Art speaks. Art elevates. Art sells. But most importantly, art depicts an emotion, a feeling. And what better way to emote the feeling of luxuriousness than by experiencing artwork from the comforts of home. Simply put, by incorporating art into the structure of a house itself – through the building's architecture, design flow and lighting ornamentations – is to seamlessly enhance, actually intensify, the interior vibe of an already exceptional grandiose home. It creates the most luxurious homey experience unto itself, and in a way, also serves as a quasi-tribute to the designing arts.
Peruse these distinctive residences that emanate a certain je ne sais quoi, and shamelessly share in some of the world's famed home interiors. Adorned with exclusive craftsmanship, each individual home makes some wild architectural fantasies come true by incorporating the most distinctive architectural design details, opulent light fixtures and grand sculptures.
