Decorating a luxury home, where do you start from?
Usually, luxury homeowners leave decorations in the hands of professionals, but there are also people who want to get personally involved in the work. I certainly would, for me that part is fun, so here are some recommendations for such work:
Plan the Spaces
Almost every house for sale in Marbella , like most luxurious properties photographed in the pink press, are characterized by large spaces. That is the first aspect that we should look at when we consider the decoration. We can not think that this step is only recommended for small spaces; in large organizations is also key. Where will the furniture go? In what areas of the house will we spend more hours? What destiny are we going to give to each corner? … These are questions that we must answer in order to create a practical house with an atmosphere of comfort.
Obviously, it is advisable to make a good sketch of the house and draw in it furniture, armchairs and lamps. Today there are also many tools to make plans of your dream house of the most realistix.
Define a Style
Inside the luxury houses, each owner brings his style, but always with a common denominator: quality materials and care for details. Usually, the exterior and interior of luxury houses correspond. Modern villas, with straight lines and large open spaces, are usually decorated with minimalist style and contrasting colors, such as white and black.
The most classic houses have a completely different decoration, with furniture of more noble style and proliferation of ocher and gold tones in walls and furniture. Finally, rustic-looking houses include natural wood furniture combined with generally light shades on walls and curtains. This type of house usually uses the stone as decorative element, as much in walls as in chimneys.
Whatever type of house we have chosen, the important thing is that the style is in line with our personality and that we always contribute our “personal touch” in the combination of elements.
The choice of materials is fundamental in the decoration of a luxury home, both in the furniture and in the complements. Noble woods and quality fabrics are recommended . Attention must also be paid to lighting: hanging lamps and screens on side tables bring warmth and elegance, as well as a sense of luxury.
Carpets, curtains and cushions
These three elements, together with the pictures and objects of decoration, are the ones that have just added personality and style to the houses. It is necessary to give importance to the details without passing, the excesses in the decoration and the overload of the spaces do not mean luxury, they only overwhelm. It is preferable to start with basic objects and add elements, to fill the corners with all kinds of luxurious pieces.
