Luxury is defined by beauty, style, and comfort. It is an experience; a feeling created by the delicate balance between beauty and functionality. This Saudi Arabian luxury contemporary villa interior design epitomizes this experience. Pairing warm, earthy tones with bold gold accents, there is an unmistakable feeling of indulgent comfort the minute you walk into this glamorous home.
The entrance lobby is lavish, featuring a double height ceiling above the plush central seating area. The impact of this space is further enhanced by the dropped ceilings in the women’s Majlis and family dining room on either side of the lobby. The wall above these rooms is decorated with wooden strips, which echo the geometric patterns used in the surrounding rooms.
Light marble flooring unifies the ground floor and creates a neutral backdrop for accent features. The organic lines of the seating area follow the organic curves of the windows above the entrance. The natural light enhances the light tones of floors and furniture and highlights the contrast provided by dark wall accents.
A freestanding television, mounted on a gold-edged glass frame, creates a separation between the central lobby and a smaller private nook on the other side of the frame. The ceiling here is dropped to create a more intimate space defined by two lounge chairs and a geometric table.
A grand marble-clad staircase curves gracefully up to the rooms on the upper level. Modern glass railings, capped with a gold top rail, edge the staircase. The transparency of the railing makes it almost unnoticeable, drawing the eye to the curving marble steps.
The space adjacent to the staircase has a dropped ceiling with storage underneath. Floor-to-ceiling wood paneled doors screen the storage area from the rest of the entrance lobby.
The attention to detail is subtle. The vertical pattern created by the wooden strips on the wall in the lobby is echoed above the staircase and also in the wall mounted light fixtures in the storage area. This attention to detail adds an elegance and uniqueness to the luxury contemporary villa interior design.
To one side of the entrance lobby lies the women’s Majlis. It is separated from the seating nook by an open gold-framed screen partition infilled in with geometric lines. The seating is upholstered in a feminine shade of pinkish brown.
The walls are defined by a grid of white geometric square shapes. The gilded wall-mounted lighting fixtures mirror the detailing on the central glass coffee table.
The family dining room, on the other side of the entrance lobby, has a distinct mid-century modern vibe. Dark wooden strips form an intertwining geometric pattern on the wall. The geometry of the uniquely shaped dining table chairs is mirrored by the circular pendant fixture that supplements natural light from the window wall.
The corridor adjacent to the staircase leads to a small cloak room finished with dark wood accents. Guests can hang their coats or leave their shoes here.
The entrance hall to the men’s Majlis is a tall, narrow space with a double height ceiling. The narrow proportions of the space give it a sense of drama.
A beautiful, tall marble panel, framed by dark wood panels, forms the backdrop for a geometric console, which is the only piece of furniture in the entrance hall. Exquisite lighting fixtures are suspended high above, emphasizing the height of this dynamic space.
Dark wood paneled doors on either side of the console lead to the men’s Majlis and dining area.
The men’s Majlis is stylishly furnished with tan colored leather couches. Pale blue-green accents add a pop of color to the neutral tan shades that are predominant in the Majlis. The furniture is ordered in a circular layout around a large circular floor pattern surrounded by a diagonal square grid.
The use of geometry is vivid in the men’s Majlis. It creates a sense of movement and energy. The bold, geometric flooring pattern in the center of the room creates a focal point and draws the eye to it. The surrounding diamond shaped flooring pattern creates a sense of restless energy that is toned down by the pale blue-green accents.
Every room in this luxury contemporary villa interior design exudes glamor. Even the toilets are splendidly luxurious with the same attention to detailing. Tall, narrow mirrors on opposite walls create endless reflections, making this small space feel much larger than it actually is. Grey-brown granite wall panels are edged with gold profiles. The wash basins and towel rods are finished in the same gold finish. White marble fixtures complete the look.
The dining room is calm and soothing. Light green, textured upholstery on the dining chairs adds a subtle touch of color to the otherwise beige color palette. The variety of textures used in the dining room gives this intimate space visual depth. The velvety upholstery on the dining chairs invite you to sink into the chairs, while the sleek, shiny marble panels give the dining room a sophisticated style. The focal point is the eclectic dining table. Topped with heavily veined marble and edged with smooth panels, the snakeskin texture on the dining table legs makes this unique piece of furniture stand out.
A large, oval mirror mounted on the marble panels invites a second look.
The light fixtures are retro in style, with transparent globes mounted on metal frames. The ceiling strip light echoes this design.
The use of textures and the combination of old and new in this room give it a distinctly eclectic vibe.
The men’s Majlis on the basement level is spacious and grand. Dark accents on the walls and the highly polished gold and black center tables give this space a masculine feel. Light grey couches are set on the periphery of the room, leaving the central space clear of furniture. This makes the room feel more spacious.
A geometric patterned rug complements the bold geometric flooring pattern. The square patterns on the floor are mirrored in the square frames around the three-dimensional artwork on the walls. Green accents add some color to the beige-themed room; the green color of the plants is reflected in the patterned accent cushions on the sofas.
Bespoke, metal chain chandeliers adorn the ceilings. They complement the ambient lighting in the room, which is provided by the concealed ceiling lights.
Although large and spacious, the soft lighting makes the men’s majlis feel warm and inviting.
The bathrooms are modern and contemporary. They use unexpected combinations of materials and bold scale to enhance the feeling of perspective and make the bathrooms seems bigger than they are.
The bathroom console is a grey granite slab supported on a gilded frame. Three elegant vertical paintings adorn the walls above the console. Dual washbasins are tucked into a granite framed niche. Two geometric mirrors add flair to the bathrooms.
Downlights are recessed into grooves with dark profiles. These contrast with the white ceiling and the white marble flooring, creating strong lines of perspective.
The geometrical mirrors are supported on a backlit marble panel. The wall of the niche has a patterned texture that complements the grey granite and the light marble flooring. The fittings are simple and elegant; the white fittings blend perfectly with the textured backdrop.
Cool and contemporary, the lavish dining room on the mezzanine level has a formal air about it. Geometry plays its part in this room as well. The far panel on the wall frames a geometric patter with a gold and black marble frame. A long chandelier made of glass rods extends the entire length of the 14-person table.
Gold framed chairs with contrasting dark mauve upholstery surround an elegant wooden table with a gold-plated frame. The wall paintings are framed with gold as well, adding a factor of glamor to this dazzling dining area.
The luxury contemporary villa interior design also accommodates a game room in the basement. Bold geometric patterns on the floor and wall create an energetic vibe. Concealed lighting in the ceiling is supplemented by industrial-style pendant lamps above the billiard table. Additional recessed downlights are mounted into a groove for the option of brighter lighting.
This room is more functional with a subtle hint of glamor emphasized by the delicate gold accents. Contemporary modern seating with plush brown upholstery creates an inviting TV nook.
The media room is acoustically designed with wall panels inlaid with fabric. Grey cinema-style, leather seats face a flat screen television set in a wooden frame. Dark wood paneling gives this room a masculine vibe.
This luxury contemporary villa interior design oozes stylish elegance and splendor. Repeated geometric patterns, materials and colors help to unify the design, while unique accents give each space within the home its own distinct flavor.
