Playing interior designer for the day is always fun. But some of us need a little more help than others.
You might have kept things pared back from now on if minimalism is more your style. But some rooms scream out for a little indulgence. Any baroque-inspired architecture or extravagant fireplaces are complemented by more luxurious home décor.
This doesn’t need to come at an unreasonable price, though! We’ve picked out some easy ways for you to add instant luxury to any room.
Add statement lighting
Switch out your dull old lampshade for an elegant chandelier or other crystal-encrusted design. As they catch the light, chandeliers will scatter light beautifully across the room, opening up the whole space. Use websites like this as a starting point for your new glittering light: lightingmiami.com/
Embellish your bedside table
This might sound a bit of a strange suggestion, but it really works. Making a surface such as your bedside table the focus point of a room means you can build upon it with accessories. Mirror surfaces and metallic are practically synonymous with decadence, so focus on these. Frame all your photos in stunning mirror frames. Hold all your plants in geometric, metallic plant pots. And scatter gold, bronze or silver candle holders all over.
Add irresistible scents
When your room smells delicious, it instantly creates a different impression to a room that smells a little bit damp or stuffy. Line your room with luxurious scented candles or rich incense. Woody and vanilla notes ooze the ultimate class and will keep you feeling relaxed day in, day out. Any guests will appreciate the amount of care and pride you take in your room – they will probably treat it better when they visit too!
Add a sateen throw or bedsheet
Sateen is a word that probably sounds fancier than it actually is. It is simply a fabric that is super soft, luxuriously lightweight and has a premium appeal. It also looks a lot more expensive than it actually is! A rich gold or silver silk or satin throw will leave your room looking like it belongs in a historic castle. Layer on your sheet or throw with a plain white duvet cover and white pillows. Then add a mixture of smaller plain white and gold cushions to create the ultimate impact.
An art deco mirror
Adding an intricately engraved mirror to any room will stop visitors in their tracks. Go for a supersized mirror to open up your room and make it feel bigger and brighter. This trick works particularly well if you have a fireplace, or one plain wall, which you can prop your mirror up on. As before, it’s best to go for a metallic style such as gold or bronze for maximum decadence.
Now, you have yourself a room fit for a king. All there is left to do is rest your head on your soft new sheets and appreciate your amazing interior design work.
