{Nature Inspired}: Holiday Color Palettes

December 19, 2011
Well, hello there color lovers... and Happy Monday! Today I'm going to keep things short and sweet because, I like many of you have quite the list of 'to-dos' before Christmas next week! Oh, and by the way... can you even believe it's already Christmas next week? Where has this year gone? In any case... I thought what better way to kick of this week than to share with you some of my favorite nature inspired holiday color palettes.



Personally, I love how these images have such a natural feel to them. They use small pops of color to highlight rather than large amounts of color. When color is used like this, you can really appreciate the color for all that it is.


Are you more drawn to shades of blue or reds and browns? I can personally see the appeal of both palettes. But I'll always be a red girl at heart, especially when it comes to the holidays!

I can see these colors looking lovely for a holiday party or even a wedding. What about you? What colors are you loving here lately? Oh, and can someone please tell me that I'm not alone in the fact that I have soo much to do before next week? Between finding those last minute gifts, wrapping and baking... this week is going to be all kinds of fun and crazy!
