I have tons of vintage which I love. I've got modern bookshelves and side chairs, a traditional sofa, cottage kitchen chairs, etc. etc. What I am realizing is that part of me really likes the glam/glitzy/girly stuff too. The big pink artwork, the parsons desk, the brass and porcelain accents, a ghost chair, sheepskin throws, blue and pink pillows...The more blogs/magazines/pinterest pins I look at, the more I am able to hone in on the exact elements that I feel drawn to, and subsequently what I am missing in my own decor.

I have a thing for signage and letters, as in I'm obsessed with them. I have two signs in my apartment, one is an old Budweiser sign and the other is my HUGE green pharmacy sign, ironically that both light up. Maybe I'm into light up signs. Strange. Regardless, I LOVE this 'love' sign. It's decidedly more feminine than my manly distressed signs and I am really starting to dig gold accent pieces around the home. Those bulbs are totally Hollywood let me put on my makeup like a movie star glam. Also that little corner of a chesterfield sofa is amazing.

I'm green with envy over this super girly work space. I don't have an office or anything (clearly) so this sort of nook is right up my alley. I like the simple white desk--I've been seeing 'X' tables a lot recently, and the ghost chair seems to be the classic glam accent chair on the street. The print above it--'For Like Ever' seems to be pretty popular, but I am still into it. You can buy it here and some day I plan to for myself. Here's a closer-up of the details:

So, on my "Glam it Up" wish list (for now...):
A headboard--this is the closest thing I've been able to find to the one pictured up top, and that's a decent price at $349.99 for a queen with free shipping.
A plain and simple desk along these lines:
A faceted mirror like this:
Some cake stands to corral perfume or use as decor:
Some bold throws:
A brass lamp:
What's your style? And more importantly...what's on your wish list??
