You will agree that the perfect modern home should be elegant, yet comfortable, eclectic, and yet consistent. You may think that you need to buy so many things and spend a fortune on furniture and home accessories to make your Jupiter architects look great. It’s not so much about how many items you invest in, but the quality of those few items that will make a real statement in your home. There are certain items -specifically furniture pieces – that will achieve that. It’s what we call the “Must Have Luxury Furniture in Every Modern House”.
The key is to mix styles and items together – new and old, classic and contemporary – in a way that the value of the result is much higher than the value of every item together. The result? Pure luxury!
You probably have a few furniture items and home accessories that you bought years ago and that look boring and outdated. Maybe you have a few old pieces you inherited or were given to you by friends and family. Don’t throw them away! Learn how to combine them with some new pieces, and create a luxury space for yourself and your family to enjoy and relax.
For the living room, a must have is a contemporary chrome floor lamp. I would recommend a replica of the original 1960’s Arc lamp. This lamp will bring a glam retro look, ideal in our modern homes. A luxury item, without the price tag!
What happens if you have an old sofa? Sofas are expensive, so spend money wisely. You’re better off covering it with a casual throw or a faux-fur blanket, and investing in a glamorous chaise longue or Louis XV style chair. That way you will have more place for seating, and you will acquire a real pearl!
Another way to “glam up” your living room is adding a chandelier and a mirror. A glass cut chandelier with droplets always look great, especially if you have high ceilings. Nowadays they are available in many colours, so you can go for a classic clear or black one, but if you’re not afraid of colour, a bright red chandelier is a great choice. When it comes to mirrors, you’re spoiled for choice: a gold Baroque mirror, a black carved one… Don’t be scared to go over the top. Mirrors add depth and light, and always a great option to dress a naked wall! Place it over a console table, or invest in an over-mantle mirror if you have a fireplace. Mirrors look great, and are so much more affordable than any piece of art!
When it comes to furnishing bedrooms, the must have piece is a fabulous bed. The Versailles style beds or the French Chateau ones are more popular than ever, and add that unmistakably French luxury touch that you were craving for long. If your budget is limited, a really good alternative to buying a complete bed frame is to buy an affordable divan bed, and glam it up with a Rococo headboard.
If you’re still within budget, spoil yourself and get two luxurious Venetian bedside tables. Moreover, if you don’t mind going over-budget, don’t hesitate to buy a silver embossed console table. It would look great in the hall, the living room, or even the bedroom. Some console tables are very versatile, and can be used as dressing tables – a must have in every woman’s bedroom. If you choose one that can be used either way, place it in your bedroom, compliment it with a beautiful silver Rococo mirror, and spend some time making sure you look as great as your house!
