A Blue Christmas Doesn't Mean the Christmas Blues

Blue is especially appealing because it matches many people's home decor
and many people have blue motifs in their homes. So boundless is blue that
you could pair it with red this holiday for a surprisingly elegant look.

Start with blue-greens ranging in intensity from pale to brilliant and temper
it with a deep, orangery red. No color combination is as endlessly versatile as
this dynamic duo. Here we see it change moods - - - cooling the modern with
aqua, igniting the exotic with chocolate brown, and raising the sophistication
level of traditional with white.

Yes, there are annual trends in holiday decor and this combination is one
of them. Blue and red are not only hot choices for Winter 2007 look out
for this combination in the Spring.

Red and turquoise specifically drive me crazy. So flattering together. A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll.

Beautiful post--I love the colors together! I think Tiffany's puts a red ribbon on their boxes at Christmas (at least I saw a wedding gift that had one once).
