Many Park City homes are luxurious inside and outside. While the majestic landscape and mountainous backdrop provide the majority of the “wow” factor, well-appointed decorative elements inside and outside the home can take it to the next level. Luxury home decor can fall into different styles, such as modern, elegant, and classic. Each category offers decor elements that can add the right personality to your home.
Take advantage of the different types of spaces your home has to offer. For example, where is the best lighting in the house? Where do you envision guests spending the most amount of time? What are specific areas of your home used for? For example, a home office, game room, movie theater, sunroom, etc.
There are many ways to utilize the space in your home while maintaining a luxurious level of decorum. Consider the following tips for creating a luxury space that can be enjoyed year-round for years.
Art – There are several types of art that can be used in luxury homes. To elevate your art choices select contrasting colors for frames and other decorative elements. Depending upon your style you can choose from Classical. Abstract, or Modern.
Color – The color of your home will determine the overall mood and energy of the rooms. You can have several moods throughout the house by painting different rooms in different colors. Typically rooms that are good candidates to be painted a different color than the rest of the home are the dining room, bathrooms, master bedroom, kid’s bedrooms, and the library/reading room.
Accent Pieces- Well-placed accent pieces can take your home to the next level. Accent pieces are little pieces of furniture that fill a corner or wall and can tie a room together. Accent pieces are often one of those details you don’t notice immediately, but if they were removed from the room, the room would not look as put together.
Pillows, Linens & Throws- These accents are worth every penny. You can spend all the money in the world on a lovely couch or bed, but without suitable pillows, linens, and throw blankets, your furniture will never feel or look complete.
Rugs- Beautiful hardwood and tile floors can be perfectly complemented with the right area rug. Carpets not only add warmth to a room but also provide a baseline color scheme to match furniture and other accent pieces with.
Lighting Fixtures and Lamps- Lighting is arguably one of the most crucial details to get correct when decorating your home. You don’t want your home to feel dark and dreary, and you certainly don’t want it to feel like a Hollywood stage. The key to lighting is ensuring you understand the different types of light. Your home may have a lot of natural light, which will make your home feel bright and energized. Can lighting is suitable for living areas and kitchens. Lamps and wall sconces are good accessories that can light up rooms and hallways and complement can/ceiling lights.
Table & Counter Decor- An elegant dining room table can really set the tone for the entire house. Likewise, a striking countertop in the kitchen can make the kitchen the focal point of the home. Tall and well-crafted cabinets can bring the kitchen to a whole other level, especially if you nail the cabinet knobs, pulls, hinges, and faucets.
Landscaping/Outside- Hiring a professional landscaper to bring your outdoor living to life is money well spent. Porches, gardens, patio furniture, and pools can all be complicated landscaping details that need the vision of a professional. Investing in your outdoor living space is worth the investment when you are surrounded by so much beauty in Park City!
