School recently started up again, and that means new school clothes for my kids, especially my daughter, who is a budding fashionista. When she picked out this adorable dress from Old Navy, I felt so inspired by the color scheme that I designed an entire Burgundy and Pink Colorful Glam living room around it.
The jumping-off point for this design (besides the dress, of course) was this stunning rug from RugsUSA. I wanted to find something with the burgundy and pink color scheme because it feels so sophisticated, yet also fun at the same time. The incorporation of the soft blue was an additional bonus, bringing in-depth and dimension to ground the punchy burgundy and pink.
Rugs in this vintage style are so versatile and play well with a variety of different interior design styles, from modern to traditional, bohemian to glam. It works especially well in this colorful glam living room.
After the rug, I sourced the Jennifer Taylor Home burgundy sofa (shown below) at Amazon.com. The clean and modern tuxedo style is a classic that will never go out of style, and the price point is uber affordable, making the bold color choice feel less risky.
The gorgeous marble fireplace makes quite a statement, so I went with a storage option that has a little detail for pizazz but feels subtle enough to not compete with the fireplace. Anthropologie has excellent colorful glam living room options, and the Daniella Buffet, with its floral brass inlay stems and mother of pearl blooms, is no exception.
The juxtaposition of the curvy bright gold vintage mirror works so well with the clean lines and dark wood stain of the fireplace mantle.
The round shape of the marble and brass Anthropologie Seaford Coffee Table is both beautiful and practical. It creates a logical conversation area and doesn’t impede the movement throughout the space.
Artwork can make or break a space, and these beauties from talented artist Leigh Viner definitely make this burgundy and pink colorful glam living room! She sells these prints and other stunners on her Etsy shop, and the frames are the custom gold bamboo-inspired Mandalay from Framebridge.
I kept the accessorizing simple so that it doesn’t compete with the gorgeous artwork. Marble lamps from Amazon, some pink peonies in a vase, and a stack of color-coordinated books complete the colorful glam living room look on the fireplace wall.
The wall opposite the windows needed a statement, but I didn’t want anything to loud or busy that would detract from the amazing Leigh Viner paintings, so I went with a uniform gallery wall. The large mats keep the wall from looking too busy, but the ability to personalize the space (and change photos out in the future) gives it a really fun feel.
Once again, I kept the sofa accessorizing very simple, with this great lumbar pillow from World Market that perfectly fits the burgundy and pink with a splash of blue color scheme. There is enough happening in the rest of this colorful glam living room where we didn’t need to add too many details here. Sometimes less is more in decorating.
The piece de resistance in this room is the gorgeous gold and crystal chandelier from Wayfair. Lighting really is like jewelry for a room, and it’s quite the showstopper here.
This burgundy and pink color scheme is a new one for me, but I absolutely love it and am excited about incorporating it into some client spaces soon. What is your “go-to” color choice? Do you ever find yourself inspired by something unexpected, like my daughter’s dress? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
