MORE FANTASY WHEN CHOOSING PLACES FOR ART SUBJECTS. The picture hanging over the sofa is a standard variant of interior decoration with paintings. But in this case, she is behind the back of most people in the room. Select for the picture a place where they will really look at it. For example, in the corridor.
BEIGE IS NOT SO BAD AS ACCEPTED TO THINK. In recent years, in professional circles of decorators and designers it is generally accepted that the interior in a beige palette is a relic of the past. But such a categorical approach to the choice of colors is not justified. Cream, ivory or cappuccino, ecru, powdery ... There are a lot of shades of beige, and by combining them together you can create a truly impressive design.
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.
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 omnipresent "GOLD SECTION". Decoration is one of many areas where the principle of the "golden section" can and should be applied. What is its essence? Suppose the whole is divided into two unequal parts. Most are 0.618 of the whole, and the smaller is 0.382 of the larger. At the same time, the smaller part relates to the larger one as the large to the whole. A similar size ratio is perceived by the human eye as close to ideal.
"YES" TO LACQUARIAN SHELVES. Shelves of intricate shapes can decorate the interior. But if you put books, figurines and other little things on them, then in general such a composition will look overloaded. Therefore, if you plan to use the shelves for their intended purpose, it is better to dwell on concise models. For example, on hanging shelves without a stand.
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.
