Decorate with shimmer and shine – 10 of the best ideas

10 images

Embrace the spark side with the addition of bold and brilliant shine. From the simple light-reflective qualities of mirrors and sequins to the hints of glimmer from metallic surfaces (and even textiles), shimmer and shine is a bright idea. Start big – if you dare – and take a cue from this artwork that sits in a fairly traditional living room. What a way to bring the dark neutral scheme alive. The scale and position is thoughtful and wonderfully enveloped by the more sombre surroundings.
