CUSTOMER'S WISHES - DO NOT DISTURB, AND HELP. A professional decorator considers working with a difficult customer not as bad luck, but as an opportunity to increase his own efficiency. A demanding customer who is difficult to please stimulates the search for innovative solutions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
COZY MULTILAYER. The interiors, in which all things are hidden in the closets, look cold and uninhabited. An easy way to give them comfort is to use multi-layer decorative compositions. There can be many options: from a pile of bright magazines on a coffee table to a folded blanket on which lies a pair of pillows.
RULE 60:30:10 FOR THE COLOR OF THE INTERIOR. Formula 60:30:10 shows the ratio of different colors in the room. So, the main color occupies 60% of the surfaces, the additional - 30%, and the accent - 10%. At the same time, do not forget that the larger the surface area allotted for one color, the less bright it should be. As an additional and primary color, it is better to choose combined shades, and accent can contrast with them.
