Incorporating Gold Glamour in Your Luxury Home

All that glitters is not gold – but with life at The Residences, it usually is. In modern luxury interior design, gold continues to be an element incorporated into rooms and common areas that can provide any space it touches with a timeless and luxurious elegance. At The Residences, gold glamour is another design choice we make to provide our luxury homes with a tone of upscale sophistication.

Elle Decor discusses adding gold accents and decor throughout the home to cast a fashionable and modern vibe in any space. For a more understated look, opt for a design choice that features an aged-patina. For a bold statement piece, position a glossy-gold as the focal point in a room. Whichever style you prefer, The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta provides your home with the perfect golden touch.

Elle recommends furnishing a room with gold side tables, giving your home with a little extra gold glamour and serving as a seamless way of tying together other gold elements in the room. Chairs, mirrors and light fixtures are another great way of incorporating gold into the home. As seen in photos of this luxury home at The Residences, a lustrous bathroom is designed with gold accents to create the perfect bold, polished look.

Luxury Kitchen Design Trends to Try This Year

At The Residences, the turn of a new year celebrates more than just new possibilities and resolutions – it brings to light fresh, modern interior design trends to incorporate into your luxury home. We’re excited to be at the cutting edge of those trends; some of 2018’s hottest kitchen finishes have already graced the interiors of our condos.

Open cabinetry is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why. Providing you with the opportunity to display a set of glassware or fine china, open cabinets create the illusion of additional space in the home, making the kitchen feel more open and playing off other glass elements in the room like oversized windows or a statement light fixture.

Combining strength and beauty, quartzite counters provide a clean, sophisticated look within the kitchen and are more durable than granite. When combined with a textured backsplash and metallic finishes, the sleek elements cohesively join to create a timeliness, luxury feel. We especially love the quartzite used in this waterfall island as a focal point of the kitchen.

Lastly, the kitchen has evolved into the showpiece of the modern home, and according to Realtor.com, “trophy kitchens” are now the most important wish list item for homebuyers. Notable features in a dream kitchen include chef-quality appliances and upscale cabinetry – both elements found within any kitchen at The Residences. Kitchens need to have the bandwidth to host a soiree catered by a private chef, or make whipping up a quick weeknight dinner feel like a luxury.

Sharp, clean and modern kitchen design elements will continue to define luxury this year. At The Residences, kitchens are complete with the highest-quality finishes and features, while being ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest product and design innovations.

Incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year in Luxury Homes

As we celebrate the new year, Pantone has already established the design world’s resolution: Ultra Violet 18-3838 will be 2018’s signature shade as the Color of the Year. Ultra Violet will saturate homes, trends and closets, and is described by Pantone as, “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade.” Pantone states that the bold hue communicates, “originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” The rich and luxurious color is perfect for modern, high-rise condos and can be incorporated into a number of spaces within the home. Here are a couple of tips for working the shade into your luxurious space.

Use it as an accent. The easiest way to start decorating with a bold color like Ultra Violet is to take baby steps. Try adding purple throw pillows, or a vintage rug with violet hues to a monochrome living area. Soften the deep shade by mixing it with other shades in the same color family, think – lilac, blush, mauve, blue, etc. the boldness of Ultra Violet will soften and suddenly feel warm and comfortable.

Consider the effect. There are no rules in design. If you want to go bold and paint an entire room Ultra Violet, use lighter shades to accent the rest of the space. White, creams, greys, and blacks pair perfectly. When applied to walls of bedrooms, offices, or rooms used for entertaining, Ultra Violet infuses energy into the space.

Six Predictions You Need to Read About the 2018 US Housing Market by Robert Clark for BuzzBuzzNews

Excerpt:

“Increased Millennial Presences in the Market – Millennials have, for the most part, been absent in the housing market in recent years despite the size of the generational group. Saddled with student loan debt, Millennials have found it difficult to save for a down payment while renting and paying off student loans. But with the largest cohort of Millennials expected to turn 30 in 2018, their share of the homeownership market could increase due to the sheer size of their generational group.”

These Real Estate Trends Will Be Game-Changers in 2018 by Cicely Wedgeworth for Realtor.com

Excerpt:

“Game-changer no. 3: Southern homes selling like crazy – When it comes to home sales growth, bet on Sothern cities to beat the national average in 2018. The South has been luring corporations and individuals to its balmy cities with its low costs of real estate, and living in general.”

The Latest Luxury-Apartment Perk: Alexa Everywhere by Josh Barbanel for Mansion Global

Excerpt:

“Home-automation features will be built directly into outlets, light switches and a smart thermostat that could be used to raise and lower the heat or air conditioning through word commands. The smart appliances would be connected through a hub to Amazon.com’s Echo Show, a device with a video screen, activated by calling out to ‘Alexa.’ Alexa can answer questions, play music, turn on the TV, provide a weather report, or show a video of a baby sleeping in another room. A typical command might be: ‘Alexa, turn off the kitchen light.’”
