Get Instagram-worthy Christmas décor by combining a neutral palette with sparkly gold and silver accents.
Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice (FurnitureChoice.co.uk), shares 3 ways to elevate your home décor this Christmas.
1. Layer a neutral palette with chic metallic accents
Create a contemporary Christmas look by adding gold and silver accents to an existing neutral palette. “Mix stylish metallics with chrome furniture for a polished feel,” Rebecca says. “Choose pieces that work well with your home style, like modern wreaths or chic baubles.”
For an Instagram-worthy look, decorate the staircase with paper honeycomb balls in a variety of neutral tones. “Mix and match different sizes with gold stars to bring an extra layer of sophistication,” Rebecca says. “These paper ornaments bring a wow-factor with their subtle yet stylish design.”
2. Create a festive glow with luxe accents in the dining room
Set the mood for an entertaining night in with a luxe dining set and chic lighting. “Pair luxurious materials such as marble and velvet with sleek chrome and black accents,” Rebecca says. “This sets up a polished backdrop to decorate with Christmas garlands or holly.” It also allows you to create a festive glow by contrasting modern lamps with candles and fairy lights for a joyful ambience.
Complete the look with fresh flowers, elegant place settings and stylish baubles for a modern Christmas tablescape.
3. Bring sparkle and cosiness to the bedroom
Meanwhile, focus on cosiness with a dash of sparkle in the bedroom. “Since it’s the bedroom, the décor should feel both relaxing and festive,” Rebecca explains. “Soften the space with a modern velvet bed and crisp white bed sheets. Accessorise with metallic cushions or throws and ornaments for a seasonal touch.” Bring in fresh foliage and soft lighting to play up the Christmas atmosphere.
