Fill the Room with Metallic Magic
Make your living room look magical this Christmas with sophisticated white and metallic decor. Top a frosted-look flocked tree with a lighted topper that beckons like a beacon, and hang white stockings in anticipation along a fireplace mantel that glows with LED lights and the sheen of metallic finishes. The effect is particularly impressive at night.
Top a Table with a Tree Tray
Create a Christmas conversation piece for your coffee table by lining a wooden tray with a bed of silvery bead garland and using it to display tree-shape wire cones filled with white and metallic ornaments. Snowflake-pattern candleholders add amber ambience.
Hang Metallic Ornaments on the Tree
For a winter wonderland effect, pair the just-snowed-upon look of a flocked tree with the golden glow of beaded ball ornaments.
Wrap Gifts with Wow
Wrap presents that are too pretty to open—almost. Use metallic wrapping paper, a big coppery bow, a string of crystal-like beads and a pinecone ornament to make gifts look extra special.
Complement the Look with Pillows
Complement the look of metallic-finish Christmas decor with soft and pretty accents such as pillows that feature intricate snowflake patterns on a neutral background. Pillows are an easy way to dress living room furniture for the holidays.
Create a Metallic Mantel
The fireplace mantel is a traditional focal point of holiday living room decor. Make yours special by blending layers of white and metallic-finish items, including silvery picks, lighted cone trees, lighted glass trees and LED candles. White stockings are a refreshing take on tradition and echo the snowflake patterns on the pillows.
Let Lighting Enhance Metallic Finishes
When you combine lights with the reflective sheen of metallic finishes, the effect is magical. On a mantel, built-in lights let cone trees and glass trees show their full beauty, while strings of tiny battery-powered fairy lights add sparkle to silvery picks and a garland of artificial magnolia leaves spray-painted in metallic hues.
Hang a Metallic Wreath
For a striking switch from typical holiday decor, hang a metallic wreath in the living room. This one was created by applying different colors of metallic-finish spray paint to a wreath of artificial magnolia leaves. The wreath adorns an everyday mirror above the mantel to create an eye-catching Christmas decoration. A string of battery-operated fairy lights adds a delightful glow to the wreath.
Add a Sophisticated Tree Skirt
Place beautifully wrapped Christmas presents on a simple yet sophisticated tree skirt that features the same intricate snowflake patterns as the pillows and stockings. The snowflakes pick up the hues of the metallic-finish decor and combine them with accent colors.
