Stepping into someone’s home is like reading a chapter of their autobiography; home decor is a reflection of the homeowner’s personality, tastes, and preferences. Every painting, every throw pillow, every piece of furniture … you can be sure that each element was carefully selected as part of larger ecosystem.
So, when people set foot inside your home, what does your home decor say about you? Are you feeling like you might need a boost in the furniture department?
For many, adding a dash of luxury to their home is a faraway dream, accompanied by an endless stream of looming questions: Where do we begin? How can we integrate key pieces into our existing setup? How do I stay on a budget?
The good news is, you don’t have to answer those questions all on your own. Having an interior designer by your side is the best way to navigate the world of home decor and high end furniture, but if you’re not quite there yet, here is some design inspiration for sprucing up every room in the house while staying on your budget.
If your living room isn’t in tip top shape, can you really call it living? It’s the ultimate versatile space: from ushering guests in for an aperitif after a delicious meal to leafing through a glossy magazine on a lazy Sunday, the living room is often the center of the home.
Comfort should always be top of mind when it comes to designing this space, so you’re going to need the perfect sofa. The Carver is a decor chameleon, in a shade of cream that is sure to integrate seamlessly with your existing furnishings. Its plush cushions are perfect for lounging and chatting in style, while its stainless steel feet provide a touch of mod.
Is there any better place for a conversation piece than in your living room? The Melange Natural Beauty credenza is the chevroned beauty you’ve been looking for. Its smooth, modern mixed-wood face and brushed pewter accents are the perfect balance between eye-catching and subdued. Plus, its impressive capacity for storage means you can tuck any odds and ends away so the focus remains on this pièce de resistance.
Speaking of entertaining, why not elevate your hosting experience with a bar cart? This piece by Valentine is true luxury eye candy, making expert use of modern angles balanced with a vintage gold-leaf finish.
Cheers to meals among friends and family! The dining room is an ideal place to revel in life’s simple pleasures, from good company to great food.
If you’re a dinner party super host, the ten-seater Loggia double dining table is for you. Boasting two 22-inch leaves, this mealtime masterpiece is the perfect blend of classic and modern, with its dark wooden top supported by a duo of intricate bronze-finish bases.
A quickly-emerging trend is seeing home decorators swapping individual dining chairs for benches, creating an even more intimate experience between guests. The Laguna bench sits at the intersection between airy beach house and swanky hotel lobby, with its stainless steel-accented white base and playfully geometric upholstery. Meanwhile, the Pembrook features a high back and tufted detailing for a more executive feel.
The bedroom is so much more than a snooze zone. It’s where we go to relax, recharge, and simply be. A hint of posh is the perfect way to turn any bedroom into a beacon of zen, and it all starts with the bed itself.
If you’re a big reader, you’ll love the Panache‘s plush headboard. Perfect for propping up and lulling yourself to sleep with a good book, this classic cream-colored piece is outfitted with luxurious blended linen. We love the delicate studding on either side of the headboard.
Four-poster models are also making quite a splash in the world of designer bedrooms. Look no further than the Palma canopy bed to understand why! This piece takes modern industrial elegance to a whole new level: its rich wood frame is perfectly accented by rustic steel brackets, with refreshingly minimalistic upholstery rounding out the look.
Before you slip into sleep, you’ll need a place to stow the day’s outfit – and grab a pair of pajamas. The Greer dresser couples clean, classic lines with exceptionally unique accents that are endlessly customizable: the front of each drawer can be outfitted with wood, mirror, or fabric, and the studs around the drawer’s edge comes in a variety of patterns.
Bear in mind that these are just a handful of ways for you to elevate your home decor – we’ve barely scratched the surface of the thousands of customizable options at your fingertips!
