There’s a group of people that rewrite the rules of interior design every year. We could be talking about the interior design specialists, but we are actually talking about the super-rich. They only represent 1% of the world’s population, but they are an important part of this industry because they represent, on their own, an important and imponent economical and creative force.

They travel the world and they have multiple luxurious homes and, for them, it’s absolutely essential that each of these pieds-à-terre is the pinnacle of good taste. They have the money to fully decorate these houses, but overall life experience has given them the knowledge to refine their design taste and to define what works and what doesn’t work in a home décor. For that reason, Designers know gives you 6 New Rules of Interior Design according to the Super Rich.
Texture Are Important – It’s been heralded as the new status symbol, replacing sleek, glossy surfaces. Textiles are in and they are becoming increasingly relevant in any home décor. Think for instance of buffalo-hide wall panels, rough metallics, grainy dining tables, tweed and dimpled surfaces.
Quality Hardware – It’s doesn’t have to be opulent or extravagant, but every sophisticated home décor needs excellent pieces of hardware like strong door handles, elegant cabinet pulls or stunning side tables pulls. They represent strong and important details that will help you revamp your existant décor or elevate a completely new project.
Greige is the New Black – Greige is a reference to a color between grey and beige, closely akin to taupe. There’s nothing wrong with greige, in fact it’s replacing black and white as the go-to color for a home design. Is it sort of boring? Yes. However greige provides the perfect base for other colors. So a greige sofa in your reception room can be topped with cushions in any shade. A color pop cheers the place up too.
Have a Strong Floral Strategy – You might have, for example, an opulent platinum color scheme for big parties, gold for smaller affairs and silver for when it’s just the residents at home. If the property is empty, fake flowers. All in all, flowers are important and need to be a part of the home décor!
You Must Hide Your TVs – Be aware, you should only display your ginormous television at your peril. It’s much classier to hide it inside a stunning furniture piece and a faux shagreen frame or behind a swanking mirror.
Versailles-style Opulence is Out – The good old days of big, majestic, gold and platinum décors are practically over. You don’t want to be too brash, but rather cosmic, elegant and cool in your home design. For instance, rather than a classical table, today’s wealthiest prefer deconstructed coffee tables featuring jagged edges and elegant finishes.
