When it comes to your own home, there are many things you can do and items you can add to make it feel like a celebrity’s. The modern glam interior design style is incredibly popular today as it emits a sophisticated and luxurious feel without breaking the bank.
Imagine walking into your living room and feeling like you’re in a fancy penthouse suite. Or hosting a dinner party in your dining room that could rival any Hollywood event. We’re here to give you tips & tricks to glam-ify your home.
So, what exactly is modern glam?
Modern glam is all about adding some sparkle and shine to your home, but in a chic, sophisticated and modern way. It’s essentially the more tame baby of Hollywood Regency, a style fashionable during the golden age of film-making in the 1920-1950s. Hollywood Regency is known for its statement-making pieces and has a big emphasis on glamour, luxury, entertainment and a cinematic flair. Modern glam, on the other-hand, isn’t as old-fashioned, bold and dramatic, but leans more into simplicity. It includes elements of Hollywood Regency, but much more understated and present-day.
Let’s get into what the specific elements of modern glam are and how you can use them.
Metallics, metallics everywhere
Metallics are a key element of modern glam, and if you use them well in your home, it can bring your space to the next level of luxury. But remember, you don’t want to go overboard or you’ll fall into a Hollywood Regency style.
Instead of an all-gold wall, opt for tasteful metallic accents. Think a gold or brass piece of furniture, a mirror or piece of artwork with a metallic frame, a brass lamp, or a throw pillow with a metallic pattern. Start with one metallic piece and gradually add a few more to build up the glamorous vibe. With metallics, you can achieve that high-end look without being maximalist about it.
If ever there was a match made in interior design heaven, it would be modern glam and tufted furniture. Tufted furniture is classic while also adding a glamorous and sophisticated feel. A tufted couch as the centerpiece of a room will make an elegant statement, but if that’s not in the budget, a tufted ottoman or bench can also add that touch of pizzazz. The best part is that tufted furniture is so popular, there are plenty of affordable options available. Keep searching until you find the perfect striking piece.
Consider Your Color Schemes
When it comes to modern glam, ambiance is more important than using a specific color scheme. That being said, many modern glam spaces feature a combination of metallics, neutrals and one or more accent colors. Black and white is also a popular color scheme. The colors you use in your modern glam space are ultimately up to you, and they should coordinate well with the rest of your home.

Mirrors Are Key
Mirrors are an essential element in achieving a modern glam look in your home. Not only do they add a touch of glamour, but they also have the power to make a room feel bigger. Incorporate a glitzy mirror in your foyer, or a dramatic one in the bedroom for an opulent feel.
With modern glam, you can play with the balance of modern and vintage elements, choosing a sleek and modern mirror or a more classic and ornate one. For an extra touch of luxury, consider using mirrored furniture, like a mirrored nightstand, desk or coffee table. These pieces are both timeless and contemporary, making them the perfect addition to any modern glam space.
Use Classic AND Modern Accessories
Incorporating both classic and modern elements is key when it comes to achieving a modern glam look in your home. Remember, modern glam takes the luxurious Hollywood Regency design style and adds a present-day twist, so it’s important to balance the two.
To bring in a modern touch, you can use faux fur, sleek lighting and animal prints. To add a touch of classic Hollywood glamour, opt for vintage rugs, oversized dramatic lighting and brass table decorations. Pairing simple, clean nightstands with a statement tufted headboard, for example, will create the perfect balance of classic and modern elements.
