Many of us automatically think of luxury as being large and extravagant, but often the most luxurious experiences in the home are smaller and more intimate, cozier and welcoming.
We are always impressed how in tighter confines, some of the most luxurious homes and hotels carve out these smaller, more compressed moments within rooms, both indoors and outdoors, that are exquisitely executed, extremely inviting, and deliver the kind of embrace that is a true luxury. Big and luxury are not necessarily intertwined. Often smaller, more precious rooms or areas of home delivers as much - if not more - of a luxurious moment.
In the picture above, for example, notice the chaise lounge tucked into the primary bedroom corner. Below are a few simple updates you can make in small spaces to deliver major luxury just in time for the fall season.
Add a chaise lounge. If you don't have room for a chaise, an accent chair will do the trick. The key is to find one in a comfortable, luxe fabric like velvet or boucle.
Layer decorative pillows and throws. This adds dimension and interest which is especially important in small spaces. Choose different shades of the same color for a monochromatic look that's as serene as it is luxurious.
Add a side table. Just big enough to have somewhere to place a candle, a book, coffee or glass of wine.
Almost every home has the potential to accommodate the creation of these moments that speak to comfort and luxury. We 'Think Big' at Compass, but there are times when thinking small also has its place. It's often sumptuous, opulent and luxurious.
