Magical christmas colour schemes – white and opulent gold
Contemporary interiors in white looks stunning when combined with opulent gold. This Christmas enhance your interior by using only gold ornaments and Christmas decorations. Choose the latest technological artificial Christmas trees in white and sparsely use gold baubles and ornaments to create a chic and stunning look. Don't forget to add quirky interest by using block letters which spell out words NOEL or PEACE and place these on the mantel piece in front of a mirror to provide a real focal point in your living space.
You could also use the latest brushed gold or antique brass curtain poles which have hand blown crackled glass effects end finials which will combine effortlessly with your festive décor as well as being an easy way to hang your curtains. Don't forget to decorate your entire living space including the hallway, bedrooms, dining room and lounge.
In the hall use a wreath to hang on your door made from soft white feathers interspersed with small gold balls. If you have a glass front door you can add further interest, and help to save energy by using the door curtain. This may sound rather old-fashioned however, if you stick with your white colour scheme and use ready made curtains which are lined you will be surprised at how much energy you can save. Of course contemporary interiors are completely clutter free, so make sure your hallway is devoid of coats and shoes. Tuck them away in a cupboard or put them way in your wardrobe.
In the bedroom you will already have everything white including the walls and your bedding sets. Add a touch of festive magic to your bedroom by adding boudoir style cushions to your bed, look for different contrasting fabrics to add texture and luxury in various hues of gold. You could even hang baubles bunched together at the end of the curtain poles, alternatively you could change your tiebacks for Christmas baubles which are made from glass to coordinate with your hand blown glass finials.
The dining room table should also reflect these stunning colour combinations of snow white and opulent gold. Make each place setting really special by using white crockery and scattering gold dragees or tiny small gold stars onto a crisp white linen tablecloth. Don't neglect your windows as these are part and parcel of creating a stunning interior! You could use the same bauble technique to tie back your curtains or alternatively why not use fresh mistletoe tied with ribbons to hold your curtains in place!
