Holiday 2012: Color Direction
It’s that time! I’ve been waiting for it, and it’s finally here – Holiday decorating time! I spoke last year about decorating ‘themes’ and although I don’t like a lot of kitsch, I do think that establishing a theme helps maintain focus when overwhelmed with possibilities. In the past few years, I’ve taken a rustic, woodland approach and although this year, I’m not making a big departure from that theme, I do have a swing in my color choices.
My theme (if you will) this year is Woodsy Gilded White. I want to use a lot of white, but not in a fancy way. The theme will utilize textures like felt, fur, and birch to create layers of cream and white and the ‘gild’ will come in the form of rich browns and metallics.
The whole look will be grounded with woodgrain and green (the tree) to keep it from getting to formal or serious. Gifts wrapped simply in solid colors will further reinforce the color scheme.
I’m so excited to share my projects that support Woodsy Gilded White over the next few weeks. I’ll have a mixture of hands-on projects, really simple style (that anyone can do), and some tips, treats, and ideas for a perfect holiday! Get excited!
Now, how’s that for a happy Monday?
