Thanksgiving is a holiday that’s always bursting with rich fall colors: fiery oranges, golden yellows, and deep reds. And we totally get it—these classic colors are perfect for seasonal home décor and to use on seasonal coloring page designs. But this year, take on a creative challenge and include some colorfully unexpected shades, too! From elegant neutrals to pretty pastels to vibrant brights—here are nine non-traditional Thanksgiving color combos you won’t want to overlook for your next coloring project:
1. Refreshing Fruits
Go green on your next seasonal design with this combination of color ranging from citrusy greens to soft yellows. This palette would look perfect on our ”Pear Flair” coloring page!
2. Earthy Hues
Tans and browns are perfect for honoring the harvest season. Add pops of muted blue-greens into the mix and you have yourself a well-balanced color scheme. Try this color palette out on our “Peaceful Retreat” coloring page!
4. Opaque Stones
The power of neutrals can make any coloring page look elegant and classy—plus, you can always add a pop of bright color whenever you need it. Try these pinkish neutrals out on our “Painting With Nature” coloring page!
5. Sea Grays & Waves
Here’s one unexpected bluish gray-scale palette that’s oh-so-lovely for coloring. Pair these subdued grays with vibrant greens and yellows to bring our “Evening at Autumn Lake” coloring page to life.
6. Blue Skies
These shades of blue are perfect for accenting any festive orange or brown on your coloring pages. Try this gradient color palette on one of our nature designs. (Blue flowers are just as beautiful as yellow and orange ones!)
8. Autumn Architecture
From the dark teal windows to the rustic red walls, these colors aren’t that far off from cool days and fallen leaves. We think these festive colors would look perfect on our “Autumn Leaves Galore” coloring page.
Think outside of the traditional box this Thanksgiving and let your next seasonal creation shine with these nine perfectly unexpected color combinations!
