White, red, and green make for a traditional holiday palette in this color wheel inspired by St. Lucia’s day. Also known as the Feast of Saint Lucy, St. Lucia’s day is celebrated in Sweden to honor the martyr Lucia of Syracuse. Legend has it that she appeared with a candlelit wreath lighting her head and brought food to the Christians hiding in Roman catacombs. Take comfort in these customary traditions by investing in a brightly striped red throw pillow, simple white candles, and deer ornaments to adorn your space. Draw on natural decorations such as poinsettias and beautiful cypress wreaths to infuse your home with seasonal charm. Our beautiful Rustic River Sundance oak in classic brown juxtaposes nicely with this timeless color palette.
