Add Glamourous Lighting

The time has come to add a bold accent and daring gold fixtures that infuse the room with character. Shiny light fixtures add a chic pop of colour to a monochrome interior design. Focus on purposefully placing accent pieces around your place to deliver subtle glamour. Ambient lighting, such as lamps are also a good choice. Try finding a lampshade with gold lining on the shade for a cozy, golden glow. Or, try a DIY project at home and refresh an old lamp base with gold spray paint.
