Opulent Interiors: Mmmmmm……So Magnificent

 

Whether a grandiose, opulent lifestyle is what you prefer or not I think everyone can get a kick out of an over the top opulently designed space.  It’s just always fun to see.  And can be a great place to get ideas for your own home.

As for me….I actually love an opulent space…..and could have quite happily been a queen living in a castle.  Yes, it’s true.

I can quite easily see myself in this lush bedroom…..with these dogs no less.

I can see myself bathing in this spectacular tub…..

Or creating this large, colorful room for my daughter to entertain friends.

As I always say, over and over again, when it comes to design, any space – even an opulent space can be knocked off in bits and pieces for your own home, too, if you like the look.

If you’ve read many of my blog posts you know I encourage taking pieces of an expensive looking room and making them work in your own home.  There is a less expensive alternative for almost any opulent piece you see in these pictures.

So you can duplicate the look in your own home whether big or small.

Love the eye-popping tangerine.  The new big color for 2012!

And, I’m all about getting ideas from commercial places like this.  Great floors – and look at that rich stain and the stain glass window…..

Or even a magnificent cathedral like the Notre Dame.  Take just a piece of this amazing art and work it into your home on a ceiling or a wall, a piece of furniture or just large scale artwork.

I mean…..how magnificent!

Happy Decorating!

    Hi Sheri! I just discovered your great blog and read an old post of yours on Old World furnishings, where you featured Anderson’s furniture. Many of my pieces came from there. I LOVE that place! I am a new follower; and I invite you to follow me, too!
