Luxury Homes: Tailor Made

Coco Chanel once said, “Luxury must be comfortable; otherwise it’s not luxury.”

That level of comfort is the essence of a luxurious residence. Like comfortable clothes, the most comfortable homes are tailored to the owners, their families and their lifestyles – no cookie-cutter design will cut it.

A few key elements in creating a luxury home, in the words of one design expert, are creating a spacious feel with ample ceiling heights as well as lavish use of natural materials. Building responsibly and utilizing low-maintenance materials are no longer luxuries but necessities.

Another item on today’s luxury home checklist are plentiful windows with private views, and if the private views include that of a splendid outdoor living area, you’re on the right track.

These Oklahoma homes, featuring the work of some of the state’s top architects, builders, designers and craftsmen, include all of the best elements of a luxury residence – and luxury never looked so comfortable.
