Living a life of luxury is conjured by many but achieved by few. Many folks able to afford the finer things in life – whether through legacy, luck, or labor – have an assumption that a luxury-laden lifestyle appears impressive and enviable by default. But that’s not always true. Far too often, people aspiring to appear affluent attempt to do so by stocking up on expensive items, viewing the price they pay as proof of their social status. More times than not, the result is a gaudy display of wealth that lacks elegance and refinement.
For the sake of simplicity, let’s focus on a specific area where luxuriousness should look as good as it feels: interior design. You’ve gotten this far, so why not commission an interior designer to configure the look and layout of your living space? Here are five reasons why it’s worth doing:
It’s what we expect
Perfectly balanced interior design is synonymous with high-end living. Take a look at HFZ Capital Group’s Instagram page to see what we mean. The Manhattan-based real estate development firm specializes in managing luxury properties. Did they skip on the interior design? Based on what’s on the gram, it’s safe to say they didn’t. They recognize the importance of interior design when showcasing living space.
It makes us proud
The look and feel of meaningful space is a source of pride for many people. It could be the church they attend, the distribution center they manage, or the place they call home. Aesthetically pleasing interior design plays a significant role in how much we genuinely appreciate our living space. It’s not the cost of the comfy sofa and plush rug, but how they pair together, that determines whether or not a living space looks as good as it feels. If you want to feel good about how your home looks, interior design will undoubtedly play a key role.
It makes us feel good
Even if we don’t realize it at the time, we tend to feel better in well-designed interiors versus those that lack a coherent style and meaningful arrangement. Aesthetically pleasing environments lead to positive emotions. It’s a phenomenon that Pierre Yovanovitch, the interior designer behind a series of penthouses developed by HFZ Capital, realized through his appreciation for fine art. He noticed how emotionally affected he was by works of art and decided to try and do the same with his design concepts. The results have proven more than successful.
It’s now or never
You’ve reached the point where living the high life has become the standard. Now is the time to go the extra mile and apply professional planning when putting together the home of your dreams. Nothing is stopping you.
You do you. If you’re buying the best of the best and don’t care how it looks, that’s a righteous perspective and we wish you well. But if you want to appear to be a successful socialite, you must play the part. Start by opting for professional-grade interior design.
