Achieving luxury interior design look is not simple and low-cost. Of course, there is no need to buy only designer items for your home but there are some elements of interior design that are worth spending more money on. What is more, you can only get this luxurious feel in fairly spacious interiors. I’m sorry to say that, but small ones will not have the same impact, although it is always great to try. In this article, I present some luxury interior design ideas.
Start with the basics
Darker color schemes (black, navy, dark grey) work really great to complete the luxurious look of the interior. However, lighter color palette will be fine as well. Paint the walls according to your choice. Navy walls can actually look amazing.
You can choose either modern, minimalist furniture, or ornamental and traditional furniture. It depends on whether you would like to go in a glamour or modern direction. Avoid furniture that can be described as cozy.
Materials and fabrics used to achieve the expensive look are mostly:
– dark wood
– silk and other slightly shiny fabrics
– glossy surfaces
– general abundance of decorations and accessories (with taste, you don’t want the cluttered look)
Complete luxury interior design look with decor
If you have all the furniture you need, it’s time to decorate. There are some interior design styles that fit into this expensive look a little bit better than others. Luxury home interior design would not be the same without either glamour or modern style. By modern style I mean minimalist and rather contemporary than mid-century.
Glamour style is expensive looking and rather ornamental. If you would like to go in this direction, consider adding decorative bars and embellishments on the walls. When it comes to lighting, opt for chandeliers and decorative sconces. It is also great to use desk lights. Fluffy, furry textures in pillow covers or rugs will add sophistication to the space. As for decor, the best choices are gold or silver accessories; even wall art may have some metallic paint on it. Last but not least, put an oversized mirror with ornamental frame in the living room or in the hall.
Overall, glamour makes a huge impression. Few “normal” people decide to design their apartments in this style. It’s not exactly cozy, but definitely original.
If you decide on modern interior design, and modern furniture, be sure to add many extra touches to the interior. Chandeliers and desk lamps will also fit into the modern style, but they can be a little bit more minimalistic (maybe geometrical?). You can play with different fabrics on pillows, rugs, and blankets but usually the furry ones look most luxurious, if they’re good quality. I would think about some very abstract pieces of furniture to bring some eclectic and sophisticated taste to the interior.
Furniture is generally the most expensive element in interiors and it is also the basis for decoration. I would definitely invest in good quality and good-looking furniture. You can change decor anytime you want but the furniture will generally stay with you a lot longer. As for decor, wall art can be expensive but if you can afford it, splurge on it by all means.
I prepared a compilation of really amazing pieces of home decor, which will be perfect to add a little luxury to your own apartment.
