Designing Clichés To Avoid At Any Cost

1- Hanging Art the Wrong Way.

Art hung the wrong way on a wall is like a character in a movie wearing a really bad costume. It doesn’t ruin your experience, but it’s just terribly distracting.

Whilst most generally agree that art should be hung at eye-level, our designers stress that this doesn’t apply in every case. “Yes, the art should be at eye level, but not if your ceilings are unusually low or high.” explains Zylus designer Gale. “If the wall were cut up vertically into four sections, think of the art being in the third quadrant if the ceiling is 8-10ft. high. For exceedingly high ceiling a vertical work is a perfect complement to tall walls.”

If it’s a collection of art then you need to treat the whole collection as one piece.

Dream to Done: Make Your Home Look Luxurious This Spring

Dream to Done: Make Your Home Look Luxurious This Spring

 

Spring is almost here, and everyone is in hype for the big spring cleaning. However, besides getting rid of the things that you don’t need anymore, you can spruce up your home’s appearance a bit. And what a better way than giving it a more luxurious look that will make the hot weather days more enjoyable and beautiful. So, let’s see what you can do with your home to make it look fabulous.

 

Crown molding

Architectural details are usually associated with upscale homes, and there is no better way to introduce one than crown molding. Crown molding bridges the gap between the walls of a room and a ceiling which is a perfect finishing touch to make your home look traditional and elegant. Even though this is mostly associated with luxury homes, it is actually inexpensive to install. What is more, you can do it yourself and be fully proud of your home. However, you should make sure to remember such decorative pieces work best in larger rooms, while you can choose a simpler crown molding style for some other smaller rooms in your home.

 

Big pieces of art

If you’ve ever been to a luxurious hotel or visited some old castles abroad, you have probably noticed that they are adorned with oversized paintings, statues and other pieces of art. The reason behind this being that larger art pieces make a statement and leave a long-lasting impact. That's why, if you want to make your home look rich, you should definitely opt for abstract paintings of your choice and hang them on the wall facing your sofa in the living room or your bed in bedroom. However, you should stay away from pictorial scenes and opt for large geometric shapes or floral patterns as they will fit better into your interior design.

 

Classy accessories

You can introduce these wherever you wish or can. You can accessorize your bedroom with a large mirror with a golden frame. Include some lamps made of high-end materials, such as brass, crystal or marble in your living room. Also, you can opt for marble countertop for your kitchen island or introduce a few smaller pieces of furniture made of solid wood around the house. What is more, you can put open cabinets in your kitchen or vintage glass-door cabinets for your dining room so that you can display your classy and elegant Wedgwood china, for example. The possibilities are endless, as long as you pick the accessories made of glass, crystal, solid wood and a few pieces with metallic finishes. Just make sure not to overdo it, so your home doesn’t look tacky instead of luxurious.

 

Gold spray paint

Another way to introduce a bit of glamour into your home is by using gold spray paint. This doesn’t cost much, but it can make your home look as if a celebrity lives there. You don’t even have to be particularly talented, you can simply add a coat of gold spray paint to your ordinary picture frames, vases, pots, and trays, and it will instantly give each room an elegant makeover. However, if you wish to add even more elegance and glamour, you can easily repaint your shelves, mirror frames and some of the chairs. Gold is the ultimate sign of luxury, so why not add a few golden touches here and there.

 

Fresh flowers

Since spring is around the corner and there are plenty of flowers blooming, you should add them to your home. Moreover, fresh flowers are the best ways to instantly uplift your home’s appeal and breathe life into it. If you want to keep it simple, you can just pick a few bouquets of your favorite flowers yourself and place them in vases in your living room, bathroom, dining room and bedroom. But, if you want more luxury, you can easily spend a little extra on some big bouquets in strong deep colors. If you do opt for this option, just make sure to limit yourself on a big bouquet on your coffee table or dining room table.

 

Balance lighting

A home with just one lighting fixture per room will look dark and neglected. And that’s not the look you’re trying go for. So, instead of leaving your rooms with just one overhead lighting fixture that makes it look sterile, rather opt for layers of lighting solutions. Apart from the main light source, incorporate a few lamps in each room. You can either go for big lamps with metallic finishes, smaller ones with crystal bases or even pendant and wall lighting fixtures near the wall art or other architectural detail. Plus, don’t forget to let enough natural light inside.

 

With these six tips, you can easily elevate your home’s interior and atmosphere and make it look like a luxurious hotel. This spring brings many trends in interior design, so try to incorporate some of them when giving your home a springtime touch-up.
