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.
OWNERS 'HOUSES AND DECORATOR - NOT OPPONENTS, AND PARTNERS. The optimal scheme of interaction with customers that decorators adhere to is a productive interaction, which is commonly referred to as "we".
PAPPIOUS DINING ROOMS - IN THE PAST. If the house has a separate dining room, then for unknown reasons they seek to make it as grandiose as possible. Probably, guided by associations with ancient castles, where the whole family decorously ate food several times a day. But times have changed, and in a heavy and pathos atmosphere, a modern person will feel uncomfortable. Therefore, it is better to strive to create a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in the dining room.
REMEMBER MIRRORS. A mirror is not only a reflective surface, which will help to make sure that everything is in order with the appearance. It is also a decor that has almost magical properties. Mirrors visually increase the space, make it brighter, airier and more refined. Decorators never forget this in the process.
CLASSICAL RULE OF THREE. Items collected in a composition of three should differ in three ways - shape, color and size. For example, you should not put three identical photos on the mantelpiece. It is preferable to choose a photo, a vase and a book as a decor - objects that differ in each other according to all the mentioned signs.
NICHES - FOR EXCLUSIVE ITEMS. The presence of niches in a home is often perceived as a drawback. Such an opinion can be justified if you fill a niche with many shelves with different-sized decor. It is recommended to place a collection of similar things in the niche, approximately the same in shape and size, or one or two exclusive items.
NEW LIFE OF OLD THINGS. The abundance of old things in the house is a characteristic that speaks of the interior from a negative side. But you should not completely abandon them. Connect your imagination, and among the things that seem to have served their purpose long ago, there will certainly be something interesting. Some can be used in the interior in its original form, while others will have to be painted, upholstered or decorated with decoupage. The main thing is to strive to see hidden opportunities in old things.
