Black by Design


Red might be the number one Christmas color, but a touch of black gives a room a sophisticated air.


It gives the traditional holiday decorations a dressed-up attitude.

What a great colour combination. I stick with a well-worn black, white and silver colour combination over Christmas. My husband hates it, he is always threatening to go out and by the brightest, cheesiest Christmas paper he can find! LOL!
