7 Fast Ways To Add A Layer of Luxe To Your Space | west elm

1. Mix-Up The Texture
“Use contrasting textures to add interest and play off each other. The addition of a sheepskin tossed over the back of this Bentwood Chair makes it feel cozy enough to settle into for a long morning of tackling my inbox.”

2. Hit The Bar Cart
“A bar cart adds a dash of old-school glamour to any dining area, and in small spaces, provides a much-needed surface for storing entertaining essentials. Stock it with the items you know you’ll actually be using, and use trays and pretty containers to divide everything into organized zones.”

4. Embrace Jewel Tones
“I’m obsessed with agate. An agate bookend is not only a functional addition to a bookshelf; its shimmering metallic surfaces are undeniably luxe and add jewel-toned beauty to any space.”

5. Embellish Your Desktop
“Even if you love a clean desktop, there’s always room for a few pretty embellishments. Peonies and a great-smelling candle add a touch of romance while still letting the wood surface of this Metal Truss Work Table shine.”

6. Have Fun With Accents
“Brass figurines add a playful sense of wit to any bookshelf or coffee table. Try letting one stand alone to really make a statement, or mix it with books, candles and other objéts for a rich-feeling vignette.”

7. Go Big With Flowers
Dress-up an earthy dining table with a really oversized bunch of branches or flowers. I love this big bunch of viburnum for its organic sculptural quality — and it adds major “bang for the buck!” When arranging stems like these, keep them long to show off their beautiful shape, and use a tall or wide-mouthed vase, jar, bottle or pitcher.
