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.
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.
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.
PERFECT SYMMETRY - NOT PERFECT. A completely symmetrical room, equal parts of which look like a mirror image of each other, is perceived as uncomfortable to be in it. Therefore, in such a room must be present at least one asymmetric element. For example, a picture on the wall or sconces.
PERFECTLY NEUTRAL - GRAY BROWN. As the color, which can become a neutral background for the interior, most often choose between white, gray and beige. Professional decorators recommend paying attention to taupe. This color is harmonious in terms of the simultaneous warmth and coldness of its shade, and also does not bother for a long time.
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.
