With eye-catching patterns and metallic finishes, this art deco bedroom effuses luxury and extravagance. Rich wood accents provide stunning contrast against the room's charcoal, silver and black color palette.
Silver leafing highlights the dramatic height of this dining room while chairs covered in regal red fabric provide an elegant pop of color against the luxe finishes in the space. The slender crystal chandelier is an understated yet elegant addition that illuminates the silver-leafed ceiling.
This luxe game room features red hues and dark, rich wood finishes. Stone accents add to the room's rusticity, which ties to the home's Colorado mountainside locale. Dark beams criss-cross the ceiling, while modular sofas offer seating for many.
This richly layered living space features exposed concrete and reclaimed wood, set to a backdrop of soft gray and aqua hues. Wood finishes throughout warm up the space, while luxe touches like fur-covered pillows and sparkling chandeliers give it an elegant air.
Golden pulls work overtime in this kitchen, as they complement the blue-and-white color palette and add a luxe touch to the cabinets. To finish the summery space off, designer Michelle Gage brought in a bouquet of fresh sunflowers.
The Far East meets Hollywood in this contemporary bedroom. An Asian-inspired nightstand contrasts with a plush upholstered headboard that's very Hollywood Regency. The retro-style silver phone and luxe bedding put the finishing touches on this glamourous room.
A designer's home is a showroom, a laboratory and idea generator when it comes to finishes, trim, fixtures and ideas. Designer Michel Boyd calls his style "curated luxe living," and puts his focus on making sure each object in his home is both useful and beautiful. Keeping glasses, plates and other everyday items in the same style and color family is just one way to bring a designer vision to your home design scheme.
With a price tag of $29.8 million, San Francisco's Residence 2646, built by Troon Pacific, comes with a luxe feature or two including a garage-level car vault, LEED-platinum certification, advanced air-filtration systems and building materials and finishes that avoided "red-list" (worst-in-class materials in the building industry including asbestos compounds, BPAs and formaldehyde, among many others) chemicals. Oh, and for more prosaic tastes, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom five-level home also boasts stunning views of the San Francisco Bay.
“This room has some really beautiful moments: the bold, striped fireplace commands attention; the combo of zebra, white leather, mirror and crystal set against a moody black backdrop is pure Hollywood glam; simple, two-tone damask patterns add a sense of tradition and comfort that tempers the sharp lines of the very modern wall and floor patterns,” says designer Candice Olson. “However, I think this is a case of both too much and too little. Too many patterns — stripes, checks, zebra and damask — all scream for attention. Undertaking such an ambitious painted floor with very little time prevented Design Star contestants NataLee and Tashica from really finishing this room, and it shows on so many levels, from the shredded bedding to the perplexing mirror/aquarium placement in the fireplace. I would have simply let the striped fireplace graphic be the star; painted the floor white to contrast the black and yellow walls and brought in a large zebra-patterned carpet for interest in the center of the room. This duo's predictable perimeter bed placement reminds me a bit of summer camp — a little more swanky, mind you. I would like to have seen a few beds dressed as sexy daybeds positioned in the center with cocktail tables beside and a spectacular chandelier above, very LA-luxe (in much less time).”
