7 Practical Design Ideas to Make Your Home Look Luxurious
Luxurious homes have a distinctive aura about them; they exude sophisticated flair, feel spacious and effortless, and are expensive, most of the time. But the secret to homes that look elegant and opulent is that not everything in them actually comes with a high price tag.
A touch of affordable home décor finishes can simply help lavish a space.
Because we are all for stylish and statement interiors; below are some ways to fake fanciness, without looking cheap… or breaking the bank.
Bring in metallic accents
It probably goes without saying that infusing hints of shiny metal accents can accentuate the room’s appeal and make it look elegant and opulent.
What’s more special about metal finishes is that they fit well with every design style; from the minimal to the maximal, while seamlessly bringing in warmth, texture, and depth to space.
Gold, brass, silver and copper work especially well when paired with jewel-tone colors like emerald green, ruby red, yellow topaz, and sapphire blue — and rich and soft fabrics such as velvet and silk.
Test your tolerance with the inclusion of metal in key pieces like light fixtures, occasional tables or stools, sculptural vases, ornaments, and picture frames.
Add something soft to treat your feet
Be it an entrance hall, lounge area, bedroom or dining space, laying down an ultra-stylish rug is the perfect way to lavish your house interior scheme.
No matter how minimal the décor and spirit of your home may be, a good quality rug usher in an irresistible cozy aesthetic and provides a stage for furnishings, giving them a visual home in the room.
Choose one that complements the room’s colors and textures, and adds an element of comfort and warmth.
Make your home feel spacious with mirrors
Besides adding sparkle and a touch of elegance, mirrors are a fantastic way to open up your space and maximize a room’s style.
Even better, they play a more supportive role in any home décor scheme; for instance, an accent mirror can easily become focal in a room and also act as the artwork in minimal settings.
Go for something unique and a little bolder for an instant wow factor: a frame in a geometric shape, a finish in shiny glints of gold, and a size too big, extra big!
Decorate tastefully with lighting
A bold and hefty crystal chandelier can spruce things up over a dining table, add modern sophistication in the entrance hall, or take center stage in a large bathroom — and at the same time, an ornamental or sculptural lamp can accentuate your living room into a beautiful showcase.
Add depth and luxurious sense of comfort with the right lighting and witness how your house interior design transforms into a seamless combination of functionality and style.
Introduce various textures with cushions
The hallmark of sophistication and luxurious living lies in the textures and fabrics incorporated into an interior space.
Cushions are the perfect feature; they add warmth and cozy to a room and complete any design style with additional opulence. Layer plush cushions in different fabrics: velvet, wool, cotton, faux fur on a sofa or bed to create a fashionable and elevated style statement. Your room is sure to look even more enticing with all its coziness!
Invest in statement artwork
Statement art breathes life and soul into space and can become its focal point that doubles as a conversation starter.
Art goes just about anywhere, but for it to look special, invest in pieces that make space feel true to you. For visual impact, create a gallery wall with pieces that tell a story — it’s these little details that enhance the room’s aesthetics and create a casual yet sophisticated vibe.
Refresh your room with a classic color palette
Regardless of the latest trends in interior colors, a neutral palette exudes warmth and sophistication that’s often hard to resist.
They allow the room’s architectural elements and textures to take center stage and blend together with a subtlety that creates a luxurious appeal. Soft grey, sandy beige, sea glass blue, taupe, fern green, and ivory are just some of the shades that add an elegant feel to any interior aesthetic.
