You only build your dream home once. And why not go all in and build a luxury two-story home. It all starts with a vision to turn that blank canvas into something that feels like your new home. But sometimes, starting is the hardest.
As well as flicking through magazines, surfing home décor blogs and letting your imagination take over, here’s a list of this year’s top luxurious home design trends.
Forget cookie-cutter homes. Go custom, with a touch of luxury
Consider these features when working with your custom designer.
- Neutral – saturated colours
Yep, you’re probably familiar with Instagram’s saturation filter. It doesn’t just make pictures look pretty. Those mustardy, greenery, warm nude tones are hot this year. Don’t be afraid to use earthy shades in your décor.
- Brass, chrome & silver
Metal is in, every form of it. Everything good always comes around again. Pick up any home magazine and you’re bound to see metal lamps, lighting solutions, and coffee tables. Metal is sleek and sheek.
- Go naturale
Interior designs are also becoming warmer, with natural materials. Think terracotta, cork, and imperfect timber.
While minimal designs aren’t necessarily a 2017 trend, they’re still as popular as ever. As our lives get busier, the desire for simple, uncluttered living grows. This includes multi-purposes spaces – like island kitchen tables doubling as your workstation.
- Furniture as art
We tend to think of furniture as something we use. And while this is usually the case, this year things are changing. Walk into a modern, luxury home and you’ll see a unique chair or bench that’s strategically placed there, as art. Like a beautiful painting can command a room, so can that one-of-a-kind piece of furniture.
- Holiday living
While it’s not always possible to go on a holiday, you can design your home like you’re on one. You know that big, luxury bath you once enjoyed in your Bali villa? Why not add it into your own home. Decorate your home with your favourite culture or country in mind.
As our understanding of our role in the environment, so does our passion for creating sustainably spaces to live in. This can include integrating solar power, water tanks, and emerging eco-technology. During the design, consider factors like opening up your home and maximise the use of natural light. Your custom home design team will be able to guide you with this.
