You love a touch of sparkle and glam, especially when it comes to interior design – but glam can go wrong fast. Plus, you’re not too thrilled about breaking the budget on the trendiest, most lustrous decorative vase or ornament. The solution: if you’re on the lookout for ways to bring elegant shine into your space, check out our top five creative ways to use pearls in home décor.

Whether you’re in the process of setting up the nursery or looking for ways to decorate your rather bare walls, a chic mobile / wall hanging that showcases the beauty of pearls is a welcomed addition. Take the bohemian-inspired route and use dainty florals, add a natural touch with twine and wood, plus your selection of sparkly crystals and loose white pearls. The results: a definite upgrade from the plastic-loaded mobiles on the market, plus the surest way to add a chic touch to any space, be it the baby’s room or your living-room.

Napkin rings certainly elevate your dinnertime experience. And if you love sharing your culinary skills and hosting is your game, a new set of chic napkin rings that bring on the shine is a great idea. There are many ways to go about this little DIY pearl ring project. Option one: use thick metallic wire and only a few accent pearls (preferably larger in size or uniquely shaped like Baroque types). Alternatively, go for option two and use a variety of pearls all around on a thinner wire. Regardless of your choice, the verdict is in: upgraded, gourmet-restaurant level ambiance at your next dinner party.
3. Create a Chic Way to Welcome Light into Your Home

You love the look of thick, luxe curtains, draping flawlessly al the way to the floor. But while the heavy curtain look might be agreeing with your interior design mojo, it isn’t the most practical when in need of a little sunlight. Extra heavy curtains pulled to the side of your windows are your rather impractical go-to, but if you’re on the hunt for ideas on upgrading your window treatment game with a shiny touch, look no further than this chic DIY project, loaded with pearls. The easy route: simply use two identical pearl necklaces as curtain holders (ideally, go for two or three-layer pieces). Alternatively, you can craft your very own curtain holder using a mish mash of gems, including pearls and semi-precious stones for a look that’s slightly on the more eclectic side.
4. Glam up Your Halloween Decor

Halloween is just around the corner and you aren’t thrilled with the idea of welcoming an overabundance of bright orange in your home. No worries, as this year is all about glammed up Halloween festivities – and that starts with your décor. Instead of the predictable orange and black color combo, take the elegant route and opt for an all-white Halloween, complete with this next chic DIY. Use mini pumpkins in white and glam them up with loose pearls and other bling in ivory tones. Still on brand, yet a far departure from the spooky and boldly hued décor pieces available on the market.
5. Opt for Festive Vibes with Pearly Stars
