On HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes, a beautiful gold and champagne color palette was selected for Sherri Shepherd's holiday decor. Simple white pillar candles, magnolia blossoms and gold garland help accent the hearth as a visual focal point in the living room.
A coral and white striped painted ceiling in this bedroom is accented by coral bedding, which includes a throw and two pillows. Green and white decor, including curtains, pillows and a padded headboard complement the chic space.
A dark gray sofa offers a comfy spot to lounge in this modern family room. Black and white decor throughout the space adds contrast and dimension to the space, and a cluster of glass globe pendant lights hang above the coffee table.
A gorgeous seashell chandelier grabs attention and adds great texture and neutral color to the stark white setting of this living room. A blanket-draped sofa is finished with a patterned throw pillow. Two coffee tables break up the black floor space with the wood tops complementing the natural decorative elements by the window.
Bright whites and simple natural elements dress up this winter mantel display . Terra-cotta pots painted in metallic colors add shine, as do the glitter highlights on pine cones gathered from the woods. Candles and lanterns provide a warm glow, great for cold winter nights.
On HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes, designer Sandra Espinet chose an all-white decorating theme for Brooke Burke's home. White holiday decor provides a pristine look that, properly accessorized, can also be fabulously festive.
A metal piece frames the fireplace creating a fireplace surround and mantle storage. Gorgeous white walls and white ceiling beams are echoed with a white sofa and white chairs with wood top for a bright look. A rug, drum set and wall art add blue color accents to the room.
A window with dark panes sits atop a white vanity with sleek lines. Dainty vases with flowers bring a natural facet to the space and complements the natural, Roman shades. A little cup with a seal image, acting as a toothbrush holder, adds a whimsical touch.
To create the perfect mantel, Barnhardt says to take down everyday mantel decorations, including any framed prints. Hang a fresh evergreen wreath and then gather items from around your home that coordinate with each other. For example, she collects any porcelain and pottery with a green glaze displayed throughout her home and creates a vignette on the mantel by filling the pieces with fresh holly and white pine. Add favorite ornaments or safely place candles for a warm glow to complete the display.
This lively white kitchen features Alice in Wonderland inspired decorations positioned amongst multiple cake stands. A fuchsia hutch with a green tile backsplash sits just off the main counter area, adding a pop of color to the space.
To create a clean, balanced look with a touch of eclectic flair, symmetry is key. Jamie Laubhan-Oliver of D Home suggests buying bedside lamps, nightstands and coordinating accessories in pairs. "Since I tend to decorate in a very eclectic style, duplicates of items help to keep it from looking chaotic," she says regarding her master bedroom style. In her antique-inspired retreat, Jamie uses a matching pair of metallic table lamps and an elegant crystal chandelier as the room's primary light sources. "Chandeliers are the jewelry of your home; whether small or large, they add drama to any room."
Not sure what to showcase on shelves? First, consider what you love. Your interests and hobbies should come through in your accessory choices, says Debbie Wiener, an interior designer in Silver Spring, Md., who helps homeowners create spaces reflective of their everyday lives. "Kids' framed artwork, books, decorative plates, baseball cards or boomerang collections. Your home should look like you," Debbie says. Take stock of vacation mementos, crafts and items you're drawn to time and again when assembling accessories for a shelf arrangement. Design by Emily Henderson.
