As they say, the first impression is the last impression. Let’s make sure anyone who sets foot in your little luxurious apartment is bowled over at the first sight. Invest in your entryway by adding eye catchy vases with beautiful flowers. Make it look inviting with a tall lamp that emits warm light. A dark wooden background table lends an exciting look to the overall entrance scene.
You can also try this look if you want to add a Zen-like atmosphere to the entry passage. A serene looking sculpture along with a little green will greet anyone with a calm experience and make their day!
2. Get Glam Into Your Living Area:
Time to change the old sofa layers and get all glamorous with some lush velvet! Velvet fabric adds richness to your sofa like no other and transforms an otherwise dull looking living room to something splendid. Try dark colours like royal blue, purple or even subtle ones like grey, beige work just great. Teaming it up with some vibrant cushions will be the cherry on top of the cake!
3. Get Glam To Your Home With A Bar:

Lights play an important role when you are looking to add glamour to any room. Depending on the space available, you can opt for a grand chandelier or install small lamps against a rustic wall as shown below. Play with different lighting fixtures and styles and watch the area come alive.
Place decorative pieces inside hollow shelves with lights flooding over them. The result will be a sophisticated wall of art created just by adding the golden glow!
6. Use Shelves That Look Appealing:
Organise your Books and everything fancy in a double ladder bookshelf. It not only utilises the extra space in a room beautifully but also solves the functional problem of putting all the random and pretty little things together in an orderly fashion.
7. How To Use Pillows To Give A Glam Look:
Who would have thought that placing your pillows in a certain manner could exude glamour? Collect throw pillows of various colours and textures. They are easily available off the internet or retail stores at affordable prices. Keep an eye out for bargain fleas happening near you as you can pick them up at half the usual rates.
The empty corner of your bedroom can be filled up with a small sized couch. It acts like a cosy getaway from the mundane bed that you sleep in. Funky prints like black and white stripes combined with glitter cushions will give a glam look to your room. Let your creative side work and don’t hesitate to mix and match different pillow designs.

What do we miss the most about our hotel when back from a vacation? Not the bed (well, that too), but the oh-so-wonderful and lavish bathrooms! It is one place where people like to retire for a few moments to clear their heads and escape from this maddening world. Neatly stacked towels, toilet paper and a small wicker basket for storage give the bathroom an elegant feel. Add a little indoor plant to provide a natural look.
Use an attractive mirror and make it the focal point of the bathroom. Install lights right over it for a warm glow. Choose a modern design for the washbasin. Sometimes minimalistic décor lend a very sophisticated aura to traditional Bathrooms. You can use rugs with interesting messages to add an element of fun to the decor.
