The Challenge: Glamorous Living & Dining Room Design

Our client came to us with a specific vision in mind for her new open-concept living room. She wanted a glamorously elegant yet comfortable space where she could spend time with her family but also entertain guests. The house was brand new, featuring white walls and no distinctive character. Therefore, the chosen designer faced several challenges, having to:

  • Source new furniture with a glam vibe
  • Come up with a functional layout for the living room
  • Use the latest dining room ideas to create a bold, outspoken design
  • Incorporate the client’s favorite colors into the space

Glamorous Living Room Sets & Inspiration

The client provided an inspirational gallery that clearly communicated her glamorous living room ideas. Most images displayed plush, tufted furniture, golden accents, and glam decor pieces. Each room featured some eye-catching accessories, such as a soft area rug, notable art, patterned cushions, and statement lighting fixtures. Although a few images boasted a neutral scheme, jewel palettes dominated the overall display.

Considering all provided information, the Decorilla team proposed two suitable designers. Both had an affection for glam flair, bold color pops, and metallic finishes. In addition, each designer’s portfolio already featured stylish examples of similar projects. The client faced the pleasant but challenging task of picking just one moodboard to continue with. Finally, it was the concept from Casey H. that checked all boxes perfectly.

Casey’s vision of a beautiful, urban glam-inspired interior design was a cohesive elaboration of the root piece – a designed abstract wallpaper full of vibrant hues. Although the client’s idea was to place the wallpaper next to the stairs outside the living room, it was still a part of the same living area. Therefore the designer spotted and used the opportunity to marry different elements into one cheerful scheme.

The layout plays a significant role in the final outcome. As per the client’s request, the designer had to develop a functional configuration that could cater to the family of seven—plus their frequent guests. After considering several solutions, including two separate glamorous living room sets, they both agreed on one large, central conversational area. Consequently, the living room seating arrangement comprises two sofas, two armchairs, and a pair of decorative ottomans.

Although abundant, the gold and pink accents add a cheerful vibe and just the right amount of glamour without overpowering. By blending in a dash of yellow, the designer fulfilled yet another client’s wish: to incorporate all her favorite hues. The playful and glamorous living room furniture scheme also juxtaposes the substantial black fireplace, balancing out its solid weight. Meanwhile, layered textures provide a lot of visual depth, making the glam design anything but flat.

The glamorous dining room composition stuns with its overall warmth, understated elegance, and a few slightly unexpected elements. Clean furniture lines make an excellent canvas for abundant metallic finishes, allowing them to shine but not overwhelm. Velvet dining chairs in a show-stopping pink hue add a touch of whimsical luxury, and black cabinets ground the setting while enhancing visual interest.

Speaking of whimsy, the choice of pink wallpaper adds a welcome touch of stylish surprise, perfectly complementing the glitzy arrangement. The Art Deco-inspired pattern is both mischievous and sophisticated at the same time, making a chic statement without taking itself too seriously. Meanwhile, the graphic black-and-white rug pattern tones down the overall effect to establish an ideal balance.

The glamorous living room design encompasses a spacious open-concept area with a kitchen included. And since the rest of the room plays on the edge of being over the top, the kitchen makes a surprisingly calm visual statement. It’s black, serious, and entirely streamlined. Still, it plays well with all other features, acting as a decorative asset rather than a utilitarian background.
