Mix glamorous decorations, luxurious tableware and soft candlelight with natural-wood details and cool marble-effect wallpaper, to give a modern sparkle to a glamorous home.
Make your table shine by decorating with a mix of pretty fairy lights and star votives. Scatter a sprinkling of star confetti on the table for added sparkle. Group mini plywood trees to make the perfect centrepiece and hang twinkly decorations from a piece of driftwood or branch above a fire or mantelpiece.
To get this look…
• Choose a statement wallpaper such as a subtle winter forest or cool grey marble effect for the perfect backdrop.
• Decorate the tree with a mix of gold, white and pale wood decorations, look for cut-out snowflakes and stars.
• Add natural elements to soften a gold-and-white dining room, real spruce boughs and wrap gifts in brown paper.
• Complement gold decorations with metallic side tables, mirrors or consoles that will work all year round.
To party in style, add shimmer and shine to your festive gathering with a glitter-encrusted ice bucket, cut-class flutes and diamanté napkin rings. Mirrored coasters give glowing candles extra sparkle. Embellish plain votives with diamanté and beaded ribbons and trims from haberdashery shops. A natural marble-effect wallpaper and white tree make a stunning subtle backdrop to all the gleaming gold decorations and accessories. Pimp up your gifts with a mix of glittery ribbons, twine and lengths of natural hessian, adding a mini gold bauble and leaf sprig as the final finishing touch. Create a stylish look with an open shelving unit by filling with beautifully wrapped gifts in elegant colour combinations. Not only does it look great, but it stops the tree from becoming overcrowded.
