There’s No Substitute for Luxury Interior Design If you love your home, you'll no doubt have put a great deal of thought and effort into getting the interior design just right. Sometimes only luxury will do: it makes all the difference to an interior, and makes you feel rather special. And rightly so: after all, if you've worked hard for a beautiful house, it's worth investing in an interior design that creates a feeling of luxury. Exclusive design is about much more than paint, wallpaper or ornaments. It's about creating an atmosphere of genuine luxury; a feeling of sheer opulence that makes you want to spend as much time in your interior as possible. exclusive design appeals to all the senses; it makes you feel alive; honored to be there. No surprise, therefore, that many design experts opt for high-quality metals and natural fabrics when designing for luxury residences. Furniture that is embossed with gold and silver; exclusive fabrics and genuine animal skins; antique objects d'art from high-class auctioneers: the work of an exclusive interior designer is very detailed, and will focus on creating the precise atmosphere and ambience that you want from your home's interior. Consider some of the best-known interiors in the world. The Palace at Versailles, for example, is a shining example of exclusive design. The finest French designs, the most opulent furniture and carpeting; rare pieces of art and intriguing ironwork ... all combine to create an interior that is sheer luxury; quite unmatched anywhere in the world. The Newport Mansion, too, are a superb example of exclusive design. These fabulous homes were once owned by the Vanderbilts - a family whose wealth and status meant that they could afford phenomenal enhancements to their interiors. These mansions, perched on the edge of the Atlantic, are a hymn to interior design: a veritable monument to the world of luxury and status. Cities such as London, New York and Paris are an excellent hunting ground if you're seeking design ideas to create an exclusive interior of your own. Head for hotels such as The Ritz and The Savoy in London: both fabulous examples of design. If you ask politely, the concierge may even allow you to take a photograph or two. In New York, The Mercer is a wonderful example of luxury interior design. Fabulous furniture, stunning artwork and high-design ornamentation all add to the feeling of opulence and luxury. Here is a hotel interior worth lingering in: it would be hard to imagine a better example of interior design.
