Clean lines, neutral tones, and minimalism—so last year. These days, we’re leaning into bright colours, bold prints, and (lots of) drama. It’s time to welcome the charms of boho-glam charm into your home.
A brief history of glam
Glam aesthetic emerged in the 1930s, just before the mid-century aesthetic took hold. Inspired by the extravagance of Hollywood’s Golden Age, glam was made famous by renowned interior decorator Dorothy Draper. The look borrows from art deco and mid-century modern. When combined, they create a unique and contemporary look. Boho-glam’s casual modernism is rooted in a bold mixture of bohemian and glamorous trends.
Living in colour
Boho-glam is a charming aesthetic that lets vibrant colour do what it does best: make a major statement. Feeling extra? Paint your walls, style with colourful furniture, or sparingly on small decor items. Strike the right balance in pastels, dark saturated colours, or rich, vibrant hues to create surprising and delightful contrasts. We love seeing colour combos like orange and turquoise, fuchsia with emerald green. Incorporate metallic accents for some extra shine.
What boho-glam does so well is bring together, well, everything. Think velvet with rattan. Wood and glass. Metal accents and linen fibres. Rugged leather with cool marble. Because when it comes to boho-glam, the only rule is anything goes. The key to unlocking the aesthetic is playing with unexpected combinations and using a mix of complementary but opposite materials. Go for something elegant and luxe, then tone it down with a more demure counterpart.

Plenty of room for plants
It wouldn’t be boho-glam without plants—and we mean lots of ’em. Large, luscious palm plants will add charm to the space. So will hanging plants near a window or light source. If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry. Invest in high-quality artificial plants. Your guests will be amazed—and none the wiser.
Deco to the max
Boho-glam’s motto is more is more. Pile on the drama, accessories, colours. Sashay away, minimalism because it’s maximalism’s turn now. What you’re trying to achieve with boho-glam is a space brimming with excitement, but in an “organized chaos” kind of way. The next time someone says “less is more,” tell them that’s not always the case.
