Luxurious Design Ideas For Your Dream Home

Can you make your home luxurious looking with lavish interiors at a budget? Many of us think that we need to spend a lot of money to get our house look grand and well-appointed. It need not necessarily be that you have to spend a lot of money on expensive items or provide too costly items. We can create a stylish looking sophisticated home without burning a hole in our pockets.

What can be called luxurious décor? Rich and ornate chandeliers, luxurious contemporary ceiling fans, masterpiece paintings, curios, high quality designer sofas, plush deep pile carpets, and a big spacious house will all go to make a house look grand and luxurious. But how can you make luxury affordable? How can you create a classy and chic décor without going bankrupt?

First you have to make the home look spacious. Whatever is the size of your home and rooms, you can make them look spacious, clean and uncluttered. Throw away all the unnecessary items that you have accumulated over years and which you do not use. Check right from the storage, kitchen, bedrooms, living room and patio – and weed out all the junk that you have accumulated.

Go for simple and classic style furniture. If you have some good furniture that is antique, try to get them restored. Well-maintained antique furniture makes your home look elegant. Likewise throw away all old cushions, pillows and throws ruthlessly. Get lively coloured cushion covers and drapery too. Use sheers and laces along with brocade and silk curtains.

Get the wall décor right. Discuss with your interior decorator what will look rich on the wall. Ask him for colours and patterns which will look unique and not ordinary. Get the silk finish paint for your walls. When you have installed all the lights you will need, the satin/silk finish wall décor will glitter and bring a rich look and ambiance very easily.

Get only natural fibres for upholstery purpose. Pure cotton, pure silk or pure wool will look impressive as upholstery fabric as well curtain material. Have a lot of lights around the rooms. When light reflects off the well-polished furniture, it adds definitely to the value of your home. And always pick and choose really personal and pricey decorative items.

Good furniture is for making your life more comfortable, home beautiful and adds to the overall ambience. Your furniture reflects your style, your preferences and your character. Furniture is one of the most powerful ways to create the style of your home. It can be a style statement – a powerful one that can impress favourably the guests and visitors at the first glance.

New furniture can be one of the easy ways to make over the look of your home. A home, unfurnished or without any specific wall colour or decor can be like a blank canvas. The furniture and wall decor are powerful tools to create the kind of home you want along with soft furnishings like drapery and cushions. Lighting is also vital to create the overall look.

The furniture style and upholstery are important aspects of interior decor for establishing the style you want to create. If you want a traditional and opulent look, solid wood furniture with gilt edges and other details can be chosen. Hand carved solid wood furniture give a grand look and if you add gold leaf or gilding to the carving, it can create a rich look.

When you are in favour of opulent looking traditional furniture sets – sofas, accent chairs, love seats and recliners etc – you need to have matching kind of upholstery that will create a rich look. Silks, brocades, velvets and silk-polyester blends are good choices for giving the rich opulent looks. Wool and wool blends are also good choice that can last long and wear well.

Striking Looking Bed-linen in Lively Prints And Pretty Colors

Bed-linen, drapery and cushions most of the time define the visual aesthetics of your bedroom. A good quality, fashionable looking bed with the best mattress cannot make the bedroom look gracious and luxurious. The overall ambiance of your bedroom is set by the kind of bed-linen and drapery you choose for your bedroom. A mismatched duvet cover, pillow cases, sheets and skirts can spoil the whole effect and overall look of your bedroom setting.

How you furnish your bed can make your bedroom look gorgeous and luxurious or downright simple. A matching set of bed-linen in silk or satin can transform the tone and look of your bedroom into something cool, trendy and grand! A complete set with embroidery or appliqué details with contrast trim details in cotton or linen will give a sophisticated look to your bedroom. Cool prints and contemporary checks also are another option for a chic yet simple look.

Layering can add depth to your bedroom. Layering with colors, with texture and with light fixtures can create a dramatic looking bedroom. You can keep the flat/fitted sheets/duvet covers in neutral tones so that shams, throws and pillows in contrast can produce a dramatic effect. Jacquards or silks, cool cottons or contemporary prints can look dramatic with quilted details and throw-over corners.

What are the fabrics that look great as bed-linen? Topping the list is silk and silk blends. The surface sheen and soft cool feel of silk fabric make this the popular choice. But real silk is pricey and silk needs extra care as it is delicate and gets abraded easily. It must be hand-washed and needs ironing. Today there are silk blends and silk-lookalikes are available which are more economical and sturdy too, though nothing like the original product.

Other fabrics like linen, cotton, organic cotton, flannel, chenille and synthetic blends can be a good choice if you think of budget buys. Natural fibers are always more comfortable than nylons/polyesters. Today bed-linen sets are available in fabrics which are treated for protection like anti- UV-radiation, anti-bacterial, anti-moulds, anti-allergens as well as anti-fungi.

Here are some images of striking looking bed linen from Inmod. These include duvet covers, pillow covers, flat and fitted sheets and often bed-skirts also. There are reversible sheets with dual textures that you can use alternatively. Don’t you think you would like one for your bedroom for adding such stunning visual appeal?
