I was recently asked to write an article on my predictions for
Luxury Interior Design Trends in 2017
They were Jewels tones, Retreat rooms & Custom upholstery.
I’m looking forward to using lots of lush jewel tones, particularly velvets in both decoration
& custom upholstery.
As for a retreat room, I’m fortunate to have the option of city living during the week
& then weekends in the country, so quite happy with my country retreat – no custom room required!
In particular emerald green and ruby red.
Both of these colours work perfectly with navy blue and nothing says luxury like navy.
Emerald and ruby in velvet make for perfect cushions, particularly 60 x 60cm as a statement on a sofa or chair.
Walls painted in these luxe colours instantly transform a room taking it to the next level of sophistication.
Wallpaper in jewel tones will add an overall feel of sheer opulence to any room,
but I love to see this mainly in a bedroom & dining room.
A room specifically for mediation, reading or a place you can go to completely unwind.
These rooms will be an added luxury when you come home from a hard day’s work
and don’t want the constant chatter from the television.
They don’t need to be a particularly large room but they do need to be purpose specific.
These rooms should be decorated in tranquil colours either light or dark,
depending on the rooms purpose and definitely not a room to dry the washing in!
With so much of our lives being disposable nowadays, it’s a luxury to be able to revamp
a family heirloom or an older piece of furniture that you’ve acquired.
Custom detailed upholstery won’t date and adds a much welcomed design detail to any room.
A bedhead, ottoman or dining chair with button detailing always adds to a rooms luxury look & feel.
I don’t think a bedroom is dressed without a bedhead as it helps to balance out the vast expanse of the bed.
Until next time
