HOW TO CREATE AN ICONIC, SOPHISTICATED LIVING SPACE
Have you ever looked at a catalog showcasing a perfectly designed home and wanted to recreate it, but don’t even know where to begin?
Here, I will help alleviate the stress that goes into designing a luxurious space by breaking it down and giving you a tangible way to recreate this flawless home design – that just so happens to be created by one of my mentors – as well as provide links on how to get this look.
The design inspiration below brings the perfect balance of sexy sophistication and comfort by blending contemporary details with classic elements. Here’s the breakdown …
By using dark colors with luxurious finishes and textures, the eye progresses with untamed excitement from the black and white marbled wall to the sexy velvet bar stools, over to the sophisticated yet inviting couch, to the masculine wood coffee table, and all the way down to the grey and beige rug that softens up the entire living space with its curvy pattern.
The key here is to use dark colors to keep the space masculine, while incorporating soft, smooth, and velvety textures/patterns that allow the space to feel warm and comfortable, even with all of the sharp edges and masculine furniture. The wood surface of the coffee table and the thick sharp corners let the visitor know that a very powerful man resides in this space, while the circular art sculpture and rug remind guests that although the resident is powerful he’s also inviting, and he cares about your comfort and wants you to feel safe while you’re in his space.
What I love about this view of the space is how different the vibe is when the lavish bar isn’t in the background. From this vista, the living room shows the more comfortable, inviting perspective of the area, where the pattern of the rug pulls you in close, and encourages you to engage in conversation and relaxation. The dark walls in the bar area and the dark furniture pieces are complemented beautifully with the lighter flooring, fireplace, light fixtures, and the breathtaking amount of natural sunlight that flows into this space during daylight. The furniture is very masculine, while the textures and fabrics that accompany them are warm and inviting.
One of my favorite elements of this design is the attention-grabbing focal point of the chandelier. With the elements surrounding the chandelier being very dark and luxurious, this light fixture creates the feeling of elegant sophistication that demands your attention and is interesting enough to encourage the viewer to look further into the space. Choosing the ultimate focal point for my clients is important because it leaves a lasting impression. The goal here is to choose a focal point that’s bold, making it impossible to be bored while you’re in the space.
