LEAVE SPACE FOR MANEUVERS. As practice shows, to fully plan the upcoming purchases of decor and strictly adhere to this plan is an almost impossible task. Therefore, it is better to leave a little free space, which will take the fruits of impulsive purchases.
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.
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.
THE COMBINATION OF BLACK AND WHITE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE. White is considered one of the most versatile in the interior color palette. In many ways, this opinion also exists due to the wide range of its compatibility with other colors. But professional decorators are wary of black and white color duets. This maximum contrast combination looks too sharp for living space. An exception are paintings in a black frame on a white wall, which unobtrusively add graphic art to the interior.
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.
