Modern is in.  Luxury homeowners are seeking a spa-like look that is analogous to modern.  Modern luxury styleallows for free flowing entertainment spaces, floor to ceiling sliding glass disappearing doors, stone staircases with open risers, clean geometric lines tempered by area rugs, dark wood cabinets and soft furnishings.  In most markets, architects are going hybrid modern so that the style fits in with existing structures in the region.  The desert modern styles in The Ridges in Las Vegas are an excellent example of this.  Downsizing is also cool, replacing the luxury McMansions of the 1980s and 1990s.  The average size of a luxury home has actually shrunk by 10% since 2007 according to the National Association of Home Builders.  Neo-Mediterranean with Southern European flair and Craftsman style homes are also enjoying a revival.  Mediterranean and Tuscan work well in warmer climates like Las Vegas and match the landscape.  Luxury homes of this style have been around since the mid 1990s but they are still popular.  Craftsman style homes are becoming an American classic and are popping up coast to coast.  What’s not so hot besides the McMansion?  Split levels with stairs at every turn and Victorian with small rooms not conducive to 21stcentury lifestyles.  Luckily we don’t see many luxury homes in Las Vegas with either of these styles!  What is your style for a Las Vegas luxury home?  Click here to see styles of currently listed luxury homes:  Luxury Homes of Las Vegas
