Go Glam: How to Add Glamour to Your Home

Glamorous decor full of crystal, sequins, shimmery golds and shiny chrome is quickly becoming one of the top trends in interior design. Reminiscent of old Hollywood and silver screen starlets, glam decor can make your home look like a million bucks. We've gathered some of the best designer tips to add glamour to your home and gathered our favorite glam looks, because as Loretta Young puts it "glamour should begin at home."


Mood lighting is an important part of getting a glamorous vibe. Often lighting is overlooked when planning the decor for a room, but candles, lamps, and pretty pendants not only provide the perfect lighting for your glam decor to shimmer under, but they add glamour themselves. Try a crystal pendant light paired with gold candles or go for sleek chrome lamps with crystal accents. Place gold glass candles on top of a mirrored coffee table top to draw attention and make your table glimmer. Or place a crystal lamp in front of a mirror with an antique gold finish. They will play off each other and the light will make a silver finish sparkle.



Mirror, mirror on the wall, you are truly the fairest mirror of them all! A beautiful mirror can add sparkle and timeless glamour to a room. When it comes to creating a classic Hollywood ambiance look for mirrors with gold and silver finishes especially with antiquing or look for regal scroll edging and ornate detailing.  A large mirror like this one creates Hollywood romance and can create an illusion of more space which is great for a smaller room in the house or apartment.



You may have grown up being told not to mix gold and silver, but this is no longer true of jewelry and it certainly isn't true for home decor. Gold and silver play off each other perfectly and create depth in a room. The only trick is to mix several pieces of both gold and silver for a good balance.


The Hollywood Regency look is everywhere right now and it's all about the glamour of 1930s Hollywood. If you want to add a touch of this super glam and vintage style to your room try a chesterfield sofa with plush red upholstery or a feminine frame with soft creamy upholstery. Look for classic, glamorous details like tufting, nail head studs or wing backs.

While this look is inspired by an era gone-by, it is still incredibly modern and relevant, because who doesn't want to feel like Hollywood royalty in their own home?!
