We are obsessed with this eclectic living room belonging to The Glamourai! Mid-century pieces, 80's furniture and layering of cowhides beautifully mix to create a warm and sexy space. I love the clever way in which art is incorporated down below since the room is mainly windows. Use our guide to get the look!

When it's time for something new, there's no better way to update the look and feel of a room than with a fresh coat of paint. Painting can be an easy yet dramatic way to give a room a designer touch. When painting, you have lots of options- you can paint an entire room with ceilings, paint walls only, or create just on accent wall. In addition, there are different types of paints, such as matte, semi-gloss, etc. Flat paint, for instance, is best suited for ceilings, walls, surface imperfections, and anywhere else that a muted low-reflecting surface is desired.
Because it takes more effort to remove stains from this type of paint, a flat finish is best suited for the low-traffic areas of your home. Use low-luster, satin, and eggshell paint on areas where a sheen is desired. These paints are easier to clean than flat paint and hold up better under repeated washings. They withstand the wear and tear of high-traffic areas-hallways, woodwork, kitchens, baths, children's rooms, and playrooms-more easily than other finishes.
Semi-gloss and high-gloss paint and enamel are best suited for doors, railings, shelves, kitchen cabinets, furniture, window sills, and any other surface you wish to accentuate. The higher the gloss, the more luxurious of look. Below are our favorite turquoise looks. Paint a wall turquoise and then get a vintage Chinoise and paint it Chinese red for an elevated designer touch!
