Gold Christmas Decorations: Go Rustic Glam at Home!

Bring the Brilliance of Gold to Your Home for Christmas!

Looking for a Christmas color palette to “deck the halls” with that’s both festive and elegant? Look no further. Gold is it! In a gilded finish with a muted sheen, gold ornaments can be combined with holiday greenery to create a most stylish and sophisticated rustic glam look for your home this Christmas. Come gather decorating inspiration from our own styled set. *This post contains some affiliate links.

Make a Glamorous Entryway Display of Decorations

Set the mood of elegance from the moment visitors – and you, too, of course – arrive at your entryway! Create a lush pine garland to frame the door, embellished with gold Christmas balls wired together into bunches from large to small. Complement the gold with faux leaves in metallic colors, and add holiday sparkle with fairy lights. (You’re in luck! We’ve got a tutorial on this here.)

Living Room & Coffee Table Décor in Gold Decorations


Extend that same luxe look to the interiors of your home. In the living room, have gold accents dominate the scene – from your coffee table graced by a centerpiece in green and gold, with gold balls alongside, to your Christmas tree laden with gleaming ornaments, ribbons, and tassels.


On your sofa, dress your throw pillows in gold covers for the holidays. Then, when expecting company, set out wine or champagne on your coffee table, accompanied by a minimalist-style arrangement in a low bowl – again in the colors of gold and green, with white flowers and red berries.

Modern Meets Organic: Dining Tablescape & Centerpieces


For an equally elegant Christmas tablescape, extend the burnished gold elements to the place settings via mini frames holding place cards. Do the same with the centerpieces, using gold taper candles and decorative balls.


Up close, you see how you can simply tuck gold Christmas balls in among the faux flowers and metallic leaves of the centerpieces. Then, choose other elements – like the starburst thistles shown here – that are also aglitter in gold.


You can keep the connection between your indoor decor and your entryway garland by using the same metallic leaves, interspersed here and there.

A Gilded Christmas Tree


Adorn a towering Christmas tree (if you have the luxury of space!) with an overflow of ornaments, ribbons, bead garlands, and tassels – all in gold, of course, for a polished and pulled-together rustic glam finish.


At the foot of the tree, coordinate your presents with the overall decor, too! Choose holiday wrappers, bows, and gift trims in gold to create a striking display. Think of paper in hues of coral, gold, and silver.
