You’re most likely to find metallic silver home decor in a glam space. There may be pops of metallic silver in a modern, contemporary, or industrial design, but metallics are a signature of glam style. Metallic decor adds the luxury feel that glam style is known for. Here are some of the other distinctions of glam style:
➤ Color Palette: Glam designs begin with a neutral color palette, whether that be creamy neutrals or stark black and white. In terms of accent colors, glam designs can embrace moody, saturated jewel tones or light pastels.
➤ Materials: Glam style is all about reflective materials, like metal, glass, and mirrors. You can even incorporate glitter or sparkly details to create an over-the-top feel in a fun and elegant way. Silver decor is perfect for a glam space.
➤ Texture: Glam style is about soft and luxurious textiles. Think silk, faux fur, and velvet. Upholstered furniture, like plush dining room chairs or an upholstered headboard, is also indicative of glam style.
➤ Lines and Shapes: Geometric lines bring in a more art deco or modern feel while curved lines emphasize softness and femininity. Both are fair game in glam style.
➤ Statement Pieces: Glam style isn’t just about luxury, it’s also about creating wow moments that elevate your space. One classic example is incorporating a crystal chandelier into your space–and not just in the dining room. In a glam design, a chandelier might be incorporated into a living room or bedroom.
When you’re planning out a glam design for your home, you can choose silver furniture, or choose neutral furniture and opt for silver decorations artfully arranged throughout your room. A shimmery silver server can be a show-stopping piece in your dining room. In another room, you might opt for more subtle accessories like a mirror, a piece of silver wall art, or other mirrored accessories to create a glam feel in the room as a whole. Black and silver furniture pair well together for a glam or modern glam design. Let’s look at specific spaces in your home and discuss how you can incorporate metallic silver in each space.
Silver Wall Decor
Silver metal wall decor is one of the simplest ways to incorporate glam style into any room. Whether it’s a hallway, entryway, office, or even kitchen, wall decor is such an easy way to bring metallic silver into your design. Silver mirrors, frames, clocks, and more sculptural art pieces are all excellent possibilities. You could also choose a lamp with a metallic base.
Silver Kitchen Decorations
Silver naturally makes its way into your kitchen through stainless steel appliances, pots and pans, and the contents of your knife block. Consider hanging your best pots and pans up as decorations in your kitchen rather than stowing them away in a cabinet. A metallic silver fruit bowl or a stainless steel-topped island are other ideas for bringing a glam moment to your kitchen. You can replace your drawer and cabinet handles with metallic ones or even crystal knobs that reflect light throughout the room.
Silver Bedroom Decorations
In the bedroom, you can incorporate silver decorations in a number of ways. Of course, you can incorporate silver wall decor. You can also choose furniture pieces that feature sparkling or metallic accents. An upholstered headboard, bench, or accent chair could feature metallic nailhead trim. A silver or white nightstand would be an excellent option. There are so many ways to incorporate glamorous silver bedroom decor that feels luxurious and special to you. Glam bedrooms are all about creating a chic retreat that reflects your personality.

What colors go with metallics?
There is no strict rule here. Silver is a cool tone while gold is a warm tone, so you can pair silver with cooler tones, but there is also a lovely contrast when you pair a cool color like navy with the warmth of gold. Similarly, glam style gives you plenty of creative license with color. For accent colors, you can choose from bold colors or soft pastels.
What is modern glam style?
Modern glam style incorporates all the signature elements of glam style, but incorporates the minimalism, sleek lines, and neutral palette of modern style. It is a sophisticated blend of the two styles.
Can you mix gold and silver in home decor?
Yes! This is an ongoing debate, but ultimately, it’s up to your own personal preferences. To dabble in mixing metals, try mixing silver metals like brushed nickel with chrome and mirrored surfaces. Mixing metals can actually give your space more depth and interest.
