While the classic combo of red and green can instantly put us in a merry mood, working with different color themes for Christmas can amp up the overall look and feel of our homes. Gold has become a crowd-favorite over the years, and it’s easy to see why. Aside from giving a classic twist to your décor, ornaments in gold can give any space—big or small—a luxe, sophisticated boost. Don’t be afraid to mix and match pieces, visit the nearest mall this weekend and shop for accessories you can use. Here are photos you can save as pegs:
