You know where you are coming from and generally you might know where you are going to. But more important is where you are right now. The way you live and what surrounds you are important points for your inner-balance. This month, our luxury news is dedicated to Interior Design. Here are 3 interior design ideas that will provide you a feeling of luxury in your home or office.
1- Furniture, less is more.
When it comes to Interior Design, one thing more important than furniture is how much furniture do you place in a room. Ideally you should make sure you do not have too much things that would block circulation and even not fitting together. Choose your furniture wisely but above all, always keep the feeling that something is missing. This will mean that you have enough. Free spaces highlight the existing furniture and will provide you a feeling of elegance and luxury.
True Luxury in the 21st century is empty spaces
Do not charge your ambiance too much. If you have enough space to install 2 couches, just put one. If you can place a 3 doors locker, just place one with 2 doors. This will create free spaces in your environment that can highlight your furniture in a stylish way. Less is more and in this case, it will make your interior “breathe”. Do not try to fill every square centimeter of your wall with pictures. Very often we say that a picture worth a thousand words. At LuxuryActivist we tend to say that a “good” picture worth a thousand pictures. Keep some parts of your office or your home with empty walls. White spaces can provide you freedom to dream and to think. Again, if you can place three pictures in your wall, choose just one. Take a very inspiring picture that will be highlighted by being alone in the wall rather than drowned in the middle of dozens of pictures. See the example of art galleries that generally isolate the master-pieces in order to provide a distinguished area for it.
2- Plants, choose carefully
In order to provide you a well-being luxury feeling to your interior design, you should pay attention to one important detail: plants. Green plants are great elements to your environment. Not only they purify the air, but they provide a natural touch that can be well perceived. It will take away all tensions and provide a great aesthetics element.
Here are the list of top plants you should have at home or at your office. They are know to purify the air, to take away tensions and provide a balanced and relaxed atmosphere. If you play them well, you might get a very inspiring interior design.
- English Ivy
- Aloe Plant
- Rubber Tree
- Peace Lily
- Snake plant
- Bamboo palm
- Spider plant
- Red-edged Dracaena
- Golden Pothos
Another important point on plants. Make sure you do not overwhelm your interior with too many plants. You are not a botanical garden and plants should not block your view from the surroundings. Our advice is to choose a corner or a specific place that will fit your horizon.
3- Small details are sometimes the main thing.
In order to craft the perfect luxury interior, you will need to play on details. Details are everything. Pay attention to vases, boxes, lamps and small accessories. For example, try to place a small table zen garden either on a furniture located in your main entrance, or in the middle of a meeting room. You will see that people will be automatically focused on it. Lamps and vases are strong accessories that you can use to modulate the overall ambiance. You can choose them very modern and technologic or at the contrary very natural and organic. Up to you to decide what would fit the best your environment.
As you can see, bringing a hint of luxury into your interior is not that complicated. You just need to find the right combination. One important thing: never hurry your decisions. Take your time, think about it and when you are sure, then make your adjustments. Pay attention that all these different elements will be part of your day-to-day life, which means they will have a strong influence on you (more than you can imagine).
