How to introduce the ‘Bling’ interiors trend into your home with stunning accessories

When it comes to statement homeware this season, things are taking an extremely glamorous turn indeed.

From metallic accents of copper and brass, to iced glassware and showstopper lighting, interiors have gone ‘bling’.

But before you cower from the sparkle and shine, take note; this trend can be dialled up or down depending on your room and tastes.

If you love all things decadent, then go all out with large accessories and chandeliers. If not, try introducing a chrome accent here, a copper trim there, and soon you’ll have a very modern twist on glam decor.

Intrigued? Need some inspiration? Here’s a guide to dipping your toe into the autumn trend.

Balance Shine With Sparkle

When it comes to bling, there is such a thing as too much. So build up your accessories slowly, balancing shimmer, sparkle and shine with different textures and finishes. A glossy marble side table teams well with a shimmering silver vase, for example, especially when set against a matt wall.

Pearlescent Works Too

If you’re not one for outright shine, try coming at the trend from a different angle with pearlescent finishes instead. Our iridescent table lamp for example, nods to the trend gently.

Bling Doesn’t Have To Mean Sparkle

The beauty of this trend is that you can interpret it as you like. Bling can mean metallic finishes like rustic copper and bronze, too. We love this copper effect geometric side table paired with the gold effect mosaic lamp and rose clock.

Lights Are A Quick Way To Nail It

If you want to capture the look in one key piece, look to lighting. A statement light fixture like the five light Marie Therese chandelier, will help you add some serious bling instantly.

Don’t Forget Small Touches

Ideal for carrying the trend right through a room, small touches such as scatter cushions with metallic accents help pull everything together.
