ORDER MANDATORY FOR A COLLECTOR. The best advice for collectors of medium-sized things, whether cat figurines or pebbles of an unusual shape, is to keep them grouped in one place, and not randomly placed around the room. Chaos from little things can spoil even a very decent interior.
INTERIOR AND DECOR - FOR RESIDENTS OF THE HOUSE, NOT FOR THE DECORATOR. If home improvement is done by professionals, it is important that at the end of the work the owners do not have the feeling that they are in someone else's home. Therefore, the owner’s desires are a priority, and the decorator’s task is to find an acceptable and aesthetic form for them.
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.
CLASSICAL RULE OF THREE. Items collected in a composition of three should differ in three ways - shape, color and size. For example, you should not put three identical photos on the mantelpiece. It is preferable to choose a photo, a vase and a book as a decor - objects that differ in each other according to all the mentioned signs.
CORRIDOR OR ENTRANCE HALL AS A BUSINESS HOUSE CARD. Corridor, hall or hallway - the space that we see first at the entrance to the dwelling, as well as the last at the exit from it. Therefore, these rooms, which are unfairly forgotten to decorate, are the hallmarks of the house. Choose a functional and compact decor, because the hall or corridor most often has a small area.
LINE STRENGTH. Different types of lines are able to create a certain atmosphere in the interior. Vertical (for example, columns) give the atmosphere grandeur and severity; horizontal (lockers, sofas) - calm and confidence; diagonal (stair railing) - dynamism; curves (round table or smooth arm arms) - sensuality and softness. In order for the interior to look expressive, it should combine different types of lines.
