What Houzz contributors are saying:

Islas needed the furniture to be multi-functional in the small space and to add some architectural detailing and texture. Using burlap with semi-gloss paint, the delicate sleek wood of the desk mixed with acrylic/metal chair, the rich organic woods at the vanity with the shimmer of mirror give the room a timeless, organic, and effortless feel.
Subtle shimmer. Mirrored furniture hits us over the head. (There's a time and a place for it, but it's generally not subtle.) The metallics I saw trotting down the runway were soft and sweet and added just a dose of edge to outfits. You can do the same at home. If you're in the market for a new rug, consider mixing wool and silk. The silk will introduce a light shimmer. If that's too spendy, a silky lampshade, pillow or bedskirt will do the trick. Marc Jacobs let a little shimmer peek out from under casual solids to add just a bit of sheen.
Lisa Frederick added this to Horizontal Wainscoting Widens Wall Appeal
In most rooms, wainscoting ends midway up the wall. This one flips that approach by taking the boards close to the ceiling. They draw the eye upward to give the illusion of height, while their horizontal orientation lends the impression of width — a skillful double play.
