May Your Days Be Merry and Bright

If you love the traditional bold Christmas colors but want to spice things up even more this year, swap the red and green for a combo like pink and orange or lime and teal.

However you choose to decorate, these dynamic colors are sure to keep the Christmas spirit alive even on the dreariest of days.
