Chromatic Christmas

Follow me at
http://www.opendoorstudio.blogspot.com for more fun Chirstmas ideas!

The inspiration was the artist Kim Parker and my mothers Art box. I developed a chroma of color on the white artificial Christmas tree by layering vintage shiny brite ornaments in a palette of color.
After completing the tree, I painted 3 whimsical trees to accompany the Art box inspired tree. My mothers vintage wooden art box decked out in the center of the room with colorful modern Christmas tree balls bursting forth. I added artful touches throughout the room for a fresh take on Christmas decor.

I don't believe there is any law on Christmas decorations. I love this, it's in my Christmas idea book. I already have a tree for each room, but I really want this too! Just ignore bad comments. : ) Merry Christmas! Have a great day! Would also look good with variations of the same color. Maybe from light to dark.

I ike the contrast in colors, the colourful theme of the tree and the fact that the tree is not Green as natural makes it stand out. I would place this type of furniture to any common room with white furniture, to make the colours stand out even more.
