EXPERIMENTS WITHOUT FEAR. It often happens that things in reality do not look like in the picture. But such a discrepancy should not become a cause for grief. On the contrary, take it as a pleasant challenge that encourages improvisation.
OWNERS 'HOUSES AND DECORATOR - NOT OPPONENTS, AND PARTNERS. The optimal scheme of interaction with customers that decorators adhere to is a productive interaction, which is commonly referred to as "we".
BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT MAY IMPROVE LIFE. Surrounded by aesthetic and functional items matched with the soul, the mood will be better than without them. As the saying goes, "houses and walls warm." In a beautiful and comfortable house - they warm doubly.
In the Middle Ages, upper class Britons and other European nobility in castles or large manor houses dined in the great hall. This was a large multi-function room capable of seating the bulk of the population of the house. The family would sit at the head table on a raised dais, with the rest of the population arrayed in order of diminishing rank away from them. Tables in the great hall would tend to be long trestle tables with benches. The sheer number of people in a Great Hall meant it would probably have had a busy, bustling atmosphere. Suggestions that it would also have been quite smelly and smoky are probably, by the standards of the time, unfounded. These rooms had large chimneys and high ceilings and there would have been a free flow of air through the numerous door and window openings.
SELECTING A PHOTO AND PICTURES IS A BUSINESS OF THE OWNERS, NOT A DECORATOR. In the choice of paintings and photographs that will become the decor for the room, the deep preferences of the owners of the house are fully manifested. Therefore, the decorator is better not to interfere in this process, but only to choose the appropriate frames or mat. If the owner of the house does not like photos or paintings, then it is better to leave the wall empty.
BALANCE OF LIGHT AND SHADOW. In many ways, the appearance of a living room is determined by how balanced light and shadow are in it. Therefore, proper illumination is very important. For example, for the convenience of staying in residential lighting, a multi-level layout of lighting fixtures is mandatory. Lighting also affects the perception of colors.
BEIGE IS NOT SO BAD AS ACCEPTED TO THINK. In recent years, in professional circles of decorators and designers it is generally accepted that the interior in a beige palette is a relic of the past. But such a categorical approach to the choice of colors is not justified. Cream, ivory or cappuccino, ecru, powdery ... There are a lot of shades of beige, and by combining them together you can create a truly impressive design.
DARK TONES - NOT ONLY FOR BIG ROOMS. A small room, dominated by dark tones, looks no worse than light. Conversely, saturated colors dominate the boundaries of space, diverting attention from its modest size.
