The taste for accent metallics has matured into full-fledged confidence, with a wealth of glittering opportunities coming to the fore. Some have classic good looks – cue Graham and Green’s Velletri chandelier – while others are more about making a statement through bold prints, such as Harlequin’s Segments wallpaper. The details shout louder, the look is more exuberant and yet the overall effect can still remain refined and elegant. Head-to-toe shine can be brash, so bold hits of bright blue are champion in this scheme, bringing a look of everyday glamour to the dining space. Splashes of playful bright yellow are unexpected but effective too, particularly with Ligne Roset’s Ura mirror, which is seen used here as a tray on the dining table.
