Pink and Gold Glam Living Room

It’s probably evident by now, but 90% of the time I’m drawn to a more rustic and masculine interior design aesthetic over a chic or feminine one.  However, roughly 5.67% of the time I’m drawn to ultra-girly, glam spaces.  I never did the whole single girl with her own apartment thing, so I missed out on that phase of life.  I was in a pretty serious car accident at the end of high school which vastly changed my college plans, so I ended up living at home through college.  I got married not long after graduation and my husband and I promptly bought our first home together.  So, there was never a time when I had my “own” place (though it could be argued our entire first home save for our closed-in-garage-turned-man-cave was “mine”) that I could throw up pink everywhere.

Accordingly, I love looking at feminine spaces like today’s living room.  I also like to imagine the type of person who lives here and what phase of life they happen to be in.  And if they are married, how did they convince their husband to go along with it?  What did they have to compromise and let him decorate??  Here’s how you can get a similar glam look:

  1. Lamp – This lamp looks to be the exact one used in the photo.  Here’s a smaller, less expensive option.
  2. Couch – I like the throw pillow back of this couch.  Looks comfy.
  3. Leopard Pillow – Leopard is so versatile.  It plays nice and looks great in a masculine or feminine aesthetic.
  4. Side table – I’ve used this side table in other looks I’ve done.  The simplicity of it makes it quite versatile, too.
  5. Coffee table – Hooray for a coffee table that has great form and function.  Here’s a less expensive option without the middle shelf.
  6. Pink pillow cover – Does it get any more feminine than a pink velvet pillow?
  7. Faux fur rug – It would be darn neigh impossible for me to keep this rug clean in my living room, but can you imagine how soft and cozy it would be underfoot??
  8. Gold sphere – Bringing in a little more glam with this gold and marble sculpture.
  9. Faux fur throw – Again with the faux fur.  This would be easier for me to keep clean.  And still just as cozy.
  10. Tom Ford book – This book, like anything Tom Ford, is not cheap.  But it definitely makes a statement.
  11. Starburst – I’ve had a few of these in my house for years, and they still make me happy.  I don’t know if I’ll ever bored of them.
  12. Basket – Bringing some contrasting texture in the mix.
  13. Coasters – I own these and love the look of them.  The copper coat has chipped some, but it gives them a little bit of patina.

Even though my interior design style is more masculine, my fashion sense is decidedly feminine.  Pink, gold, flowers, lace, give it allll to me.

Jaime King wears Maison Schiaparelli to Rouge One premiere

Jaime King recently wore this shimmering black and gold dress to the Rogue One movie premiere (RIP Carrie Fisher) in Hollywood.  Aside from the butterfly on the bust (seriously, WTF), it’s a beautiful gown from Maison Schiaparelli.  I love how the gold fades into the black.  Or does the black fade into the gold?  Either way, I thought it a perfectly glam dress for a New Year’s Eve party.

You probably already have your NYE outfit picked out–even if it’s just your favorite pair of pajamas (high five, you party animal!).  But if you’ve made last minute plans like, ahem, me, here is a collection of black and gold dresses that might give you a little inspiration.  Black and gold dresses are appropriate for any party, mixer, or for tucking away in your closet “just in case” you need a fancy dress on short notice.  Also?  They’re all under $150.21 black and gold cocktail dresses under $150
