Bling in the Home 21 Nov 2008
Versailles Palace
When does glitzy turn gaudy ?

The economy may be looking scuffed, but the furniture and interior design world is revelling in anything glitzy – mirrored furniture, gold wallpaper – the kind of glamour that got kicked out when we decided to embrace the flat-packs of IKEA. A new exhibition of historic wallpaper shows that an appetite for glitter was always bound to resurface – so join us to find out to do gold in the modern living room without being gaudy.
