• Tell Your Friends

If you’ve been following along with our Color of the Month meetings, you know that we’re, ahem, very passionate about our chosen hues. But this month, we wanted to see which color speaks to YOU, our amazing readers. Check it out:

That’s right, we’re letting you choose the Color of the Month from our top three picks: Hot Pink, Glitter and Icy Purple.

Design Happens Color of the Month December

Read on to watch all three video pitches. Then cast your vote…we’ll announce the winning hue on Friday, December 7!

Option 1: Hot Pink
Our Pinterest guru Sarah (and meeting crasher/pink expert/HGTV graphic designer Hannah) pitched super-saturated Hot Pink. Their reasoning: this color easily injects modern flair into your Christmas decorations. Plus, who doesn’t love peppermint?

Option 2: Glitter
Yes, Glitter! There was much debate over whether this really qualified as a color, but envelope-pusher and resident crafty lady Marianne eventually won our votes with her talk of holiday parties, ornament making and glitter nail polish. 

Option 3: Icy Purple
It makes total sense that Christmas decoration fanatic Grant pitched Icy Purple for December, since his Pinterest board is filled with stunning purple light displays. Sure, he might not have pitched it first, but the color just feels right for holiday-time.

So which color gets your vote? You have until Friday, December 7 at noon to make a choice in the poll below. We’ll announce the winning hue on Friday afternoon.

    frankly if red, green & and silver were shown I would pick them because the red is for santa's hat the green on the tree and the silver for the bells that ring.

    Love love the purple ! I have always been a little daring and since there will be I hope, a lot of the beautiful white stuff outside the purple ice on the inside is the perfect choice!

  9. Purple is my favorite color. It has been ever since I wore my first pair of purple suede shoes when I was 13! Hugs
