10 Ways to Glam Up Your Living Space

Glam1

Who doesn’t want a bit more glamour in their life? Whether you crave a little or a lot, there are plenty of ways to up the elegance and drama of your living space, without breaking the bank. Read on for 10 tips to glam up your home, from small details to grand gestures.

1. Get something in Lucite. Lucite lets the light shine through, so it’s especially good in small spaces. Try a Lucite coffee table, side table, or console to update your space.

2. Indulge in super soft velvet. If you are in the market for a new piece of furniture, or even new throw pillows, why not make it velvet? This material just begs to be snuggled into.

3. Go classical with a bust. A small bust on the mantle or sideboard is a bold statement. Have a little fun with it by “dressing” it up for holidays with a jaunty hat or big necklace.

4. Bring in x-benches. X-benches are a decorator favorite with good reason. They are sleek, chic, and fit in just about anywhere. Try a pair in front of the fireplace, at the foot of the bed, or tucked beneath a console table.

5. Add contrast piping and trim. Everything looks chicer with contrast color piping. Choose a bright hue for a pop of fun, or keep it classic with black piping on white. Grosgrain ribbon trim is a budget-friendly way to personalize plain curtains or a lampshade. No need to sew, just hot glue it!

6. Roll out a bold print rug. Bold, graphic print area rugs, especially with a chain, lattice, hex, or Greek key print, are a fabulous way to add tons of color and pattern to your space. And of course, animal print and ikat are always welcome in a glamorous home, too!

7. Hang a salon-style art wall. Art looks at its most glamorous when hung in a salon-style grouping. For a chic effect, stick with a restrained palette of black, white, cream, and gold.

Glam5

8. Put something on a pedestal. The bigger, the better! Use a plant stand, column, or other pedestal to elevate a giant vase, urn, planter, or sculpture, for a dramatic effect.

Glam6

9. Cover a console with a custom skirt. This is such a chic look, and (bonus!) hides tons of stuff underneath.

10. When in doubt, add a tray. Trays are one of the most useful items to have in your styling toolkit. Start a collection of Lucite, patterned, and plain white trays of various shapes and sizes. Use them to corral mail and keys by the door, frame a group of books and flowers on the coffee table, or even stand in as a bar tray.

Now it’s your turn! Tell us: How do you inject a bit of glamour into your home? Share your favorite tip in the Comments.
