Transitional glam living room - Luxe

Leather, velvet, and music! Recent Decorilla clients wanted their new great room to resemble a vintage high-end piano bar. Not to mention, the space needed to feel like a musicians’ cocktail lounge but be casual enough for a family. Tricky? Not when Decorilla’s vetted team of professionals is involved. See cozy glam come to life in the transitional glam living room reveal below! 

The Challenge: Grand Piano Living Room Layout

A blank canvas can be a good start, but it becomes complicated when a grand piano comes into the picture. On the upside, the clients were open to an eclectic take on transitional glam design for their living room. So, to create the perfect transitional interior design, designers had to:

  • Ensure the grand piano fits comfortably in the living room layout
  • Emulate a high-end bourbon lounge look and feel
  • Design a formal living room with glam décor to complement the piano
  • Incorporate the lightness of coastal design as the home is close to the beach

The clients not only had glam interior design ideas, but they also loved the look of vintage bars and decadent music cafes. The beauty and casual air of a rock lounge is something that had to feature in the final design. Indulgent touches, like marble, velvet, and striking lights, also topped their wish list.

Plus, they adored any living room with a grand piano. This addition would surely turn their space into an unforgettable transitional glam living room.

After setting their brief and style preferences, the clients received concepts from two Decorilla designers. It was a tough choice – both proposals ticked all the boxes. But in the end, it was the transitional glam living room by Rachel H. the clients wanted. With Rachel’s design, they would have a bold and bewitching great room, without a doubt!

Rachel chose a dark and deep color scheme of navy, vibrant indigo, rich brown, and gray. These shades would complement the sizable grand piano while also helping the visual side of the living room layout. Rachel also suggests a less-is-more approach with furniture to make key items stand out more. Plus, it’ll allow space for the piano as well as the select glam décor.

The grand piano sits in front of the window. It’s striking, bold, and dark. But, thanks to the spacious living room layout, the piano enhances the room without encroaching on anything else. The triple-tier windows allow ample natural light to flood in, perfect for the moody color scheme. In addition, pinched floor-to-ceiling curtains add even more height to the voluminous space. These silky drapes also bring an elegant finishing touch to the soft greige walls. 

With so much sunlight flooding in, the room benefits from dark wood floors and a blue feature wall. Besides, the off-white curtains blend with the light wall when closed – ideal for bouncing light into the room in the evening. The light-colored silvery rug and paneled fireplace also ensure the space has enough to contrast with darker features. As a result, the living room is in balance with its most predominant feature, the grand piano. 

Glam Décor & Aesthetic Details

The formal living room has symmetric and asymmetric features. This is a good choice when working with such a big and odd-shaped object as a grand piano. The geometric coffee table and pendant fit the eclectic layout, but the perfection of the feature wall brings formality.

That said, the accents are a blend of styles. Traditional paneling adds structure while dark walls make a sound canvas for the mirrors and unique cabinets. Together with glam décor accents, the space is cohesive and deeply visually satisfying. 

Before the Transitional Glam Living Room Makeover

In need of inspiration – before the transformation


Before, the formal living room was an empty space apart from the grand piano and some storage. The color scheme didn’t do much for the space and the extended feature wall above the fireplace towered instead of enhancing the room. Fortunately, with the insights from a professional interior designer, the interior is an absolute treat.
