If you’ve been following along, then you know, this Christmas season has been all about compromise—specifically in the decoration department. As Lukus and I have battled between the whimsical and the chic, we have attempted to negotiate choices that please us both.
One of these areas that initially created the most strife has actually ended up being one of my favorite elements! I am talking about wrapping paper.
Let me explain:
If you have several different types of paper that fail to interrelate then your gifts, and in turn your décor, can feel a bit scattered and immature. And, on the other side of the argument, if your paper is too sophisticated it can feel boring and bland.
We sidestepped both pitfalls by setting a color scheme and then choosing fun options within it.
Our color palette was white, red and silver. From there we were able to select four different types of paper (with both whimsical and sophisticated themes). Once wrapped the boxes added to the décor, rather than detracting.
Don’t believe me? Well I have the photographic evidence:
Do you have any rules for wrapping paper?
