  • We earn a commission for products purchased through some links in this article.
  • It may be getting darker now it's autumn but fear not the trend for high shine metallics and luxe fabrics means that our homes can continue to shine bright!

    Last weekend saw the return of all things sparkly with Strictly Come Dancing back on our screens, giving us our seasonal sequin and glitter fix to bridge the gap between summer festivals and Christmas. Inspiring us to embrace the glitz and glamour, we are dedicated to getting the real fix by embracing the luxe look for our homes with reflective glass accessories, sequin embellished everything and metallic touches.

    If you only buy one thing this week we recommend it be one of these glamtastic buys…

    1. Sparkly storage


    Get organised while adding out and out glamorous shimmer to any setting with these fabulous sequin baskets. The rustic handcrafted straw baskets are giving the glam factor thanks to a ‘dipped’ effect with sequin embellishments on the bottom half. They are also available in a high-shine silver sequin.

    2. Quirky candle holders

    You can’t beat candlelight for creating ambience in the autumn. Brass and gold metallic finishes on lanterns and candle holders not only adds an extra layer of reflection it extenuates a flickering flame by adding an additional warm rose-tinted glow. Seen here the hexagon lantern and the star candleholder add character to candlelight.
