How The Rich And Famous Design Their InteriorsWednesday, May 17, 2017
Living the luxury lifestyle of the rich and famous is something that most of us will never achieve. Even if you’re in the top one percent of earners, it’s unlikely that you’ll make more than £150,000 a year, which is a lot of money, but perhaps not enough to really live like a king or queen. To really have the sort of lifestyle you see on TV shows like Cribs, you need to be in the top 0.1 percent, which is incredibly hard to achieve. With that said, there are plenty of luxury interior designers out there who are expert in transforming an interior into a luxurious space on a budget. In other words, you don’t need to have a million-dollar annual income to add a bit of spice and pizazz to your interior space. In fact, with the right combination of techniques, you could have that beautiful luxury home that you’ve always wanted - just minus the price tag. Here’s what to do.
Grab Some Custom Drapes
If you’ve ever looked at the interiors of the rich and famous, especially their bedrooms, you’ll have noticed that they’ve got a bit of a penchant for drapes. There’s a reason for this: drapes add a sense of luxury to practically any room, immediately lifting the appearance. They also help to keep prying eyes and the paparazzi from seeing what’s going on inside the home, which is good news for people who like their privacy. Try installing some thick drapes over the windows. If possible, add a rail that extends all the way around the windowed walls of the room. If you have a four-poster bed in the bedroom, you can add drapes to the bed itself for increased privacy.
When it comes to luxury interiors, lighting is perhaps one of the most important elements. Because celebrities are so obsessed with their appearance, they understand the importance of good light in a room. They want the light to flatter them, rather than make them appear washed out or unhealthy. The best kind of lighting, therefore, is that which fills the room from every direction. If the room has a lot of windows, this can be achieved through natural means. However, if a room lacks exposure to the outside world, then you’ll have to rely on different kinds of lighting. Try to use a combination of recessed lighting, spotlights and lamps. Having multiple light sources will mean that the room is lit up from all angles, preventing things like shadows on your face which could make you look tired.
Take A Leaf Out Of A Celebrity’s Book And Grab A Designer
Of course, the rich and famous rarely design their own interiors. Instead, they get somebody else to do it for them who actually knows what they’re doing. In places like Hollywood, the competition among designers is fierce, and people are constantly looking for the best ways to impress their clients. As a result, the standards are usually very high and the range of designers rather eclectic thanks to the quirky tastes of the celebs themselves.
