Create a luxury look

By Imelda  Lewis, Interior Design Consultant at Guildfords showroom

We are fortunate to work with amazing properties and often a luxurious decorating style works equally well by way of contrast in a modern home as in a traditional one.

Go for glamour and style and sumptuous velvets that emphasise the deep buttoning of a Chesterfield style sofa.  Long simple headed drapes in today's modern tapestry fabrics evoke a country house feel with cherry wood furniture given a contemporary twist with distressed and painted finishes.

Complete the look by using a pop of colour with statement cushions and sumptuous trimmings.  Add to the dramatic effect by keeping accessories sparse but bold - and a statement mirror will transform a room.

How to create a luxury look

Formal feel

The classic look of buttoned furniture, sumptuous fabrics and trimmings and bold decorative accessories create a smart style statement.



A touch of gold

A luxurious combination of damask upholstery, bold stripes and gilded furniture and accessories has a timeless elegance.


Contemporary statement style

A rich mix orf soft blues, silver and gunmetal grey evokes contempory luxury softened with occasional furniture and accessories in warm golden tones.
