Wish List: Luxe Living Rooms

A living room that is both practical and aesthetically beautiful will bring you a great deal of pleasure. This is one of the most important spaces within your home. It is where you unwind with family, curl up with a book after a busy day and share a glass of wine with friends. Bernie shares some tips on how to create a luxe living room.

  1. Textures: Create opulence by featuring lots of beautiful textures in your lounge room such as a velvet armchair, silk and beaded cushions and a soft cashmere throw rug.
  2. Sculpture: A stunning sculptural piece such as a lamp or oversized chair not only looks fantastic but helps to create a sense of proportion in a large lounge room.
  3. Wall Feature: A striking wall feature makes a bold statement in a room and is a wonderful visual focal point.
  4. Art: There is no need to spend thousands of dollars on new artwork, you can simply get creative and reframe existing paintings. For an instance, an oil painting framed in mirrored mosaic tiles gives it a contemporary touch.
  5. Floor Cushions: Create an inviting den by using comfortable floor cushions in a range of textures. Silks and velvets in a neutral tone evoke a calming mood.
