Luxury interior design celebrates the joy of living through comfort, elegance, and style. High-end interior design honors authenticity and individuality through key concepts and ideas that require a high level of intentionality and smooth execution. Luxury interiors involve the pleasures of all the senses, which remain gifts that continue to give throughout time, and are focused on the richness of experience and daily life. So how does one approach interior design with a goal of unique luxury creations in mind? Rita Chraibi has designed brilliant luxury houses in Miami and abroad. She is a master of luxury design that dazzles and delights all who enter her crafted spaces. While there are no concrete rules to luxury interior design, Rita understands how to create a space that feels lavish and sparkles with charm tailored to perfection. She outlines some tips and considerations for achieving the luxury dream through interior design.
One of the first things to contemplate is how to customize your space to meet your needs and wants. Luxury interior design comes with the invitation to be a little self-indulgent. Such plans will involve details that are meant to be enjoyed and allow for some pampering. This will mean something different to each person. For example, if you love to cook, your luxury dream home may have a spacious kitchen island to set out your ingredients. If soaking up in a warm bath helps you relax after a long day, perhaps your luxury interior design will focus on details of your bathtub, both in terms of beauty and comfort. If you are a movie lover, your luxury living room will establish comfortable seating and an elegant setup for your movie marathons. If nature is important to you (understandably because it keeps us alive!), you might opt for a big sitting area with enlarged windows where you can look outside on the vivid colors, exciting creatures, and sunshine that lights up, and brilliantly shining stars in the nighttime. If you practice meditation, give yourself a beautiful meditation space with luxury details, like gorgeous pillows and fragrant incense. Your luxury home doesn’t always need to involve the most expensive items—just ones that speak to you and feed your spirit. Because luxury interior design is so personalized, you will need to think about what matters to you and what you enjoy. Your spaces should allow for you to indulge in these activities without guilt.
Technology plays a massive role in modern life, and it certainly has a place in luxury interior design. Technology can increase comfort and convenience and has even evolved to showcase sleek and elegant designs and styles. Luxury hotels and luxury homes display the creativity and innovation of technology in interior design. Smart home technology has changed the way we live and the ease in which one can adjust lighting and the thermostat, use the television, see who is at your door, and much more. Additionally, smart home technology can offer personal touches, like playing one’s favorite music in the morning or starting up the coffee machine, so you awake to the smell of delicious coffee awaiting you. The exciting world of smart home technology is changing the world of architecture and interior design—especially for those who are focused on luxury. Technology allows us to make our homes places of comfort that require minimal effort for specific tasks (now you can even create a grocery list without putting pen to paper). Rita Chraibi stays well-informed about the latest technology choices in interior design and bears witness to how technology is changing the field of interior design.
One theme you may often see with luxury decor, especially in a contemporary luxury house, is that using less can be more beautiful. There is a growing appreciation for minimalism and getting rid of clutter and excess. There are psychological benefits to living clutter-free, and making an effort to incorporate only what is needed to achieve your goal will alleviate any sense of chaos and disarray. As Rita explains, “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” Be sure to use only the design elements that will define the purpose and intent of a room. Just because
many options are available, doesn’t mean they should be used–think about the things that speak to you. If you are no longer using an item, don’t hesitate to donate or get rid of it. Think even about the little details for clearing up your spaces: beautiful ways to hang your keys for easy access, where you can store mail out of sight, cordless power stations. You also may need to rely on your interior designer’s ability to problem-solve through clearing up overcrowded spaces. Look for ways to hide power cords, store unnecessary items, and promote balance in your interiors.
To sum up, luxury interior design will showcase the best of unity and balance, emphasizing comfort, and individual preference. Designing a life of luxury through your interiors is a process that will unfold to reveal the treasures of refinement, elegance, and functionality. Inspiration can be found almost anywhere—from the homes of celebrities to a specific theme or motif. For those lucky enough to live in beautiful Miami, home to International Designers’ United State’s location, inspiration can even be found right at home in the glory of lush vegetation, blue skies, and diversity of cultures. Think about all aspects of a room– the big pieces of furniture, how light changes a place throughout the day, and small accents. Brainstorm ways to make your spaces more enjoyable and comfortable. If you live in a colder climate, maybe it’s time to install heated floors in the bathroom! Remember that your home can do more than just providing shelter; it can be your personalized slice of Heaven where pleasures are abundant.
Experienced interior designers, like Rita Chraibi of International Designers, will lead you through creating your luxury dream with dedicated attention to every phase of the project—from design planning to finishing touches. Luxury interior design will honor your way of life while also improving it.
