Give your home a hit of glam with River Island’s home collection, from leopard cushions to trays for your trinkets.
Even the most restrained of us can be seduced by glamour from time to time. It’s hard to completely ignore gold detailing, in-your-face patterns and over the top fringe, and the sheer unadulterated maximalism of these details can intoxicate just about anyone.
River Island’s home collection is made for exactly that impulse, the one where you can image yourself living in an ornate palace, surrounded by luxury. You may be using the cushions to brighten up your faded bedspread rather than adorn a gold-leafed chaise lounge, but if you ever happen to get your hands on that palace, it’ll all fit right in.
If Versace Home is your ideal look, but you just can’t drop €300 on a fringed tiger cushion, look no further. The collection has a range of baroque-inspired cushions, all at €25 each. Scatter them across your sofa, favourite chair, bed, or just everywhere for a truly decadent look.
Being a glam lady, you’ll, of course, have many trinkets and jewels left nonchalantly around your home (it still counts if they’re from Penneys). Keep track of them with this colourful dish (€20), and you’ll spend less time looking for your favourite giant earrings.
All glamorous people know the powerful effect that candlelight can have, so create that little frisson in any room with this gold lantern, €25. Just add a candle for the ultimate mood lighting.
Show off your favourite picture from your far-flung travels, or just your most glam selfie in this ornate frame, €15 (if anyone asks, tell them it’s a self-portrait, and that all glamorous people have them).
You’re probably looking for somewhere to put all the flowers your countless admirers send on a daily basis, so this vase (€25) would certainly be a start.
