BATTLE MASSES DESTROY THE ROOM ADVANTAGES. Many small decorative details make it impossible to focus on the features of the interior or architectural features of the room. But if the task is to distract attention from the old decoration or furniture, then an extensive collection of decor can help.
ATTENTION TO SCALE. A moment that at first glance seems obvious, but is not always respected - the proportionality of details to the interior as a whole. So, a huge picture in a small bedroom will look like an alien element, like a miniature sofa in a spacious living room.
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.
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.
MORE CONTRAST. The abundance of monotonous shapes and colors can spoil almost any interior. Therefore, do not be afraid to use decor that contrasts with the decor and stands out against its background.
THE SAME SANITARY COLOR IS MANDATORY. In pursuit of original solutions, you may get the idea to install plumbing in different colors. For example, the sink is white and the bathtub is black. It is better to refuse such an idea at the initial stage, because the result of its implementation will be a disharmonious interior.
BIG AND SMALL IN ONE ROOM. The rules of scale, according to which the sizes of objects should correspond to the area of the room, have not been canceled. But in order for the situation to acquire character and expressiveness, it is worth a little to move away from its strict observance. One or two large objects in a small room will contribute to a visual increase in space.
