7th day of christmas: unexpected holiday color schemes

The holiday season is such a fun time to decorate and get crafty. I love it when our home is all decked out in our favorite Christmas decor! Most people stick with traditional colors when it comes to Christmas decorating--red, green, white, gold. However, it can be fun to step outside the holiday color box, and try something a little different. So, here are seven unexpected holiday color palette ideas!



Winter Berries


I love the muted, cool tones in this wintery holiday color scheme. It carries over the traditional green, but takes on a more muted red and adds a lovely winter blue to balance it out.

Evergreen & Cinnamon


This holiday color palette is reminiscent of the first, but takes on some warmer tones. I love the cozy feel to this one. Makes me want to sit by the lit up Christmas tree with some hot cocoa!

Gingerbread Winter


The blue hues in this wintery color scheme are calming and cool, but the addition of the gingerbread color brings in the warmth and coziness of the holiday season. Love it!

Vintage Christmas

These happy, whimsical colors are perfectly festive and I love them! That could also have something to do with the fact that I love those colors for any time of year.

Holly & Mint


I love the combination of the traditional Christmas red with the mint and teal colors. The contrast is awesome and vibrant!

Jewel Tones


This romantic combination of jewel tones is a unique twist on the traditional holiday colors. The addition of the gold and nude colors really adds a festive feel.

Winterfresh Christmas


Friends, I have to say that this cool and fresh holiday color palette is my very favorite. I just love the mints and blues, and then the lavender really harkens to the holidays. These are my colors. Love.

If you're looking for some holiday color inspiration, I hope you've found something here to spark some creativity. If not, hop onto Pinterest and search on "unexpected", "unique", or "non-traditional" holiday color schemes, and you'll find plenty of beautiful ideas.
