BATTLE MASSES DESTROY THE ROOM ADVANTAGES. Many small decorative details make it impossible to focus on the features of the interior or architectural features of the room. But if the task is to distract attention from the old decoration or furniture, then an extensive collection of decor can help.
EACH ROOM IS A SPACE FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE. In the process of decorating, it is important to remember that any room is a shell of space and time, designed to achieve a specific goal. Decor, like design, should fit this space - match the way people live in it.
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.
FIND A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR DECORATION. When choosing the direction in which to move, choosing a decor, we recommend that you forget the concept of "style". A more reasonable step would be to search for sources of inspiration, images that I would like to see in the interior. Ideas can be gleaned from paintings, films, music. For example, a room decorated in the spirit of the famous film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will look interesting.
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.
MORE CONTRAST. The abundance of monotonous shapes and colors can spoil almost any interior. Therefore, do not be afraid to use decor that contrasts with the decor and stands out against its background.
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.
