We’re not talking about solid gold here, so worry not. Spray-painted gold paint and gold-plated accessories often play a huge part in adding subtle touches of glamour to a home.



Declutter. Rich people are rarely messy; they have people to clean up after them. For those who can’t afford that luxury, we’ll just have to do it the good ol’ fashioned way.

Hue so bright

Light hues invite light into your home, creating space with the illusion of dimension. It also gives the illusion of being cleaner and hence naturally giving your space a high-end vibe.

Ceiling to floor curtains

Half curtains may look cute, but they do nothing if you’re going after the sophisticated look. Elongate your curtains from ceiling to floor to give the illusion of taller ceilings and more space.

Big plushy cushions

They may not be the most practical things to have around, but big cushions exude luxe. If you can’t find big enough cushions, grab a soft cushion cover and add lots of stuffing. Tear open old pillows and cushions to save on stuffing.

Framed mirrors

A framed mirror will always look more extravagant than your frameless or plain-framed mirror. Grab elaborate photo frames to frame up your small mirrors or take one of these ideas here.

Large pieces of painting

They have to be expensive, they just have to be large. Or many paintings in one large space. Have your kid do a poster painting and call it Monet-inspired; your guests won’t don’t know the difference.
