Luxury Home Decor
To indulge life with style that brings pleasure.
A Personalized Brand
Think about yourself as a brand for a lifetime rather than a trend. It is important to establish a long term goal that allows you to focus and follow a design/idea. Follow this easy steps to help create a lifestyle that is unique to your personality and budget.
Create a Storyboard or Collage of Ideas
Use a simple plot plan or drawing of your home to help keep things organized. Creating a storyboard or a collage of pictures that you find inspirational. This will help formulate a conceptual vision for you home. Use your favorite magazines, blog or Pinterest boards for inspiration.
Wants vs. Needs
Often times when we are planning to make purchases for our home or garden, we are confused between wants and needs. As an example, I want to raise my home so I can create a luxury workout area and parking for our cars. I need to add solar power to my roof which will lower my monthly expenses and be earth friendly. While both serve a great purpose, adding solar panels to my home will have be the better choice but creating the ultimate workout space with off street parking will turn my already beautiful home into a paradise in uptown New Orleans.
The B word
The B word for luxury home decor or better known as budget- it can break you without planning. Create a simple spreadsheet and create tabs for each room of your home. Make sure to included a tab for the outside. This will help create a realistic timeframe and funds required to complete each room or area. “Style for a Lifetime” Always think about buying for a lifetime over buying for a trend. Trendy things look great today- Shag Carpet- need I say more.
