Zen Better Living

Posted by Juan David Vanegas

Some peoples’ personalities are just meant to shine. If you fit that bill, there’s no reason why your interiors shouldn’t do the same. Glamorous designs, featuring plenty of glitz, sparkle and show-stopping shine, are simple to put together if you follow the right steps. Here’s how you can make it happen in a way that feels properly balanced, rather than over-the-top, ensuring all eyes end up exactly where you want them.

Go bold with colors and prints

Glamorous interiors are all about making a big statement, and there’s no better way to do that than with bold colors and loud patterns. Start by picking a color or pattern that speaks to you, and build the rest of your design around it.

Whichever look inspires you, remember the 60-30-10 rule (when using a three-color palette, decorate 60% of a room with the dominant color, 30% with the secondary color, and 10% with the remaining color). Typically, we’d recommend having a neutral shade as the dominant color, but feel free to switch it up. 

Play with shape

Shape is also a great way to infuse plenty of personality into a room. Instead of building your design around the same boxy, almost-modular furniture pieces everyone else uses, hunt down pieces with more character. Focus on selecting furniture that’s full of elegant curves and lots of angles to add visual interest.In addition to furniture, keep an eye open for other opportunities to disperse interesting shapes throughout your design. Light fixtures are a great way to do this, as are accessories and décor items. 

 

Introduce plenty of shine

When introducing glamour into a space, shine is an absolutely essential component for catching eyes and demanding attention. Make sure to include plenty of it in your design.

As for how to make it work, there are a few different tactics to choose from. The first is to introduce shine through your lighting elements.  Use metals, crystals, or both to create visual impact. If you go this route, we suggest making the lighting fixture your focal point. Consider hanging a bold fixture above a formal dining table, in an entryway, or above the bed.

Don’t forget balance

Balance is key for making your glamorous interior design a success. While eye-catching pieces are a must, including too many of them will have an opposite effect, causing the room to appear (and feel)overwhelming. It’s hard to focus when so many elements are vying for attention.

Glamorous décor items aren’t hard to find, but bringing them together in a way that makes sense requires a little more effort. On the one hand, you’ll want to include enough glitz to allow your personality to shine through. But, on the other, it’s important to keep you design from becoming too over-the top.
