Choose the masters that are closer to you - Matisse, Monet, Klimt ... The list goes on and on.
TIME MANAGEMENT IS NECESSARY IN THE CREATIVE PROCESS. After the choice of finishing materials is made, immediately proceed to their purchase or order. Refuse to be overly optimistic about delivery times. It is much more reasonable to assume that various delays and delays of suppliers are the norm, and not an exception to the rule. This principle will save a lot of time and energy. But do not forget to find a place in advance to store all the ordered materials and things.

In the choice of paintings and photographs that will become the decor for the room, the deep preferences of the owners of the house are fully manifested. Therefore, the decorator is better not to interfere in this process, but only to choose the appropriate frames or mat. If the owner of the house does not like photos or paintings, then it is better to leave the wall empty.

MORE LIFE THAN JEWELERY. Decorating a room, it is better to remember that the end result that you should strive for is not a beautiful picture for a magazine, but a space where a high quality of life will be ensured.
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.
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.
