A color combo, which is often associated with all things gothic, when it actually doesn’t need to say Goth, but instead classic and elegant. These two colors carefully put together can look truly amazing, it’s just making sure you don’t overdue the look and add hints of the colors here and there to ensure these overpowering colors don’t take over. Also try adding touches of white or other bold colors to water down this dramatic combo up. However if you do love all things gothic then we also have a few ideas that will put a new spin on the look.

Most people will automatically think of spring when they here white and green together. But consider Mistletoe that gorgeous olive green teamed naturally with those ivory berries and that’s all the inspiration you’ll need. Don’t be afraid to add some hint’s of gold in there too, just to ensure you’ve got that all important seasonal cheer in there that guests will probably be looking for. Try doing this through font writing, pinecones or even orangey wood.

Green & Red

If your dream is to use festive Christmas colors, then a combination of red and green will look gorgeous. Try to keep natural shades of green and red so that it doesn’t end up looking like Santa’s grotto. We love lush green pine trees and sprigs of holly mixed with those juicy red berries or even fluffy red roses, which will ensure green doesn’t take over.

There’s nothing more cozier than rich hot chocolate served with fluffy pink marshmallows and that’s kind of where our inspiration comes for the next wintery color combo. It’s not a classic color choice for winter, but we think it’s going to be a big look for the next few winters ahead of us, especially since the surge of rustic winter venues came along.
