Luxury Design Ideas for Your Living Area

Luxury Design Ideas for Your Living Area

The living area is one of the areas in the home that gets the most foot traffic. We spend a lot of time here, relaxing, chatting, and just doing our thing.

There’s nothing quite like having a gorgeous, luxury living room. Here’s how you can create that unbeatable feeling of luxury yourself:

Decadent Colors

Decadent colors have always been associated with luxury and glamour. Deep red, purple, burgundy, and navy can all give off this feeling. Just beware that dark colors like this can also make your room look smaller. Consider adding a feature wall in one of these colors and then keeping the rest of the room light and airy if space is an issue.

Metallic Accents

Metallic accents can add that luxury touch, but you need to make sure they don’t look too polished and perfect. If they do, they’ll look more like you’re trying too hard. Go for distressed metallics if you can. You can add in metallics in the form of cushions, hardware, vases, and ornaments. You could even use a paint for the same effect. Don’t be afraid to mix different tones either!

Quirky Accessories

Accessories with something special about them really help to make a room pop. You could give our living area a kooky look by adding gemstone globes, for instance. It’s all down to personal preference and what you deem to be quirky. You can even add a unique look by using feature walls. I like to create feature walls out of different shaped photo frames and artwork.

Comfortable, Layered Furniture

The furniture in any luxury living area should be comfortable. Nothing says luxury like a big, cosy sofa or chair. However, layering it up is another way to give that look. Add throws and lots of cushions to get the same effect. Mix up your style of cushion too, for a unique look. Sometimes, matching everything can look boring.


This a rule you should take on board for all of your future projects: incorporate lots of texture into your decor. This adds depth and luxury to any design. You want people to be intrigued by the textures, and make them feel inclined to stroke and touch things as they look around. You can add in textures with your floors, rugs, lamps, accessories, and more.

Natural Materials

Natural materials can feel way more luxurious than manmade materials. Having things like slate floors and distressed wooden tables can look amazing. It won’t look too flashy; you’ll get an understated look that just gives the feeling of luxury and glamour.

The key to this sort of design is to make sure you’re not trying too hard. If you try too hard to make it look luxurious, it can end up looking cheap and tacky. Remember to keep things subtle and demure, as all real luxurious homes would.

Do you have any tips for luxury decor that you would like to share? We’d love to hear it in the comments. Happy decorating, and we’ll see you next time!
