We’re ready for our close up
When the weather gets colder it presents the perfect opportunity to take some time and create a warm, inviting space within your home. It needs to feel homely for when you are cosying up with the family, but also needs to be suitable for entertaining guests and festive well-wishers. To create this atmosphere, style your home with old Hollywood glamour in mind, this gorgeous look is relatively easy to recreate, yet can still achieve that va-va-voom, darlings.
The trick to creating the luxe look of the silver screen is layering, where more is definitely more. Dressing leather sofas such as The Fifty Nine with alluring faux furs and beaded cushions almost begs you to drape yourself across them. Mixing darker faux furs with animal prints brings a moody richness to your living space and will present a polished looking seating area.
The sheen and shimmer of metallics also add a sense of lustre to your room. Gold lamps with neutral lampshades inspire thoughts of elegance, while placing metallic objects on shelving draws the eye around the room. A top tip with shelves is to follow a minimalist feel, keeping it simple with one or two objects per section to avoid overcrowding.
If you have dark toned upholstery fabric and you’re worried about the room appearing too menacing, add some mirrors. Hanging art deco style mirrors will play with the natural light and brighten the room, while also adding the graphical touches associated with the time.
Put your home in the spotlight this winter by creating a living space filled with the extravagance and luxury of old Hollywood glamour. We’ve even put some tips together with our Glamorous Pinterest board.
