Inspirational Interiors for First Apartments: Glamour Chic in Pink and Gold

 If you are familiar with my posts, then you know I’m a self-professed color and decorating junkie. My latest fix? Pink and gold decorated living rooms. If I could, I would paint everything in my home gold and add gold accents to every room, but even I know that’s a little overboard. Instead, I decided to share the love (and control myself) with a glamor chic inspiration board using my current color palette obsession. With this inspiration board I went with a living room setting because I think the color palette works nicely in this style room. So without delay, scroll down to see the inspirational interior, details behind the look, and information on where to buy your most loved pieces!

For this inspiration interior, I wanted to create a look that was glamorous, but chic and clean. So, of course, my beloved gold was a perfect color pick to tie the two themes together. As you will see, the look features a few key accents in gold to create cohesion throughout and to form a theme of sorts. Picking great accent pieces in gold is a nice way to use the color in a room without it becoming excessive. That way, those gold pieces stand out for their color and their nice detailing rather than all blending together simply because of their color. For my look, I chose a bold gold mirror, a modern side table, and a fun elephant statue. These pieces stand on their own, but aren’t overpowering.

With the pink tones, I decided to keep it simple and go for a nice pop of pink with a great striped accent pillow and a more subdued pink accent chair. Similarly to gold, pink is a bold color, so it’s best to use it as an accent or on one large furniture piece rather than throughout the whole room. Nobody wants a Pepto pink reminiscent room in their home, so stick with simple and understated when using pink in your decor. For the rest of the look, I kept it neutral with a few whites and a small hint of brown. Put together, the pieces play off of each other to create a look that is glamorous, chic, and clean.

For a look that errs on the more chic side of glamor, go with pieces with that are more traditional with clean lines and simple frames. With a chic interior, the goal is for the details to be appreciated for their own contribute, but for them to all work together as a complete design. As you can see with the look above, none of the furniture items are overbearing or large. The goal of these items is to give you something to work with no matter your color direction.

    I like golden details, but prefer… silver ones:)
    Silver, glass and metal details are the best way to create glamour interior style.

      I love silver too, but I’ve been really feeling gold lately. Maybe the trend has convinced me? :]
