Christmas doesn’t have to be all about the traditional red and green. The fresh combination of black and white that is currently trending in home décor, will mix with metallics for the 2015 Holiday season.

Black and white stripes will replace traditional Christmas patterns, and brass is the new metallic for this look. Gilded Modern is sophisticated and refreshing. It feels new, yet timeless.

  • We are all about bright color at Ampersand Design Studio, but that doesn’t stop us from loving black and white, especially when you throw in some brass! We knew we had to make the most of this trend, and what better spot than the heart of the Holidays at home: the mantel. An added bonus; we love that this look can transition well right into New Year’s Eve.

  • This look is all about high contrast; bold and graphic patterns like black and white stripes, glammed up with brass in various lusters.

  • We wanted it to feel tailored and polished, but not too serious, and definitely not cold. To add some texture, we incorporated (faux) fur stockings, a cozy black and white throw, and two pillows covered with our fabric from our Bold and Gold collection by Windham Fabrics.

  • To give it our own playful touch, we created a gallery of painted Holiday artwork, which we placed in simple frames to hang alongside a huge DIY himmeli wreath (painted gold, of course).

    See how you can create your own gallery wall here!


  • Command™ Picture Hanging Strips helped us create the gallery wall without a worry! We could easily replace and move frames around the wreath, without any damage to our wall.
