Holiday Sparkle with Metallics!

What would the holidays be without a little sparkle?!?

These days, metallics are all the rage and have quickly become the go-to accent in any room. What I love about metallics is that you can use them anywhere and with anything. Their versatility and instant pop make them a personal favorite of mine.

I am also a big fan of gold, but more recently I’ve started to see the mixture of both gold and silver in one space. Who says you have to choose between the two? However, if you want to incorporate either silver or gold, how do you choose? Gold is a better accent to jeweled and deeper tones (teals, orchids, deep purple, rich blues, etc.) while silver is best with lighter and brighter colors (sunshine yellow, cool grey, dreamy pastels, etc.). If you have a neutral room utilizing browns, black or white, you could go either way.

Here are some great examples of how metallics were used in rooms adding contrast, sparkle and shine.

If you’re looking for that one perfect piece or pieces to incorporate, I recommend checking out stores like Z-Gallerie, Target and TJ Maxx. Here are some examples of what I’ve found online.

Holiday Tablescapes

Just in time for the holiday season….bringing you  some inspiration for your holiday tablescape!

Decorating your tablescape is all about layering. Start with your base (tablecloth) then layer from there; runners, place mats, chargers, plates, salad bowls, napkins, napkin rings, name tags, candles, centerpieces, etc. Make sure you have a mix of textures, finishes, and colors. And most important, don’t stress- have fun with it! Tis the Season!

Below, I’ve featured three different themes for tablescape ideas: Sparkle, Rustic and Classic Plaid.
