Holiday interior: Silver and gold
Sparkling table style Silver and gold shine on their own, so feel free to skip the heavy tablecloth, even for a formal affair. This table has a more modern aesthetic with its polished wood surface, which allows the low-key lustre of the palette to take centre stage.
Beautiful baubles Luminous ornaments in different sizes are gently touched by candlelight to form a radiant centrepiece. Search your cupboards for vessels of varying shapes and materials, from a clear glass trifle bowl to a mercury glass candy dish, and use them to add patina to the table.
Golden table setting A spare place setting gets the royal treatment. White china and the "good" silver go glam topped with a plain white napkin embellished with gold fabric paint and tied with silver ribbon and gold baubles.
Luxe living room The living room mantel is often the focus of holiday decorating, but in this space a wide window is used as a blank canvas for seasonal decorations. Clusters of ornaments hang from the curtain rod, complemented by silver and gold throw cushions from the sofa.
Icy cool entryway Different textures of icy cool silver and wintry whites are warmed up with hits of gold. The soft white backdrop allows the elegant colour combination to sparkle and shine.
