“Elegant!” That was the answer I received recently when I asked a new client what her style is.
I love that answer!
Traditional can be elegant. But so can contemporary, mid-century modern, transitional and minimalist. Elegance can be incorporated in a home’s style no matter what the primary theme of the design is.
Almost every client wants a home that exudes elegance. An elegant design has a timeless quality that clients, their friends and family appreciate.
I think that elegance is created mostly through the choices made in a design. It comes from balance. It comes from quality furnishings and fixtures. It comes in the use of color and texture and a proportionality in the use of space.
Shapes also contribute to a feeling of elegance in a room. Graceful forms and contours without too many hard edges typically create a sense of elegance.
An elegant design has a tidiness and order to it. This can be created by de-cluttering the space, but also by using smart storage solutions in the design.
Elegant designs also display sophistication, which can be expressed in many ways. I find that one of the best ways to create a sophisticated look is with dynamic lighting designs, which add dimension to the room.
