All that Glitters

      Glamor and Glitter

Nothing speaks more to glamor than metallic's, and this year brings Metallic's and all that Glitters to  all things home decor.

Metallic threading, matte & shiny surfaces create contrast and reflective surfaces as shown in fabrics such as the velvet covered square panels by Kravet.  Who would have ever thought they would incorporate metalic threads into velvet?

Even the tablecloth  below, made of linen and cotton has metallic painted leaves.

Wall paper,
Metallic on wallpaper certainly makes a bold statement.

Glam Dining Room,
By combining different elements that reflect light such as the crystal chandelier,  the iridescent wallpaper, and the tufted velvet chairs in pale gold upholstery, glam is achieved.

 Whether used sparingly in fabrics, combined with accessories; Metallics in the home are sure to shine in 2012.  Let me know what you think?  I love them but certainly think a little goes a long way.
