The "Glamily" Room

Your family room probably gets the most use of any room in your house, so you want to make sure it looks great and stands up to the rigors of daily use. Opt for sturdy, durable fabrics in rich, dark colors to prevent staining. Experiment with unique shapes and silhouettes for visual appeal and a more intriguing look. Just because this room has to work hard doesn't mean it has to look drab and boring.

Upgrade Your Bed Linens

While the classic white linens always look crisp and clean, one of the top design trends this year is to switch it up with vibrant pops of color and abstract patterns. It's unexpected and gives a more modern feel to your space.  Contemporary furniture, like a modern sleigh bed, amplifies this bold look. Try to match your accent colors to other decor in the room for a more cohesive appearance.

Pendant Chandeliers

No longer just a style of necklace, pendant chandeliers can transform the entire look of your room. Designed with artistic appeal in mind, these chandeliers make an impactful statement and can inform the direction for the rest of your decor to take.  Try a delicate one with ornate, curving metals for a thoroughly modern look, or choose one fashioned from wood for more rustic appeal.

 

Pedestal Tables

These tall, narrow tables make excellent accent pieces for small spaces. The narrow width and tall height help pedestal tables command attention without taking up valuable floor space. Use them to display favorite family photos, indoor plants or pieces of art to complete the look.

Power Desks

While it sounds glamorous to work on your laptop while sitting in bed in your pajamas, sitting at a desk makes you much more alert and productive. For 2016, look for desks with shiny accents, such as chrome or glass. Today's fashionable desks are bold and sturdy, creating a commanding presence to make you feel powerful and successful.

Traditional Tableware

The latest trend in tabletop design involves a return to past traditions. Obscure serving dishes, like gravy boats and elegant footed bowls, are making a comeback in a big way. Don't wait for a special occasion to bring out these beauties. Use them as a casual centerpiece for your dining table or as a decorative accent on your kitchen counter.
