The luxury lifestyle is one that many people dream of. However, you don’t have to be a celebrity in order to enjoy a life of luxury. You can start with the way you live. When you’re living in a luxurious living situation, it makes it easier for you to envision luxury in the other areas of your life. Start with the way you decorate your apartment. Consider the way it feels when you walk through the front door. To enhance the vibe and make your apartment feel more luxurious, consider the following tips.

Change the Lighting
Lighting is major when you’re looking to set a certain vibe. Most apartments allow you to change the lighting. As long as you’re not drilling holes or making permanent changes, it’s easy to install lighting underneath cabinets, countertops, and more. Get rid of any fluorescent lighting, and replace it with a softer light for a cozy vibe. Additionally, if you want your apartment to feel bigger, which is often part of luxury, then adding more light to your space can be the perfect solution. Even something as simple as floor lamps lighting the corner space can add significant visual space.
Go for Neutral Colors
Neutral colors are trending on sites like Instagram and TikTok. However, it has been a staple in luxury living for years and will likely continue to be considered a luxury for years to come. Even if you look at many content creators and the trending styles, neutral colors are in. This doesn’t mean you have to create a bland look. If you love color, it’s always fun to add pops of color in unexpected ways. Just start with a neutral base because it’s much easier to build on. A great example involves your couch. Purchase a couch in a neutral color such as taupe or brown. Purchase oversized pillows and rugs in neutral colors as well. The pop of color can be found in an interesting stack of coffee table books, a piece of gorgeous artwork, or a fun lamp that stands in the corner of the room.
Install Removable Wallpaper
Wallpaper is like art and though the trend went away for a few years, it has come back in popularity more now than ever before. It can easily make a space look more sophisticated, which can make your home feel like a luxury apartment. No one will know it’s not permanent when they come to visit you. Then when you are ready to move out, you can remove the wallpaper without worrying about any fees from your renter. Plus, it’s a great way to make a dramatic statement or express your personal style.
Prioritize a Great Scent
It’s not just about how the apartment looks or feels. You are able to process more scents per second than you are able to process visuals or sound. This makes the smell of your apartment as one of the most important attributes of your home. Bad smells can truly kill the vibe. Always keep a candle in each room. If you don’t like candles, a diffuser is a great way to gently make a room smell amazing with essential oils. By keeping your apartment clean, you’ll also help to promote a clean smell.
If you need more inspiration, take a look at major publications such as Architectural Digest. Their YouTube channel features a lot of celebrity homes. Pay attention to the features that stand out. See how you can recreate those features on a smaller scale in your apartment. As you gather inspiration and stick with the vision, you’ll make your apartment a place that you’ll never want to leave.
