Luxury Trends for 2018

The beginning of 2018 brings with it fresh trends and new designs set to inspire another year of luxury living. Predictions for this year foresee home styling trends reflecting current social trends of a calm life balance and natural earthen luxury.

As our lifestyles continue to revolve more around technology, our homes become a place to seek solitude and peace from our busy routines. Continue reading for our tips on the top trends of 2018 to achieve total interior luxe.

 

Dark Woods- This year will see a shift from the classic Scandinavian light woods we’ve been enjoying in recent years, to darker and richer tones of delicious chocolate browns and walnut woods. Statement pieces like large dining tables or hand-crafted bookshelves can create a sense of ultimate natural calm.

 

 

Greenery- Pairing with the rich, dark woods comes bright and bold greenery which can liven up any room. Forget last year’s small succulents and think oversized palms, fiddle leaf figs or even a ficus. Choose big and bold pots to help the plant really make a statement. Not only will it add texture to your home, but there are also many benefits of having plants indoors, including minimising dust in the air and helping to keep room temperatures cool.

 

Cool Tones- As we continue to create homes which provide us a solace from busy lifestyles, cooler tones such as light linens and pearl greys will appear this year. Not only will they create a calming and peaceful space but will work with those rich wooden tones to balance the elements of your interior.

 

 

 

Terrazzo Flooring- This trend is on the way back for 2018 and bringing with it a classical timeless aura to any home. With its beautiful polished finish, this style gives any home a unique identity and a true sense of calm. Distinctive specks featured throughout the flooring gives a sense of earthy luxury and will make coming home to this space pure bliss.

 

Earthy Textures- Organic and earthy textures will see popularity this year, particularly rattan and wicker. Bright open dining and outdoor spaces can be livened up by incorporating rattan chairs or side tables with pops of colour brought to life through rugs and cushions. Simple wicker bed frames paired with light linens can create dreamy bedrooms to make you feel as though you’re in a 5-star beach resort. Don’t forget to bring in some greenery to compliment the natural tones.

 

 

 

Mixing Metals- This year we move away from basic stainless steel and continue to create luxury through interesting and unique accents of brass and copper. Tapware, door handles or even pendant lights and side tables can be found in beautiful copper tones and bring an ultimate level of luxury to your home.

 

Spa Bathrooms- If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the bathroom is the soul. Having a luxurious bathroom to come home to at the end of a long day is pure bliss and can really help us relax and destress. The biggest bathroom trend of 2018 will continue to be the desire for resort style bathrooms, complete with luxurious bathtubs for candlelit soaks, his and hers spaces and lavish lighting to complete the space.

All white bathrooms are on the way out, so incorporate fresh greenery and pops of colour through tiles, tapware and accessories. Bringing the wooden look through from the rest of the house can really add a resort feel to transport you to your favourite holiday destination.

 

 

The Vogue- A Dream Home

Driving to The Vogue inspires you even before arrival. Set in the leafy western suburbs it’s sure to impress and upon arrival to the home, it does not disappoint. The Vogue is set on a wide block and has taken full advantage of the available space. The impressive stonework adds an element of natural luxury and the elevation sets it apart from the other homes on the street.

As Dr Shivani Singh greets our team, it is clear that she too is as elegant as this home.

 

 

Dr Singh tells us this is the first time she has built a home, and that she was really pleased with the overall result.

“We chose Domination Homes after going to their display home and we really loved their attention to details and their specifications, and their style,” said Dr Singh.

Walking through the home, you can see that it was designed for a family who not only considers the finer details, but a family who likes to entertain.

 

 

Dr Singh attributes the ease of the building process to the help of the Domination Homes architect.

“The architect was just wonderful, so that was another reason why we went ahead with them,” said Dr Singh.

“He just gave us what we wanted, what my vision of the house was.”

The vision that has been delivered showcases prominent design elements including light filled open spaces that feature floor to ceiling glass, creating a welcoming home environment.

Further to this, the luxurious elements such as wooden features, stone tile work and marble accents make the home a modern blend of textures.

 

 

But creating a home that features so many intricacies is no easy feat.

Dr Singh told us that after finishing the build, they had several tradesmen coming through the home to finish small jobs.

“You know, when there are two people who don’t depend on each other, there is always a blame game. But I have to say, there were quite a few people who were working in this house and complimented the house.”

“They said to me, you don’t realise how complicated your house was and how well Domination Homes have worked around those complications,” said Dr Singh.

Dr Singh tells us that hearing this, confirmed that she had made the right choice by building with the team at Domination Homes.

 

 

Walking around the space, you can truly see that a dream home has been delivered. Every aspect leaves you in awe.

This home is a true testament to the luxurious, quality homes which Domination Homes can bring to life for you.
