The idea of luxury interior design varies from one homeowner to another, largely depending on personal taste and preferences. Be that as it may, all luxury homes revolve around creating elements that offer quality, comfort, and sophistication. It’s the high-end touches that make a luxury home so appealing and desirable, after all. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to pamper themselves with such features? Whether you’re remodeling a large home or moving into an unfurnished one, there are plenty of home decor ideas that can bring out the luxury of your living spaces. 

1. Temporary Wallpaper for Visual Interest

With homeowners often on the lookout to create new living spaces, adhesive wallpaper is becoming all the rage. It serves as the ideal solution for those wanting to experiment with new colors or patterns for their homes, or those trying to elevate an otherwise plain room. What’s best about temporary wallpaper is that you can change it up whenever you wish. It is easier to remove or replace than traditional wallpaper. And with the variety of options available, you are sure to find one that accentuates your luxury home.

Consider picking lighter hues and subtle patterns for your home office or a relatively small room. As for the master bedroom, for instance, you can make a statement with a wallpaper mural.

2. High-End Materials for a Glamorous Touch 

Nothing spells luxury quite like high-end materials. These can include granite or marble countertops, stone or hardwood floors, as well as stainless steel household appliances. A crème de la crème kitchen, for instance, can also feature island sinks, double ovens, and heating drawers.

Other must-haves for fancy houses are high-end fittings and fixtures — think luxurious bathrooms with soaking bathtubs, spa-inspired vanities, and rain showerheads. Besides their undeniable aesthetic appeal, high-quality materials are also known to last a lifetime, provided they are well-maintained. Spa-inspired bathrooms, for example, can recreate the ambiance of a luxurious resort. As long as the budget permits, the possibilities are virtually endless. It’s also worth mentioning that top-of-the-line materials boost the value of your home, making them a worthwhile investment.

3. Natural Colors for an Inviting Ambience

Aim to adopt natural tones as part of your luxury home plans. A light shade of beige or cream, for instance, can create a welcoming atmosphere. Coupled with wood tones throughout the space, it is also a great alternative to conventional white paint. Neutral beige, in particular, is a common choice for luxury homes.

Designing a fancy living space often revolves around creating a reposeful ambiance, and beige plays its part beautifully. For added richness, consider completing the five-star look with hardwood floors, faux-leather sofas, and accents in dark wood. And if beige isn’t exactly your cup of tea, shades of gray with accents in black can lend a more modern luxurious aesthetic.

4. Art Pieces That Make a Statement

A statement art piece can be the cherry on top of a nice big house. However, it is important not to go overboard with this design choice. Instead of filling every wall with mediocre pieces of art, aim for one large piece to serve as a focal point. You also can’t go wrong with a selection of carefully curated artwork that resonates with your sensibilities — if you have the extra space. That being said, make sure to spread out the pieces just enough for each one to enjoy its fair share of attention. And to achieve the art gallery effect, consider shining accent lights on the artwork to bring focus to them.

Displaying one exquisite piece of art is often better than several mediocre ones.

5. Fancy Lighting for Added Elegance

One element that plays a major role in luxury homes — or any kind of home, for that matter — is lighting. Recessed lighting along a stairway, for instance, can exude high-end modernity while chandeliers tend to create a more lavish aesthetic.

Should you be planning a home remodel, consider upgrading the lighting you have with top-of-the-line fixtures. You can also create an inviting atmosphere with ambient lightings such as wall sconces, floor lamps, and table lamps. If it plays well into the interior design, pair these with a crystal chandelier for instant drama.

6. Loft Conversion… Because Why Not?

Chances are your large house has a room that you barely ever use. If that’s the case, you can't go wrong with turning it into a stylish loft. A loft conversion as part of a luxury house plan is proven to raise the resale value of your home. It is also an excellent idea if you actually need the extra space. For instance, a loft can serve as a lounge area for reading books, watching a movie, or perhaps taking an afternoon siesta. Having said that, a loft conversion can present the perfect solution to transforming an idle space into one you can actually use — allowing you to make the most of your big modern house.

Converting an idle room into a stylish loft allows you to use your luxury home to its full potential.

7. Indoor Plants for a Splash of Color

Another way to make your home appear more luxurious is by incorporating nature through an indoor garden. Houseplants are known to offer a number of benefits to a living space. These include adding a splash of color, purifying the indoor air, bringing life to a room, and enhancing the overall mood. When it comes to varieties for indoor growth, the options are almost endless. Try decorating your space with a selection of choices including kokedama, tropical plants, as well as open terrariums. Succulents and acacia palm trees are also popular for modern luxury homes.

8. Minimalist Touches for an Open Space

It’s hard to imagine a luxury home without large amounts of space. However, it’s easy to clutter that space with items that don’t really serve a purpose. As such, minimalism is the way to go here. Keep furnishings at a minimum to achieve an elegant, uncluttered, and open space. You can also make a large room appear even larger by adding mirrors to maximize indoor light — especially when paired with a neutral color palette. In the meantime, make sure you have enough storage space for personal belongings such as shoes, hats, and anything else you wouldn’t want to leave around.

9. Layered Fabrics for a Lavish Look

Incorporating the right selection of fabrics into your interior design can add dimension and a unique texture to your luxury home. You can add touches of subtle opulence by layering fabrics throughout the living spaces. This includes draping a throw blanket over the sofa, placing lush area rugs here and there, and decorating your bed like that of a five-star hotel. Other than the aesthetic appeal, well-curated fabrics are also known to make a home appear more warm and welcoming — rather than just a large, cold space.

Bonus Idea: Large Saltwater Aquarium for Showing Off

Consider making your big beautiful house even more beautiful with a saltwater aquarium. Why go for the saltwater type? It’s known for being more expensive to install and maintain than freshwater varieties, making it a great way to show off. A room divider aquarium design, for instance, can be a great conversation starter. And it goes without saying that the fascinating nature of saltwater fish tanks adds a great deal of visual interest to just about any space.

Much like saltwater aquariums, there are many ways to bring out the luxury of your fancy house. And you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to high-end design ideas.

Incorporating a large aquarium into your home’s architecture is a mark of luxury..
