decor that tied in with the rest of the decorations but didn’t detract from the trees.

As you’ve probably seen, I also have a TV over the fireplace, so there isn’t much space to put a big display.

So I ended up draping feather boas in front of the fireplace, and adding more clip-on poinsettias with ribbon and a battery-operated candle to the top.

Then I hung a few white, red and gold ornaments from the boa.

Now the mantel echoes the wreaths on the window. Just like with any kind of decorating, repetition really helps to create a cohesive design.

8 | Use red chair sashes and runners

Black and white chairs decorated with red chair sashes

To dress up my bar stools, I tied some red chair sashes around them. It’s a really easy and inexpensive way to add to your Christmas decor.

I also like to use red runners on my console tables and anywhere else that needs a little color.

Well, that’s it for my white, red and gold Christmas home decor ideas.

  1. WOW… I love how you’ve decorated your house. I love the idea of having so many trees in the living room. And I’m sitting here looking out the large window in my office and I think I’m going to borrow your idea of hanging the ornaments on ribbon. I’ve done something similiar before with invisible thread but I like the look of the ribbons.

    1. Thanks! This is the first time I’ve tried hanging the ornaments with ribbon (I usually use invisible thread also)…I like it, too 🙂
