There are some things in life that should be done well, no matter what. You wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and opt for fabric seats instead of leather. Nor would you fly first class and ask for the house white wine instead of champagne. If you choose a custom luxury home design for your Perth home, the next logical step is to select luxury furniture and decorative items to showcase your individual personality.
Selecting timeless furniture
Decorating an entire home is not only expensive, it’s time consuming. Which is why you can often go into an older luxury home and be appalled at the decor. After committing to a certain look, it can be difficult to change, meaning your home could date very quickly, even if the design itself is superior and contemporary in every way.
The key here is to choose furniture that is timeless, and also to concentrate bold statements into easily replaced items. For example, modern wooden furniture can be contemporary while alluding to craftsmanship and simplicity of days gone by. This is why, according to Allied Market Research, wooden pieces have the highest demand in the global luxury furniture market.
Aside from choosing versatile and timeless pieces, it’s wise to make your statements with accessories rather than fixtures. At Exclusive Residence, our award-winning interior designers will help you to select fixtures and fittings that are elegant and beautiful, and will remain so for years to come. However, it’s wise to bear in mind that you can change the rugs, throws, cushions and curtains more readily than carpet, tile or countertops. If you want a bold and striking theme for your house, make sure you are able to personalise it at a later date.
Sleek and contemporary
When choosing glass or metal furniture, which are also immensely popular choices for luxury homes, remember to consider the shapes you choose quite carefully. Not only for practical considerations, but also for their affect on the mood and dynamic of your living areas.
According to The Fashion Design Manual, written by Pamela Stecker, shapes have varying influences on our perception. For example, the strong and bold lines of rectangles and squares emote reliability, while the sharp corners of prisms and diamonds create a feeling of excitement.
Ms Stecker also points out that shapes can be geometric (circle, square, etc), natural or non-objective – which is to say, abstract in a way. Natural shapes are quite in vogue at the moment, as are strong geometric shapes made out of natural materials – think of thick wooden table tops with a driftwood appearance.
No matter which way you lean when it comes to interior design, you’re sure to have a blast decorating your custom home, and with Exclusive Residence, we don’t make you wait – your home can be built within one year!
