Muted Yet Festive Holiday Decorating

Living Etc.

Most holiday decorations are all about the bright, the shiny, or the snow white. But take a look at these muted holiday settings for a little dark and dreamy inspiration.

Muted doesn't have to mean somber - it can be rich, relaxing and luxurious instead. We love the dark wall colors in these photos put together with natural deep hues from fruits and plants. Deep berry colors seem to work best for creating a dark yet festive holiday setting. What do you think?
