Have A Cool & Colorful Christmas!
There are so many things to think about this time of year. Gifts for the kids, school festivities, cocktail parties, family dinner menus, and oh yes, holiday decorations!
Christmas is my favorite time of year by far and I love dragging family ornaments, mantel decorations and other goodies out of their attic hibernation. But more and more, I find myself wanting to work in new things each year too - fun, modern pieces and snazzy new colors to spice things up.
Gone are the days of traditional red-and-green in every home - these days, Christmas palettes run the gamut from retro pink to sophisticated silver, teal, even black which can be stunning when mixed with whites and natural woods, Scandinavian-style.
If you're looking for color inspiration this year, start with a wedding site - The Perfect Palette is one of my favorites. I use it all the time for ideas. Check out the fun inspiration boards below that offer three different spins on red - candy apple red, red-green-gray-white, and red-black-camel-white.
I got so excited by browsing through palettes I decided to create a few of my own. So, here are 5 Christmas inspiration boards featuring fashions, gifts, decor and more - in fresh, festive shades that definitely make for a very merry holiday. Just hit "Click for more details" in each of them and it will take you to the full roundup.
'Tis the season... make it a colorful one!
