8 Ways To Create An Elegant Home
They say that living your best life starts in your home. The sense of inner peace through an organized and beautifully decorated home allows you to find clarity, inspiration, and fulfillment. But, most of us think that creating a beautiful home is expensive. The good news is that not all home improvements need to be costly. Most often, it’s the small changes that make all difference.
So, how do you start decorating your home to make it look more luxurious? Remember to think of it as a layering process. First, you need to know what style you’d like to create for your home. Do you like a minimalist design, boho, chic, European, or Balinese? Try to pinpoint what style you envision your home to be and which parts of it you’d like to start. If you are unsure and can’t decide which style you’re drawn to, that’s okay. The internet always helps :).
An elegantly-designed home looks more expensive, it translates to “glamorously understated.” It’s clean, minimal, organized yet cozy. It relies on timeless and classic elements but still makes a statement with glamorous touches. Glam elegance is achievable, livable, cozy, and inviting. I personally think you can infuse glam into any style you like.
So here are our suggestions to make your home look expensive less the cost!
An easy way to make a space look more expensive is with neutrals. Neutral colors never go out of style. It can highlight a textural detail and make an excellent canvas. Curtains? Try a neutral shade. Looking to replace your couch? Try one with a neutral-hued fabric.
By adding different textures to a room, you create a custom and more expensive look. Mix and match textures in your room decor to create a luxe interior designer look- leather, velvet, wood, metal, vintage, or linen. Add some texture so your space doesn’t look flat or boring so even though it’s a neutral color palette, there’s movement.
Carpet can contribute to the stylish look of your living room or bedroom as much as any paint color, bedspread, or piece of furniture. If you want your floors to stand out, choose a carpet that can add depth and excitement to an otherwise blank expanse of flooring.
Get gold for accents
Gold has been used in people’s homes to symbolize wealth for centuries. Centerpieces and bathrooms are easy places to bring in the look without gilding the lily, and there are some great alternatives to achieve the same look for less, there are other reflective metallics you can choose from such as brushed brass or rose gold which will offer a comparable element of luxe.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Reflective mirrors will make a room feel instantly bigger and brighter and make the room feel more expensive. You can lean an oversized mirror against a wall for a traditional twist. Metallic asymmetric frames also add a high-class glamour and circular mirrors are a classic!
Update your home’s artwork with one statement piece of artwork or small frames that is elegantly put together to make an interesting shape. When you hang an oversized piece of art by itself, it has a big impact. Look for inexpensive, fun pieces at thrift stores and flea markets, or you can use your own printer to print your photos and buy some elegant-looking photo frames!
You can never go wrong with flowers
Flowers help to create a fresh environment and add color to flat and bland-looking spaces. Flowers with vibrant colors, such as purple, red, blue, or yellow, create a more cozy feeling and elegant look to your homes.
Don't forget the curtains!
Curtains can make or break the look of your home. Not only do draperies make a space feel finished, but they also have the magical ability to transform an interior. Whether it’s creating the illusion of a higher ceiling, drawing the eye across a room, or framing views of a beautiful vista just outside, curtains can be a great way to inject your personality into a space and create a positive mood inside your home.
