Snow Tired Mixes Whites with Warm Neutrals

We’re heading into the weekend with hot cocoa on the brain. For sure, this marshmallow snowman here for all the snow tired vibes we’re feeling. This time of December is when Instagram switches from photos of pumpkin pie to photos of cute kids on a sugar high posing with their gingerbread houses. I love seeing how the final products run the gamut from hot mess to super creative. We’re hoping we see some cute marshmallow snowmen out there this year!

How can we use this snow tired palette in a pattern?

Aside from just being cute, we’re liking this image because it brings a lot of great neutrals together. We love how all the various shades of white are subtly mixing together. Too often mixing shades of white can end with a pattern that has a chilly feel. Yet, when you throw in those pops of warm color, such as red and orange, this palette stays warm and fresh.
