LEARN THE COMBINATION OF FLOWERS FROM GREAT ARTISTS. If you have problems with self-selection of colors or using the classic color wheel seems too boring, then try to use the color scheme of paintings by great artists as an example. Choose the masters that are closer to you - Matisse, Monet, Klimt ... The list goes on and on.
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.
REMEMBER MIRRORS. A mirror is not only a reflective surface, which will help to make sure that everything is in order with the appearance. It is also a decor that has almost magical properties. Mirrors visually increase the space, make it brighter, airier and more refined. Decorators never forget this in the process.
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.
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.
NICHES - FOR EXCLUSIVE ITEMS. The presence of niches in a home is often perceived as a drawback. Such an opinion can be justified if you fill a niche with many shelves with different-sized decor. It is recommended to place a collection of similar things in the niche, approximately the same in shape and size, or one or two exclusive items.
