Green Christmas color schemes look natural and fresh. The color green depicts hope and speaks of the eternal longing for a new beginning. Inspired by nature, green color schemes symbolize the hope of eternal life. Religious Christmas is a feast of hope, featuring a newborn child as its central symbol. Holly leaves, fur trees, ivy pine branches, mistletoe, and houseplants are perfect inspirations for green color schemes. Green glass and evergreen branches provide gorgeous green hues that work well with natural brown colors, glass, and metal textures. Green color schemes are ideal for eco-friendly, relaxing, and elegant Christmas decorating.
