Gold is the most timeless metallic hue of all time and is traditional for winter holidays. It easily gives a shiny and bright touch to the room, and is compatible – you can combine it with other colors as you like. If you want to incorporate gold in your holiday decor in style, these ideas will help – I’ve prepared some stylish ways to incorporate it into the Christmas decor.
Gold Christmas trees and Christmas tree decor
Gold Christmas decorations are traditional – they will spice up any tree: black, white, ordinary, flocked, snow-covered or any other, but the higher the contrast, the more they stand out. You can combine them with white, black, silver, red, blue, and many other ornaments if you want more than one color. But if you want even more gold in your room, boldly rock a pre-lit gold Christmas tree! Such a tree doesn’t require a lot of decor, you can skip ornaments or, if you like – just add something to match – gold and silver or contrasting black, white and so on. You can also find a gradient ombre to the black Christmas tree that’s even bolder and brighter if you feel like it – just buy one!
Gold Christmas table setting
Beautify your Christmas table with gold – with gold cutlery and candle holders, chargers and vases, ornaments and ribbons. Create whole centerpieces and table runners from gold ornaments, mini Christmas trees, gold-plated candles, vases and bowls. You can combine gold tones with other metallics and freshen up the look with evergreen or green plants with white flowers and pine cones – natural decor gives your metallics a fresher look. Gold can be combined with silver, white, blue, red, and many other colors so you can easily create a stylish color scheme for the table.
There are many more ideas for incorporating gold into your Christmas decorations, from ornaments and lights to works of art and bunting. All of these parts can be made by yourself. Enjoy!
Gardening season is on and I bet everyone will strive to plant and grow something fresh somewhere outside. If you want to plant something but don't have enough space for it, there are some creative space-saving garden solutions like vertical planters or hanging gardens. Today I want to share some hanging ideas for those of you who are lacking in space.
Creating indoor and outdoor hanging gardens is pretty easy. Choose a pot to use: it could be a regular pot, piece of gutter, PVC pipe, old kitchen strainer, piece of bottle, bucket, or something else. Here it all depends on the style of gardening you want, the things you have on hand, and the plants you are growing. Then decide how you want to secure everything: on rods, chains or ropes or just hang it up somewhere with hooks. Now somehow mark the planters if they are vegetables or herbs to distinguish them if necessary. You can do this with chalkboard markers or just spray the pots with different colors.
Now hang the entire construction in the desired place: on your terrace, balcony, garden or even on the veranda and enjoy your plants. So easy!
