Is your home feeling a bit drab and uninspiring? Then why not glam it up? Whether you decide to add just a few subtle details or to go for a complete redesign, injecting some vintage glamour into a space will help transform it into something truly special.
What better area of the home to indulge your love of luxury and glamour than the bathroom? You may not have a glamorous lifestyle, but you’ll feel like you do when relaxing in this room. The richness of the gold, along with the vintage-style accessories and fittings are all you’ll need to give your bathroom the glam vibe it deserves.
Metallics, particularly gold and silver, are an ideal way to introduce a touch of glamour to a space. They already have that sumptuous feel to them, so are a good shortcut option to achieving that glamorous look in your home.
Deep, rich colours lend themselves perfectly to the vintage glamour design style, and none more so than black. The black vintage-style furniture in the example above – paired against the white – gives the room a sense of sophistication and grandeur.
This bedroom also makes good use of light and dark palettes. The dramatic combination of colours, along with the vintage decor, creates a romantic space – somewhere you’ll feel like a classic Hollywood star waking up in.
Nothing says glamour quite like an old-fashioned chandelier. For it to make the right impact, though, it’s best reserved for spacious rooms or entry halls with high ceilings. Otherwise you’ll just make a room appear crowded.
With careful planning, the vintage glamour design style can be successfully achieved in any room within the home, no matter its size or dimensions. If you’re lucky enough to have a large room to work with, though, creating a glamorous space is made all the easier, allowing you to add all those features that help to give it that epic quality.
Of course, that’s not to say that vintage glamour can’t work in a smaller space, you’ve just got to do everything on a slightly smaller scale. A few carefully chosen bits and pieces should be enough to get the look right.
You can instantly transform any room from the ordinary to the opulent by hanging some luxury wallpaper. Choose ornate florals or damasks, and pair with plush velvety furniture to complete the glamorous feel of the space.
Another way to quickly and easily glam up a space is with mirrors. It could be a single large vintage-style mirror or lots of little ones, it doesn’t matter all that much – what is important is that they take command of the room from a decor perspective.
