A Few Golden Rules For Drapes and Carpets
Although hardwoods are often preferred, wall-to-wall carpets can still be classy. However, this does mean some additional attention to ensure that it remains clean and stain-free. If, however, a few stains have left their mark, try covering them with loose rugs that are big enough to create visual interest and cover the stain. In order for this to be successful, all feet of the furniture items need to fit onto the carpet to ensure it creates a cordoned off area. Curtains can also immediately provide visual interest or make a room seem untidy. Proper window furniture can cost a few dollars extra, but is worth the investment.
Add Some Dramatic Flair
Everyone can head out and buy a few throws and rugs, but not everyone can make a focal statement in a room that will garner attention for hours. Two elements seem to do this just fine: fire and water. Fire is a simple addition with a fireplace, whether traditional or the new modern wall-mounted options. Water is a trickier addition to an interior space but just adds another layer of luxe. Whether incorporating a calming indoor fountain or a fish tank filled to the brim with exotic fish species, it’s a sure way to create a great focal point.
Create Visual Interest
Class requires dumping the mundane and opting for more sophisticated finishes. This means swapping out those dated scatter cushions for more sophisticated textures and textiles. Also, look for slightly larger cushions to add a touch of luxury. This is also a good time to rid the house of clutter. The simple solution for clutter is to incorporate more storage. A range of clever storage nooks such as decorated boxes and trunks are a welcome addition, and so are coffee tables and ottomans with hidden compartments. Instead of clutter, rather fill those spaces with tasteful design elements such as candles and the odd ornament here and there.
Luxury doesn’t have to cost a fortune. A home with a clear palate simply needs a few added touches to give it a luxe look. Good lighting, great textures, and a soft smell all go a long way.
