What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Alter the level of illumination. It’s likely that there’s a room in your house that isn’t perfectly lit. Some spaces lack windows and power sources for light fixtures. One venerable decorating trick for underlit rooms is to use a mirror to bounce light around. But mirrors have size limitations, and seeing one’s reflection may not be desirable in some spaces. Wallpaper with a metallic sheen can offer similar illuminating benefits while also adding eye-catching pattern. Here, a metallic trellis wallpaper brightens the back wall of this otherwise dim, slender powder room.
