MORE FANTASY WHEN CHOOSING PLACES FOR ART SUBJECTS. The picture hanging over the sofa is a standard variant of interior decoration with paintings. But in this case, she is behind the back of most people in the room. Select for the picture a place where they will really look at it. For example, in the corridor.
STORAGE SYSTEMS: BETTER MORE THAN LESS. Storage systems are not only sliding wardrobes, dressers and mezzanines. No less important in the interior are boxes, vases and bowls, where little things are added. So the interior will give the impression of an orderly and neat.
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.
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.
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.
ACCENT WALL INSTEAD OF FULL REPAIR. If the existing color scheme of the room is tired, then completely repainting the walls is not necessary. Try creating an accent wall by painting it in a contrasting shade. It will take a couple of hours, and the effect of the update will be noticeable.
CORRIDOR OR ENTRANCE HALL AS A BUSINESS HOUSE CARD. Corridor, hall or hallway - the space that we see first at the entrance to the dwelling, as well as the last at the exit from it. Therefore, these rooms, which are unfairly forgotten to decorate, are the hallmarks of the house. Choose a functional and compact decor, because the hall or corridor most often has a small area.
"YES" TO LACQUARIAN SHELVES. Shelves of intricate shapes can decorate the interior. But if you put books, figurines and other little things on them, then in general such a composition will look overloaded. Therefore, if you plan to use the shelves for their intended purpose, it is better to dwell on concise models. For example, on hanging shelves without a stand.
