The light is golden in the dining room with copper and gold reflecting the light from my chandelier and the tree lights at night. It’s truly amazing how one large accessory like this massive copper bucket can bring light and glam into this room both at night and during the day.

Metallics are perfect for the holidays and I plan on continuing leaving them out for the winter. If you’ve ever used a reflector for photography you’ll know just what I mean. Copper and gold will bring in glamourous warm light to a space and silver brings in cool light.

There is nothing pretty than an abundance of candles glowing up a room at night. Whether they are pillars or dinner tapers light them up as soon as the sun starts to disappear from sight and you’ll have an instant warmth and glow.
