Add Luxe Layers
Using a mix of materials, textures, and tones always gives a space a more custom look and appears more thought out. Mix materials such as glass, wood, and chrome and layered textiles, pillows, and rugs. The originality always feels luxurious and timeless.
Include black and white photography
This always looks chic. There is something endlessly cool about black and white photographs. I have collected many images of interesting buildings, doors, water scenes, trees, people. To me they fit every space and never get tired.
Harsh, fluorescent lighting can make even the nicest furniture and surroundings appear dismal. Good lighting on the other hand bathes furnishing in better light and can make lesser-quality pieces look better. Look for warmer rather than cooler lighting, which tends to give off a more golden glow. Whenever possible, install dimmers or use three-way bulbs so that you can adjust the degree of lighting.
Keep it clutter-free
While layers add dimension to a space, the quickest way to more style and sophistication is to take a few pieces away to let the room breathe. An overstuffed space looks tired, where a streamlined, clean space appears fresh.
Add some Vignettes
A big vignette is a grouping of objects, like a still life, that can add form and style to an empty area or space and instead create a unique focal point. Well-designed spaces always have featured vignettes. A good vignette can make a room come alive. Whether it’s a well curated coffee table, or a vignette on a bar cart, shelving or an entryway console, it is a sure way to add style, personality, and sophistication to a specific space.
