Glamorous Interior Design Elements


When creating a glamorous interior in your home, keep things shiny by using plenty of gold, silver, and chrome objects. Glitter can also work if you’re careful, and mirrors can be a big help, making it appear like you have even more shiny things.

Soft and Fluffy

Another popular trend in glamorous interior design is to keep things soft and fluffy. Oversized pillows, tufted furniture, and bedding are huge, as are soft and thick faux fur carpets.


One more thing that many rich and glamorous people add to the interior of their homes is plenty of artwork. Placing artwork on your walls is fantastic because you can find or create something unique and personal. Art also retains its value better than many other objects.
