SILVER AND SPARKLING
White Christmasses are a thing of absolute beauty, recalling the splendour of snow-capped mountains, the early morning frost, and gentle snowfall over an idyllic countryside. If minimal interiors rich with striking, shimmering fixtures and crisp furnishings are your style, you’ll be pleased to know that there are plenty of ways to stretch the look beyond the season; how about white walls paired with clean silver fittings and gleaming marbles floors veined in a pale, wintry grey? You can further add to the look by way of incorporating eye-catching lighting fixtures, from glitzy, ritzy crystal chandeliers to simple, modern wall-mounted lights lined in metallics of your choice. Leave your interiors airy and bright, and promote plenty of natural light by using the appropriate curtains. And, for decorations, what about a soft sheepskin throw or a faux wolf pelt on genuine leather seats?
The reflective luxury of mirrors cannot be overstated when it comes to a contemporary-styled home. And you don’t have to pick regular mirrors; why not opt for tinted mirrors if that better fits your style?
Glass and crystals
Opaque surfaces like marble work beautifully with shimmering silver aesthetics, but if you really want the room to sing, it’s glass and crystal you have to incorporate. Consider going for glass if you’re picking table surfaces, and opt for crystal decorations to add some luxe!
Go modern and stylish with your lighting fixtures. Choose strong silhouettes and clean designs, then flip the script by contrasting against a large, ornate chandelier or lighting fixture that speaks to your personality while simultaneously adding a point of visual interest into what is presumably a chic, minimalist space!
