Looking for a taste of the glamorous life?
Vintage glam. Modern glam. Contemporary glam. Glamour can be found most anywhere, but you need to know what to look for. For instance, common elements, such as crystal, stainless steel, and dramatic lighting, can take different shapes. And that’s just a start. So what to look for and where to look? Just follow me.
“ If you want to introduce some Glamour into your home, focus on small spaces that can pack a lot of punch, such as powder rooms and entertaining spaces like your dining room, in-home bar, or game room. ”
First, don’t let glamour fool you. Though the look is luxe, it needn’t mean expensive.
The glamorous look and this lifestyle are available in nearly every price point, including your next trip to Target. Their sexy lighting and accessory lines shout out glitz and glam. Cozy up to luxurious towels, leopard rugs, and high-gloss finishes. On the high-end route, I search for glam in vintage furnishings from the 1930s and 1940s that reflect luxury and passion, such as modern glassblown lamps from Italy, as well as plush fabrics, luxurious wall coverings, and faux fur. (I’m totally anti-fur, but I’ve found that a fake can often give the same luscious effect.)
For colors, I love blacks, whites, and grays. When doing white I often use ultra suede because it’s tough as nails and easy to clean. Real suede, on the other hand, is about as impractical as you can get. Most people can’t tell the difference—and it still gets you the “wow” factor. Toss in a faux mink throw and you’ve got glam. Combine the sleek and glam with soft and luxurious and it evokes something soothing and exciting at the same time.
