Decadent means rich and luxurious in an understated yet elegant way. When it comes to interior designing, it’s a definite goal to make your interior designs the height of decadent and chic. It can be a pretty challenging task to accomplish because there are a lot of constraints that come with this term. So without further ado, let’s look at 5 ways you can make your spaces look highly decadent.
1. A rich color scheme
It’s usually recommended to stay away from rich colors and textures during renovation because the smallness of the space can make the color scheme seem overwhelming. But when you’re going for the decadent aesthetic, you definitely have to choose a rich color scheme. The chocolate brown material palate in this interior design speaks volumes about how you can bring in an understated decadence in your homes if you choose the right materials and textures.
2. Go for glam
In order to properly emulate the decadent look, you’ll have to go for broke with the glamorous aspect of the whole design. This means that the ambiance has to be dimly lit, moody and understated enough to accommodate the color scheme and material palate. The overall effect has to be absolutely mesmerizing.
3. Adding personal touches
You have to retain that understated ambiance even in spaces that require a personal touch. You simply have to carry some of that outward sophistication in the private parts of the home to get a wholesome feel throughout your interior design. Take this interior design for example; it uses glamorous materials and recessed lighting to create a moody yet stylish atmosphere.
4. Elegant luxury
It can be pretty hard to present an elegant front when you’re working with rich colors. It needs a specially nuanced eye to make the spaces seem chic instead of historic. This image shows the perfect combination of rich yet luxurious at the same time. The woodwork looks absolutely gorgeous against the stylish modern material palate.
5. Touches of trendy
Obviously you need to incorporate touches of trendy in order to make your space appeal to the contemporary senses. You can do so by adding small parts of high gloss textures and looking mirror cutwork throughout the space.
