Glamour Friday: Chic Living Room

Glamour Fridays are back!!!  I don’t know about you, but I certainly missed researching and writing these posts about glamorous rooms.  Because here on the Glam Blog – it is all about adding glamour into your home!!

This living room is a GLAM SLAM for so many reasons:


  • Gorgeous blue tufted sofa with gold accent via the cushions
  • The zebra rug — hello, everyone needs some zebra or animal print in their home!
  • Black painted fireplace — how dramatic is that?  Love, love, love it!!
  • Grey painted walls that act as the perfect neutral background for all the exciting furniture and accessories
  • Gorgeous brass lamps with black lampshades
  • Stunning silk drapery framing the large windows
  • The fantastic tub chairs wrapped in that beautiful chinoiserie fabric
  • And last, the lovely glass coffee table.

What do you think?  GLAM SLAM or total SHAM?  Have a great weekend!!

Glamorously yours,

Decorate As You Dress — My Coral Coach Purse!!

Happy Monday!!  Hope you all had a super weekend now that Spring weather has finally arrived.  Today I’m launching a new feature on The Glam Blog…..it’s called “Decorate As You Dress.”

It’s really quite simple….every Monday I will feature an article of clothing or accessory that I own and then talk about how I would decorate a room inspired by it’s colour, shape or texture.  And voila…you have ‘Decorate as You Dress!!”

The first “Decorate as You Dress” post is all about my brand new Coral Coach purse I purchased over March break.


Isn’t it a gorgeous, fresh colour…..it’s so punchy and look how fabulous it looks with leopard print.  Coral/orange and anything leopard print is a definite GLAM SLAM!!


And look how glorious it looks matched with a Victoria Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck for Kartell.

Now this is how I would decorate a room  based on my coral Coach purse!!

If you love coral, why not go for slip-covered comfy chairs and drapery in a coral & white print offset by turquoise blue.  Now that’s a fantastic colour combination!!

Here`s the same colour combination n a room designed by Tobi Fairley.  Love the hits of coral in the ottoman and sofa cushions…and of course, we can`t forget about the orange book on the end table!!

One of the quickest ways to update your home for spring is to add a jolt of colour, like this coral bedding to this bedroom.

I adore this office with its orange arabesque rug, glass-top desk, and natural linen roman shades with orange ribbon trim.  So very chic.  And what about the living room below.  Greys and corals are magnificent together.  The artwork and area rug are both absolutely beautiful and give this room so much personality.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my first “Decorate As You Dress“ post…and I hope my coral coach purse has inspired you to add some lovely coral accents into your home this spring!!

Now if you want to join in on the fun, then you too can be featured in a Decorate as you Dress weekly post.  Just send me a photo of something you love in your closet and (if you are brave)pictures of similar inspired decor OR I will find the decor inspiration for you and blog about it and you in the upcoming weeks.
