The look of luxury – you might love it and, of course, your guests would be impressed. The question, however, is whether you can afford to satisfy your expensive taste. If you know the right interior design tricks, then yes! Here are five ways to design a space that only seems expensive (but is really quite affordable).
You would think that to create an expensive-looking home, one would have to buy a lot of decor and furniture. This, however, is far from the truth. Luxurious spaces are often simple and chic, and the pieces that are chosen for each room are considered carefully. In the end it’s all about the pieces you choose and where you place them, not how much stuff you buy.
Decorate with fresh flowers
Fresh flowers are an easy way to design an elegant space. Not only will they add color and a sophisticated charm to your home, but they also provide a pleasing smell and can help invigorate a room.
Mix it up
To create an expensive-looking home, you have to think like a designer. Instead of buying a set of furniture, mix and match pieces to create a cohesive, interesting room. When it comes to textures, use a variety instead of just one or two. Mixing things up is a great way to add visual appeal and show off your design skills.
Artwork can be very expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. And let’s face it – not many people can tell the difference between art that is going to break the bank or a piece that you bought on sale at a local shop. Try hanging up a large piece of art above the sofa, or use a blank wall to create a collage of smaller pieces.
There are many misconceptions about the color white. Some people think the color is boring or intimidating, but it actually can be used to create a chic style. White tables, linens and walls can all be used to give your home an expensive look.
