Glam interiors idea 1: The statement sofa
The focal point of any glam living room is of course the glam sofa. Modern glam style gives you plenty of scope in terms of shape and design – anything from square-armed contemporary to high-backed traditional can work beautifully – but your choice of upholstery is critical. At this point, we have just two words for you: pale, and velvety. Shades of silver, dove grey, pewter and even white in soft, luxurious fabrics are perfect for this look, instantly elevating your décor to dizzying heights of glam style.
But if white upholstery simply isn’t compatible with your lifestyle, you have our permission to opt for warmer neutrals or even bold jewel tones, emphasising the glam décor feel with classic details like Chesterfield buttoning, beautifully curved or scrolling arms, and striking details like metallic studding and metal legs.

Glam interiors idea 2: Light-reflecting surfaces
There’s nothing ostentatious about the new glam room style. Colours are pure, materials are high-end, and the details are understated. Let the beauty of this trend shine though with gorgeous storage pieces and unique side tables, coffee tables and console tables made of light-reflecting glass and marble. Keep lines simple and unfussy – geometric shapes work particularly well – and try to incorporate soft-toned metals with burnished brass and soft gold coloured finishes.

Glam interiors idea 5: Sleek Italian style
Glam interior style knows no boundaries. You may opt for a distinctively British approach – a quintessentially English sofa, a traditional chandelier – or go for something that’s more overtly European like a luxuriously sleek Italian sideboard or dining set. We’re very on board with this approach as Italian dining furniture, by brands like ALF, perfectly captures the modern glamour look – subtle in tone, understated by design and beautifully crafted.

Glam interiors idea 6: Rustic glam dining
Glam home decor with an industrial edge? If you find yourself caught between two stylish trends, never fear. Great interior design has the capacity to solve all kinds of style problems, and we've discovered that there’s nothing mutually exclusive about glam decor and industrial style as, usefully, both encompass creative combinations of glass, metal and wood. Just be sure that you opt for rather more finished surfaces – expanses of glass rather than occasional accents, smooth rather than weathered metal, and polished rather than antiqued wood.
