Rustic Glam with Harvest Table

I love to add a dash of glam whenever I can. However, sometimes it's hard to know how much glitz is too much. Are crystal chandelier + gilded mirror + Florentine sconces too much? How about throwing trellis wallpaper, fur fabrics, gold-leaf Louis chairs, mirrored furniture and brass figurines to the mix? The answer is, it depends. It is always great to have a predominant theme but I am a big fan of eclectic style, so much so that it would be difficult for me to brand a certain style on some rooms I decorated myself. For me, the key lies in balance and harmony. So what's better to ground the bling-bling than earthy tones? Likely revitalized by Restoration Hardware, rustic glam has become an ever popular trend for those that love understated luxury but also want a bit of sparkle. Rustic glam is comfortable, casual, balanced, organic and timeless.  

Recently I've been on the hunt for a harvest table for my basement craft room, like this chunky rustic parson harvest table. The clean look is like a blank canvas which allows me to pair it with chairs of any style . Another option to is go for a more traditional harvest table with turned legs.

When it comes to harvest table, the first thing that may come to one's mind is "farmhouse", "rustic". True and true. But it can also work with a décor style of the opposite spectrum - glam. Case in point, this rustic farmhouse works in perfect harmony with gold-leaf Louis dining chair, and the bronze crystal chandelier ties the two themes together.

 Or how about this parson table paired with feminine ghost chairs?

It also works with the ultimate glam décor staple - Hollywood Regency faux bamboo chairs.

This ought to be my favorite rustic glam room: wrought iron crystal chandelier and sconces and brass candleholder scream glam, yet the whole kitchen feels so grounded with a rustic harvest table.
Have you incorporated rustic glam into your décor?
