The news always broadcasts the latest multi-million dollar home built by a celebrity. As time goes on these mansions are getting more and more extravagant. For these stars it is standard to have indoor pools, 12 car garages, and more rooms than you know what to do with. We all dream about having such extravagant homes, but it seems so far fetched. However, it does not have to be. Here are a few ways to live luxuriously without having billions of dollars.
1. Location, Location, Location
Most celebrities typically reside in the same place, Los Angeles or New York. There are a few reasons for this. LA and NY are both two large cities where most of them work. The settle down in one of the two, sometimes both, to be close to work. The second reason being that home values increase there quite often.

2. Simple Design
On TV some celebrity homes almost look like no one lives there. They are all minimalist, pristinely clean and organized, and free from any clutter or space fillers. Large homes are hard to fill, but it can be easy for you to get this look as well. Make sure everything has a space, if it is hidden that is even better. You want to embrace the white space that you have; this will give you a more modern look. Stick to a clean color scheme with modern furniture. This will make the home feel more mature and put together. Do not go crazy on the wall decor. Hang up one or two focal pieces for each room to avoid having cluttered wall space. This will allow your home to feel simple, yet expensive.
