Top colors for your Christmas Tree


They say your whole year is going to be in the spirit of your Christmas Eve. For good omens, everyone in the world is decorating their Christmas tree, their homes, and front yards. To decide what your year is going to be like, it is important to choose what decor your Christmas will be like - which colors and which materials you will use.

If you are looking at a wealthy, elegant 2019, then you should go for gold. Golden decorations, ribbons and twinkle lights will make classy omens for your next year. For purity, beautiful innocence and nostalgia for snow, white snow dust on the branches of your Christmas tree, along with some frosted pine cones will make your evening and the whole year very special.

 

Christmas tree colors

 

Frosted branches are well combined with woven brown ribbons, which give your tree a rustic and beautiful look. Perfect if you are looking for a winter idyll for your holidays. Earthy touch to your wraps underneath the tree or a few handmade baskets will make this picture complete and perfect.

Maybe you are looking for a country look, which expresses gratefulness and peace in your family. Great tree to maintain your harmony would be warm red ribbons with berries and traditional decorations, handmade and full of love.

For those of you who are always seeking sensation and glamour, the color of your tree should be driven to purple or royal blue, but either color you prefer, it should glow with a million twinkle lights. This will remind you every day over the cold winter that you are up for a fabulous year full of excitement and style.

For modern couples in 2018, we recommend urban and hype tree, plastic and geometric, to fulfill your artistic and stylish desires, fit in any space you want it, colored in black, with subtle golden shapes over it. It is minimalist, elegant, and very contemporary.

If you are rather traditional and especially a family with children, green tree with a lot of shiny red and pink decorations is what will make the best memories for your children to anticipate Santa Claus for years to come.

Finally, for you who admire the tree's natural beauty and love the wild world, you should keep the tree in the perfect spot where all its green can shine with a very minimalist twinkle, preferably yellow or golden, or light blue, just enough to highlight the tree's arboreal divinity.

Winter Wedding Colors We’re Looking For


Trends in the wedding industry tend to change often and when you’re getting married, the time of year will most likely reflect the season and the color of that season. It’s very important to create an atmosphere that adds personality and style to your winter wedding and using color is the perfect way to do this. It’s not always just as simple as saying you’ll use one of two colors you like, there are hundreds out there that may look better than others, especially when the snow is falling and your cold outside. Darker colors are what we would recommend in general if you’re having a winter wedding, this goes for bridesmaid dresses and everything else. You’ll find that people tend to wear darker colors as it’s colder and duller in the winter season, this doesn’t mean to say your day is dark and gloomy though, the colors simply add to the beauty of the day.

Rich Purple

Coat your wedding day in the majestic color of rich purple, it’s so complimentary for different figures, but it also makes a beautiful tie and groomsman color too. You can decorate your tables and ceremony in this purple color too add a little royalty to the day. The richness of the dark purple color is sure to add some mystery to your day, but it works well even if the weather outside is frightful. It’s the perfect complimentary base color to accent colors like grey and white and will be a perfect match with wedding dresses. Perhaps also add pale lilac for a softer scheme for your wedding day.

Muted Berry

Contrast a dark ivy with the winterberry colors, and you could have yourself the best and most beautiful winter wedding there is. Berry colors are ideal in the fall months, but when it comes to winter, people forget they even exist. Yet, if you’re willing to put them with some metallic colors such as champagne or ivy, you could have yourself a wedding you’ll never forget. This is even better for winter weddings taking place near Christmas as berry colors are all the trend around this time. The muted berry scheme contrasts well with the accent metallic colors to create a playful delicacy many brides only ever dream of. Plus, muted berries always look amazing for mother of the bride dresses!

Frosted Pastel Gray

While we often associate pastel colors with summer colors such as blush pink and peach, these colors work well with a winter feel too. Make your wedding the ultimate wintery vibe by adding duskier colors such as purple or gray to make it everything you’ve ever wanted. Pastel gray colors are perfect for the frosty days where the snow is falling meaning even if your bridesmaids wear this style and you use it as your base color it will work. Add accent colors such as soft pinks and darker grays to add even more dimension to your wedding day. However, make sure you add some brighter colors in certain places as it can seem dull if you use dark colors everywhere. We would recommend possibly a purple or pink color to add a little light into your big day.

The Color of Love Through the Artistic Eye

The Color of Love Through the Artistic Eye


Love is most often associated with the color red. Be that by conditioning of incessant advertising or that we are drawn to it by nature. Secondary to red is of course pink, in almost any level of saturation.

Share this Post Pin It

Red is one of those colors that possesses the strongest Ying and Yang of its theoretical definitions. Between love and hate, rebirth and death, the human relationship in any combination, could literally be summed up in the meaning of the color Red. Pink has what I would describe as a temperamental scale, more based on softness versus loudness than the extreme left or right end of the spectrum.

"Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love." - paper-leaf.com // COLOR THEORY poster freebie

As we know, colors can generate a wide variety of emotions. Red might be the most diverse and along with pink, a tag-along little sister, many other colors in tow can lend a visual message of love a great big pop!

Falling in Love by Etsy artist,  DJEMBE & CANVAS

"Cranes represent longevity and grace. The flocks ascend our champagne symphony, where love is blessed upon those who simply believe." - posted by artist at the listing

The artist gave us a wonderfully light feeling with this palette and the birds adding further motion. I also like how the painting balances the realities of "love" with a little bit of darkness in the bottom right corner. What do you think of this palette and representation of falling in love?
