Where do you start with luxury home design?

Start with a web search.

Decorating your luxury home requires a lot of planning, knowledge, experience and talent to achieve your ultimate luxury dream home.

Find an interior designer who is right for your project.


  • Start with web search for interior designers in your area


  • Look at their portfolio and see if you like their work


  • Read their philosophy to see if they care about you


  • Schedule  appointments with the firm that best fits your needs


  • Ask for referrals and phone numbers from previous clients


  • Are they able to handle all aspects of your project like: draperies, architectural detailing, access to unique products and qualified contractors


  • Review contracts and pricing policies

What do I look for in a professional interior designer?

They must be able to draw a detailed floor plan. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to start with a detailed plan of your furniture placement, lighting, traffic patterns, TV viewing, rug sizes... This is an area where a lot of costly mistakes are made.

Do they ask you questions? They can’t design around you if they don’t know what you want.

Do they ask for and get a budget? If you don’t know how much it will cost, they should be able to estimate based on the questions they asked you.

You might also think about hiring an ASID professional member. ASID members have the training and expertise to manage all the details of your project. They know the importance of listening to your ideas and understanding your needs. From consultation to planning to the finishing touches, they can help you every step of the way, explaining your choices and adding value to your budget.

Most of all, many clients who want luxury design want style that is enduring. There are endless styles, ranging from traditional to contemporary, dressy to casual, and all of them are unique. Stylish fabrics and leathers come from the finest resources in the USA and abroad.

The interior designer who works with luxury customers accommodates personal requests from their customers and orders many one-of-a-kind items. They can create the look you have been searching for, change a skirt on a chair, make that 3-cushion sofa a 2-cushion, add a special trim to pillow backs and seat tops. Embroidery, stenciling, and applying unique or antique covers to upholstered frames are just some of the details which a designer for luxury clients excels at.

 Fine artwork, custom pillows and frames, add a lot to finish off a room and a designer who works with luxury clients has the resources necessary to finish the project. Not only will the room be comfortable, but it will be beautiful to look at, and practical to live in. Elegant living and the demands of daily life are not mutually exclusive. All you need to do is find a designer who can work with you to give you the comfortable luxury living you desire.

Decorating your luxury home requires a lot of planning, knowledge, experience and talent to achieve your ultimate luxury dream home.

You should be able to select from extensive product lines of high-end companies spanning from traditional to contemporary.
