Decorating with Crystals for a Glamorous, Natural Look

One of my favorite trends lately is decorating with crystals and geodes. These beautiful structures are believed to have various healing properties depending on the type of crystal, but even if you don’t believe in that aspect of them they still make for a stunning addition to your decor.

What’s great about them is that no two crystals are the same. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colors that allow you to find the perfect ones for you. Even just one small crystal can add some texture and earthy beauty to a surface or vignette, but you can take it a step further and display a collection for even more of an impact.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of decorating with crystals for a chic, natural appeal.

10 Bedrooms with Exposed Brick That Are Full of Character

Exposed brick is one of those elements that never go out of style and can always be counted on to bring character to a space. Though they are most often associated with lofts, they suit a variety of decorating styles including traditional, modern, farmhouse and even glamour.

Mixing contrasting elements with brick is one of the easiest ways to create intriguing, eye-catching design. A glamorous chandelier, for example, stands out even more when paired with the rough surface of the brick. The same goes for smooth, clean lines of modern design. When it comes to a popular style like farmhouse, brick fits seamlessly into the look and adds some great texture and charm to the decor.

Here are 10 bedrooms with exposed brick that show that even in this relaxing space, brick can be a fantastic element to play with.
