Do you know the difference between a duvet, davenport and armoire? Does your wall decor and table centerpiece have to match the linens? Do you know the difference between primary colors and secondary colors? If you answered ’yes’ to any two of the previous three questions: congratulations, the Bravo network would like to offer you your own television series! But, if words like camel-back, drop-leaf and love-seat bring to mind the pictorial from that certain magazine you’ve got stashed away in the garage, read on.
Directoire – The end of the aristocratic regime brought about a departure from any sumptuousness that remained and the period known as the Directoire, when a board of directors ruled France, saw a much simpler and more delicate sense of style. Curvy cabriole legs were replaced by straight, and furniture became angular and severe in shape. Elaborate marquetry was replaced by plain waxed or painted woods and fabrics had simple stripes and delicate florals as decoration, all of which anticipated the Empire style.
The furniture needs to have rather complex lines and curves. The sofas or armchairs can be modern and simple but then more accessorizing is needed, therefore more traditional furniture will look better. The dressers, tables, bookcases and other furniture should have lacquered, mirror-like surfaces. The shape can be geometrical or abstract, depending on the direction you would like to go with your interior. Materials used can be glass or dark wood (glamour interiors are generally dark).
Textiles are another important element in glamour interior style. The interior needs to be stuffed with pillow covers. They can be metallic, but also furry, leathery, patterned, silky. Rugs can be fluffy or rather normal with damask or animal patterns. Lighting is essential to the glamorous space we are designing. First and foremost, ceiling lamps are supposed to be chandeliers or modern variations on chandeliers. You also should incorporate sconces and desk lamps into the interior. After all, a lot of light is needed to reflect in lacquered furniture, metallic pieces of art and mirrors.
When it comes to interior design for your vehicle, there are a number of simple and affordable additions that can revitalize your interior faster than you can say ”queer eye for the straight guy.” And as any of those guys will tell you, simply tossing in a set of fuzzy dice ain’t gonna cut it, honey. Here are three of the easiest and most affordable upgrades you’ll ever make to your vehicle.
The first interior upgrade is also the most functional: a set of auto seat covers. Your upholstery can soak up sweat, dirt and other grime like a sponge. Before long, your interior reflects a dull, worn look and smells like a gym bag. But with a set of high-grade auto seat covers, you can protect your interior from spills, stains and other wear and tear that can permanently ruin your upholstery…and resale value along with it.
