Glam originated from the word “glamorous”. Glam is like having the whole package of luxury, glitters, sparkles, shimmers, elegance, and chic all at the same time.
Being glamorous gives the whole vibe of being wild and confident in your way.
Compared to other styles, glam can unleash your inner diva and let your imagination run wild without restrictions.
Let’s see the tricks and tips for incorporating glam into your living space!
The furniture and accessories are the main focus of glam. So, it is best to keep the color palette as neutral as possible.
For example, shades of white, tan, gray, and cream for ceilings and walls can serve as foundation for the furniture to stand out.
With walls and ceilings as basic canvas, acrylics, pastels, and metallics can be used as accent colors on furniture to make the whole room pop!
Selecting the correct color palette means a lot in glam style. So that it is easy for the eyes and not losing its own dramatic flair in the meantime.
Large and oversized pieces of furniture are often chosen to fit perfectly to the luxurious and elegant aesthetic of glam.
On the other hand, furniture with elegant curves and soft angles are also recommended instead of those with ordinary boxy, sleek lines. For example, tufted sofas with upholstered acrylic legs is a great choice for glam living homes.
Aside from that, being sparkly and shimmery is a must for glam! That’s why mirrors, crystals, and metals are always used for decors to capture attention.
Since they can reflect light and make the whole room classy and chic.
Some pretty good decors that fit the aesthetic perfectly are golden-framed mirrors and golden bar carts.
A bar cart is a very popular accessory back in the 1930s that is used for storing glassware to host guests.
Both of the decor have metallic elements that can add more style and chic to the room.
Combining multiple different textures together is another tip to be glam.
For example, rich fabric textures like faux fur, silk, velvet, leather, and sequins can provide balance to the space. This is because the fabric textures can give more warmth to the space which are in cooler shades.
Rugs with animal prints, geometric patterns and damask patterns as accents to give more drama and character to the space.
Marble is the new trend for glam. More and more marble is used in various furniture such as countertops, coffee tables, and many others.
This is because smooth varnishing of marble furniture provides a shiny and classy aesthetic to the space.
