What color is your Christmas? (and a Holiday buyer`s incentive!)

I believe everyone sees Christmas in color.

And what I mean is that when you close your eyes and picture a holiday scene there is always a color that stands out, right? For many, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the traditional red and green. Bright and cheery, objects to fit that scheme are everywhere you look during the holidays - starting with the beloved Christmas tree.

Others see silver and gold, red and white, blue and silver, and even unexpected shades like black and white, copper and cinnamon, chartreuse and fancy shades of pink.

Me? I have done much of it - dusted with a generous sprinkle of glitter.

Shades of blue and white are what I will play upon this season.

No matter what colors say holiday to you, you will find most of them showcased in the pages of HOLIDAY with Matthew Mead. But...there are also some unexpected twists on the themes, and we believe not every color needs a mate. We think you will be pleasantly surprised by the fresh ideas and color ideas you will see as you browse the pages of HOLIDAY.

Who knows? You just might see Christmas in a whole new (colorful) light!

  3. It depends on which of the rooms you are in at my Christmas house. My daughter's tree is full of pink ornaments, my oldest son has a vintage tree filled with red, blue, green, gold ornaments. My youngest son has alphabet blocks and teddy bears in his tree. The kitchen tree is a wonder of white ornaments, the dinning room is filled with beautiful tea cups, my office tree is decorated in black and white. My favorite tree in the living room is white, red and green. As for the rest of the trees in the house they just have either white or colored lights. In all we have 10 trees inside and two outside. Oh it is a winter wonderland at my home. Stop by around the holidays, we love to have new people stop by for the annual Christmas Caroling party. FA LA LA.

  4. I can't settle on a single scheme so that's why I have 3 trees. I have a formal tree with lots of clear , gold , burgundy. I have a woodland tree with browns, copper, dark greens, silver and cream, and I have my whimsy tree with bright red, lime green, white and black!

  5. I'm waiting impatiently for my copy to arrive. I like lots of green and white for Christmas, with gold and silver, and maybe some deep reds.

  6. I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas colors! I cherish the Christmas reds & greens that we are all so familiar with. But I also love a deep dark almost burgundy red paired with a sage green. And I love to see hints of soft antique gold and silver mixed in! And of course snowy white!

    I can't wait to get my copy of HOLIDAY!!! I was so fortunate to have won one of your giveaways several months ago!!! :-)

  7. I'm so glad that it's October and my copy will arrive very soon!!!!

  8. White, white and more white. With a little dirty silver mixed in!

    We sell 114 different colors of glass ornaments. So, I love every color. But, my absolute favorite is Moss Green Pearl. It is beautiful and very festive! I am so excited for the holiday season and for my new issue of HOLIDAY..with Matthew Mead. Can't wait for it to arrive!

  10. For me it must be the combination of green and red, very traditional.

  11. I like silver because I can combine with any color I want—especially with whites, turquoise and pale blues! The colors of winter.

  12. Hi!
    My favorite Christmas colors are outside my windows ~ here in the northeast, I always hope to see my evergreens dusted with snow~

    I bought my copy of Holiday a while back! I am looking forward to every page!

  13. I fall into two camps...tacky, sparkly kinda 1970's chritmas for the kids and a more natural look, raffia pine cones, real garlands,etc...but beyond burgundy...I like most Christmas decorations!

  14. I do our tree in turquoise, white and silver!
    I just ordered my copy today and now have a very short (not short enough) wait!


  15. My tree is mainly red, green and lime green. This year I'm adding bubble gum pink to the mix. My daughter's tree is white with colored lights with hot pink, turquoise, orange, purple, and lime ornaments.

    Can't wait to get my copy in the mail!!! Very excited!

  16. Hey you ;)
    I just found your blog and will add it to my blog list if that is okay ;) love the themes on your blog!

  17. i do do do love this blog, thanks FOR THIS MOMENT;

  18. Some years it is red and green, then some years are white and gold. It depends on the theme for the year. This year the theme will be "Take Joy" A Tasha Tudor Christmas; so it will be red and green.

  19. Mainly vtg pink, aqua, silver (it's dreamy, but not to sugary). This year I am tempted to do a small feather tree in Turquoise and red. All vtg of course. Looking forward to the magazine. I preordered months ago.

  20. My main tree and decorations are filled with cream/white, silver, faded vintage, mirror/glass, and tons of glitter. (preferably old glitter!)
    I also have another smaller tree with family heirloom decorations, vintage bulbs and bits of sparkle.
    Can't wait to see all of the hard work that you've put into the magazine!
