Upstyling your living space: From luxury home builders

It's a treasured space, and it sets the entire theme for your home. As luxury home builders, Chateau Architects and Builders have worked with some of the best designers in the business over the years.  We share some of the key considerations, and some of our favourite spaces - designed and styled to perfection!

The main consideration with building your ideal living room space is also about ensuring you have the best basic quality items to start as a foundation.
Here are some tips to help you 'upstyle' your living space:

• Have beautiful rugs and plush carpets. This is your luxury space of comfort after all. A highly patterned rug works with a plainer, space with mono coloured walls. Depending on who’s using the space, try to choose fabrics that are easy to clean and not easily spoiled if you have children.

• Classic, comfortable and beautiful sofas and chairs. You can never go wrong!

• Invest in sumptuous cushions, throws, and candles. It's worth changing these up every few seasons, to achieve a new fresh look and invigorate the space.

• Remember to add texture and touches of luxury including beautifully crafted coffee tables, and;

• Lighting is so important. You want to create the right ambiance in your home. Beautiful light fittings are always a great addition, and a beautiful chandelier never fails for a more dramatic look. If you're at the design stage, contemporary down lights are always effective.

Here are some of our favourites:

The most important thing to remember when trying to achieve this timeless look is, "Keep it simple. Less is always more!" Your living room will always have a fresh and current look and feel that you and your guests can enjoy for years to come.

Over the years we have been seeing in home living magazines like Vogue Living and Home Beautiful a minimal look that is open, de-cluttered space that is organised in a simple yet clever fashion.
