4 ways to add a touch of glamour

If you’re inspired by all things vintage, listen up!

1. Glam up your walls with Hollywood film posters and prints. For instance, in our June 2019 issue, Ashley Morris bought hers from Desenio and her framed Chanel No 19 print in the lounge was from an antiques and collectors fair at Alexandra Palace. Ashley chose Versace’s Large Greek Key wallpaper in Antique Gold, £58 per roll from I Love Wallpaper. 

2. French-style furniture always looks glam. Ashley created a boudoir feel to her bedroom Expert advice with two luxe buys; the Versailles gold gilt dressing table and her Charcoal rattan bed. Remember to pair investment pieces with more affordable items from second-hand shops or eBay. 

3. Crisp, sleek and shiny surfaces and mirrors, sparkly chandelier pendants, copper, silver or gold frames will add sparkle to any space. Blend vintage and antiques with modern high street furniture pieces.

4. Mix and match different textures for a luxurious feel using sheepskin throws, faux fur, lace, and embroidered or soft velvet cushions. The key to this look is to slowly layer as you go.
