ATTENTION TO SCALE. A moment that at first glance seems obvious, but is not always respected - the proportionality of details to the interior as a whole. So, a huge picture in a small bedroom will look like an alien element, like a miniature sofa in a spacious living room.
FOLLOW-UP OF WORK. In order to avoid unnecessary problems, think in advance the sequence of work on decorating and decorating the premises and follow it. Otherwise, it may happen that the wall, already pasted with wallpaper, will have to be ditched.
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.
In the Middle Ages, upper class Britons and other European nobility in castles or large manor houses dined in the great hall. This was a large multi-function room capable of seating the bulk of the population of the house. The family would sit at the head table on a raised dais, with the rest of the population arrayed in order of diminishing rank away from them. Tables in the great hall would tend to be long trestle tables with benches. The sheer number of people in a Great Hall meant it would probably have had a busy, bustling atmosphere. Suggestions that it would also have been quite smelly and smoky are probably, by the standards of the time, unfounded. These rooms had large chimneys and high ceilings and there would have been a free flow of air through the numerous door and window openings.
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.
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.
PERFECT SYMMETRY - NOT PERFECT. A completely symmetrical room, equal parts of which look like a mirror image of each other, is perceived as uncomfortable to be in it. Therefore, in such a room must be present at least one asymmetric element. For example, a picture on the wall or sconces.
THE RIGHT DECOR IS THE RIGHT PLACE. A decor item that is perfect for a particular interior looks different in different places. We recommend trying several decor options before choosing the final one.
