Your living quarters will be more interesting with the addition of furnishings used creatively and/or “off label”. Add a little glamour to modest surroundings and you’ll look like a genius. Conversely, mix the right flea market find into a pedigreed setting and your “cool home” quotient will go off the charts. Who knows? A little slumming could produce a stunner.

While the over-arching trend is for reclaimed and vintage, European and/or American, there is still room for a little glitz. Shiny, metallic finishes and accents, and glass used in a multitude of ways still spell glamour. While great home design is often a mix of the lux, the low and the just plain odd, you will be best served with an appetizer size of glitter rather than an “all you can eat” extravaganza; Traditional values being so big right now and all that.
