All That Glitters

Shiny, bright, glimmering glitz on a wall? Yes, please.

I've been seeing pops of glitter wallpaper around the internet block lately and I'm a huge fan. The trend seems to be focused on one wall, which is understandable seeing that a whole room of glitter may be overwhelming.
Clockwise from top: Pink | BrownBlack | Silver

Below are some of my favorite patterns. If I were to choose, I'd do the silver skulls in a mud room or lining the interior of a closet. Why? Because I'm a rebel, that's why.

I do have one question for those who have tried this fabulous look: Does the glitter "shed"? I would think it'd create a bit of a mess. Do tell!

  1. I read that you were supposed to take a gallon of glue and mix in the glitter. The glue dries clear and then ta-da! And I think the skulls are just that mixture, painted over a stencil. I wouldn't think the glitter would shed if you do it that way..? Maybe..

  2. I think a glittery chevron would make for a pretty cool entrance way! I'd love to look into this more... but I hope it doesn't shed. Dean can't take much more glitter on the floor!

  3. Um, this is kind of amazing. I would totally do this to an accent wall (and probably stare at it all day long!). Love it!

  8. Wow what a statement! I'm in love with the gold chevron wall! I love the idea although I've never tried it, but I wonder if you'd constantly be vacuuming up glitter.

  13. i've never seen a glittery wall before.
    Being a minimalist in architecture school, I've always loved harsher colours and structured lines. but I think glittery walls make for a bit of a more softer and girlier approach to an interior that I never thought to like before.

  14. I am drawn to the darker glitter you showed; then it is sort of reminiscent of pyrite or some other natural stone instead of being overtly girly, and flashy. Would look interesting as a small accent wall with another texture like brick or river rock?!

  15. This makes me so happy that pretty sparkly walls exist, but so sad that my land lord is a total pain in the butt about painting - maybe in Chicago I'll have better luck, haha.

  23. I want my whole apartment to be glittered! ..But I feel the boyfriend would disagree. Oh well! Maybe one day we'll own a house and I'll have a craft room covered in glitter. A girl can dream! I'm a new follower.
