Finishing touches in luxe materials will give the palette an edge. Lacquer, brass, tortoise shell, shagreen, and blown glass will fit right in with the colors and textiles and will give the room shimmer. Consider lacquer trays, brass picture lights or bookshelf railings, a cocktail table with a tortoise-shell top, tortoise-shell picture frames and boxes, shagreen-wrapped side tables or small shagreen accessories (coasters, boxes, picture frames, etc.), and blown-glass bottles in jewel tones.
