Designing a luxurious home doesn’t have to be about spending a fortune on a complete home makeover. You can create a “wow” effect in your home and give it a luxurious appeal by simply introducing just a few impactful changes. Our special guest, lovely Chloe Taylor from Smooth Decorator, is giving you 8 simple tips on how to give your home an instant redisign.
Keep It Simple and Tasteful
A sense of effortless beauty is what will give your home a long-lasting, luxurious flair. You don’t have to go overboard with glamorous details and decorations because none of them will be able to truly stand out. Instead, you should declutter your home and create a clean base for your lush décor. When introducing certain elements, you should do it in moderation, focusing on accentuating their lavish features instead of overcrowding your space. Therefore, before implementing certain design changes, you should remove unnecessary items and create a clutter-free ambience where every carefully picked detail will stand out.
Paint it Right
Painting your interior is one of the simplest, yet most effective updates that will completely transform your home. The colour scheme you choose can either make or break your home design. For a luxurious vibe, you should go with a neutral colour scheme, picking colours such as ivory, blush pink, creamy white, soft grey or gentle beige. However, adding a pop of colour can be the perfect way to create visual interest in your home, especially if you go with royal hues, such as navy blue, rich purple, mustard yellow or regal red.
Install Dramatic and Fabulous Lighting Fixtures
Lighting fixtures can be used as extravagant focal points in your home, introducing a true feeling of opulence and style. Even a single chandelier can make a big difference if you pick the right style and material. For instance, embellishing your bedroom or dining room with an enchanting Swarovski crystal glass chandelier will create a mesmerising effect and an atmosphere that exudes luxury, style and romance. Investing in a Swarovski crystal chandelier, one of the most popular brands in the world, will bring you a range of options and designs, allowing you to pick one that truly fits your home’s style.
Use Big Artwork for a Big Effect
Instead of cluttering your walls with too many paintings, you can use oversized wall art to create a “wow” effect. For instance, you can place an oversized painting above your master bed and let it stand out as a beautiful focal point. You can achieve the same result in other rooms, as well. For a more cohesive look, you can use certain motifs and colours from your painting throughout the room, creating an ambience of balance and harmony.
Make Your Lush Bath Stand Out
Every luxe home needs a spa-inspired bathroom with an outstanding focal point. If your bathroom features a beautiful design, you can simply add one missing piece – a lavish tub. However, you don’t have to go with an over-the-top design. Just choose a plain, yet impactful look that will help you create a serene atmosphere. For instance, a modern and stylish freestanding bath that features a simple, yet infinitely sophisticated design of sleek, clean lines. Introducing such a tub to your bathroom will undoubtedly create a look of elegant simplicity. Placing a chic white bath against a dark wall will truly accentuate this piece that will dominate your entire home spa. Of course, you should keep the rest of your bathroom clutter-free, which will further draw focus to your elegant bath.
Spray It Gold
Adding a touch of gold to your living space will create a luxurious ambience instantly. This metallic finish can be used in a variety of ways, but the simplest idea is to transform some of your items using gold spray paint. This way, you can repurpose some of your old pieces, giving them a more lavish look. For instance, you can use gold spray paint to update your old lamps or transform some of your decorative details. If you want to make your mirrors more glamorous, you can spray the frame with a beautiful gold finish.
Decorate with Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers in elegant vases will introduce a feeling of freshness and positivity to your lush home. You don’t have to go overboard with accessories, but simply use natural beauty to style up your home. Placing a vase of fresh flowers on your coffee table or kitchen island can be the perfect embellishment that will not only introduce a splash of colour, but also fill your space with a beautiful scent.
Arrange in Threes
When it comes to decorative displays in your home, you should follow the rule of threes. This is a simple way to make your displays more impactful, memorable and intriguing. Thus, whether you’re decorating your nightstands or vanity, you should use three items that share a single feature, such as colour, texture or style.
Giving your living space a luxurious vibe can be surprisingly simple. All you need to do is implement small changes that will create a stunning effect. Bringing a touch of luxury to your home has never been easier.
