For something really new and unique, try a Two-Piece Christmas Wreath to decorate a double-front door this holiday season. Do It Yourself: Use a wreath with a sturdy base so it holds its shape. Fresh evergreen was used here, but a grapevine wreath will work just as well. Cut the wreath in half lengthwise with sturdy wire clippers. Use florist wire to attach evergreen clippings, fruits, and ribbons. Securely hang one half of the wreath on each door so the two meet in the center when the doors are closed. Very, very cool.

An outdoor pillar is decorated with a festive Christmas arrangement. Do It Yourself: Fill a wide, shallow planter with a mix of your choice of flowers and greens. In this case the designers used pansies, flowering cabbage, cedar, fir, lavender, and rosemary trimmed to resemble a Christmas tree. Tuck in ornaments and oversize pinecones to add color and fill in gaps. Source: Southern Living.
A large lime green Christmas wreath is suspended in the center of the living room window. It looks beautiful against the backdrop of the classic white mullion bars on the window. White decorations are used exclusively to decorate the green Christmas tree, giving this room a two-tone theme of green and white.
Another two-tone decor scheme in this traditional living room decorated for Christmas, this time winter-blue and white
A mono-chromatic approach to traditional Christmas living room decor. The contrast of the green Christmas tree is the definite focal point in this all-white living room. The white theme carries through to the Christmas tree decorations which are also all white.
The color theme here is red and white, very appropo for Christmas in this traditional living room. Again, the focal point is Christmas tree which is set apart by the color contrast its green coloring provides. Note how the color scheme of the room is carried through to the tree by exclusive use of red and silver decorations.
There’s nothing more inviting than a beautiful traditional living room decorated for Christmas.

A rustic, country candlescape is created easily by placing large clear cylinder vases on a runner of burlap, then set some of the vases right on the burlap, while you place other vases on tree stumps measuring 8 to 12 inches in height, which are then placed upon the burlap. Place a white pillar candle in each vase, then add about 6 inches of faux snow (ornamental snow) at the bottom of the vase. Surround the vases with twigs and faux pine branches, embellished with ornamental berries. These arrangements are beautiful for outdoor decor, particularly when placed near your front door or along your walkway. OR create a beautiful tablescape for your holiday table. Source unknown.
