Hard to believe but the holidays, with their familiar color palettes, are almost upon us (where has the time gone?!). We thought we’d shake it up a bit this year and introduce you to a hue that pairs well with the traditional red, green, blues and metallics while adding a sophisticated, cheery pop. Wanna know what it is?
“Grape is the perfect nod to this chilly month. It reminds me of the hustle and bustle of the holidays when paired with other vibrant colors yet brings beauty and warmth when standing alone. The saturated hue catches the eye and is a great accent color to any holiday celebration.” —Farima Alavi, Assistant Editor

”This isn’t the purple you were in love with as a kid. It’s saturated, masculine and just a touch royal. It lends itself well to textures, from velvet to satin, and depending on how you style it, it can be sophisticated or punky. The only thing it can’t ever be, is ignored.” —Briana Mowrey, Senior Online Editor
“A great complement to silver, black and rich jewel tones, grape is the perfect “notice me” hue to add to your holiday party palette. Or pair it with teal and pool blue to add a jolt of electricity to your decor all winter long.” —Liz Gray, Senior Online Editor
“This grape is so electric, it practically fizzes. It’s an unexpected choice for the holidays, yet it makes perfect sense.” —Marianne Canada, HGTV Home Studio
“Pair grape with tan and chocolate hues for a warm, luxurious look and feel that can easily work all year long. Entertaining for the holidays? Pull in a pop of grape with silver or cobalt for a sophisticated pairing that’s just right for frosty Christmas gatherings.” – Kayla Kitts, Assistant Editor
