Choose Rich, Deep Colours
Rich, deep colours are always more associated with wealthy, luxurious homes. Of course this isn’t always the case, but they can definitely give a feeling of grandeur. Just about any colour you go for can be made to look luxurious if you do it right, but if you want a safe bet, pick something like deep purple. You can even go for a simple black and white look, which is classic and sleek.
Add Metallic Accents
Metallic accents add an element of luxury without you having to do or spend much at all. You can have metallic picture frames, cushions with metallic thread, metallic vases, etc. There are so many ways you can incorporate metallics.
Use Texture Wisely
A home that is filled with plenty of texture looks more luxurious, for the simple fact it looks more interesting and put together. This isn’t to say that smooth, sleek designs don’t look luxurious. It’s just that textures like faux fur, suede, and wood when used together create a look that’s really pleasing to the eye.
Find Heavy Looking Accessories
Accessories that look heavy will look more expensive, and therefore more luxurious. They don’t need to be expensive. They don’t even need to really be heavy when you pick them up! As long as they look it, then it’ll work. Having fewer large accessories is better than having multiple smaller accessories. They can create great focal points.
Always Have Plants And Flowers
Fresh plants and flowers always look luxurious. Mainly because it can be expensive to keep them topped up! However, you can choose false plants and flowers if you don’t want to maintain them.
Make Artwork A Focal Point
If there’s one thing you’ll always find in luxury decor, it’s artwork. You’ll never find an expensive house or an owner with good taste that doesn’t have art in their home. Find a piece you love and display it somewhere prominent.
Focus On Small Details
Small details will make all the difference when you’re creating an element of luxury. Focus on things like light shades and fittings, how precise you are with your paint job, and things like that. If you're not confident in your painting skills, and artisan painter and decorator could get the job done to a high standard.
Invest In Vintage And Antiques
Vintage and antique things can make your home look unique and far more expensive. If you don’t have the budget for this type of thing, you can always take it on as a project and make old furniture look antique. It’s actually really simple to do!
