Bold Xmas Colors

After seeing these pictures, I think Christmas decor is more about a feeling it evokes then color combinations. These colors are not traditional at all but what impact! Making the colors you have all year work at Christmas... love that!

This post got me thinking about how to blend colors at Christmastime. (also the last post as well--)
like a room that is all pale pink and white-- I never thought about it, but I guess I'd add green and gold.

Now, how would you decorate a room that is mostly pink and black? (Very art deco style)

Linda said...

Oh Yes Lisa B! It IS all about encompassing the colors that are Christmas to you...or your climate...or heritage.

We LOVE pulling out the hot Fushia instead of red and a yellower green instead of classic Christmas green....but those are the colors that herald our winters, Fushia and purple Bouganvilleas in bright bloom,Bright pink and purple and green Bromeliads. It seems natural for where we are now.

Lovely pics, girl...keep 'em coming!

Thanks for all the great comments! It is fun to think outside the xmas box! Hi Pat! The ice didnt touch us here thank goodness! How about you? We are now on for 4-7 inches of snow saturday and I'm having a bday party for my daughter. Please pray I don't get stuck with 12 teenagers spending the night lol!
