LESS COLORS - PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE. Staying in the living space, where the entire color palette is collected, causes concern and anxiety. Therefore, if you want to create a pleasant and soothing interior, limit the number of colors used in it.
HARMONY OF CLOSE FLOWERS. The simplest but really working method to create a harmonious color scheme in the room is to combine close colors. For example, several shades of green. To the interior does not look monotonous, add a few prints to it.
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.
FACTOR IS INTEGRAL FROM COLOR. Most books on design and decor show a tendency to separate color from texture. So, for the interior they think over the color scheme, but no one thinks about the texture map. Professional decorators recommend initially considering color and texture in relation to each other. After all, the texture affects the balance of light and shadow, and therefore the perception of color.
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.
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.
