Mint & Teal Christmas {this year’s fave}

Hello, friends! First of all let me apologize for being absent yesterday, leaving you with no post (can’t remember when that happened before, probably never). I was out of town all day, helping my MIL with her exhibition. But I’m back now! I missed you and hope you missed me too :D. And yes, happy December! Oh my, isn’t it unbelievable how fast time flies? In just one month we’ll say bye to 2010 and graciously embrace 2011. And this means what? Exactly – holidays are just around the corner, with reasons to decorate (and some shopping of course!). People are asking me what are  my favorite colors for Christmas this year and my answer is always the same: mint, teal, emerald green! I’m astonished by this color combo for a few weeks now! And imagine my face when I saw it in the latest Rue, on a Christmas tree (I was blown away, seriously!). The combo is so gentle yet so vibrant and modern. Traditional? No. Boring? No way! Awesome? Yes, please! I love it and will definitely consider decorating my tree with these shades. What about you?

I’m utterly inspired to see how mint, teal and emerald green are taking control this year over winter holidays. Looks like we’re moving forward with our traditions and aesthetics and I can’t describe how much I love it!

Now the big question, do you like this combo as for decorating your tree or home for the holidays or you prefer the well-known red-green combination?

    Ludmilla, the color combinations you feature on here are always so innovative. Mint and teal? I’d never think of putting them together, but it so clearly works and in a really fabulous way. I really like them on the white tree and think they’d look wonderful on a regular tree too.

    These are my favorite colors! I love this. I also love bright red and white, cobalt blue and silver or white and crystal with gold and silver for Christmas color schemes. Somehow I just never thought of using my favorite colors as a Christmas color scheme, I guess I’m a little too traditional to think of it. I like pink and purple, for instance, but I don’t like them for Christmas, even though they can look pretty good. I could probably go for teal with white, gold and silver. I think I may do that next year.
