Luxury interior design is the designing of indoor spaces for luxurious, upscale houses, apartments and commercial property such as high-end hotels. This type of interior design focuses on top of the line products such as expensive furniture, glamorous antiques and opulent artwork. Since the design budget is high or limitless in luxury interior design, the designer has many options in choosing elegant lighting, furniture, flooring, cabinetry, fabrics and art. However, the challenge for an interior designer of luxurious spaces is in presenting a cohesive, yet impressive design that meets the client's tastes, needs and expectations.

Designing a luxury interior for celebrities, royalty or other wealthy people isn't easier than creating interiors for those on a budget just because the finest decor materials may be used. In this type of interior design, the spaces are often larger to work with and this can be challenging to designers in terms of scale. For instance, whereas a more modest home may have fairly large walls, luxurious homes often have gigantic expanses of wall space that can look too ordinary if left bare, yet too cluttered if groups of smaller pieces of artwork are placed there. Large pieces of artwork such as a tapestry have to be sourced and approved by clients. The luxury designer must carefully consider the placement of valuable art and paintings, such as not having them in direct sunlight as the colors could fade.

In luxury interior designs, the attention to detail is great, as even the smallest details matter. For example, a cheap, oddly colored plastic soap dish and wastebasket may not be that detectable in a modestly renovated, regular size bathroom, but in a grand, marble bathroom they may stand out like an obvious oversight. In other words, the main theme or concept in luxury design is luxury, so in order to make the idea strong and believable to the eyes, every detail must be luxurious.

Interior designers often create luxury interior design around an architectural focal point such as a large, elegant fireplace in a hotel lobby or a sweeping staircase in a mansion's entry hall. Luxury interiors don't necessarily contain more furniture and accessories than more modest rooms. Rather, detail and scale must work together to enhance features and space.
