  1. Add a touch of glamour: By incorporating accents in gold into your décor, you will add a touch of glamour and elegance to any space. And it doesn’t need to be overtly obvious: look to bring in hints of this shiny hue by incorporating gold-finished accessories, such as picture frames, mirrors, or decorative objects, to elevate the sophistication of your living room décor.
  2. Mix Textures: Layer different textures such as velvet, fur, and metallics to add depth and visual interest to your space. Mixing textures adds dimension and creates a luxe, layered look that feels inviting and sophisticated.
  3. Grand entrance: Make a lasting impression with a grand entrance that sets the tone for the rest of your home. Paint the front door and door frame in a bold colour like dark blue or charcoal grey, install a statement outdoor light fixture, and make sure your pathway and verges are spotless. Add a decorative console table or hang a large mirror to create a welcoming and elegant entryway.
  4. Back splash: A quick upgrade for your kitchen or bathroom is a stylish back splash that adds texture and visual appeal. Whether you choose tile, stone, or glass, a back splash instantly elevates the look of your space and adds a touch of luxury.
  5. Elevate your bathroom: Coordinate your bathroom accessories such as towels, soap dispensers, and storage containers to create a cohesive and polished look. Choose high-quality materials and finishes for a luxurious feel. Consider a floor-standing plant and a jute basket of rolled towels or a ladder for towels.
  6. New hardware: Finishing touches are a great way to make your home look expensive. Think door handles, drawer pulls, light switches, taps and sockets. These elements are often overlooked, but they can pull an entire scheme together. Choose finishes like brushed nickel or matte black for a contemporary touch.
  7. Wallpaper: Add drama and personality to your walls with wallpaper in bold but elegant patterns or subtle textures. Wallpaper is a cost-effective way to create a statement wall or add interest to a room.
