Getting your house to pose its glamorous side is not something that just anybody can accomplish. It takes a secret combination of certain elements, including size, materials, colours, lighting, etc.
But instead of boring you with what to put where and how, we thought we’d just show you a house that fantastically succeeds in showing off both glamour and sleek style. Courtesy of Imativa Arquitectos in Mexico, this house goes perfectly with the globally renowned status of this capital city and its vibrant, thriving culture. Residencia R53 (dubbed so by its creators) is a mixture of inspirational designs, fascinating materials, contrasting textures, and pops of colours which are lively and soulful!

Now this is one structure that’s not afraid to flaunt its size! From outside, the house’s façade manages to impresses with an imposing look and feel that is countered by the soft glow of the clever lighting.
The breathtaking contours and dimensions of this super modern structure are clad lavishly with stone, creamy hues and even wood to ensure a mix-and-match of patterns and textures.
Although it’s safe to say that you won’t get lost in the living room, it is by no means considered “small” either. Yet it’s because of its lavish elements (like textured walls, cool materials and sophisticated furnishings) that it looks bigger and more welcoming.
The plush, white L-shaped sofa shows off a touch of brightly coloured cushions – Mexico is, after all, a country known for its love of colours. Not to be outdone, a retro-style leather chair adds a bit of flare.
And just to ensure that we’re marvellously impressed, a metal art installation to the left creates unique visual interest, balanced by the stylish simplicity of the solid coffee table.
When it comes to the heart of the home, this house shows us how to accomplish sophisticated without using any bright colours at all. Glistening black stone stands out in the material department, beautifully balancing with the pristine quality of glossy white and earthiness of wood-inspired laminate.
Gleaming chrome appliances bring about a bit of sparkle, and illuminated wooden beams ensure that the top space in this room won’t be classified as simply an ordinary ceiling.
And when it comes to the island, this kitchen flaunts a model with a sleek look that proves once again that you don’t need to opt for an overly decorated item to enjoy a glamorous style.
In the main bedroom, we see how velvet, silk and faux fur come together to create a deluxe space. Even though the bed has a small wooden headboard, the ornate wallpaper and beamed ceiling space flow together and make it look as if this headboard’s design is much more lavish than it actually is.
And what is comfort without a soft underfoot sensation? The plush rug at the foot of the bed takes care of this necessity with elegant success.
Everywhere we look, the house brings forth detailed spaces to help enhance the look of luxury – and that includes the aquarium, which flaunts a decadent selection of underwater aesthetics to ensure that even the fishes in this house enjoy a colourful and beautifully decorated space!
Allow our extensive list of professionals (including interior designers, architects, gardeners, lighting experts, etc.) to help you conjure up the house of your dreams.
What is glamour without spaces for leisure? The back yard definitely knows how to flaunt a lavish look, but not by opting for overly decorated items. All it does is treat us to a grand swimming pool that’s firmly wedged in-between a wooden deck (mimicking the beach on a hot sunny day) and a stone-clad wall which helps enhance the outdoor space’s visual detail.
Clean, simple, yet undoubtedly elegant!
