A Golden Holiday

Go for the gold to create holiday hues that will soothe, surprise and sparkle.

Influenced by golden yellow, green takes on a tart look. This formally arranged mantel holds traditional evergreens, but it's a trio of just-shy-of-ripe Bartlett pears that puts an interesting spin on the color wheel.

Their yellow hue is picked up in the scalloped edges of the stockings, tailored from matelasse pillow shams. Hand-thrown cachepots and the arrangement's showpiece, a square wreath, also carry out the pear-green scheme.

Accent with White

This neutral-toned seating area is dressed for the holidays with a mouth-watering color combo of berry and honey. A large wreath of gilded lemon leaves draws the eye toward the windows.

To make an equally rich wreath, spray clusters of fresh lemon leaves, still on their stems, with gold paint. Let them dry, then insert the stems into a plastic-foam wreath form until it's densely covered.

Almost touching the ceiling with a topper made from cranberry glass, the living room tree is decorated with a mix of old and new traditional ornaments. The amber lights bathe new and old ornaments in a light similar to candle glow. A garland of red, green, and gold glass trinkets strings all the colors together.

A tried-and-true color combination for the holidays, red and gold tell a new story with more intense tones. Reds are juicier -- running the gamut from cranberry to grape -- and gold has a strong influence from brown, giving it an amber cast.

In a dining room suited for entertaining, an opulent scene is set by ruby-red decorations matched in wattage by shiny metallic gold. Twin centerpieces anchor the tablescape: glass hurricanes surrounded by rings of roses, anemones, and dusty miller.

And Highlight with Sunlight

This sunroom's minty freshness comes from its palette of soft sage, heather, and spruce on a field of snow white. Glass icicles, mirrored ornaments, and a variety of white Moravian stars lighten and brighten the dark fir tree. A white statice wreath looks dusted with snowflakes.

Wrapped gifts broaden the color scheme to include this year's hot color: yellow-green. It can be as tangy as lemon-lime soda or as soft as sage leaves.
