SMALL PHOTOS - ON A TABLE OR SHELVES, BUT NOT A WALL. Many miniature photos or other images decorating the wall are perceived as visual noise. But on the table or shelves they look appropriate. It is advisable to arrange such decor in similar or identical frames.
ORDER MANDATORY FOR A COLLECTOR. The best advice for collectors of medium-sized things, whether cat figurines or pebbles of an unusual shape, is to keep them grouped in one place, and not randomly placed around the room. Chaos from little things can spoil even a very decent interior.
INTERIOR AND DECOR - FOR RESIDENTS OF THE HOUSE, NOT FOR THE DECORATOR. If home improvement is done by professionals, it is important that at the end of the work the owners do not have the feeling that they are in someone else's home. Therefore, the owner’s desires are a priority, and the decorator’s task is to find an acceptable and aesthetic form for them.
BALANCE BETWEEN VIOLATION AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE RULES. To create a truly outstanding room in terms of decor, you have to step over a number of rules. But there are laws that are strictly not recommended to be violated. For example, among them are the rules for mixing prints, the non-observance of which will make any interior disharmonious.
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.
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.
