Creating a look of opulence involves attention to detail, high-quality materials, and a sense of sophistication. Here are five steps to achieve a luxurious interior design according to our very own Juliette Thomas:

Define Your Style and Concept

Develop a concept or theme for your interior design. This will help create a cohesive and harmonious look throughout your space.

To truly achieve a luxurious interior design, you must first identify your desired style for that space. Options may include contemporary, classic, modern, minimalist, or even a fusion of styles. Don’t be afraid to mix and match – these looks can compliment perfectly each other if carried properly. A particular favourite of ours is mid-century industrial, in which fluid retro design merges with rough and organic textures for an effortlessly cool and timeless effect.

Select High-Quality Materials and Finishes

Luxurious interior design is often defined by the use of expensive materials. Therefore, invest in high-quality flooring, countertops, cabinetry, and fixtures is essential. Opt for natural materials like marble, granite, hardwood, that are both durable and have a luxe visual appeal. Rich fabrics, such as silks and velvets, will elevate the look of your space whilst offering an additional layer of comfort. Finally, consider unique finishes like custom woodwork, gilded accents, and fine hardware to take your home to the height of sophistication.

Pay Attention to the details

According to Juliette, there is no such thing as luxurious interior design that doesn’t pay attention to detail. Which means workmanship and finishing should remain a key focus throughout the entire project. So, it’s especially important that contractors understand the highly intensive level of finishing required to set a luxury interior apart from other levels of interior design. In addition to quality, individuality is a key requirement in any luxury space, meaning your refined taste should be allowed to shine through. Including custom-made furniture and accessories will ensure a personalised and exclusive touch, whilst artwork is also a great way to inject a sense of uniqueness into any room.

“Don’t overlook the importance of lighting. Built-in ambient lighting is now fully expected as well as the the more traditional chandeliers and table lamps. It should never feel like an afterthought.”

Create a Harmonious Colour Palette

Use a balance of colours and textures to create a harmonious and inviting atmosphere.

A luxurious interior design demands a colour palette that exudes opulence. Neutral tones like cream, beige, and grey are popular for a reason: they’re wonderfully versatile. But you shouldn’t be afraid of using bold, deep and rich shades, such as burgundy, navy, and emerald green, too. These hues are fabulous for adding character and to your space for a more alluring atmosphere. And don’t forget to those metallics! Accents of gold, silver, or brass are both inherently elegant and eye-catching.

Incorporate Art and Accessories

Well-chosen and placed accessories can make all the difference when it comes to luxurious interior design. Present them in a way that indicates curation rather than mere decoration. Fine art and carefully-considered accessories are a sure-fire way to elevate the opulence of a space. Invest in artwork, sculptures, and decorative pieces that resonate with both you and your design concept. Arrange them thoughtfully, keeping in mind the principles of balance and proportion. Don’t forget: less can often be more in a luxury interior.

Remember that a luxurious interior design should be unique, eye catching, comfortable and more expensive than the average space. Allow your own tastes and preferences to guide the process, whilst working with an experienced interior designer who can help you achieve the desired level of opulence and refinement.
