Ten Ways to Add Instant Glamour to Your Home

Guest Editor
  1. Flowers: Flowers are the simplest way to bring glamour into your home. It’s instant gratification!

  2. Plants: Orchid plants are also a great way to bring long lasting life and color into a space.

  3. Centerpieces: Clustering bud vases in varying shapes and sizes filled with single blossoms is effortless and makes a beautiful centerpiece for your table, no matter what the shape of it is.

  4. Candlelight: Whether it’s your favorite scented candle, a grouping of votives, or beeswax pillars, candlelight enhances any environment.

  5. Mirrors: Mirrors are not only an amazing way to add glamour to a room, but they’re decorative and make most spaces look larger.

  6. Lighting: The perfect side lamp or overhead light fixture makes a room. Dimmers are a must!

  7. Vignettes: When you’re placing decorative pieces in your home, arrange them together in groupings. This may consist of a few art-coffee table books and vase filled with blossoms on a tray that is then placed on a coffee table or ottoman.

  8. Trays: Use a White Dahlia Serving Tray to create the foundation for a centerpiece. I designed the Floral Art tray as a modern floral inspired piece that adds a pop of color without having to buy fresh flowers. These can look incredibly chic with nothing but votive candles.

  9. Mercury glass: Decorative mercury glass, whether a vase, light fixture, or bowl, adds elegant sparkle to your home.

  10. Pillows: Decorative throw pillows are the perfect way to dress up a sofa, chair, or bed.
