This year’s gold Christmas decor combines a palette of gold, bronze and caramel along with pops of white, to create a neutral yet rich nod to the holidays.
Have I ever mentioned that I start planning my holiday palette the year before? Yep, a full eleven months or so before Christmas, I usually get inspired by a certain color and start imagining what I’ll be doing the following year.
And last January, I knew that this year I’d be going with a gold Christmas decor palette. A rich mix of golds, bronzes and caramels mixed with white is what I had in mind, and it’s something I’ve never done before!

My Christmases have leaned more toward pastels like French blue or blush pink, or a combination of silver and white. But this mix of bronze and brown is really speaking to me this year. I love the richness it brings!
Plus, it didn’t take much to change from the rusts and browns of fall to bronze and caramel for the holidays!
Each year, I start with the basics – my favorite mercury glass ornaments in either gold or silver – and then mix in one or two new colors. That way, I’m not buying a lot every year and it only takes a few new touches to create an entirely new look!
The only purchase I made this year was the cream and brown felt garland (love!) and a few new bronze and brown ornaments. And yet it feels completely different than anything I’ve ever done before!
On the sofas is a combination of pillows in shades of brown, rust and green. And this adorable c’est Noel pillow was from Target last year, but I’ve found a few on Ebay if you’re interested!
And I did add one new pillow – this Joyeux Noel pillow is so cute, I couldn’t resist!
On the coffee table, I wanted to keep it natural so I combined a bowl of pine cones and a rustic vase filled with greenery.
This wooden nutcracker and a small cedar tree round out the rest of the coffee table vignette.
The wrapped gifts are a mix of white and craft papers with either green or brown ribbons.
