Bring on the bling. At least that is what fans of metallic finishes are saying. There is no shortage of high shine metals among home decor trends, especially at the high end. If an ultra luxury piece is not for you, look for occasional tables, chairs and accessories that offer highly polished metals that find with your interior and budget. It is perfect for adding a metallic focal point to a space.
A lampshade does more than just soften the light emanating from the bulb: It balances the height of the lamp and gives it enough visual heft to make it an important design element. Nothing looks worse than a lamp with a shade that is far too small for its base. According to Architectural Digest, there is a simple formula to make sure you have the right size lampshade for a table lamp: Measure the base of your lamp as well as the height. Whatever shape of shade you choose, it should be twice as wide as the base, and about one-third of the lamps total height. The shade should also reflect the style of the base. When it comes to floor lamps, the shade should be at least 18 inches and Pooky notes that the larger and more open your room, the larger the floor lampshade can be.
The other way to think about this is decorating in layers. Take a look at the room below. Yes it has a formal air, but it is certainly not stuffy. The sofa on the right has a wooden frame and is very formal. The armchair across the room also has wood, but it is white, and the second sofa is more casual with no visible wood at all. The coffee table and side tables are all different and not formal, yet they work well with the grand chandelier and gold framed portraits on the walls.
Pillows can be transformative decor piece, adding a jolt of color or print, along with an extra dose of comfort. But just the same, you can have too much of a good thing. For a while, the trend was for piles of decorative pillows on the sofa, the bed and in armchairs. Now we know better because to many pillows can make an otherwise streamlined space feel cluttered. Instead, give more power to your accent pillows by using a carefully edited collection of colors, sizes and motifs to elevate your space. This chair features just one small but dramatic accent pillow. More of them would not make the chair any more special.
