LEAVE SPACE FOR MANEUVERS. As practice shows, to fully plan the upcoming purchases of decor and strictly adhere to this plan is an almost impossible task. Therefore, it is better to leave a little free space, which will take the fruits of impulsive purchases.
LISTEN TO YOURSELF. Inner flair is the basis for creating a style and concept of decor. Therefore, the decorator listens more to himself than seeks rational reasons for his choice.
THE CONTENT OF THE DECOR IS AT LEAST IMPORTANT THAN ITS FORM. In order to choose a decor that fits harmoniously into the interior, a good decorator should know how and what it is made of. After all, the content is invariably reflected in the form. For example, putting a flower pot on the window from material that is not resistant to fading, after a couple of months you can find it has lost its original color.
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.
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.
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.
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.
