Glam is an interior design style that’s ornate and extravagant, striking the perfect balance between excess and elegance. Using elaborate detailing, high contrast, and luxurious materials, glam style is for those who love a more-is-more approach with a sense of sophistication and plenty of shimmer.
While the glam aesthetic is instantly recognizable, knowing where to start in a design can be overwhelming. Follow along for some tips and tricks on how you can bring glam interior design into your home with ease.
Introduce Bold Shapes & Patterns
Is your space falling a bit flat? Introduce pieces with bold shapes and patterns—and a dimensional space will quickly start taking shape. A glam design features sharp lines with high contrast, and while geometric motifs are always welcome in glam spaces, don’t be afraid to experiment with other bold options.
Featuring a pyramid-shaped surface detailing, our Holmesdale Vanity combines a bold pattern with dimensional texture to create visual intrigue that fits in seamlessly with other iconic patterns.
Exude Opulence With Rich Tones
There is no one set color scheme to follow for a glam space, but one tone you’ll always find is gold. Emitting a sense of luxury and decadence, gilded hues can easily be incorporated through your metallic fixtures. As shown in our Lexia Collection, gold finishes bring a lavish warmth to any space.
Other base colors are commonly white, black, or gray, while accent colors commonly lean towards muted pastels for a lighter, fresher look or rich jewel tones for a moodier vibe.
Incorporate Luxe Materials
In deciding what materials to use in your glam space, it’s all about creating a high-end look. As an excellent starting point, incorporate pieces constructed of marble. From sinks, as shown in our Shea Curved Marble Vessel Sink, to countertops to cabinet hardware like our Jarek Square Cabinet Knob, this material immediately elevates a space.
Other materials such as glass, Lucite, crystal, and polished metals have a similar effect. Contrast these with plenty of plush accents from your upholstery to textiles to complete the full glam experience.
Reflect Your Style With Mirrors
An instant way to add opulence to a space is with reflective surfaces, and what better way to achieve this than with mirrors? Not only do they offer a glam-worthy shine, but they create the illusion of more space and are easy to swap out if you’re hesitant on something more permanent.
The ideal glam mirror should be composed of an interesting shape such as our Tenaya Hexagonal Decorative Vanity Mirror, or feature an intricate frame like our Sethfield Decorative Vanity Mirror. To take this reflective accent a step further, consider LED mirrors, which illuminate the mirror with a halo-like glow.
The Details Are Everything
From your main fixtures and furnishings to the smallest accents, a glam space comes together with the details. Remember, you’re looking to strike a balance between flashy and refined.
To infuse glam qualities in your foundational pieces, see how our Waller Cast Iron Clawfoot Tub delivers wow factor with its timeless silhouette mixed with striking gilded feet. In adding a quick, easy touch of glam to a room, cabinet hardware makes a big impact; find those that exude a luxe look as seen in our Clanora Acrylic Cabinet Pull.
No glam kitchen is complete without open shelving. Show off glitzy glassware and gleaming treasures with open shelves, using stylish shelf brackets for a final hint of flair. If you have the additional space, install an extravagant wet bar for a full-on glam moment.
For the perfect tub setup in your glam bathroom, pair a statement tub with a playful yet elegant telephone faucet. To achieve an opulent look that doesn’t feel cluttered, use luxe functional pieces as the glam bathroom décor itself.
Living Room & Bedroom
For glam living room and glam bedroom ideas, it starts with sleek, shiny door sets. These set a glam-worthy tone for what’s to come, though be sure to pay attention to other adjacent doors like closets and ensuites, too. Consider trading a traditional gallery wall for a mini mirror gallery wall to complete a modern glam living room or bedroom.
Also referred to as Hollywood Regency, Hollywood glam is the most classic form of glam. It’s very bold and metropolitan, featuring Art Deco patterns that are sleek, symmetrical, and geometric—reminiscent of the golden years of the film industry.
While glam is often associated with light colors and sparkle, it can also be dark and moody. Introducing black as a key color, glam goth combines deep tones with an excess of glam style home décor for a space teeming with depth—especially when paired with richly toned metal accents.
Modern glam is a popular trend that brings a sense of modernity to the glam design style. Execute the look by seeking out more minimalist silhouettes and going lighter on the glam décor, as this style leans less on the “excess” aspect of traditional glam and more on a luxe, polished look.
