College Christmas Decor Color Scheme
To get the super cute, neutral college Christmas decoration look, you are going to want to stick with a color scheme for all the decor you buy.
Sticking to these three colors, your dorm room, suite, or apartment is going to look super bright and clean, while still getting that Christmas-y feel.
You can also throw in accents of red to make it feel more like Christmas, but sticking to those three colors will make sure everything stays neutral and clean.

College Christmas Decoration Ideas
For your door, a cute beige or neutral wreath is the perfect way to start off your neutral decorations.
The most important Christmas decoration you’ll need is the tree of course. To stick with the neutral theme, you can either get a green tree or a white one. Either way, it’ll be a perfect centerpiece for all of your Christmas decor.
Mini Christmas trees
To complement your tree, you can also buy some of these mini Christmas trees for around your dorm or apartment. These are the perfect decorations to put on a table or any open spaces around the room.
For even more table decor, these are some good options for neutral college Christmas decorations. All of these decorations are perfect to leave on the table when you aren’t eating.
If you already have frames with other prints in your dorm or apartment, switching them out for some Christmas-themed ones is such an easy way to decorate. This is super cheap to buy and makes for some super cute decorations.
If you are decorating with stockings, white or brown-colored ones will be the best to match with the rest of the neutral college Christmas decorations. You can hang these from a mantel, but if you don’t have that in your college apartment you can also just use command hooks to hang them all from the wall.
neutral wrapping paper
For all the gifts you are wrapping, using neutral wrapping paper will keep the color scheme going. I love either using a white paper with some holiday-themed patterns on it or just using brown paper. A combination of the two also looks great under a Christmas tree.
For a cheap and easy decoration option that will take up a good amount of wall space, you can buy a Christmas-themed banner. These are cute to hang up for the entire season.
If you want to complement the white wrapping paper, I love using brown paper. You can use this plain and wrap all of your gifts in it or you can even draw/write on it to make it even cuter.
The best way to make your Christmas tree stick to the neutral theme is to use all neutral ornaments. Sticking to colors like white, gold, and brown is perfect.
Try to experiment with a bunch of different ornaments too! The best trees have a bunch of different styles.
If you already have pillows in your dorm or apartment that use pillow covers, replace them with Christmas-themed covers for the holidays. This is such an easy way to decorate without actually having to buy something new.
I love using pillow covers as easy decorations. You can rotate between covers depending on the holiday or season and not have to be stuck with a million different pillows.
Christmas tree skirt
For the neutral Christmas tree, the best tree skirt color to go with is white.
However, it your tree is white, you can also get a green or brown skirt so everything isn’t the same color.
For some extra decoration, these garlands are such beautiful little touches to add.
To really complete the neutral Christmas look, make sure even your tree topper matches all the other decorations. These gold or beige toppers will match the tree and other decorations perfectly.
