PAPPIOUS DINING ROOMS - IN THE PAST. If the house has a separate dining room, then for unknown reasons they seek to make it as grandiose as possible. Probably, guided by associations with ancient castles, where the whole family decorously ate food several times a day. But times have changed, and in a heavy and pathos atmosphere, a modern person will feel uncomfortable. Therefore, it is better to strive to create a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in the dining room.
FULL DISCLAIMER OF ARTIFICIAL TEXTILES. Most professional decorators strictly observe the principle of completely abandoning artificial textiles in favor of natural textiles. Cotton, wool, silk, linen are the only possible options for materials. Costs are increasing, but the result is worth it.
FIND A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR DECORATION. When choosing the direction in which to move, choosing a decor, we recommend that you forget the concept of "style". A more reasonable step would be to search for sources of inspiration, images that I would like to see in the interior. Ideas can be gleaned from paintings, films, music. For example, a room decorated in the spirit of the famous film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will look interesting.
PERFECT SYMMETRY - NOT PERFECT. A completely symmetrical room, equal parts of which look like a mirror image of each other, is perceived as uncomfortable to be in it. Therefore, in such a room must be present at least one asymmetric element. For example, a picture on the wall or sconces.
INDIVIDUALITY OF THE ROOM - IN LIGHTING. Even the most ordinary room can be transformed, becoming unique due to well-chosen lighting. On the contrary, inappropriate lighting patterns can ruin the exclusivity of the environment.
BIG AND SMALL IN ONE ROOM. The rules of scale, according to which the sizes of objects should correspond to the area of the room, have not been canceled. But in order for the situation to acquire character and expressiveness, it is worth a little to move away from its strict observance. One or two large objects in a small room will contribute to a visual increase in space.
"YES" TO LACQUARIAN SHELVES. Shelves of intricate shapes can decorate the interior. But if you put books, figurines and other little things on them, then in general such a composition will look overloaded. Therefore, if you plan to use the shelves for their intended purpose, it is better to dwell on concise models. For example, on hanging shelves without a stand.
