When living in a high-end home, it can sometimes feel large, vast and impersonal. There’s so much space to fill, and you may not know what to fill it with. Adding your own taste and personality to the home rather than relying purely on a designer can help it feel like it’s truly your space. Here’s how to make a large property feel homier.
Hang art you love. One thing that can immediately create a feeling of home is the addition of artwork. Finding unique pieces of art at a sale or commissioning an artist you admire to paint or sculpt a custom piece for you will not only add interest to your home, but sentimental value as well. You can also commission a piece, to have a custom painting of yourself and your family. That way, the painting isn’t just something to take up space on your wall, but a reminder of a special time, place or person in your life.
Show off collections. Any open shelving is the perfect place to show off a collection of any kind. Whether you have a large library of books, antique dinnerware sets from around the world, or just mementos from your travels—adding them to your decor shows off who you are and what you love.
Bring in plant life. Bringing plants into your home is an easy way to liven up a space that may otherwise seem empty. You can also consider bringing in a new batch of fresh flowers in your favourite varieties every week. Not only can you change the colours each time, but they fill your home with your favourite scent.
Don‘t be afraid to get cozy. A luxurious house can often feel cold and impersonal if it’s too minimalist, making it hard to relax and unwind. Soft blankets and pillows should be easily accessible in living and entertainment spaces so you can quickly get comfortable.
