Sofas
Feel like a person of leisure, whatever your budget, on one of these sleek sofas. Their modern, thin track arms are juxtaposed with traditional tufting, so you can recline in style and reflect upon life’s great issues: style, fashion, culture and what to order for lunch.

Plush love
The easiest way to infuse your room - blank slate or not - with new colour? Toss cushions of different patterns in the same colourway. (Note the resist-dye ikat print of both cushions that unifies the look.)

Bowled over
We're nuts for the dazzling interplay of the matte-finish exterior and glossy interior of the organically chic bowls. Fill them up or just let them shine - literally! - on their own.

1 HIGH (top), $275 (large)
Calvin Klein ceramic Verso, Elte.

2 LOW, $75 (large)
Stoneware, Elte. glam-livingroom-cabinets.jpg
Mirror, mirror
Don't just hang them on your walls! Whether on tabletops, cabinets or accessory displays, reflective surfaces catch the sun and throw its rays around the room, amplifying its - and your - natural glow.

HIGH (top), $2,245
Leah Low in Limed Oak with adjustable shelves and pulls, Cocoon.

LOW, $600
Wood veneer with touch-latch doors, HomeSense. glam-livingroom-frames.jpg
Glamour shots
What aspiring fashionista didn't decorate her pre- teen bedroom with pages from beauty magazines? Thankfully, Conde Nast (who publishes so many of our favourite media mainstays, from Vanity Fair to Vogue) has finally made it appropriate for us adults to do so, too!

HIGH (left), $525
The diva is in the details. Simple white frames get gussied up with a touch of glitz in their edging. The HIGH option is double-framed with a striated white lacquered outer frame and a textured pewter-coloured inner frame, and features a half-inch-thick archival mat.

LOW (right), $239
Though still elegant, the LOW option features less: a plain white lacquered frame with a silver accent insert and a quarter-inch-thick standard mat, demonstrating that a little goes a long way when it comes to what glitters.
