I lean towards monochromatic design palettes overall-
The holidays are no exception.
There is just something so classy about whites,
and the patina of muted golds and silvers.
While I gravitate towards the monochromatic palette,
I do incorporate a splash of color where I see fit in order to enhance
My family room console table and dining room buffet
are host to my obsession of soft whites, shimmery silvers, and subtle
muted golds, but there is always that pop of color that will make it's
way into my vignettes without overpowering the original
intention of the classic monochromatic design that I love so much.
These shimmery baubles floating inside one of my creamy white
bird cages, allow for the right amount of color on an overall
monochromatic holiday vignette. The little red bird perched atop the
outside of the cage brings colorful "life" to the design.
So go ahead, experiment with a monochromatic palette in your holiday designs,
and apply a touch of color wherever you see fit. And, while nothing says winter like
soft white, shimmery silvers, and muted golds; a little color here and there
added subtly of course will give an unexpected touch of life to your designs.
