Interior Trends Your Luxury Home Can’t Live Without

Each year, interior designers create a list of lamps, carpets, draperies and other furniture elements that follow the latest design and décor trends. And that’s good -we’ve done it ourselves:

These trends are usually easy to implement and can be applied to everyone’s home. It’s their purpose to be accessible, while giving your home a modern, stylish feel. However, if it’s exclusivity you are looking for, then listen up.

From lavish living spaces to opulence in extreme, below are some of the top features we’ve been finding in modern luxury homes this year.

  1. Greenery
  2. This is a trend that has been rising for a while now, with more and more people filling their homes with foliage in a bid to counteract our increasingly urban lives. And we’re not just talking about houseplants. Our need to reconnect with nature is spilling over into everything from wallpaper prints to fabric patterns, as well upholstery in plush velvet in eye-catching shades of forest green, pine and emerald.

    One of the most dramatic interior design elements to emerge over the past decade is the living wall. Filled with live plants, the vertical presentation creates a unique look, but is best suited to a luxury home.

  3. Wallpaper
  4. No, we’re not talking about the ‘80’s Waverly patterns that once dominated many households. We’re talking about a room that isn’t just defined by its four walls; rather the ceiling is used as a fifth. Think retro patterns and graphic abstractions. Think black, gold, and colourful prints. If it’s too much, then it’s probably just enough.

    And that’s not the end of it. 3D Wall Design are three-dimensional ceramic surfaces with a refined sculptural and decorative effect, rich in dramatic shadows that bring large-scale walls to life with elegant facets and design textures.

  5. Spa Bathrooms
  6. Admittedly, when has anyone not wanted to feel like their bathroom resembles a fancy hotel spa? But if Pinterest is anything to go by, people now want it more than ever.

    A well-equipped bathroom should rival a professional spa, complete with walk-in shower, steam room, soaking tub, and heated floors. Skylights or windows with a view are a huge plus.

    And what could be more luxurious than marble to decorate this space? Moving back to natural elements, luxury homes are filling their lavatories with marble – from top to bottom. The more marble you have, the more spa-like your bathroom becomes. Add to this the absolute stately feel of dark woods and stone textures, and your bathroom becomes the envy of the state.
