Classic Holiday Style

December 11, 2009

Traditional isn’t boring.

Classic Christmas décor doesn’t have to be green and red.  Even if your taste gravitates to the most tailored of traditional looks, what better time than the holidays to add a little oomph?!  Gold and amber splashed through almost any interior or dotted into your wardrobe can update your look and spice up your space.  The sparse branches on this copper ornament wreath make it the perfect piece to layer on top of a mirror. This terrific Moroccan inspired pouf and the subtle amber and gold Murano glass decanter and tumblers is money well spent.  Use each to liven up your décor year round.   And before you’re tempted to buy Christmas tree earrings (who wears those?), check out these amazing earrings from Gorjana.  Something Christmas-y about them without being Christmas-y.

But we’re just getting started.  Love the look of gold?  Want more?  Do it!  You can’t go wrong.  There is a reason the price of gold keeps climbing…

Pick up this sweet box of ornaments from Macy’s and mix them in with your other ornaments or go for a monochromatic look.  Simple without being boring.  They’d look terrific grouped around the house in unexpected places – bathroom shelves, window sills, the dining room table.  Setting the tables at the holidays doesn’t have to mean buying holiday-themed tableware. These simple gold napkin rings will add just the right holiday flair to the place setting you use every day.  And you could use them well beyond the holidays.  Same goes for this killer ring.  And anyone can buy a pair of gold heels, right?  They are everywhere.  But will you actually wear them?  These you will wear.  Terrific with crisp dark denim or paired with grey slacks or flowy black pants. You’ll find so many places to wear them you’ll love me for pointing you in their direction.   The open toe keeps them from feeling too Barbie-like and the sequins say “that’s right, this is my holiday outfit” even when you’re wearing just a simple black sweater and jeans.  Get them here.  Thank  me later…

Feeling really edge-y?  Want something more modern after all?  Try this
