Elegance in the luxury houses

luxury houses

From iLuxenio we propose a luxurious way of life, with our villas and luxury houses in the most exclusive zones and the most quoted soils.

A term tied to this is the elegance, which fits perfectly with a model of luxury house and sustainable villa

In which they reign harmony, coordination of elements and its resilience regarding to the environment in which it is.

For managing to reach the elegance in any construction is almost indispensable the use of noble and natural materials

Materials which transmit a sober and lacking language in ornaments that strengthens the simple lines and the most contemporary style of architecture or that simply they remember us this sensation that we always must be in contact with and to be conscious of the availability and the suitable utilization of resources.

As Coco Chanel said: ‘Simplicity is the key of the real elegance. ‘

Great part of the elegance sensation that a villa or a luxury house could transmit comes from the work of the interior design. According to Pantone (X-Rite’s subsidiary) relating agency in the manufacture, design and distribution of colors worldwide.

In all the sectors the trend colour of this 2017 is the Hunter Green or Green Mount, a very deep dark green that has been identified very well in the textile industry in portfolios and clothes in general and which also has established itself in the homes.

The perfect combination for this type of green as a primary colour is the grey, so the shade that provides to it is one of the most elegant connections, according to the renowned interior designer Roberto Lucena from the College of Interior decorators and Designers of Interiors of Puerto Rico.

But he warns us that it’s a color that, because of its depth, it’s to be used with moderation.

The perfect thing is to see it as an accessory, as a sofa, or if we want to go stronger.

We could put a gray armchair with a wall or an area in hunter green.

Lucena emphasises that where it would not correspond the hunter green, is in wide walls since spaces would get too much dark, as well as in big furniture or in carpets.

Apart from grey, blue, yellow, pink and peach would mate perfectly with this type of green.

In general terms, without bearing the trends in mind, if what is wished is the combination of elegance and luminosity for our villas or luxury houses the mixture of colors that always works is white and brown.

The brown puts its style and distinction and the white contributes its luminosity and false extent, when one finds the balance sheet between these two colors for each type of house with its respective features the result is something unique and distinguished.

If the particularity of a design is enough to award an interior design with a singular personality with much less requirements than you imagine, the use of noble materials in luxury houses and villas is another endorsement of guarantee.

Risking with organic design elements is a way of giving a fresh breath air to your villa elegantly.

A very valued material for decoration and construction because of its versatility and variety of lines, is the glass.

Its pure qualities have positioned it as a very showy and subtle element of interiors and exteriors.

And its integration with noble materials as it is the wood give to your design a marked chic style.

In trends of furniture and interior design, it’s not possible to speak about another style that is not the minimalist.

Since you could have seen in our Minimalist catalogue, it’s not necessary to exempt the luxury of this trend.

Although it is true that the confection of interiors under the minimalist principles, is an attainable challenge for the best and more experienced designers of interior, such as the ones we have in iLuxenio.

Following the minimalist design, furniture pieces integration in the same space could lead to the quality and image’s deterioration.

Minimalist in which one piece is the protagonist,  an ideal colours choice, it can give a result more than surprising.

As promoters of sustainable villas and luxury houses our advices for an elegant construction are:

  • Working with an architect with a philosophy and tastes similar to yours.
  • Asking for references of a recent and past projects’ portfolio as the ones you can consult in iLuxenio.
  • The architecture professionals bet this year for intelligent designs.
  • Characterized by several factors as they are the transformable spaces and the interactivity between the zones.
  • The transparent, laminated and brilliant surfaces are some of the aspects that are demonstrated by major force.
  • If one wants to promote the translucency, crystals are the best option.
  • Constructing with natural stones, metals and polished marbles.
  • The natural stone coatings are some very good thermal, acoustic and dampness insulatings for the villas or rustic luxury houses.

Depending on the characteristics of the chosen rock type, we will obtain a result more or less elegant.

As well as of its layers and placement procedures.

A detailed analysis of our luxury house and a decoration using this kind of minimalist elements would fascinate your guesses

At the same time that you make your own house a true home to live.
