Color and shine are essential when going for the ultimate glamorous look. According to designer Jonathan Adler, to get that luxurious Hollywood feel, all you need to do is add a touch of drama. Combining pieces with the glitz of Tinsel town can turn any home into the talk of the town.
Glamour is a spirit that you can add to any style. One of the most important things to make a room glamorous is a real sense of theater, which can come from hanging items plus glossy and rich materials.
There's nothing glamorous about this bedroom. The homeowner finds it boring and wants it to be comfortable and cozy.
Designer Mela Catanzaro helps give glamorous new life to homeowner Karen Bendak's bedroom: Luxurious bed linens, elegant curtains, a punch of color and lots of sparkling accents create glamour and drama with little effort.
Black and white plus one accent color is a great recipe for glamour. It doesn't have to be black and white, but one of the key elements to this look is having a sense of rigidity in the color scheme.
Going glam couldn't be easier. Just remember to add gloss by using mirrors, acrylic and lacquered furnishings and accessories, keep the color palette simple and dress furnishings in rich materials. Platinum pottery and mirrors add sparkle to this bookshelf.
