Think about how you shop for clothes: The things worth investing in are classic, timeless—shoes, handbags, coats. The same goes for your home! Invest in key pieces that are worth spending a bit more on to complete the look you’re going for.
Splurge worthy items? Sofa, dining room table and chairs, sideboard, lighting, bed headboard/frame, and rugs.
Making an investment into a larger piece of furniture, like a statement sofa, will create maximum impact in a rooms décor. And by paying that little bit more, you can be safe knowing that the quality is not only going to look and feel luxurious but the product will also have a long warrantee. Nowadays, retailers are really providing consumers with so much choice. If you do buy pieces of furniture from independent or online stores, you can expect to have a choice of tens if not hundreds of types of styles, colours and fabrics. Meaning you can go all out and buy that yellow or cobalt blue sofa.
ADD FLOWERS & GREENERY
A fast and fail proof way to bring a look together is by adding plants and greenery. It will instantly add that luxe look when paired with metallic plant pots, on trend plant stands and macramé planters. And remember, plants are not just for the dark corners of your room anymore. Style it on a drinks trolley like below, or make them a feature on your sideboard or coffee tables. Alternatively, you can go for faux flowers and plants which are now incredible quality and super realistic.
STYLING AND ACCESSORIES
A luxurious home always has layers: books and candles decorating the coffee table, a rug covering hardwoods, floor to ceiling curtains framing the windows, throw pillows or a cozy blanket laying on the sofa and bed, crown moulding marrying the wall and ceiling—the details are what make a home feel personal and complete. Pay attention to layers and details that could make a big difference in your space. Read my guide here to the best Interior Design styling books.
Tip: Changing the hardware in your home is a quick, inexpensive, and instant upgrade. Think Satin Brass or Nickle to create an expensive look.
Now lighting can make a dramatic difference to a room. Whether its a statement piece or a flush ceiling light, it is usually the first item in your rooms décor that will catch people’s eyes. If you are lucky enough to have high ceilings, then a drop light is a great idea. There are many designs to choose from, so depending on the width of your room, you can choose a single pendant or a multiple arm chandelier or sputnik light.
Also, choose a timeless piece. If you are spending a little extra, you want to make sure that you are going for a design that is going to be versatile enough to fit in with any future home décor changes.
