When asked to think of homes in established capital cities like New York City and London, what often comes to mind is interiors that are usually well designed and stuffed with luxurious materials. Think leather chesterfields, polished marble surfaces and gold-accented furniture that will imbue your space with a little glam and pizzazz. If trying to replicate such a style in your own home, we recommend reigning in opulence and indulgence with a refined and timeless style to create a stylish and classy living space that will last for generations to come.
Luxury homes involve a great deal of paying attention to the details to lift up the appeal of a space. As such, use materials that convey style and luxury. Decorative accents, fabrics and rugs are great ways to add pops of colour and texture; while shimmering metallics can easily add an element of glamour to any space. Don’t hesitate to experiment with different material combinations – such as marble, metals and onyx – and in a variety of finishes, which will achieve a luxurious, modern look easily.
Yes, comfort is something we all prioritise at home, but there’s something about luxury homes that take the meaning of comfort and elevate it to a whole new level. Be it plush duvet sets, 1,000 thread count sheets, spa-worthy showers, and sumptuous soft furnishings, a luxury home means achieving stylish comfort without forgoing utility.
With exclusivity on the mind, curating a luxuriously-designed living space entails looking for elements that make a statement and stand apart from the ordinary. Such statement pieces can range from something simple like a large piece of artwork, to a plush day bed in the bedroom, or even a bespoke chandelier that serves as the centerpiece of a room. The point is to adorn your home with something unique and taking pride in showing it off.
