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.
LISTEN TO YOURSELF. Inner flair is the basis for creating a style and concept of decor. Therefore, the decorator listens more to himself than seeks rational reasons for his choice.
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.
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.
ACCENT WALL INSTEAD OF FULL REPAIR. If the existing color scheme of the room is tired, then completely repainting the walls is not necessary. Try creating an accent wall by painting it in a contrasting shade. It will take a couple of hours, and the effect of the update will be noticeable.
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.
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.
