What is Glam Interior Design?

Glam is an interior design style that blends an upscale feel with luxurious fabrics, lots of sparkle and clean lines for an elegant space. You probably know it when you see it, but you might not known about all the glam elements needed to create the look.

Let’s breakdown how you can add some glamorous interior design to your space.

Glam Color Palette

Crisp white shades and metallic tones bring in traditional elements of glam design, but you can also create a dramatic look with jewel tones, bold colors and sparkling statement pieces. A minimal color scheme will allow textures, metallic finishes and other exquisite details do the talking. Typically you can achieve modern glam with a combination of a few colors:

  • metallic (gold or silver)
  • neutral colors (black or white)
  • accent color (pink, grey, etc.)

Extravagant Lighting

Statement light fixtures can create a focal point and really pull together the glam décor in your home.

Tufted Furniture

Tufted chairs, sofas and headboards can add a lot of shape and dimension to a space. Neutral colors help accentuate the shape of the tufts.

Gold Trim

Metallic accents on coffee tables, nightstands, dining room tables or in living rooms can make simple pieces pop.

Faux Fur

Faux fur adds an extra element of plush comfort to a living space. Drape it over a velvet sofa or use as a bathroom rug.

Geometric Patterns

Patterns and textures can really elevate your glam decor. Big, repeating patterns with geometric shapes give traces of old hollywood glam.

40’s Glam Interior Design with Che Bella

Minneapolis Interior Designers are bustling this Holiday season to put together designs for rooms the they have been awarded for the 2014 Showcase House. We had the honor of designing the young twin girls’ bathroom as well as their playroom. The house was built in the 1930’s and the homeowners would like to have the house reflect a 1940’s glam feel without being too stuffy or turn into a time capsule. While our spaces will be more kid friendly – we wanted to get inspired by the 40’s glam style. The idea of Glamour can mean exploring daring color palettes, crystal chandeliers and fabulous objects.

We found a wonderful article full of detail on the Hollywood Regency style from Examiner that noted:
