If silky textiles, gleaming gold, luxe accents and traditional silhouettes set your soul ablaze, your home decor personality is classic glam. Elegant, sophisticated and luxurious, the aesthetic is unapologetically posh. To create the look, opt for soft yet luscious fabrics on furnishings, rugs and window coverings (think velvet, silk, sateen) and finish off the space with mirrored case goods, crystal chandeliers, furry throws and pillows, and a healthy helping of glitz.

The color palette may be rather neutral in the dining room above by designer Lauren Liess, but the mix of raw silk on the curtains, gilded wallpaper and brass-accented furniture make the space anything but bland.

The heavily veined marble, freestanding soaking tub, and chrome and mirrored furnishings give this bathroom from Desire to Inspire an undeniably glam feel.

Is there anything more classic glam than a Parisian apartment? The gilded mirror above the mantel really pops against the white-on-white moldings. (via Elle Decor)

A slightly more modern take on the glam aesthetic. The designer of this space found on AD Espana actually used ceiling medallions painted the same color as the wall to create a custom installation!

Velvet-upholstered furnishings? Check. Plush, furry rugs and pillows. Check. Glistening chandelier. Check. This Toronto bedroom from Home by Design ticks all the prerequisites for a classic glam boudoir.

Designer Stacey Cohen took full advantage of a little inset nook and squeezed a vanity into it. A velvet tufted ottoman is the perfect perch for primping.

Stylist, designer and blogger Christine Covey went full-on drama in her bedroom with satiny charcoal walls, delicate French-inspired furnishings and plenty of glamorous touches throughout.

Sometimes, glamorous can embrace a more-is-more design philosophy, but it also shines in a simple setting like this sliver of a living room from Apartment 34. A soft fur throw atop a velvety sofa, a vintage brass side table, and minimalistic art set against beautiful wallpaper is all you need to make a statement.

Again, the Parisians know how to pull off this look in a way that doesn't feel overly styled or contrived. The living room above, found on Elle Decoration, is simultaneously glamorous and warm/inviting.

A gold kitchen is not the easiest of things to pull off, but the designer of the above space featured on Elle Decor did so effortlessly by going with a toned down version of the metallic on the cabinetry and mixing in natural materials like the marble countertops, backsplash and floor, and ornate wood frame.

Here's a solid formula to follow when putting together a glamorous living space, like the room above from Luxe Interiors + Design: Set a neutral base, go heavy on the metallics, and layer in a hint of jewel-like color. (Interior design by Smith Firestone Associates)
