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.
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.
"CORRECT" CURTAINS - WITH WEIGHTLIGHTS AND TEN. In order for the curtains to form beautiful folds, braid should be sewn in their upper part, and weighting agents should be located in the lower part. The lining for curtains will not be superfluous: it provides excellent sound insulation and prevents them from fading under sunlight.
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.
"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.
UNIVERSAL BUT SUCH DIFFERENT PILLOWS. Pillows are suitable for decorating any interior, the main thing is to decide on a suitable color and size. But it is equally important to choose a place and a way of their placement. Large pillows, randomly scattered on the floor, will create a bohemian and democratic atmosphere, and square pillows lying in a row on the couch will be orderly and neat.
COLOR NUANCES THAT MATTER. The generally accepted opinion is that all colors are divided into two groups - warm and cold. But in reality, every color, even white, can refer to one or the other group. It all depends on its shade. The same white can have a cold bluish tone (for example, both the color of the snow) and warm brownish (ivory).
IMPORTANCE OF THE VISUAL ROOM CENTER. One of the key tasks a professional decorator faces is determining the visual center of the room. This is the point on which the gaze is concentrated first. For example, a large mirror, an unusual piece of furniture, or a lamp can act as a visual center. A room with a visual center looks more harmonious and orderly than not having it.
