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.
MORE LIFE THAN JEWELERY. Decorating a room, it is better to remember that the end result that you should strive for is not a beautiful picture for a magazine, but a space where a high quality of life will be ensured.
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.
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.
BIG AND SMALL IN ONE ROOM. The rules of scale, according to which the sizes of objects should correspond to the area of the room, have not been canceled. But in order for the situation to acquire character and expressiveness, it is worth a little to move away from its strict observance. One or two large objects in a small room will contribute to a visual increase in space.
FACTOR IS INTEGRAL FROM COLOR. Most books on design and decor show a tendency to separate color from texture. So, for the interior they think over the color scheme, but no one thinks about the texture map. Professional decorators recommend initially considering color and texture in relation to each other. After all, the texture affects the balance of light and shadow, and therefore the perception of color.
NEUTRAL DARK TONES - "CHAMELEONS". At first glance, neutral saturated tones, for example, dark gray, look boring. But in fact, with different lighting, they change color. So, dark gray in the morning will appear bluish, and at sunset it will have a purple hue.
