Moving into a new apartment is always exciting, but when you have chosen to move into a brand new one, newly built and no one has lived in before, it’s even more special. In this case, you will have carte blanche to do whatever you want in terms of decor, and you won’t have to deal with anything the previous owners left behind.
If you find yourself in this situation, it can feel overwhelming. There’s so much to choose; how can you be sure you’re making the right decisions and that you’ll end up with the luxurious look in your new apartment that you opted for? It can be hard, but read on to discover some useful information that will help you make the correct decisions.
Focus On The Color Scheme
If you want to achieve a luxurious look in your new apartment, the color scheme is super important, and you’ll want to get this right first of all. Once you do, everything else will fall into place with that color scheme to give you a cohesive and beautiful final result.
When it comes to luxury, opting for neutral tones like grey, beige, and cream is a good idea. These are sophisticated and timeless, so you can easily use them in an apartment that exudes modernity as a new one will. You’re free to add any additional pops of color you might want through your accessories, such as art on the walls, rugs, or ornaments.
It’s a good idea to keep the color palette consistent throughout the apartment to help ensure the first-rate look is in every room and to show that you have intentionally designed the space.
Add Texture And Layers
When you add texture and layers to your apartment’s decor, you’ll give the feeling of luxury as well as comfort and coziness. It’s not always easy to combine these two factors, but it should be done when you can. After all, you not only need to look at your beautiful surroundings, but you need to be able to live in them as well.
Texture can be achieved through rugs and throws, for example, or cushions and pillows. You might opt for a couch that has a textured surface, or maybe your art will be the texture you include in your home. Use different materials, like silk, cotton, faux fur, and velvet, to draw the eye and offer something stunning and luxurious in your home.
Think About Your Lighting
The lighting in your brand new apartment has to be carefully thought out if you want to make your space look luxurious. When you have the right lighting in place, it can truly enhance the mood of an entire room or home.
The best thing is to mix both overhead and ambient lighting so you can change the look or mood as you see fit. Sometimes you’ll want more light and sometimes less, and if you have control over this (taking into account natural light as well), you’ll find it’s easier to create a space that is both luxurious and functional.XOXO,
