We all know how the right necklace or earrings can dress up an outfit.

In much the same way, a little bit of luster can dress up a room.

Shimmery fabrics and finishes are popping up on showroom floors, and add glamour when we work them into our home decor. They can take a variety of forms — silver leaf on a chair frame, for example; luminous silk on an accent pillow; or perhaps a scattering of metallic threads woven into a linen upholstery fabric.

Like so many trends, the look sashayed off the fashion runway and into the home. Think glazed fabrics and leather handbags with an oyster-shell sheen. See Saturday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette HomeStyle for top picks to put some shimmer into your home’s decor.
