Convenience and self-indulgence go hand-in-hand. After all, what’s more self-indulgent than getting the results you want with minimal effort? As you go through your day, think about the areas where you notice yourself expending extra effort. Do your best to brainstorm ways to inject a little connivance into your daily routine.

Remember: Not all luxury items have to be a huge expense. You can easily DIY similar experiences for pennies on the dollar. Are you a movie buff with no home theater? Invest in a universal remote that lets you dim the lights, start the show, and adjust the surround sound from the comfort of your seat. If you enjoy an evening cocktail, put together an outdoor bar cart to transform your backyard into a patio bar.

We often associate particular feelings with the concept of luxury, lounging on a plush, sofa after a hard day at work, soaking in a hot bath in your elegant Jacuzzi tub, or even cooking on a kitchen island that leaves plenty of room to spread out. When we have the chance to do these things, we feel a little naughty, almost as if we’re being indulged.

As diverse as the particular aspects of luxury design may be, one statement holds true: Every style has a luxury option. Whether your tastes are ultra-modern or tend to veer more towards a comfortable country aesthetic, there are ways to ensure a luxe feel. Follow these tips:
As it turns out, there are a few unifying characteristics about the ways in which our brains perceive luxury. Take a look below to find out more.
Of course, who ever said that a little self-indulgence was a bad thing? Your home should feel like an oasis from the outside world in which you’re constantly catering to others’ needs.

Take note of anything that catches your eye, especially if it happens more than once. Then, try to work something similar into your spaces to create luxurious interiors.
It would seem that we are not alone in these feelings. A study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information found evidence to suggest a link between luxury brands and the area of the brain that controls self-interest. In it, they asked participants to look at images of cars. Half of the group was given high-end brands, while the others were given more pragmatic choices. The researches found the luxury group experienced brain activity in their medial prefrontal cortexes, which is related to self-reflection and self-relevant processing, while the pragmatic group did not.
Where interior design is concerned, there is no set formula for how to produce luxurious surroundings. It’s more about creating a certain feel for the space than following a few of hard and fast rules. But, to try and give you some guidelines, asked a few designers to tell us what “luxury” means to them:
The Client, as a connoisseur of modern art – set in the interior some samples of modern artwork and sculptures from his collection – which refreshes the interior, add a bright contrasts and completeness.The interior was created in full accordance with the concept, which was agreed by the Client.

The whole interior was c design and implemented by NG studio interior design.
