5 Glam Essentials



Give your home a luxurious update with the top 5 glam essentials. Farah Merhi, design expert and stylist whose forte is glam decor. The secret to a glamorous and sophisticated look is simple. Let her show you the essentials to going glam. First, start with a minimalist color palette and a clean room. Let’s just say that clutter is anything but glam. Let’s begin with jewel tones. These bright hues pack a punch to a sleek white color palette. To avoid overcrowding a room with too many patterns or colors, stick to a serene combination of saturated jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, or deep plum in textiles. Don’t you love the nail head trim on the ottoman? Rich textures like faux fur, velvet, and silk are indulgent yet comfortable and add a layer of panache. Use a variety of fabric textures in pillows and furniture to add elegance without overwhelming the room. Tufting and nail head trim balance the delicate velvet of a gorgeous ottoman. Lucite is classically glam and has minimal footprint, which makes any space appear bigger. We love the ornate details of this Lucite chair, it’s the perfect marriage of vintage and modern in perfect glam harmony. Mirrors also give the illusion of more space, but let’s think beyond the wall. This chic vanity is unapologetically feminine making it the ultimate statement piece for a bedroom or office. Extra-long curtains will properly frame a space, making the ceiling seem taller and the room seem airier. Always install curtain rods just a few inches below the ceiling. You can fake the size of the window by using extra-long curtain rods that are wider than the window frame. The curtains should kiss the floor or slightly puddle, depending on your taste. Short curtains won’t do the room any favors. Be sure to measure from above the window frame to the floor when selecting new curtains. These drapes are slightly sheer with a natural texture and slide right onto the curtain rod. Get your glam on and happy shopping!
