Tuesday's Tip: Activate with Shine


Today's designer tip is to remember to bring shine into your space! It does not have to be a disco ball, but a subtle bit of sheen activates a whole room and magnifies light. Using a combination of textures and finishes is a wonderful way to make a space feel truly layered and rich. It could be a metallic accessory, a glossy painted finish, a mirror, a silky fabric, a polished stone or wood surface or an architectural element - but no matter it is, what every space needs a little shine!

Here are some examples I think are especially lovely . . .









Do you agree?
Revisit an interior you just adore . . . does it too incorporates an element of shine?

It's like beautiful jewellery - just a piece or two transforms 'tasteful' into 'fabulous'.
