Looking to add some glitz and glam to your home? Create an elegant, cozy and chic space that sparkles — and sparks conversation — by incorporating metallic accents and natural gemstones into your decor, says Abbe Fenimore, who manages the Dallas-based interior design company Studio Ten 25.

“When choosing pieces, opt for those that you will actually use and that aren’t too precious that you’ll be afraid to display,” she says.

Here are Fenimore’s top picks.
