blue christmas

i don't know about you, but things are getting a little frenzied as the holiday fervor reaches a fever pitch. people are bumping into each other -- smiling while doing so, which is nice -- since we all know we're just trying to get everything done. let me put it to you this way - i put my pants on inside out a few days ago. and didn't realize it until i was standing on 34th street waiting for the bus. so there's that.

so let's take a moment, you and i, to let our minds wander and linger over some pretty images. i've become really taken with the use of pale blue, white and silver as a holiday palette, even with some well-chosen punches of red here and there. i love its serenity - it's so peaceful and beautiful...a little unexpected too...just what the holidays and the promise of a new year should be.

imagine my delight when i found this week's color me pretty post on decor8. take a look for some serious eye candy.

what do you think? are there unexpected color palettes you've seen or chosen?
