Best Modern Themes to Decorate your Home

“If you want a statement piece, it should be an expensive one, otherwise the statement you are making is “I can’t afford anything better”. Tom Delavan, Designer.

Glamorous Modern Style Guidelines

 

The aim of the Modern Glamour Style in interior design is to draw out an elegant and eloquent statement in a big way. Mix dramatic furniture with pale neutral colors, using glamorous materials such as velvet or marble in rooms with simple furniture layouts, or place unexpected pieces of furniture alongside one another to create an interesting rhythm.

Some easy tips on how to achieve this style:

 

Modern Mix

Work some glamour magic by mixing and matching different types of furniture. Try a Pre-war architectural moldings reminiscent of Versailles but upstyled to reflect a super contemporary aesthetic.

Curtains

These can make or break an interior, these tall and wide décor accessories can create instant drama and an element of surprise by using glamorous and delicate white curtains, or compliment and add depth with colorful curtains. You can also use them to conceal everyday clutter like wardrobes or office papers.

Create Contrast

Contrast rough with smooth, black with white, bold patterns with minimal floors and walls, colorful glass with neutral surfaces and the old with the new to create an interesting and impulsive visual tension.

Chic Walls

Wallpaper always adds glamour and visual interest to a space. Tiles are also an excellent way of adding color and texture to the interior. Keep it confined to the wall that creates the most impact. Bold patterns or motifs in muted color provides a smart backdrop.

Lighting Tricks

Mid-century modern floor and wall lamps, 19th century chandeliers and cool contemporary Italian globe lights all add to the glamour story. Don’t be shy about including a big light in every room for instant impact.
