Lavish Finishes

Luxe design is a high-end and lavish style of interior design and décor. It is characterized by luxurious materials, such as marble gold, brass. Marble, for example, is often used for countertops, flooring, and fireplace surrounds. Velvet, silk, and leather are gorgeous choices for upholstery, curtains, and other soft furnishings. These materials add texture, depth, and warmth to a space, and create a sense of indulgence and sophistication.

Rich and Ornate

One of the critical elements of a luxe style is rich, bold colors like Pantone's color of the year, Viva Magenta. Deep, saturated shades of red, purple, and blue offer dramatic pops of color, while gold and silver accents add glamour and elegance.  Ornate details, intricate patterns, and gilded finishes on furniture and accessories come to life in a luxe space. Gensler's Aspire Post Oak residential project in Houston, Texas boasts luxe finishes in the interior design with gold accents, deep and rich colors, and ornate accessories.
