(NC) — Holiday décor is all about the details. This year, why not add a touch of charm to your home with an elegant tablescape that suits your personal aesthetic? To help take the guesswork out of holiday decorating, design guru, Debbie Travis, shares her tips to create a captivating dining space.
To create an air of glitz and glam, icy blues and captivating crystals nod to the frosty temperatures of the season and create a stunning tabletop. Travis recommends using sparkling crystal wine glasses and pairing them with a cool toned table runner for a subtle pop of colour. The combination creates a sophisticated ambiance, ideal for any dinner party.
“Forgo the average greens and reds for more contemporary colours,” Travis advises. “My top tip when using metallic accents is do it sparingly. Pair them with other colours and textures so they stand out.”
If you’re seeking traditional charm, bring the outdoors in and have a little DIY fun by creating a rustic centrepiece that’s both beautiful and budget friendly. Travis suggests buying your own large glass bowl or vase and adding a collection of pinecones or beautiful Christmas crackers for a quick, fun holiday piece.
