Suggested textures and textiles for adding glamour and elegance include:

  • mirrors and mirrored furniture
  • gold, silver and other metallics
  • glass and lucite
  • Macassar ebony furniture
  • chandeliers,┬álanterns, lamps, and pot lighting on dimmer switches
  • panelling, wainscotting, cornices
  • marble and onyx
  • symmetry
  • plush fabrics such as silk and velvet for furniture fabric, rugs and cushions
  • tufted furniture, and piping
  • plenty of coffee tables next to seating to enable easy placement of guest’s cocktail glasses
  • lusciously-textured drapes
  • soft shades such as whites, greys and beige keep things sophisticated
  • wallpaper and grasscloth
  • Chinoiserie textures, furniture and accessories
  • any textile with a glossy finish
  • think about Art Deco and Hollywood Regency styles
  • fresh flowers such as peonies and roses (ideally just one colour and one type at a time).

 

 

 

Not-really-glam: Decorating ideas to avoid in a glamorous space

  • too many bright colours (many have one but use it sparingly) – absolutely no fluoro unless you are Jonathan Adler!
  • too many vibrant prints – keep them for more casual, fun rooms
  • clutter: elegance means refinement
  • cheap materials and accessories: glam items need to reflect luxury
  • bad window coverings – get rid of those nasty plastic venetian blinds
  • unframed prints – have paintings and prints framed in a regal gold or silver frame.
