Guest Picks: A Green and Red Christmas

I lately re-watched Home Alone, a film that has become quite a Christmas classic. With a fresh outlook of family members and the holidays, I could not help but notice just how cleverly the set designers worked to pull on the quintessential Christmas colours into the McCallister family house. I thought it may be fun to discover ways to incorporate red and green into my own home, such as the holidays and beyond.

Burke Decor

Damask Wallpaper in White and Greens – $65

The McCallister family had distinct walls decorated in red and green. This classic white and green damask wallpaper transcends the seasons, but it will surely add to the Christmas feel, no matter what room you’re in.


Vintage Style Green Fleur de Lis Message Center by Arcadian Cottage – $75

Hang this up and keep everything organized! I adore its vintage style.

Benjamin Moore

Dinner Party Paint

In every house I have owned, I have always needed a red room. It is hot, it’s lively, and it is inviting. I envision that the McCallister’s would love this shade, Dinner Party, from Benjamin Moore.


Folio Kiwi Leather Side Chair – $249

Who would not love to gather around the Christmas dining table a little longer in these kiwi leather seats?


Brasserie Red-Banded Dinnerware Collection – $176

The bold red stripe with this Brasserie tableware set is ideal for casual vacation entertaining, but its own cheer can extend past the Christmas season.


LINNARP Bookcase, Red – $249

This is the ideal home for your own books and knickknacks, as it comes in a joyful color that screams”Ho! Ho! Ho!”

Warmth and classic lines make these red cabinets the announcement within this kitchen.

On the other hand, there’s something calm about a green kitchen.

Fast forward a couple of decades, along with the Home Alone set designers will certainly have integrated this forest green iPhone cover!

Pottery Barn

Roman colors work so well in kitchen spaces. I really like that this one in a French stripe has a vintage feel.


Red + White Christmas Cactus – $59.95

Even people that have less-than-green thumbs (like me) will be able to maintain this Christmas Cactus living. If it produces red blooms in December, it’s an instant holiday feast for the eyes.

I would really like to begin my day with hot oatmeal in these beautifully speckled bowls.


Home Styles Create-a-Cart Red Kitchen Cart with Stainless Steel Top – $394.99

With a stainless steel top and added touches like a spice rack, this soda of red will be a welcome function surface in the kitchen.

Bring a touch of retro chic into the kitchen using these industrial pendant lighting in a bold crimson. Can not you see this hanging around the kitchen countertops?

Wall art is crucial. I love these simple dots (do not they look like ornaments?) In this bit by Tom Judd.

West Elm

Little Rectangle Lacquer Tray, Cherry Red – $29

Poor little Kevin McCallister needed to eat TV dinners if he was home alone. However, when he had an adorable tray, it would likely make the job a little easier.
