The New Colors of Christmas

By Kim Banks on December 13, 2010

If you're like us, you grew up surrounded by red, glitter and gold during the holiday season. From Christmas trees to velvet ribbon, lights and figurines, Christmas has always been full of light and tradition. But in recent years, and this season especially, there seems to be a shift towards a more modern approach to holiday décor. We came a across a recent article from Freshome that offers suggestions for decorating without using red - the most widely used color variation during the holidays. A few ideas the article offers:
  • Focus on natural materials
  • Use greenery to bring in color
  • Add metallic colors
And if you haven't seen Pottery Barn's newest catalog, the post includes these photos as examples: Are you a fan of the new super-green, metallic colors of the season? Or are you sticking with traditional reds and porcelain Santas this year? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
