Interior Designer Charlotte Starling, owner of Velvet and Dash, former TV producer to the stars and Interiors writer for Dorset Magazine features William Holland Copper Baths in her top tips on adding ‘A touch of Glamour’ to your home.
Charlotte Starling says ‘It’s hard to put your finger on exactly what makes a home glamorous or super-stylish. For me, glamorous spaces are those which effortlessly combine the elegant and the exotic, the theatrical with the tantalising. If you want to conjure the appearance of lavish luxury in your home, it’s all about mixing styles and textures with aplomb. Daring use of bold colours and generous sprinklings of metallics layered with velvet, furs and silks all help, but mainly individuality and imagination.’
Combining the familiar with the unfamiliar, the decadent with the utilitarian can all be enough to create that ‘all important element of surprise’ and uniqueness. The William Holland freestanding Cuprosa french bateau chosen for this feature encapsulates this enchantingly. Set against a contrasting natural stone backdrop, the copper literally gleams with opulence, creating a Romanesque setting that evokes feelings of classic beauty, tranquility and romance.
However much style is subjective, there are always those items and spaces that embody a universal perception of glamour. Bold and eclectic choices, heaps of individuality and a helping handful of Chutzpah are all that is required to bring that ‘elusive wow factor into your home’…and unleash ‘a sense of drama!’ – Charlotte Starling, Dorset Magazine Interiors.
