A glam living room design is for you if you want your living space to make a show-stopping statement. Glam living rooms tend to be more polished and upscale, and often make a pretty bold statement. They’re great for entertaining, with their highly styled and considered approach. And, while you might go for more of a casual layout in your glam living room, they tend to still look more formal because of the materials and furniture styles. This makes a glam living room not the most kid-friendly style, however. A glam living room can range from comfortably chic to formal and sophisticated. The constant in this style is shiny elements like brass, gold, and silver; luxurious fabrics such as faux fur, silk, and velvet; and an inherent feminine flair. You know what gives a living room an instantly glam vibe? Chairs and sofas with soft, curved frames and tufted or velvet upholstery. (Or, tufted and velvet!) You could also go for more angular and mid-century inspired furniture, glammed up with decadent upholstery and brass legs. Either way, these are not sofas made for sinking into and lounging. Instead, think more of a high-end hotel lobby. You want the shape and style to be very sophisticated. A glam living room is also a perfect place to go for a bold sofa color—perhaps in a deep green, dark navy, or delicate pink? Or, you could opt for a more neutral ivory or grey, and add the pops of color through throw pillows and an accent chair. And, depending on your color scheme and the style of glam you’re shooting for, you’ll either want a patterned rug with rich colors or something very neutral. You could also layer some rugs—adding a smaller sheepskin or cowhide rug over a larger area rug for extra glam vibes. And if you want even more glam living room design inspiration in the realm of colors and materials, you can go in a number of directions. For colors, jewel-tones will give you a more opulent look, pastels create a look that’s more subdued and refined, and black and white palette creates a sophisticated or edgy look. As for materials used in your upholstery, curtains, rug, and other furniture, silk, velvet, dark woods, brass, and fur can all help contribute to a glam living room layout. There are so many materials, colors and variations on glam style, that you can really make this your own! Top off your glam living 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 living 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. There are so many different directions you can take a glam living room.

A bold accent wall can go a long way in making a space feel designed. Add a statement piece of furniture (like this sofa) and you're off to the races! Sprinkle in decorative accents such as sculptural vases, geometric-print textiles, and a favorite artwork and you're working like a designer!
When we think about jewel box rooms, a few thing come to mind. First, bold design followed by an eclectic edge with classic (almost regal) influence. Jewel box rooms are meant to celebrate the artistry of design through use of bold colors and fabrics. We see deep, saturated velvets combined with dark walls to create an almost, "hidden cabinet of curiosities" vibe that sparkles with unexpected delights on every surface.
Our designers are experimenting with the 2021 Benjamin Moore Paint Color of the Year, Aegean Teal. More subdued than what might immediately come to mind when you think of teal, this color is almost a robin’s egg blue–and is perfect for nearly any room in your home. We love playing with the cool undertones in this wall color–and off-setting them with a warm accent such as this mustard sofa!
