Any seasoned Pinterest pinner will tell you that mirrored furniture is big for 2014. This glamorous look is perfect for many homes. Mirrors naturally reflect the environment around them so they blend away. This has the added effect of making the room look bigger. Especially popular right now are looks inspired by Hollywood Regency style. The mirrored furniture style works well for the bedroom but you can use mirrored furniture in every room of your home.

Metallics are big news in the design world for 2014. Every shade from silver to gold is chic this year. Metallics are always a great counterpoint to a room, whether on a piece of furniture or decorative accent. They add visual interest and texture, plus they can hold their own against bright colors. Create an eclectic look by pairing a few different shades or go for a more classic look by choosing all brushed nickel or brass. Feel free to get creative!

Get the Look: Celine Dion’s Waterfront Home

Great news! Celine Dion has recently listed her Jupiter Island, Florida mansion for sale. However, owning a celebrity’s former home does not come cheap. The gorgeous waterfront home is listed at a whopping $72.5 million dollars. The impressive 5-bedroom estate includes a master bedroom with walk-in closet including an automated rack for clothing and shoes and a wraparound terrace with hot tub. The property also includes a separate 8 bedroom guest house, three pools and a water park. The home was designed by Dion and her husband/manager René Angélil in 2010 and it too over two years to complete the construction.


While a waterfront custom-built home is out of the question for most normal people, it is easy to incorporate some of Celine’s glamorous style into your own home. Here we have broken down the looks from a few of the rooms in this house to give you some design ideas:
