Mixing metals was considered tasteless before but now it’s one of the hottest trends to try. Mixed metals make the space more timeless, they add a shiny and glam touch and make any space more chic and eye-catchy. Gold, silver, copper look nice together, and they can be blended in various ways in your interiors and you can use this idea for holiday decor, too. Let’s have a look how to mix metals right to achieve chic Christmas decor.
A Christmas tree is the main holiday decor element, and decorating is very important. Mixing metals means usually choosing one main metal, which will be used more than others, and then adding other metals in the proportions you like. You can also go for a combo of two metals, for example, gold and silver or gold and copper and decorate only with them two. If you have a traditional green tree, rock different metals – all kinds of shades you like, while a flocked or white tree will look much bolder with copper and gold ornaments and decorations, silver ones won’t stand out.
Create various Christmas displays throughout the house: take a tray, a bowl, a box and fill it with mixed metals ornaments – such a decoration can be a proper idea everywhere. You may also add candles to the tray, and you’ll get an amazing and simple centerpiece. Add mixed metal Christmas trees to your tablescape, mantel and shelves to make them cooler and more glam. Attach some evergreen branches in an archway, decorated them with ornaments to make a cool display. There are various Christmas decor items on sale, not only ornaments, you can find nice animal fiurines, snowflakes, little trees and other things, so you may create whatever you like and wherever you like.
