It's almost Christmas eve and I don't know about you...but my favorite time of the day is not the day but the night! Although the work day is cut short I love the twinkling lights and the glow of this time of year and will be a bit sad to see it go. Today I have 3 small ways to add holiday glow to your home that I've been enjoying year long in my home.

Now here are a few tips to add that glimmering touch to your holiday home...

3 Tips For Adding Holiday Glow To Your Home

1.  METALLIC MIX

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.

2. COVETING CANDLES

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.

3. TWINKLE TWINKLE

Why restrict outdoor lighting to the holiday season? Twinkle lights hung from the trees or simply strung across a small porch or patio can be a year round touch in most places. We don't sit out here every night, but the radiance of twinkle lights are spectacular when viewed from inside.
