Leave it to Millie Bobby Brown to make the mundane magnificent. The actress has shared a TikTok in her gray and silver bathroom and it perfectly captures how to brighten a space.

Brown's bathroom idea incorporates white paint alongside a high gloss, sparkly tile wall. Behind her, we see her large windows filling the space with natural light and the long rectangular mirror reflecting it. Because of its playful, bright qualities, we predict this look will be a huge interior design trend for 2024.

The beautiful, shimmering bathroom wall has gained attention from design experts. Acclaimed Westchester-based interior designer Nina Lichtenstein tells Homes & Gardens: 'Millie Bobby Brown, known for her impeccable taste on and off the screen, has turned heads with a dazzling design choice in her bathroom—an awe-inspiring sparkly wall that adds a touch of magic to her daily routine. This unique feature, a glittering statement, imparts visual impact and enhances the overall ambiance of her space.'

Nina believes that home design should capture a family’s unique spirit by how it serves the family's daily needs while nourishing the soul. She has been celebrated for designing, renovating, and building elegant living spaces.

'Moreover, the sparkly wall plays a strategic role in amplifying natural light within the bathroom,' adds Lichtenstein. 'Positioned opposite a window, the wall acts as a reflective surface, bouncing light rays across the room. This interaction not only brightens the space but also creates a dynamic interplay of light and texture, transforming the ambiance throughout the day.'

Brown's bathroom mirror is another aspect that adds brighteness to the space. Kathy Kuo, award-winning NYC-based interior designer adds: 'The sparkly mirror in this bathroom design gives the overall look a feeling of youthfulness and whimsy. I love that the sparkles are subtle and they feel fun and playful without feeling at all gimmicky or distracting. It's the perfect slightly trendy touch for a young person like Millie!'

'The presence of a silver mirror hanging against the wall creates a harmonious relationship,' adds Lichtenstein. 'The reflective frame of the mirror emphasizes the sparkling texture of the wall, enhancing its brilliance and adding depth to the overall aesthetic.'

Lichtenstein concludes, 'Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the sparkly wall transforms the bathroom experience. Whether preparing for the day or winding down in the evening, Millie Bobby Brown's bathroom becomes a sanctuary of serenity and sparkle. The wall adds an element of joy and playfulness to her daily rituals, making mundane moments feel extraordinary.'
