Swing from the Chandelier

8 Feb

Hello Glamourites,

In regards to design I find that my own style is constantly changing, more accurately it’s probably forever evolving. I also think that this could be dependant on my mood, as to which colours or emotion I want to portray in a space. This can be hard if you’re constantly trying to change rooms in your home to match your current style. There are several ways you can do this without tearing apart the entire room or bringing walls down, it can range depending on your budget as well. One solution to this is updating your light fixtures, more specifically the chandelier. I believe chandeliers are a large statement piece in a room and are a great addition to any room no matter the style or size. Most people will associate chandeliers with the classic ballroom type with oversized crystals and a radius too obnoxious for any normal size room. However this is definitely not the only chandelier available anymore, there are thousands of designs and styles to fit everyones needs and character. Take a look at some of the inspiration pictures I found and perhaps you will soon be upgrading your dinning room lighting!

Something like this was probably what came to mind when you thought chandelier… I like this fixture in this space because it is mixing glamourous and rustic together with the worn wooden table. Because the table it very large and heavy it balances out and allows for a large light fixture above.  chandelier2

Here is a much more modern take on chandelier, it is eye catching with the use of scattered glass ovals playing with depth and height.

This fixture has the typical structure of a stereotypical chandelier however it is simplified, only using the steams to create the shape and no extra hanging accessories.

If you are looking for something extra unique this could be the solution for you. It can be a great DIY project as well, take wine bottles or mason jars and put the bulb inside the bottle then attach it to a board or a something to support the fixtures to the ceiling.

When you have a space with high ceilings you can get away with any size of chandelier like this baroque inspired piece.

Another simple DIY chandelier for over a four seat kitchen table or reading nook.

Fresh + Clean

26 Jan

Hello Glamourites!

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend and taking some down time to relax and recharge. My weekend has been fairly quiet but also with a little fun of course. It has been freezing here which doesn’t make it very enjoyable to leave the apartment. With it being January we are always reminded about new beginnings and starting fresh…I have taken that same outlook and applied it to design and possible room interiors. If we have a clean environment, it will rub off on us and encourage us to be the same way. Hope you get some inspiration from these pictures xx Glamour Planner

The contrast between bold and simple in this living space is ideal, the straight lines from the chair frames, circle table and window rectangles. Then the juxtaposition using the black and white to make a dramatic but while still clean atmosphere.

Fresh&Clean

This bedroom makes me feel I am taken back a few centuries. The detailing in the moulding and the bed posts are beautifully rich and gives this a pristine vintage look. Fresh&Clean3

For a smaller{ish} living room space this is made very grand, thanks mainly to the high ceiling which also allows too for the dramatic  chandelier. In this case, where the room is smaller and gets an abundant amount of natural light, having only black & white is perfect. Fresh&Clean2

On a smaller scale, an office desk can feel much more organized and clean if it has a neutral colour pallet. Also consistency for supplies and accessories helps with the visual aesthetic of the space.     Fresh&Clean4

The bathroom is a very important room as it is the first place you go after waking up. You want that room to make you feel fresh and therefore come across that way in the design. Here the simple lines and warm tones from the wood create a welcoming and awakening area.

Holiday DECOR

19 Dec

Hi Glamouirtes!

Hope everyone is getting prepared for Christmas…now only 6 days away!! Here are some of my favourite holiday decorating inspirations to add some festive cheer to your house. Transforming your home with those cozy touches completes Christmas for me; it brings joy and some sparkle and you can’t help but just smile! Let me know what some of your decor traditions are this time of year  xx Glamour Planner

Poinsettias, poinsettias, poinsettias! The most festive and bright floral plant can create an instantly more dramatic entrance way. These seasonal plants can also been placed around the house for a pop of colour.holidaydecor2

Christmas bulbs are not just for the tree….you can use a thick white string and hang them from your ceiling or chandelier or, as shown here, hang them from in clusters using ribbon. holidaydecor4

Garland or fresh leaf branches from the outdoors make a beautiful display on your mantle, counter, or as part of a table centrepiece. Grab some pine cones, berries or interesting things you may find to add colour and a festive flair.

Taking a wreath {doesn’t necessarily have to be red} add a leather belt or fabric around for a look-a-like Santa belt! Cute for a front door entrance.

A fun and easy way to create centrepieces or decorations is by putting bulbs, beads, cranberries, or any other objects into a vase!holidaydecor6

Hello Glamourites!

I hope {to all my Canadian’s} you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and managed to get through the week while still being stuffed with turkey! I know I still am. Thinking about the upcoming dark days of fall and winter upon us, I am even more drawn to this colour but I must say it is regardless one of my favourite colours. PINK. I know even if you aren’t a girly-girly it is still a fun colour to look at and brightens your day with a pop. Regardless of my future home’s theme I plan to have at least one room with some pink burst. I think it can add such an energy to a room and lift your spirits no matter the type of day you are having. Here are some fun spaces I think that the colour pink really works!             xx Glamour Planner

Normally that much of one colour in a hallway and doorways I would find too much but because you come from all white surroundings it creates a sense of light and excitement. pinkhallway

I would totally have this kitchen. It’s bright, energetic and creative. Everything you want for a kitchen space. pinkkitchen

For a more gentle pink in a dining room or living area this pale rose works well over the chandelier adding warmth.  pinkchandiller

Pink in a bathroom is a very good choice as it’s the first place you go once you wake up and you want something to give you a boost for the day. pinkbathroom

For a office space or a communal working space trying to be more industrial can still be a fun colour! pinkfurniture

Focus In

2 Sep

Hello Glamourites!

Well the time has officially come….school starts again tomorrow! Which is why I have been very bad with any new posts the last little while, as I have been getting organized and packed. I’m still very unsure whether to be excited or dreading going back, I am excited for new school supplies, is that sad? Anyways back on topic, as my current theme is to be focused in on school and my studies I thought these design inspiration pics were well done as they focused in on a specific object or place of the room. Very helpful if you are waiting to showcase a art piece or part of architecture.

Hope the start to your September hasn’t been too difficult xx Glamour Planner

This wall feature is completely eye-catching and it adds texture to the space with minimal other materials. ddc91315a13e407954e5325bea09f60b

Wanting to highlight the bed but without a headboard or fancy bed frame this indented wall art does the trick. e2d9238154619a241fd5ffb0f0f5e370Using the grand chandelier creates that focus to the centre of the room drawing it away from the wall detailing.

The DRAMA

3 Jul

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you all had an easy “hump day” Wednesday and excited for the downhill slide to the weekend! (I know I am) Yesterday I saw some very stunning and dramatic design photo’s and concepts. I think adding drama to a room or space is always a great aspect but having it throughout an entire house has to done in the right way or particular layout. These design choices I fell in love with and would love to incorporate them in my own place! Enjoy xx

This central hallway or lobby is UNBELIEVABLE, the combination of the vaulted ceiling, chandelier and continuing with the large window down to the floor detailing makes it.

The villa below, which is located in Lazio, Italy is amazing because of the balance and and central detailing making the initial visual that much more dramatic and eye catching.

The Unitarian Church located in Charleston, SC has such intricate ceiling detailing and along with the all white makes this 100% drama for the eyes!
