LEAVE SPACE FOR MANEUVERS. As practice shows, to fully plan the upcoming purchases of decor and strictly adhere to this plan is an almost impossible task. Therefore, it is better to leave a little free space, which will take the fruits of impulsive purchases.
EXPERIMENTS WITHOUT FEAR. It often happens that things in reality do not look like in the picture. But such a discrepancy should not become a cause for grief. On the contrary, take it as a pleasant challenge that encourages improvisation.
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.
FULL DISCLAIMER OF ARTIFICIAL TEXTILES. Most professional decorators strictly observe the principle of completely abandoning artificial textiles in favor of natural textiles. Cotton, wool, silk, linen are the only possible options for materials. Costs are increasing, but the result is worth it.
STYLE - THIS CONDITION. Denying the boundaries of existing styles is not part of our plans. But in the process of decorating living space, you should not strictly observe them. Much more important is how the owners of the house feel themselves in it, and not the full compliance of the design with a certain style.
CHOOSE ONE OF THREE PRINCIPLES OF FURNITURE SETUP. Everyone knows that it is better to refuse to place furniture along the walls. But what are the alternatives? The first option is a symmetrical arrangement, that is, around a certain point in the room (for example, the center of a room or window). The second is asymmetric, that is, not amenable to logic. The third is a circular arrangement, which differs from symmetrical in that the reference point may be a minor interior detail. For example, a chandelier or drawing on the carpet.
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.
