7 Simple Ways to Make Your House Look More Expensive

When it comes to creating a chic space, you don't have to spend all of your hard-earned cash. These 7 simple yet stylish additions won't cramp on style, or your budget.

Want to recreate the interiors featured in luxury home magazines? It's not as difficult as you think, with a bit of time and creativity. 

1. Mirror mirror on the wall

Create an optical illusion by gathering together a collection of small framed mirrors of different sizes and shapes that can be found at secondhand discount stores. Reach all greater heights and elongate the walls by painting them all the same colour and gather together to create a magic mosaic. 

2. Garnish with gold

Gold exudes rich opulence and glamour. Add a liberal dose of shine by mixing brass, nickel hardware, gold coasters and copper vases together. This will evoke a mid-century modern design, and help turn your coffee table from bland to brilliant! 

3. Chic sheets

High quality bed sheets with lashings of colour create a focal point in the bedroom. Add grandeur with the Goosebumps collection – they’re vibrant, playful and add the perfect amount of opulence to our little punk’s bedrooms!

4. Leaf and love

Create a chic Parisian feel and select a foil-leafed poster or painting. Such delicate high-end artistry will frame the room and help create classic European opulence.

5. Velvet touch

Velvet has been used throughout the centuries by the design royalty across homewares and fashion. It’s rich and sumptuous and will add decadence and warmth to your living space or bedroom. A simple velvet cushion will add some va-va-voom to an otherwise boring room. Now, that’s plush!

6. Run it to the riches

A table runner adds interest by creating a visual feast to a conventional dinner table. Select a dramatic colour of either black, gold or olive green which will be sure to add decadent detail for your delightful degustation.

7. Get stoned

Marble is a luscious natural rock that has been celebrated and carved for centuries. Yellow Finch Scented Candles are housed in this beautiful stone, and help create a romantic richness and sense of luxury… with aromas that glow!

Home Room Studio, Urbaani Homewares and Goosebumps will be exhibiting at Life Instyle, Melbourne (30 July- 2 August).
