15 Dec A Modern Holiday Scheme for Mosaic Homes
I teamed up with local real estate developer and home builder, MOSAIC, to decorate their Burke Mountain Model Home for the Holidays.
While white on white on white will always be classic and timeless when it comes to interior design and holiday décor, color is back in a big way and I wanted to decorate the MOSAIC Burke home in rich tones, lux materials and deep hues that nod to a shimmering up-scale bohemian affair.
My pallet begins with dark emerald blue-greens blues, dusty rose tones and sparkling copper and gold. I’ve transformed a kitchen, dining and living room space to feel exceptionally modern, edgy, and glamorous while still playful and festive!
Here are 5 Holiday Décor Tips when decorating with deep hues:
1) Take your pick.
While decorating with color can go in a multitude of directions, it’s important to choose wisely to create a cohesive palette. Pick 2 to 4 hues and repeat these hues throughout your décor so that there’s a sense of rhythm and restraint to your décor theme.
Rather than an explosion of color, the careful repetition will create a finished look that feels polished and sophisticated.
2) Layer up.
The key to creating an interesting décor scheme that has depth with a limited color pallet is by layering and mixing different finishes.
An emerald green, for example, that appears in varying finishes such as glossy, matt, textured, speckled.. (you name it) suddenly creates a rich and dynamic depth to the color and the overall decor scheme.
3) A pinch (or two) of sparkle.
What holiday décor scheme wouldn’t be complete without sparkle? In our case, we’ve added a little frosting throughout our space in both gold and silver tones.
Everything from the cake toppers, to the martini garnish, to the disco snowman… a little sparkle goes a long way in making a holiday statement and ensuring that even the most unexpected color pallet still feel like Christmas.
4) Black & White.
Every décor scheme should have a little black and a little white.
By adding both tones to our holiday scheme, it immediately breaks up a would-be extremely sophisticated scheme and creates a feeling that’s playful, edgy and modern.
We’ve introduce touches of black and white throughout the space with our tree décor, our DIY splattered paint wrapping paper, home-made cookies and used it as a backdrop for our table top items and.
6) Shop wisely!
Even though this look was pulled together for our “Cosmic Christmas” I always like to purchase décor items that can be re-used and recycled for different occasions.
The blue CB2 plates were a perfect find for a galaxy-inspired look, but they could also be reused for an elegant baby-shower or engagement party.
The throw pillows and area rug speak to our deep navy blue tones, but with a little tweaking and fresh flowers, these items would also showcase beautifully in a spring décor scheme.
By investing on your splurge on items that can be used over and over again, and shopping wisely for items that are very specific and seasonal only, you can feel great about all your holiday purchases this season.
