Were you as hooked on the London 2012 Olympics as I was? Every night, I could not wait to see the prime time coverage!
If you’re missing the excitement of the games, try adding a few of these accessories to your décor in order to help you bring the gold, silver, and bronze feeling into your home all year long.
This beautiful capiz shell chandelier ($69.99) captures all three hues in one piece. Hung over a kitchen table it would add a coastal feel to the space, or add it to a tween girl’s bedroom for a touch of sophistication.
Spruce up your dining room table with this metallic bronze dinnerware ($24 for the set). They would mix well with all white dishes, or for added interest, include a pop of color – like a purple tablecloth or an orange flower arrangement.
Another option in the dining room would be to pair the silver Dahlia placemat ($9.95) with a shimmery gold napkin ($1.95). Add a crisp white tablecloth, and line the middle of the table with the silver and gold votives shown below ($4.95) to complete the Olympic inspired tablescape.
Bring a touch of elegance to your bedroom with the soft and romantic Vanilla Glacé duvet cover from Saffron Marigold (Queen ~ $159.99).
To compliment the Vanilla Glacé duvet cover, hang this pearl, gold, and silver mirror ($179.95) over the dresser. Who wouldn’t feel pretty looking into this beautiful and sparkly mirror every morning?
The playful dot pattern on this pillow ($32) keeps it from feeling too formal. You could use it on a sun porch, in a living room, or in a bedroom as a fun accent to the rest of the space.
To create a unique focal point over a kitchen island, choose one of these bronze industrial pendant lights ($129-$145) and use two or three of them to line the island.
Finally, if you prefer just a small reminder of the Olympics, try this group of three mini mercury glass vases ($49.50). Keep them empty for a no-fuss accessory, or fill each one with a single stem for a simple arrangement.
