Tempted to inject glamour into your home but not sure what accessories to plump for? Here are our top tips on how to pick bold accessories to add elegance and individuality to any home.

1. A Pinterest-worthy picture wall

Group a collection of pictures and mirrors together to add an eclectic feature to your hallway. Worried that it will look too messy? Keep all the frames to a similar colour palette to keep a unified theme.

2. A statement mirror

An oversized gilt mirror will not only bounce light around any lounge, it also creates theatricality and drama. Search out a vintage version to add heritage to your room.

3. Fresh flowers

Flowers are a perennially chic finishing touch to any room at any time of year. Don’t go over the top with elaborate arrangements – a simple bunch of daffodils in an earthenware vase is a beautiful way to add a thoughtful element to a room.

4. Dramatic light fittings

In the dining area, start from the ceiling and work down. Dramatic light fittings hanging low over the table add drama – choose an industrial style for a modern edge.

Chandeliers have been a popular choice for many decades, but they are frequently now being used to add drama to more unexpected rooms such as the kitchen. Choose a classic in crystal or something a little quirkier to match your personal style.

5. Luxurious fabrics

A range of sumptuous fabrics is an easy way to add glamour to the bedroom. Texture is key – look for shaggy faux fur throws or sumptuous velvets which are inviting and tactile.
