HI.  i always think having a colour theme helps to make it tasteful.  You could select Green / red / gold or white for a more traditional look, or focus on some more "out there" colours such as the lime and pinks.

This year DS (2.5 years) is choosing the colours... am a bit worried, but I think I will steer him towards green and red on new (as yet not purhased) white Christmas tree... and then we'll follow the Red / Green theme to decorate the house with Christmas lights / decorations.

Good luck.

Check out this month's House and Garden magazine or other similar housey magazines.  There are plenty of themes and ideas.

As pp said, start with what colour scheme you would like.

Aqua and Silver

Silver and Gold

Red and White

Some nice ideas here

Or you could just pick a theme - Bush Christmas, White Christmas, Nature, Nurture, Beach etc

But yeah, start with a colour.
