Decor Trend: Glitz and Glam It

Several years ago when I was purchasing for my retail store, I’d come across certain design trends that I didn’t think would last very long. Oh, how wrong I was when I thought that furniture and decorative accessories covered in metallic golds or mirrors would be short-lived. In my recent researches and reading, somebody the “experts” are saying that gilded gold and platinum will be used to add hints of glam throughout the home in the form of mirrored pieces and metallic fabrics in 2012. I don’t know about you but my life houseĀ could use a little more Glitz and Glam!

Now I’m borderline obsessed thinkingĀ about how I can add some touches of metallic to my home decor. Should I add a Glitz and Glam piece of furniture to my entry, master bedroom, living room or bath? Or should I cover one of my boring painted walls with a metallic patterned wallpaper? What would you do if you had all the money in the world?

    Sarah Holland - I’m looking for the console table on the left side of the Glitz and Glam Entry photo. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction? Your sources links aren’t working :)

    debbie - Hi Sarah-If you’re interested in the mirrored Parson’s console you can find it on the West Elm website. It’s one of my favorite ” Glitz and Glam” furniture pieces. You’ve got excellent taste! (P.S. Thanks for giving me the heads up on the bad links-they’ve been corrected.)
