Everybody wants a warm, inviting home but not many of us want to break the bank trying to achieve it. Here are some easy ways to add a touch of luxury and sophistication to your living space without emptying your bank account:
Go Light with Walls
For a classy look, opt for paints in white, cream, mocha or sage to make your room look brighter and cleaner. The room will look fresh and the light hues make a great background for the addition of whatever décor and accessories you want.
Go Big with Art
Once you’ve chosen a light shade for your walls, don’t be tempted by a busy, wallpapered feature wall but choose oversized art pieces instead. Art can be picked up reasonably, or design something yourself and let it do the talking for your walls.
Light It Up
Outdated lighting fixtures ruining the vibe? Remove old ceiling lights and opt for a statement lighting fixture instead, A stunning pendant or chandelier is just what a room needs for a real luxury feel. For stunning bespoke lighting, visit http://roccoborghese.com/
Re-style a Busy Bookcase
Unless you’re an avid book collector, it’s time to clear some space on your shelves and add an ornament or sculpture. Some small plant pots or glamourous storage pots will give your bookcase a tidier, more balanced appearance.
Whether you’re dealing with outdated carpet or wooden flooring, a thick, luxurious rug will work wonders in creating cosy comfort, separating spaces, highlighting colours and adding texture to a room.
Soften the Sofa
You’ll be amazed at what a difference some luxury cushions can make to an old sofa. Not only do they add maximum comfort but add a great layer of texture to the décor. Mix up the colours, sizes and patterns on a neutral layout for maximum effect with minimum effort.
Mirrors are perfect for giving the illusion of more space. They also add a touch of class to otherwise bare walls. Whether you choose a simple design opposite a window to increase natural light or an ornate design as a statement piece, they are a simple yet stylish addition to the décor.
Bring Me Flowers
Whatever your personal favourite, incorporating vases, vintage jars, house plants and fresh or artificial flowers brings colour and life to any décor design.
If you have high ceilings, long curtains can look really classy. Hanging the curtains from where the wall meets the ceiling, with a little fabric to pool on the floor creates a luxury, high-end look to complete your living room décor.
