Here’s a secret—
I like being a little different in the ways I do things.
(That includes the way I do Christmas colors apparently, as well.)
True story: the holiday colors in our decked-out apartment right now are green, silver, gold, and blue—hardly traditional Christmas colors, but I LOVE the way they look together.
In fact, for Christmas, I’m almost always drawn to more unusual color combinations and tend to shy away from pairing the traditional red and green. Some of my recent favorites are: pink and silver; cream, gold, and green; and berry-red and white.
I know some people think it’s sacrilege to stray from the traditional red and green—that in some way, the fact that people trend towards different color combinations makes them celebrate the holiday in a lesser way somehow.
But I say, bring on the blue! Bring out the silver and pink! Go ahead and put fuchsia highlights in your hair in honor of the season!
What about you? Are you a traditionalist with your Christmas colors?
