SIL­VER AND SPARKLING

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - FEA­TURE -

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?

Mir­rors

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!

Light­ing fixtures

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!
