Paolo Lopez of Ed Calma and Part­ners gives in­sights on luxe de­sign

Ma­te­ri­als are top-notch. “High-end does not nec­es­sar­ily mean ex­pen­sive, but more of­ten than not, high-end ma­te­ri­als carry a hefty price tag be­cause the ma­te­rial is more durable than your typ­i­cal choices at a de­pot, ” Paolo ex­plains.

Light­ing is im­por­tant. Light­ing plays a cru­cial role when it comes to de­sign as “it can make or break the look you’re try­ing to achieve,” Paolo says. “High-end light­ing is a unique ad­di­tion to the space. It sets the mood of the room, hence, if you want a high-end feel, you need to get good lights.”

Ev­ery­thing is an in­vest­ment. Con­sider high-end ma­te­ri­als and fur­ni­ture as in­vest­ment pieces. “As the cost of ma­te­ri­als con­tin­u­ously rise, in­vest­ing in cer­tain types of wood or stone would mean an in­crease in value as the years go by.” —PDG
