If you don’t want to decorate to the point of being kitsch, here is some understated decor to add sparkle to your home this Christmas…

How do some people manage to decorate their own home for Christmas seemingly minimally, effortlessly, and yet their entire home reflects that sparkly festive look without looking over-decorated?

The answer is decor that adds sparkle and shines without having an obvious Christmas theme. It’s gold photo frames, shimmering vases and metallic candle holders which all reflect the sparkle of the Christmas tree without screaming ‘Santa is coming to town!’

Here is a selection of timeless pieces – all from Mr Price Home – that could be displayed year-round, taken out for the festive season only or given as elegant Christmas gifts:

Print some Christmas photos from years ago, a recent photo session or festive prints you found online and put them in a collection of gold gallery frames (20x25cm) (R159,99 each) to add a sophisticated and sentimental touch to your Christmas decor scheme.
