all about the classics {color}

Continuing on my classic holiday kick--these are just a few reasons why scarlet red and soft green will never go out of style and always be synonymous with this season.

Do you agree? Are you a traditionalist when it comes to holiday decor?

Also, I got the absolute best news today--delight by design was included in the London Times list of the top 50 design blogs!

I completely agree - Red and Green are Christmas {& you've used my favourite shades of both colours in this post}.

I've always been drawn to a palette of deep reds while just this year I have a newfound respect and admiration for a palette of simple green and white.

Great post & Congratulations on your London Times nod!

PS: I am trying to think of a way to incorporate those adorable hanging bottles into a wedding or party...

Congrats on the review!

I am definitely a traditionalist, although I wish I wasn't. I look at some of the funky, modern designs and wish I had the guts.
I agree with the London Times. Congrats!

I definitely am a firm believe in the red and green color palette for holiday decorating. Pretty and simply is definitely my go-to plan! It's fun to look at all the bright colors and immaculate decor, but at the end of the day, I love settling in with my classic white lights on the Christmas tree and nutcracker collection on the mantel :)
gorgeous. I love the shade of red you chose! Have a lovely week!

I can't decide if I'm a traditionalist with holiday decor- this year I'm doing the classics because it's all I have. I'm open to exploring more neutral and metallics, but off the wall colors like hot pink or blue I don't think I could do...
