Glamour interior design is the opposite of minimalism. It is richness and abundance of accessories. It draws from many sources and eras, such as art deco, baroque, gothic style, eclectic style, and many more. It can be traditional or modern.
The simple question of how to paint walls is not so simple anymore when you have decided on glamour style. Consider wallpaper with ornamental or shiny pattern on at least one wall in the room. Damask patterns work great on the walls.
The furniture needs to have rather complex lines and curves. The sofas or armchairs can be modern and simple but then more accessorizing is needed, therefore more traditional furniture will look better. The dressers, tables, bookcases and other furniture should have lacquered, mirror-like surfaces. The shape can be geometrical or abstract, depending on the direction you would like to go with your interior. Materials used can be glass or dark wood (glamour interiors are generally dark).
Glamour decor uses a lot of metallic elements: gold, silver, copper. Transparent home decor accessories can also work, such as transparent desk lamps, for example. Abstract art pieces made of metallic silver or gold will compose well with the surroundings. Even wall art can have some metallics in it. It’s all about excess.
Textiles are another important element in glamour interior style. The interior needs to be stuffed with pillow covers. They can be metallic, but also furry, leathery, patterned, silky. Rugs can be fluffy or rather normal with damask or animal patterns.
Lighting is essential to the glamorous space we are designing. First and foremost, ceiling lamps are supposed to be chandeliers or modern variations on chandeliers. You also should incorporate sconces and desk lamps into the interior. After all, a lot of light is needed to reflect in lacquered furniture, metallic pieces of art and mirrors. Second of all, place candles in every room. The long ones are very elegant when put in a beautiful metallic candlestick.
In addition to ordinary furniture, such as sofas, armchairs and tables, it is excellent to have ottomans, benches, chaise lounges or poufs. They also have to be ornamental and curvy. Ideally they would be quilted, and upholstered with faux fur, velvet or plush.
Needless to say, personal things need to be put aside in drawers and other places. Glamour interior does like to have excess decorations but nothing more; otherwise it will become cluttered. Such interiors are not supposed to be cozy.
