A Royal Wedding – Time to Celebrate British Glam Décor, MOD style
Yancey has a thing for Bling. Lately she’s been excitedly talking about exploring the Glamorous side of Mod and Modern Mid-Century Décor. I look forward to learning more about that from her since it’s an area of Mid-Century design that I haven’t explored.
When I think Glam Décor in general, I’m thinking of luxury. You say glamorous and I am thinking Hollywood-type glitz, show homes, amazing Las Vegas casinos, sleek pent houses in New York. More specifically, I am thinking mirrors, shiny metals and crystal, furs and animal prints, luxurious furniture, exquisitely decorated spaces, and plenty of bling.
How Glam applies to Mid-Century and Modern Décor, I’m still sorting out. Yancey will have to help me with that. Right now I am thinking that clean elegance, impeccable décor, and beautiful pieces of art and furniture are definitely part of the mix.
The photos that follow are a slideshow of Googled British Glam and Glam Retro Décor, in honor of our friends in the British Isles, and the Royal Wedding - which we hope you enjoy tomorrow!
What do you think, does Glam have a place in Mid-Century Modern Design?
Hope you enjoy the slide show!
Shine on! Braxton

|Sweet. Love the retro Glam. Love the art. That cocktail table is too cool!|
|The casual side of Glam?|
|Clean and modern, but Glam?|
|I'm struggling with this one. The chairs have elegant lines, but too youthful for glam?|
