Last year’s glamorous trend of Hollywood Regency design takes a turn to modern sophistication with touches of white, silver and color married with black. Streamlined glamour is brought in with the use of rich, opulent details such as glass mosaic tiles, crystal chandeliers, upholstered headboards, and memorable one-of-a-kind decorative accessories. Our favorite implementation of “Sophisticated Glamour” is Matthew Quinn’s Intarcia bath collection at the MTI Whirlpools’ exhibit booth at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show 2009 (shown below).
How Sophisticated Glamour Applies to Home
Implementing this trend at home requires moderation and a sense of balance. Using too much black can be overpowering and visually harsh. Take your cues from Matthew’s use of black, blue, and silver as well as his exquisite (and balanced) mix of feminine and masculine design elements used to create the sophisticated, and elegant bathroom vignette below.
