How to Add Texture to Your Home|Shiny Things


This week is all about how to add texture to your home. It’s something that I never truly thought about before but can totally add a ton of warmth and personality to your home.

So first up today, I’m talking about shiny things.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s stuff that’s shiny.

A wedding ring, a diamond necklace, or a shiny chandelier. My eyes are drawn to things that sparkle.

And that’s the first thing on my list for adding texture to your home.

So what exactly qualifies as shiny?




Mirrors add depth and dimension to a room. When placed in rooms with windows, they also help to bounce light around the room, acting as a faux window at times. And who doesn’t like to take a glace at themselves every now and again?



This gold feather wall art was an easy DIY and added texture to an empty wall.


The silver sequin pillow adds a ton of personality to a boring couch.

Whether it’s gold, silver or bronze, metallic elements have the power to add a bit of glam to a space. Gold can scream traditional or it can be so chic when used as an accent. In my opinion, metallic should be used sparingly since it does make such a statement.



The glass vase reflects light from the window



This is one that I never thought as something that would add texture. But glass is shiny and reflects light just as much as a mirror does. A vase here and there or a beautiful glass chandelier can really keep the eye bouncing around your space.

Added in small doses, shiny things can really give your space depth and interest.

I’ll be back tomorrow with some more great tips on how to add texture to your home.
