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.
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.
WANT TO CHOOSE A STYLE FOR A DECOR - TAKE A LOOK AT THE CLOTHES OF THE HOUSING HOUSES. One of the ways that professionals use to choose the style and concept of decoration is to pay attention to the casual clothes of the owners of the house. This will tell a lot about their personal preferences and help decorate the space so that customers like it.
A pivotal figure in popularizing theories of interior design to the middle class was the architect Owen Jones, one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century. Jones’ first project was his most important—in 1851, he was responsible for not only the decoration of Joseph Paxton’s gigantic Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition but also the arrangement of the exhibits within. He chose a controversial palette of red, yellow, and blue for the interior ironwork and, despite initial negative publicity in the newspapers, was eventually unveiled by Queen Victoria to much critical acclaim. His most significant publication was The Grammar of Ornament (1856), in which Jones formulated 37 key principles of interior design and decoration.
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.
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.
COLOR NUANCES THAT MATTER. The generally accepted opinion is that all colors are divided into two groups - warm and cold. But in reality, every color, even white, can refer to one or the other group. It all depends on its shade. The same white can have a cold bluish tone (for example, both the color of the snow) and warm brownish (ivory).
PEDESTAL OF HONOR FOR THE DECOR. In order to enliven a decorative composition, try to raise several objects, its components, over others. For example, on the dressing table, part of the bottles can be put in a tall fruit vase. Such a simple technique, which is often used by professional decorators, will give the interior depth and volume.
