a red-mailbox-inspired color palette

modern Christmas color palette | letters to Santa | red, orange, gray [pinit]


Here's a color combination to get you in the mood for the holidays! A splash of neon orange adds a unexpected, modern pop of color to a palette of Christmas Red, silver, gray, and slate.

A tip for updating a traditional Christmas color palette :: keep ONE traditional color (red or green), add ONE unexpected accent color, then use white, silver, gray, or an earth tone (tan, brown, taupe) as a neutral.

I sincerely hope kids are still using snail mail to write letters to Santa. The day they all send emails will be a sad one.

Happy Friday! Best of luck battling the mall front this weekend. (Or, if you don't feel like venturing out, check out the Pretty Peas Paperie Etsy Shop for fun holiday paper and gifts!)
