Understanding luxury living room design

In order to get a sense of what luxury living room design actually is, it helps to confirm what we mean when we say ‘luxury’ in general. It’s a descriptor that’s often associated with particular comfort, elegance or expensiveness.

So, what does luxury mean when it comes to living room design?

If we take the above definition of what ‘luxury’ is and apply it to living rooms, what we’re looking at in a general sense is a living room that offers a great sense of comfort, an elegant look and feel and high quality touches that complete the space. Let’s break it down further…

What different factors contribute to a luxury living room?

Quality materials

Whether you’re choosing a fabric to reupholster an old chair and give it a fresh new look or you’re selecting the perfect rug for your living room, it’s important to choose high-quality materials that look beautiful and are built to last if you’re curating your ultimate luxury living room.

Comfortable furniture

As we touched on previously, a big element of ‘luxury’ as a whole is the sense of comfort that something brings you. The living room (perhaps second only to bedrooms) is the perfect place to strive for comfort as it’s the place we often return to at the end of a long day to unwind and recuperate. The more comfortable you’re able to be in your living room, the more relaxed you’ll be which is vital when it comes to striking a happy home life. So, we’d suggest that when it comes to choosing any furniture that you may find yourself sinking into or resting on, opt for something that both supports your body and soothes it. For example, big squishy sofas perfect for curling up with a book on and foot rests with extra padding.

Striking artwork

Make room for artwork that inspires you on the walls of your living room. Celebrating artwork that inspires you is a great way of introducing some elegance into the design and also encouraging you to want to spend time there.

A complementary colour palette

If you’re looking to create a luxurious atmosphere in your living room, you’ll want to take some time to decide on a colour scheme that works throughout the entire space. Seek plenty of inspiration for colour palettes that have colours that work seamlessly alongside each other. This will ensure that your living room feels like a cohesive, relaxing space that’s perfect for luxuriating in.
