3. Choose Warm Colors
One of the defining characteristics of any luxurious space is that you want it to feel inviting. You want your family and friends to wish they could spend all of their free time in the safety and comfort provided by rooms. Make sure you create that welcoming atmosphere by choosing the right paint color.
The science behind color psychology has been studied for decades. Warm colors like red, orange, and yellow are perceived as cozy and intimate. Cooler colors like grey and green have been associated with calmness and are used to make a room feel more spacious.
Draw your guests into the space by opting for deep, warm tones. Tan shades serve as a great neutral base on which to build brighter, more vibrant colors. But, if cooler colors are more your style, deep, jeweled tones to still give a subtle nod to luxury.
4. Offer Plush Seating
Close your eyes and picture yourself living in the lap of luxury. Do you see yourself reclining back into piles of pillows or struggling to find a comfortable spot on a minimalist seating set? Most likely, it’s the former. Give your home a luxurious touch by providing plenty of plush seating.
Whenever possible, make sure that your seating is cushioned and upholstered. Opt for richer, high-quality fabrics to really cement the luxurious feel. Don’t hesitate to choose a textured fabric that will help bring an extra layer of depth into the space.
Of course, it’s impossible to discuss plush seating without also discussing throw pillows. Those striving to achieve a more modern look should choose an odd number of pillows and arrange them asymmetrically. If your design is more traditional, go for an even amount and display them as bookends on your furniture. Whatever your style, be sure to choose pillows in varying sizes and coordinating colors.
