{Oh, There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays}: Red, Green, Gray + White

December 8, 2011

{Red, Green, Gray + White}

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays 'cause no matter how far away you roam... when you pine for the sunshine of a friendly face, for the holidays you can't beat home sweet home. I apologize, I sometimes just like to break out in holiday songs. Do you find yourself doing that at this time of year? For this palette, I had the idea of putting together some traditional colors with a touch of gray for interest. I think this turned out charming and absolutely cozy. I'm loving the old truck with the wreath attached to the front, the evergreen filled window boxes and I can't go without mentioning those absolutely fun red wellies.

So what do you think? Are you liking how red and green pair with gray and white? I think that this is an absolutely perfect way to use traditional colors. The gray adds depth and an unexpected uniqueness. While the overall feeling gives me all kinds of warm and fuzzy feelings. Definitely makes me happy to be home for the holidays! Plus I'm a huge fan of Winter weddings and these colors would make a pretty perfect Winter palette if you ask me.
