FURNITURE ITEMS: FIND GENERAL IN VARIOUS. If the room contains furniture from different sets, it is important that some common features are present in its design. It can be the color of the upholstery, the material or the shape of the legs. Otherwise, the integrity of the interior will be compromised.
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.
LUXURY OF COMPLEX FACTS FOR FURNITURE UPHOLSTERY. The usual version of upholstery for furniture is a dense, lint-free fabric. But it is worth abandoning it in favor of fluffy upholstery, and the interior will look in a new way. It is not necessary to decorate all furniture with artificial or natural fur. One or two items in the room will be enough.
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.
DO NOT BE AFRAID OF ERRORS. Without bold experiments, not a single outstanding interior was created. Better to make a mistake and fix it, than miss the opportunity to achieve impressive results in the decoration.
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.
The omnipresent "GOLD SECTION". Decoration is one of many areas where the principle of the "golden section" can and should be applied. What is its essence? Suppose the whole is divided into two unequal parts. Most are 0.618 of the whole, and the smaller is 0.382 of the larger. At the same time, the smaller part relates to the larger one as the large to the whole. A similar size ratio is perceived by the human eye as close to ideal.
