Elegance, sophistication, femininity, softness… Many adjectives can qualify Modern Glam interiors. What we like in this decorative style is precisely the feminine part, both soft and strong. A feminine that is not reduced to stereotypes, to superficiality. No, it is quite the opposite. A taste for details, a desire to create a comforting and pleasant atmosphere every day. And therefore, the lights have a special place in this decorative style. In this article, we will, therefore, take a closer look at them, hoping to give you ideas for your interior!
THE PLACE OF LIGHTING IN MODERN GLAM STYLE INTERIORS
ATTENTION TO DETAILS RIGHT DOWN TO THE FINISHING TOUCHES
What is interesting with the elegant Modern Glam style is that the lights take on another dimension in your decorating project. Usually, the lights finalize your decor, it’s just a little extra touch to your atmosphere. Here, the lights are an integral part of your decor. It is a decorative element in the same way as your wall decoration or your textile decoration. We will, therefore, choose them carefully, taking into account the details, giving it meaning.
A TOUCH OF GOLD IN THE DECOR WITHOUT DOING TOO MUCH
Gold is not the only color found in elegant and refined lighting. But this color is very representative of the Modern Glam atmosphere. The golden light can be a ceiling light, a series of wall lights, a floor lamp, a table lamp … And what is all the more interesting is that it makes a reminder of colors. Gold can be found in other details of the decoration such as the base of the coffee table, the legs of the chairs too. Higher up, at eye level, we will see gold in the wall decoration thanks to the framing of a mirror or frames.
Gold is a rather singular color in decoration. It is a strong color. If you put too much, you risk transforming your room into a Scrooge style replica of a safe. This is not the goal here. We are talking about femininity, sensitivity. We go there gently. A touch of elegance symbolized by gold.
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TABLE LAMP
The table lamp is above all decoration. It is one of the secondary lights that will help create a soft and warm atmosphere when it is turned on. When off, the table lamp is also decorative. She dresses the furniture on which it is placed, the space of the room where it is located. We will therefore carefully choose where to place the lamp.
The table lamp is also interesting as a duet to create a form of symmetry on a low piece of furniture, like a console or a sideboard. Arranged on each side of the piece of furniture, it creates a frame that can be filled as desired, with flowers, dried flowers for a slightly more bohemian effect, plants for a contemporary effect or why not frame to ask, more classic.
MODERN GLAM – A CERTAIN IMAGE OF ELEGANCE ALSO IN THE LUMINAIRES
LARGE FORMAT LUMINAIRES, THE CLASSIC BROUGHT UP TO DATE
The large-format can take different forms. We will have the vertical format with the suspension which will descend relatively low in the volume of your room. It’s interesting when you have a high ceiling, for example. In a more “classic” interior, the pendant lamp is easily found above the dining table. In terms of design, we have the chandelier with pendants, not that of our grandmother, a model inspired by it, with more details, more fleshed out.
We will also have large format lights that will dress the space not in height but horizontally. They will go lower. Often made up of several arms, they allow very good light distribution throughout the room. We also have in the design a reminder of a past but not so long-gone era. We are leaving the classic tassel for a more seventies period, once again brought up to date.
Now that we have seen the main characteristics of these feminine lights, we offer you a shopping selection that may help you to perfect your atmosphere.
