What is Glam?
This term refers to a particular style that’s ultimately meant to evoke luxury.
One of the hallmarks of this style is it’s use of materials. It heavily favors materials that are considered expensive, such as natural stone, crystal, precious metals, fur, etc. Mix that all with a maximalist sensibility, and you’ve got the basics.
But don’t start to worry that this style is out of reach of your budget. This style is actually known as being budget friendly, since you can make the most of fake materials.
You don’t have to shell out for marble and gold. Rather, just get items that have a similar look. For example, a marble print, or something covered in gold glitter. Printed laminate or contact paper are also popular.
The point is to add drama through lots of sparkle, rich textures, and a luxurious look. Because of that, this style is best used by those who favor bold, striking decorations.

Since these options are fairly bold, don’t be afraid to get creative with your placement.
One popular option during the holidays is to use them around the fireplace. You can hang or place them above the mantle. You can also stand them up around the hearth with other decorations. (Just keep in mind that you should move any decorations around the hearth when the fireplace is in use.)
Even if you don’t have a fireplace, placing them on the ground is a good option. Resting them up against a wall or against other decorations provides the same look as hanging them one a wall. It’s just easier since you won’t have to worry about fussing with nails or adhesive hooks.
For example, you can place them up against some presents, under the tree. This has the benefit of making the space beneath the tree look more filled. And you can also use it as an opportunity to provide a pop of contrast or color.
With smaller options, you can use them as centerpiece as well. Place them flat on a dining table or console table, and use them to encircle other decor.
As you can see, there’s tons of great ways to use these decorations.
Glam Decorations for Christmas
What’s fun about this style is it’s boldness. It’s not afraid to be loud, colorful, and shiny in the name of luxury and glamour. And while that may seem over-the-top to some, it’s actually fitting for this season.
After all, decorating during the holidays is all about doing what you want. Decorations should reflect your taste and your family. If that means lots of glitter, gold, and feathers, then go with it.
Plus, the decorations done in this style are inarguably gorgeous. Even if it’s not in your style, they’re still beautiful.
So try a glam Christmas wreath and add a little luxury to your festivities this year.
