Sight seems like the obvious and most important sense in designing a room but we always find one thing that’s overlooked: The lighting! Having the right lighting in a space can really set the atmosphere and give your space that luxury feel. We also understand that not everyone has the privilege of having good natural lighting in their home due to awkward spacing and inconsiderate architects (smile), but whether its artificial or natural, this could make a big difference to your space! From hanging pendant lights to create a grand space in the hallway or spot lights within the kitchen, lighting is one of the best features you could find in someone’s home (if it’s done right).
We love a light that makes a statement in a room which draws the eye in the direction that needs it most. Have a neglected corner? Add a small table and a statement light like the Loop Brass Light by Oliver Bonas. This is bound to turn heads!
Aside from having double (or triple) glazed windows, how can sound make a space more luxurious? Well… the crisp sound of music from really great speakers can really make a party. We believe sound has a massive part to play within a home whether its maxed out on volume 60 or a soft jazz melody playing while you cook some tasty pasta!
Bringing the vibes to your home with sound is a great way of styling! Music can easily boost the mood of your space and anyone else who enters it!
Not really into the new techy-stuff, and want something vintage? Check out the Gramophone! Want a speaker that you can talk to? Try the Whyd speaker and of course the speakers that always wins in luxury is Bang and Olufsen. Try a style that suits you.
When we think of smells, we can automatically relate it to a clear memory. We might not know exactly where it’s from but we remember how it made us feel! We’ve come to understand that whether its body + hand wash fragrances in your bathroom or refreshing candles in the hallway, the more luxurious brands really make a difference to our mood! Good quality fragrances help create an atmosphere as well as gorgeous scented memories so don’t be afraid to splurge a little.
Also think about the cleaning products you use in your home. One of our favourite brands is Method because not only does it have an organic fresh smell, it actually is organic!
(This is such a great quote written by Philosopher Juhani Pallasma.)
Touch is also a very dominant sense as it contributes to the overall luxury experience of a space. The emotional feeling of a home starts with the first physical interaction of walking through the door. Did you use the brass door knocker or turn the cast iron door knob when you came in? Did you pull back the double stitched linen curtains and feel how heavy or silky they were?
What we are saying is that when it comes to touch and luxury, you notice the difference between something of high quality and low quality. That difference usually is texture + weight. Good quality items are usually heavier as they are made with more hard-wearing materials (most of the time). And the same goes for fabric, wallpaper, upholstery, etc…You just know when you touch it right?? Especially the touch of cold stonework when resting your arms (cocktail in hand) on a hot summers day.
