Guest Picks: 20 Ways to Add Sparkle and Shine to a Room
I'm an Everyday Mama to three and a San Diego-based freelance writer. I love everything that has to do with shopping and being the talk of the neighborhood when I find the perfect necklace or the perfect side table. My style philosophy is simple: that being a mom does not mean that you should sacrifice style. You can be a mom and stylish! When she's not shopping or writing about shopping, she can be found playing with her three kids at the park. My favorite stores are Target, Nordstrom and Anthropologie but when it comes to finding the perfect pair of jeans, no store is off limits. For more style finds, you can follow me on Twitter @EverydayMama, Facebook, and visit my daily blog at http://www.everydaymama.com.

Although the holidays are coming to an end and it’s almost time to ring in a new year, I like my house to hold the same sparkle and shine as it does during the holiday season. While you don’t want to overdo the glitter and sequins, it’s nice to add a little bit here and there to add a touch of glamour and excitement to any room in the house. Add a tassel garland, a shiny side table or just a couple of candles to spark up your house all year long in 2014. — Christine from Everyday Mama
