One of the features of many luxury homes is the view.  With a stunning view, there is not much further adornment needed in the home.  However, comfort is a necessity.  When selecting seating, choose pieces that fit within the scale of the room and offer comfort for all members of the family.

Invest in quality materials for the surfaces.  Marble countertops, flooring and accents make a strong statement.  High quality hardwood floors and exotic wood accents warm up a modern space.  Consider custom stonework for accent walls or fireplace surrounds.

Minimize decorative accents, adding only a few quality pieces.  A standout sculpture or painting makes a bold statement and can inspire the room’s overall design.  Take your time and accumulate what you really love.  For spaces with large open rooms, keep accents to that same scale.

Some modern spaces can look cold and unwelcome.  Lighting is the key to bringing warmth to the modern space.  Use dazzling crystal chandeliers and augment those with lamps and sconces.  Install directional ceiling lights to accent and provide additional illumination.
