{Holiday Color Palettes}: What's Your Favorite?

Holiday color palettes really are some of my favorites. And as we get closer and closer to December, I'm starting to think about them a lot here lately. Whether you're a traditionalist and love your deep green paired with classic red, or whether you're a little more modern in your decorating with colors like shades of blue or even metallics like copper, silver and gold... One thing is for sure, everyone has their own idea of what colors put them into the holiday spirit.

I personally love the palette above because it puts a new spin on the classic red and green palette by using a cool shade of mint. Plus, who doesn't love the idea of sipping cocoa on a chilly winter day?

Another color palette that's really fun for the holidays is this one! Why not mix shades of blue and green with a deep shade of cranberry red? I love how fun and playful this palette feels.

Metallics like gold and silver always have a way of looking magical during the season. But why not add a touch of red and maybe even a touch of black? I love this palette because it's subtle and yet so sophisticated.

And isn't this a great palette? I personally can't keep my eyes off of those egg nog cupcakes. YES, I said egg nog! Sounds fabulous, right? Oh, and these colors are pretty fun too! Are they not?

Want a winter palette that's a little more unique? Why not mix cranberry with shades of gray and plum? I'm loving how cozy and warm this one feels.

Now, this palette I think would look absolutely loving for a holiday dinner party or even a wedding! Chartreuse mixed with shades of green, silver and black really is quite stunning. Plus, who doesn't love a pretty package?

This palette of turquoise, shades of green and silver really is one of my all time favorites for Winter. What's not to love? Can't you imagine this being absolutely gorgeous for a snowy wedding day? Not engaged? Why not decorate your tree in these colors?

And yet, there is still something so beautiful about classic holiday colors like these. These colors make me think of family. And what's more comforting than that? Cozy, charming and absolutely festive, these are the colors that I love most this time of year. What colors do you like to decorate with during the holidays? And if you celebrate Christmas, how do you feel about white lights vs. colored lights on your tree? I'd love to hear how you like to use color during Winter?
