Forget about red and green, here's why blue is the colour for Christmas

We love traditions and what’s more traditional than a red and green Christmas right? It’s festive and it’s familiar but what if we told you that this year, Christmas is going to be all about individuality. Having the choice to select a unique or different colour scheme is a fun one, so how about the colour blue? We know what you’re thinking but just hear us out. Blue represents both the sky and the sea, and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, heaven, and intelligence. The colour blue has positive effects on the mind and the body. Could this be the reason why trend forecasters have had their eye on the colour since 2017?

A mystical opulence in elegant blue-green was one of the festive trends at this years Christmasworld event. 'Splendid history' is the Christmas theme that met with the most positive response at Christmasworld. A surge of green and dark blue shades whooshes into the Christmassy winter wonderland in colours originating from the oceans, precious stones and minerals. The beauty of the colour blue is that it still shines alongside the traditional Christmas colours; gold and silver. Warm gold makes an opulent scenario; silver creates elegant accents. The overall result is a mystical picture with a fascinating charm, which is elaborate in style, luxuriously arranged, and interpreted in a modern way.
