Metallic Accents for a Fresh Take on Holiday Style

Brass, silver, copper and everything in between will bring a glam addition to your holiday decor. From shiny tabletop upgrades to stylish twists on tinsel must-haves, these finds will give your interior a seriously festive makeover.

Whether or not you live in a cold weather climate, a snowy holiday wish makes a playful addition to any room of the house. This silver “Let It Snow” wall hanging is all you need to add a trendy touch to your interior in an instant. Drape it over the fireplace, use it as a makeshift photobooth backdrop during parties or simply hang it on a wall for merry thoughts. One thing’s for sure, this glittery find will delight every guest.

Santa may be known for his jolly belly and bushy beard, but this sleek silhouette is a version we can’t help but love. Its gold hue and next-level reflective finish ensures that this accent will stand out amongst the rest of those traditional shades of green and red. It’s sometimes hard to gauge the size of a decorative figure from an image, but let us assure you that this stylish Saint Nick stands at 18 inches tall, so he’s sure to be the center of attention as always.

Christmas decorations often fall under the “more is more” category, but that doesn’t need to be the case for your home this year. Minimalist touches — like this simple tree — make for a modern scene stealing alternative. Whether you have a tree set up or not, bring in a metallic tabletop option to spruce up any lackluster surface areas that require a festive upgrade.

Wreaths undoubtedly bring a homey vibe to any door or wall they’re hung on, but if you’re jonesing for an untraditional alternative (read: sick of cleaning up pine needles off of the floor), this glitzy find is exactly what you need. With its sparkling qualities this eye-catching essential will transform any space. Whether you hang it up or place it around a candle as a tabletop showstopper, you're in for an instant boost in holiday style.

With their twinkly qualities, lights are a must this time of year. Whether they’re around the tree, adorning the windows or simply hanging on the wall, they're always welcome. Searching for options other than classic Christmas bulbs? These copper wire LED lights will do the trick. The copper twine adds just the right amount of metallic flair to the otherwise standard lights. Because of the wire’s bendable qualities, you can get creative with how you display these glimmering copper additions.

Tiny trees are the perfect way to bring some seasonal style into your home without going over the top. Studio apartments, children’s bedrooms, kitchens and every room in between will get a holiday boost this year thanks to these small-scale tinsel options. Whether you opt for champagne or copper, one of these oh so cute additions will look perfect when propped on top of a table or tucked away in a cozy corner amongst throw pillows and blankets.

Adding festive flair to all nooks of your home is a must, and these extra shiny silver balls will help you create a swoon-worthy winter wonderland. From the mantel to the entryway, any empty spot will get an upgrade from glimmering garland. The bendable wire is covered in a bright blue tape to create an icy contrast with the attached silver balls. String these over the doorway or lay them down the center of your table for a gleaming update that's sure to wow.

Woodland critters are synonymous with holiday decor, but if you’re looking for a way to keep those nostalgic feelings going strong while introducing more modern elements, these shimmering figures will do wonders for your curated vignettes. Mix and match a few of these metallic options with your existing decorations for a fresh take on the holiday favorites, or simply place them on their own for a bold statement that won’t disappoint.

The glow of Christmas lights is charming on its own, but becomes even more cozy with the help of an abundance of candles kept on display. In order to achieve a grand impact, consider snagging some traditional taper options that have been updated with a metallic finish. With their gold sheen and ombre effect, these candlesticks will turn your tablescape into a dreamy setup with major seasonal style.

Whether you carefully weave it in between tree branches or tack it to the wall, this rose gold garland is guaranteed to wow. The garland itself has plenty of metallic appeal, but becomes even more whimsical thanks to the inclusion of extra LED lights and glossy glass ornaments that hang along it from start to finish.
