Habitat plus - Luxe lover

With a desire to release their flambuoyant inner self, the Luxe Lover surrounds themselves in bold rich colour, curvaceous forms, stroke-me fabrics, opulent furniture and gleaming accessories.

This style personality can take on a lavish old-world look with ornate detailing, gilt frames and brocades. Throw in some velvet, torrid reds and vivacious pinks and you’ll end up with a playful more flambuoyant interior. Or as a Luxe Lover, your home can have a more contemporary twist with glossy black surfaces, lots of glass, luxury accessories, and crisp white accents all merging to provide a larger-than-life Hollywood confidence.

Colours to try: Resene Enigma, Resene Pirate Gold, Resene Quarter Pohutukawa, Resene Solitude, Resene Hopbush, Resene Crusoe and touches of metallic paint finishes.

You may also feel at home as a Traditionalist or Classic Chic.
