This time of year is always cathartic and cozy. It’s when we spend more time indoors, relishing in the coziness of our homes, getting crafty, and making extra time for friends and family. Each year, we think about our holiday decor and which theme best fits our present vibe.
At Authentic Home, our favorite style of festive design is through the use of various metallic finishes and bright, clean palettes. We are sharing our favorite tips and tricks to achieve a beautiful metallic holiday decor theme!
‘Tis the Season! Beautiful Metallic Holiday Interiors- Our Inspiration!
When decorating your home for the holidays, the easiest way to bring a festive sparkle into your space is through the use of reflective decor and accents. Beautiful metallic ornaments in many different colors works wonderfully together. Don’t over-think it. All silvers, golds, and coppers are complements of each other in the design world!
Remember, it’s all in the small things! Starting a collection of beautiful metallic pieces is easy. Scour your favorite home goods store, local antique market, and boxes in the attic. Pull in elements of non-traditional holiday items such as rustic woods and candles. This beautiful shelf display showcases the perfect arrangement of metallics, whites, and organic elements. The beauty of metallic holiday decorating is that it has a timeless aesthetic- it will never date itself! You can use your decor for years to come, adding pops of color that may be trending at that time. To learn how to make an ornament wreath, see a tutorial, here.
Implement all holiday decor into your tablescape! Take extra tree-toppers, ornaments, ribbon, and candles to give your table a glimmering, glowing, warm design. The beauty of metallic finishes is their reflective quality. Your decor is sure to sparkle with beautiful ambiance. A simple addition to your holiday tablescape is through the use of organic elements such as jute runners (which you can find already metallicised, or do yourself), crystal stemware, mirrored place mats and antiqued silver utensils. If you have extra tree clippings lying around, place a sprig of fresh pine into your napkin rings for an added festive touch (to see inspiration, click here.)

Reminiscent of past trends, frosted trees are back in style. And they go beautifully with a metallic design theme! Use of a pale color palette in combination with metallic accents creates an elegant, sophisticated, warm, and welcoming touch. Through the use of silver, gold, and bronze ribbon you can replace tired garland, and white lights are always a classic look.One of our favorite crafty design ideas is the creation of Rudoulf!
