CARPET ON THE CARPET. One large carpet in a room may look a bit old-fashioned. But such a non-standard decor method as placing several small rugs on it will enliven the atmosphere. We recommend paying attention to models with large patterns or embroidery.
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.
JUDGE ON THE COLOR OF THE PAINT AFTER ITS APPLICATION ON THE WALL. Having studied the paint in the bank, you should not make hasty conclusions about its shade. Apply a little paint to the wall in the room where the surfaces are to be painted, and wait for it to dry. If the color is fine, then you can paint the entire surface of the wall.
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.
CHOOSE ONE OF THREE PRINCIPLES OF FURNITURE SETUP. Everyone knows that it is better to refuse to place furniture along the walls. But what are the alternatives? The first option is a symmetrical arrangement, that is, around a certain point in the room (for example, the center of a room or window). The second is asymmetric, that is, not amenable to logic. The third is a circular arrangement, which differs from symmetrical in that the reference point may be a minor interior detail. For example, a chandelier or drawing on the carpet.
DISCLAIMER OF AGGRESSIVE FORMS AND COLORS. Most professional decorators are of the opinion that the main and necessary characteristics of a living space are comfort and a relaxing atmosphere. It is better to create a corner of calm in the house than to opt for aggressive shapes and colors.
UNIVERSAL BUT SUCH DIFFERENT PILLOWS. Pillows are suitable for decorating any interior, the main thing is to decide on a suitable color and size. But it is equally important to choose a place and a way of their placement. Large pillows, randomly scattered on the floor, will create a bohemian and democratic atmosphere, and square pillows lying in a row on the couch will be orderly and neat.
