As I set out on the streets of New York this morning, clouds hung especially thick and low. Snow is coming this evening, and you can feel it in the air. While I adore the snow, the winters in New York City do tend to keep us hunkered indoors. In order to avoid the blues, sometimes it’s necessary to find a bit of uplifting light on your own. I’ve found on days that are dreary, adding just a touch of sparkle can help brighten even the gloomiest of moods.
Feeling blue? A glitter heel like the ones above from Badgley Mischka are sure to put a little pep in your step, while the sparkly infinity scarf from Anthropologie is sure to put a light in your eyes.
And nothing seems quite so glamorous–and nurturing–as a bit of sparkle in the bathroom.
The rosey chandelier in this bathroom seems to add just enough sparkle to be glam, but not so much as to take away from the great relaxation that can be found at the end of a long day on your feet. Pair with this luxurious, sparkling bubble bar from Lush Cosmetics to keep the sparkle going.
Mirrored and metallic finishes on furniture are another way to bring sparkle to your life and home.
Nothing adds sparkle to a room quite like the reflection of natural light. I just adore the Melange Glamour Floor Mirror. It’s a chameleon in décor styles–it could go mod, glam or transitional depending on its setting–and has hidden storage for all of your jewels. After all, every girl needs a place to store her jewels!
Even if you’re short on space, you can find enough room for the Melange Kenmar Pedestal Table. At just 24 inches wide, it’s small enough to fit into the tightest corners, yet substantial enough to provide space for a cup of coffee and your favorite book. The classic design is a timeless shape and the faux zinc finish gives a glimmer every time the light hits.
The beautiful contrast between the embossed leather detailing and he silver finish on the Melange Amaya Leather Chest is simply stunning. And the jewelry-inspired hardware has the look of elegant cufflinks-the perfect finishing touch to your ensemble. I am in love.
The right touch of sparkle could be just the thing you need to give your décor a little boost this winter. How do you add sparkle to your home?
