I'll Have a Glam Christmas

Want to go glam this year without going over the top? Then check out these finds over at Domain Home where actress Jessica Biel and the DH staff created this oh, so divine mix of elegance and cozy, with a touch of drama thrown into the mix.

If it's time to cull your book collection, think twice before getting rid of those hefty coffee table books and create a coffee table instead. Whether you choose a piece of salvaged stone as they did here, or a piece of glass or wood, you'll be left with a signature piece that everyone will talk about. Black and white always looks right, but it doesn't have to be boring. Add a touch of color, but keep to one or two analogous (colors that sit side by side on the color wheel) hues and you'll instantly warm up the room. Ohand those rugs! Kilim rugs work perfectly as wall coverings/art and bring in the decorator's trifectapattern, color, and texture. Divine indeed.

By now you should know how I feel about using natural elements in your home, and I'm a huge fan of mixing both real and faux together, as long as it's good quality. This table filled with silvery shimmer also gets a touch of gold to once again warm up the display. Yes, you can mix silver and gold together, even if only in tiny amounts. Fill glass hurricanes with mercury balls or get out that can of mercury glass paint and have fun reinventing all sorts of finds.

Go check out the Domain web site and find even more inspiration.
