Shimmer & ShineJune, 2013
Soft colors, bold metallic finishes, and cool geometric patterns create a Deco-chic look that’s as livable as it is unabashedly luxurious.
For an instant attitude infusion, choose metallic wallpaper with an oversized, naturalistic pattern.
Make your walls or furnishings gleam with a coat of metallic paint, like Benjamin Moore's metallic gold, 2163-40, or metallic silver, 2132-60. benjaminmoore.com
A textured, silver-leaf ottoman can work double-duty as a cocktail table and extra seating for guests.
More than just mood lighting, the right lamp can become a sculptural element beside a sofa, or atop a console.
“It’s especially fresh to mix pastels with lighter wood finishes and warm metals like copper and even brass. Just remember, with metallics, a little goes a long way!”
—Sonu Mathew, Senior Interior Designer, Benjamin Moore
Balance high-style shimmer and shine with natural materials and patterns, like accessories made from wood or shell.
