The colors red and green remain the traditional contenders for the most recognized color palette combination of the holidays.
I’m not one who normally detours (much) from established, traditional, time honored, and proven design and decorating institutions, but there is a time and a space that calls for doing just this.
Holiday foundation colors complement home decor accents and accessories, and guide the directed holiday theme or pattern in decorated spaces.
Decorating with blue this holiday season drives my inspiration to invite this accent color to stick around after the holidays.
As it is the case in most design and decorating endeavors, color is the starting point for inspired creativity.
A new dining room paint color and a beautiful angel figurine in ethereal blue guided the decorative selections for our Louisiana French themed holiday tree.
There’s no denying the association between decorating with blue, French accents, and home for the holidays in Louisiana.
It’s a Joyeux Noël!
The power of one distinct color can inspire and transform an entire space, and when done right, can lead the way to a color aha moment.
