After Celebrity Snoop Dogs launched on Channel 4 on June 26, our collective obsession with celebrity homes became even bigger. Thanks to a GoPro camera strapped to a celeb’s beloved pooch, viewers are afforded a glimpse inside an A-Lister’s house.
While some celebrity homes may be described in some circles as ‘understated’, others are unashamedly extravagant. The world has always been strangely fascinated with celeb homes, with countless regular Joes making a huge effort to replicate certain aspects of a celebrity home when designing their own abode.
Whether you are a world-famous celeb or just someone who appreciates an exquisite home, here are a few of the hottest home design trends to follow before the year comes to an end.
Decorative elements are more dramatic than ever before
If you want your home to have the same theatrical appeal as your typical celebrity crib, consider investing in a range of dramatic decorative elements that will breathe new life into your home.
Tapestries that depict tranquil landscapes, colorful oriental designs or mythological artwork are considered hot property right now.
Additionally, old, ultra-modern accessories including black-lined frames and mirrors, modern prints, oversized sculptures and vases, and contemporary cushion covers, carpets and rugs can all add a touch of drama to a room.
You can even opt for a dramatic kitchen or bathroom by steering clear of traditional white tiles and finishes and opting for dark colors and copper or gold fittings.
Bonus rooms add significant value to a house
Celebs are known to have a love for the extravagant, which is why you will find everyone from J-Lo to P. Diddy owning homes that feature bonus rooms such as gyms, sunrooms, cinemas and wet bars.
Industry specialists ranging from Hollywood interior designers to home builders in Delaware are creating exquisite, award-winning homes that effortlessly incorporate innovative spaces such as sunrooms and home cinemas into a home design.
Depending on the amount of space you have available, you can add a number of lush spaces to your home design. Home offices are always popular, as are dedicated homework rooms for children.
Smoking rooms, man caves, game rooms, home theaters fitted with all the latest hi-tech gear are also becoming increasingly popular among new homeowners, as are she-sheds.
Mixed metals make a lasting impression
Mixing metals is once again trending this year, with celebs and ordinary people alike opting to mix warm and cool metals to obtain an intriguing, luxurious look.
While metal finishings have been popular for quite some time, furniture in gold, silver, copper, tin and aluminum are all gaining popularity fast. Although metal is very fashionable, there are a few guidelines that need to be adhered to when it comes to decorating your posh abode.
When mixing warm metals such as gold and brass with the cool colors of silver and stainless steel, it is important to choose a primary metal and an accent one.
You can, alternatively, also opt for neutral metals, such as cast iron, that effortlessly combine with any other metals.
This year’s design trends will make it possible to spruce up a house with ease. Even if you do not own a mansion in Beverly Hills or Presidio Heights you can still make sure your house is super-stylish and comfortable to live in (and nab some nice compliments from anyone that comes and visits).
