The Hot List: Add a touch of sparkle to your space

If bling's your thing, introduce metallic tints, crystal flourishes and flashes of silver into your space. But easy does it - choose a couple of statement pieces and leave it at that.

1 Metalmania

Metallics are big in fashion right now and we love the look. However, whether it's in your home or in your wardrobe, this is a trend that has to be adopted in moderation. This cushion from Zara Home is particularly bold but will look great set against a dark-coloured sofa.

2 Well-placed vase

Handmade vases by the Dutch brand Pols Potten are now available from the Sofa Studio in Dubai. Standing 70cm high and measuring 50cm in width, the Coral vase makes for a stunning statement piece. You'd better hurry, though - the showroom is only stocking a limited number of each piece.

3 Comfy colour

For a chic accessory that is bound to attract some attention, try this red crystal-embellished cushion from Fendi Casa. You'll get a touch of bling, a pop of colour, some quality craftsmanship and some high design, all in one go.

4 Smouldering love

We love that when this pair of Connect candleholders comes together, a heart-shaped void is formed in the centre. The crystal holders are 30cm and 21cm tall, respectively, and can hold both tall candles and tea lights.


5 Crystal light

If you want to add some sparkle to your space, you'll need some Swarovski Elements. The crystal pieces were used in a host of new lighting installations unveiled during last month's Euroluce and Milan Furniture Fair, including this Aurea chandelier by the Spanish interiors brand Mariner, a special edition piece consisting of 700 crystals of varying shapes and sizes.
