You see all the time in magazines and online how celebrities have these opulent homes that you can only wish you had. Well, why is it that you feel you have to wish for a home like theirs? People don’t realize it but you don’t necessarily need to have a big house in order to have a luxurious house. It’s not the size that makes the home luxurious… it’s what you put in the house that makes it luxurious.
If your home is in need of a facelift or makeover, there are ways that you can achieve that look without the rigors of the celebrity lifestyle. One of the biggest ways to get that celebrity status type of look in your home is by keeping your home clean and free of clutter.
A Clean Home is a Celebrity-Like Home
Yes, celebrities are human beings just like the rest of us but the one thing they may have on us is that their homes are “seemingly” clean all the time, right? It makes you wonder how they do it… well, with them being a celebrity, they have the luxury of hiring house cleaning services but you also have that luxury as well, if you don’t really have the time to clean up as often as you would like to.
To even begin cleaning, the key thing is to first declutter. When you declutter, you’re getting rid of excess “stuff” you’ve accumulated over time that you no longer use. Whether you choose to donate your things or simply get rid of it, that’s completely up to you, the main thing to remember is that you can’t start your decorating process until your house is clean and free from clutter.
Not only will decluttering make your home clean but it will also improve your life in various ways. Mindbodygreen.com states that clutter is a reflection of life’s unfinished business, meaning if you declutter, you’ll have a clearer mindset to complete things from start to finish. This aspect is something great to have in your bedroom… That can take the form of having an undisturbed night of rest or waking up feeling refreshed and having a great rest of the day.
When you add that luxury flare to your decluttered room, just imagine how great you will feel! Take a look at the various home decor pieces to add to your bedroom to have you resting in a lap of luxury, and remember, it not the size of the home that makes a home… it’s the luxurious interiors that give it that celebrity status.
Glamorous Lighting: Crystal Chandelier
The awesome thing about chandeliers is its history in the home. It had very humble beginnings actually. A chandelier was specifically used to light up a room and was typically found in dining rooms, hallways, and living rooms… and they definitely weren’t as glamorous as they are now but as time went on, the evolution of the chandelier has drastically changed.
Today, you can find chandeliers in the bedrooms of many people wanting to add that lap of luxury to their resting place. A few centuries ago, chandeliers were composed of candles to bring light into a room but as time went on electricity took over chandeliers. In the world of interior design today, yes, chandeliers still serve the purpose of lighting a room but the chandelier now has to be multi-functional. A chandelier now needs to be able to light a room and be aesthetically pleasing as well.

That’s when you know it’s time for your bedroom to have a facelift… that’s when you know, you need to look into hiring house painting contractors.
You’re probably thinking that painting is something you could easily do but painting is not as easy as you think it is… why else do you think house painters are required to have special licensing to be considered as a contractor. Plus, if you’re going to do a house makeover like this, you’re going to want it done the right way the first time. You’ll want to choose colors that express luxury:
- Purple: royalty
- White: clean
- Green: plentiful
- Black: power
