While increasing the aesthetic appeal of your interior design and elevating the ambiance from decent to truly elegant might seem like an expensive and time-consuming task at first sight, the reality can be far more forgiving.
All it takes, is some smart accentuation and the use of right materials in strategic places.
No matter if you have the resources to completely reinvent the space, or if you’re simply trying to introduce a touch of class without busting the bank, there are plenty of chic and luxurious options to choose from.
Here is how you can lift up your home style with a touch of decadent elegance.
A cozy living room
Starting from the living room, you want to transform the space in such a way that it portrays comfort, yes, but also timeless elegance and aesthetic appeal.
After all, this is the place where the family gets together on a regular basis, and it’s also the place where you welcome your friends, coworkers, and other people you wish to impress.
To that end, go for a living room design that boasts a mix of modern and rustic details, interspersed with elegant accents such as a statement vase, free standing lighting, or an antique liquor cabinet.
Use a grand sectional as the focal point and choose the material and color hue that breaks away from the established pattern on the walls.
Choose a variety of textiles to cover the furniture and give the luxurious ambiance a much-needed comfy feel.
A velvet bedroom
Speaking of stunning textiles, one of the best ways to bring intimacy, peace, and positivity into the bedroom is to enrich the design with a timeless accentuating material. Enter, the velvet design. In order to give the bedroom a luxurious feel, opt for layers of velvet in complementary hues across the room.
From the headboard above the bed, to the chaise lounge at its base and the armchairs next to the window, you want every piece of furniture to glow in a subtle velvet hue. As a finishing touch, use contrasting colors and patterns for the sheets, and especially for the throw pillows.
A luxurious kitchen
It’s not always easy imbuing the kitchen with elegance and luxury, particularly because this is a place where people spend their time preparing food, getting ready for school, and grabbing a snack before work. Naturally, it’s a hectic, and often chaotic environment.
Therefore, in order to bring a dash of elegance to kitchen decor, you need to think about functional luxury above anything else.
Instead of plain old ceramic mugs and dishes, think of statement plate sets with gold accents or patterned tea cups with complementary saucers from Wedgwood, proudly displayed in your French cabinets. Be sure to go for an open, all-white approach you can accentuate with these kinds of details scattered throughout the room.
A bathroom oasis
The bathroom is a completely separate story on its own, and while it should boast elegant details, it should also contain natural elements in order to evoke positive emotions and act as a stress-free sanctuary.
A luxurious bathroom can oftentimes seem too cold and bland, so make sure you complement the marble floor and the elegant white bath with wooden details such as a mahogany vanity with complementary cabinets. Don’t forget to introduce greenery into the room in order to bring the design in and create an intimate setting.
An upscale office
Finally, your home office deserves to portray the luxury that permeates the rest of your house, especially if you plan on inviting esteem colleagues and clients into your home.
For this room, opt for a semi-monochromatic style, enriched with patterned black wallpapers and accentuated with metallic details such as an elegant desk lamp and or a statement chandelier.
Be sure to preserve the tone of the ambiance, so opt for a dark wood desk with complementary chairs in faux leather, preferably in an elegant, sloping design.
Lifting up the aesthetic appeal of your interior design shouldn’t be an arduous task, but rather a rewarding project that will bring your family the joy and comfort it deserves. Be sure to implement these ideas into your decor and you will have no problem introducing timeless decadent elegance into your home.
