Glam Design Ideas

Glam style is all about the drama and elegance. With materials that shine, like lucite, crystal, and brilliant metallics, this design style is nothing short of dazzling. If you’re looking for a show-stopping style that boasts a sophisticated flair but has an abundance of luxurious textures and intriguing patterns, then glam is for you. Glam spaces tend to be more polished and upscale, and often make a pretty bold statement. In general, they’re great for entertaining, with their highly styled and considered approach.  Glam room designs can come to life in a variety of ways. They can be subtle, with hints of sparkle throughout, or full-on, over-the-top glam with luxurious features from floor to ceiling! And the materials, color palette, and specific furniture you choose will help set the tone for the style of glam you want to create. Going for Old Hollywood glam? Opt for a black and white color palette with pops of jewel tones. Want something more feminine and chic? Mix bright whites and pastels. Love the drama? It’s all about the jewel tones and animal prints. As you layer in different elements, remember that you can be as over-the-top as you want! So, mix those prints and patterns for a look that’s glam but totally unique to you. But whatever direction you choose, glam design is an upscale style that’s dramatic, but also refined and elegant.  As for materials used in your upholstery and furniture, silk, velvet, dark woods, brass, and fur can all help contribute to a glam feeling. There are so many materials, colors and variations on glam style, that you can really make this your own! Sofas, chairs, and beds with soft, curved frames and tufted, velvet, or leather upholstery give a room an instantly glam vibe. Or, you could go for more angular and mid-century inspired furniture, glammed up with decadent upholstery and brass legs. You can also consider furniture with ornate carvings, those finished in a high-gloss lacquer, or even desks and chairs in lucite or acrylic! And definitely consider adding a chic bar cart to your glam dining room or living room! Top off a glam room design with glittering materials like glass, crystal, and shiny metal in the decor. Hang some bold, large-scale art and statement mirrors with interesting frames. And don’t forget to layer the lighting—because in a glam room, you don’t just want a single light source. Instead, work in a mix of chandeliers, wall sconces, floor and table lamps, and plenty of candles. While glam spaces can have more casual layouts, they tend to still look more formal because of the materials and furniture styles. However, it is a bit of a high-maintenance look. With all of the shiny materials and luxurious fabrics, this look includes, it’s not the most durable, forgiving, or kid-friendly style. But the extra care and maintenance is worth it for the lavish, distinct space you’ll end up with.
