How to Create a Neutral Glam Living Room On Different Budgets

© Hadley Court

If you’ve ever dreamed of having the perfect neutral glam living room, you might immediately think of the expense. After all, luxury doesn’t come cheap, but you can get the look on varying budgets.

Whether you’re looking for a spot of inspiration or want to know exactly which home accessories will complement your chosen theme, this guide will show you how.

THE Inspiration

Hurlingham Estate

When creating a neutral glam living room, a good place to pull inspiration from is the big screen.

Think: the types of setting that are present in movies such as The Duchess, Sense and Sensibility or Dangerous Liaisons.

You want to mix period pieces with modern, clean shades to give a luxurious feel of glamour.

The Colour scheme

Shades of grey, cream, nude/neutral, and blush pink are perfect for this particular project.

Statement pieces

The sofa

A luxury sofa is a must-have for any glamorous living room. The tufted ‘Chesterfield style’ sofa is generally thought of but any cream sofa can also be considered.

Expect to pay anything between £600 and upwards of £1,000.

On a budget: Chloe Chesterfield Ivory Linen Three Seater Sofa, Oak Furniture Superstore, £649


Living room accessories

Add the glam element with a few, well chosen room accessories. You don’t want to overpower the simplicity of the neutral colours by adding too many elements.


A chandelier

A chandelier can add a period feel to a room in an instant.

Budget: Bryony Chrome 5 Light, Dunelm, £69, Splurge: Harriet 5-Arm Glass Pendant Chandelier, Laura Ashley, £225


The Statement Mirror

Statement mirrors are another great way to bring a glamorous edge to your living room. Think metallic colours and bold design; a sunburst mirror can work perfectly.


White flowers / metallic vase

Go crisp and clean by adding white roses to your room; real or fake it’s completely up to you.

It’s also another chance to bring the metallic luxe theme back by using interesting and ornate decorative vases.

Grecian or Italian influence can really work here.

Romantic cushions

Splurge: Pink Scallop Print Cushion, Cult Living, £28. Budget: Chenille Spot Blush Cushion, Dunelm, £7

If you don’t want your room to look overly basic in colour scheme, blush or nude can add the perfect contrast, particularly when it comes to scatter cushions.

Alternatively, if you like something that’s a little off-beat Etsy could be the place for you.

Why not chose a textured 3D rose pillow case to match your flower choice?
