The luxe living trend is all about infusing your home with opulent finishes and elegant lines. It’s a philosophy that is rooted in Hollywood glamour but eliminates the “new money” feel with sumptuous textures and timeless shapes.
While much of this design trend, at face value, looks to be more appropriate for the bedroom, take a look at how it translates to many other rooms in the house. By using bold chandeliers that glisten on living room ceilings to elegant patterned area rugs on the floor, the luxe look is modern and versatile. These architectural touches make the style more masculine and less of a hard pill for your man to swallow.
Some common design threads and tips that can be used when creating this look include:
Tip 1: Incorporate tufted furniture and pillows into your scheme.
Tip 2: Use mirrored accent tables and chests.
Tip 3: Make sure geometry has a place whether on rugs, wallpaper and valances.
Tip 4: Lighting should shimmer and sparkle.
