Chloe shares with us her ideas on "Infusing Glamour into Your Interiors"......

If you feel like your home lacks a bit of character and doesn’t really paint a great picture of your own lifestyle and personality, make sure to give it a little makeover and glam it up! Bold colors, intricate furniture and a few handpicked details here and there will definitely help you stir your interior design to the right direction. Here’s how to infuse glamour into your home. 

Be bold with colour: Glamour is everything but minimalist and neutral, so make sure to make a big statement with bold colors and intricate patterns. However, going all-in with colors can make your home look like a circus, so make sure to pick one color or pattern as your primary and then build around it! Also, try to follow a 60-30-10 rule. If you don’t want to go monochrome and wish to use a three-color scheme, decorate 60% of your room with your main color, 30% with your second pick and 10% with your third pick. This will create a well-thought-out, lux space that’s not overwhelming.

Add some bling bling:  One of the first things people imagine when thinking about glamour is shine and sparkles, so make sure to add some bling-bling to your home to spice things up! If you want an easy way to make your space shine, you can upgrade your lighting fixtures. Opt for metal and crystal that will reflect the light and give your space an elegant finishing touch. You can also incorporate some little pizzazz with metallic accents and décor. Metals are very trendy today, especially polished ones that really catch the eye! 

 

Mirror, mirror
Mirrors have always been a sign of prestige and vanity, so make sure to add a few of these reflective surfaces to your home. They will not only serve as beautiful decorative details, but also create an illusion of a larger space! So, no matter if clear or smoky, mirrors can do wonders for your glamorous home. Opt for intricate and ornate frames, especially in more toned-down rooms for an extra touch of glam!

Shape it up:  Add some luxury and glamour to your home with different shapes. Forget about that boxy, cookie-cutter furniture and add personality to your space with some angles and curves that will spark attention from anyone who is welcomed into your home. One amazing furniture element that is truly timeless and glamorous is Barcelona chairs. They were designed almost 90 years ago, but they still hold the title of one of the most recognizable furniture pieces. These chairs have everything you need—elegant leather, attractive curves AND eye-catching angles! Their interesting and elegant design will surely boost your style and add some timeless glamour to your life. Barcelona chairs also come in the ottoman, daybed, bench and even sofa variations! 

Lux it up with fabrics:  Is there anything more luxurious and glamorous than a touch of fur, silk or velvet? These rich materials can make any space look more high-end and expensive. So, consider putting a (faux) fur throw over your sofa, switching your linen decorative pillows for lux, velvet ones and upgrading your window treatment with silk draperies that pool on the ground. Don’t be scared to mix textures (it’s much easier than working with colors) and you’ll end up with a lux tactile experience.

Fresh or faux, flowers tend to evoke the feeling of old, glam mansions, so don’t hesitate to add a touch of nature and softness to the space with Fresh or faux, flowers tend to evoke the feeling of old, glam mansions, so don’t hesitate to add a touch of nature and softness to the space with greenery. Opt for a traditional treatment with a vase or think outside the box by putting flowers in a champagne bucket or a metallic pitcher!

Make sure it’s balanced:  Yes, glamorous interiors can often sit on the edge of looking a bit overwhelming. Having too many shiny details, colors and different textures can make the space look cluttered—and there’s nothing lux and glam about clutter. Strive to find balance!
