Look of the week: Glamour

The glamorous look may not be for everyone but if you love luxurious fabrics, decadent finishes, pretty accessories and dramatic prints, then you're sure to love these ideas for adding glamour to your home. "A little bling goes a long way in creating a glamorous space," says Lisa Canning, Designer, Lisa Canning Interiors. "Layer chandeliers, beautiful vases and crystal accessories to create a truly luscious look," she says. "Glamour can be achieved very easily with wallpaper. Textured paper, metallic paper or dramatic prints create drama and visual interest."

You don't have to go overboard. Carefully select luxury pieces you love and pair them with things you already own to amp up the glam factor without going over the top. Here's some inspiration:
