ATTENTION TO SCALE. A moment that at first glance seems obvious, but is not always respected - the proportionality of details to the interior as a whole. So, a huge picture in a small bedroom will look like an alien element, like a miniature sofa in a spacious living room.
SELECTING A PHOTO AND PICTURES IS A BUSINESS OF THE OWNERS, NOT A DECORATOR. 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.
EACH ROOM IS A SPACE FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE. In the process of decorating, it is important to remember that any room is a shell of space and time, designed to achieve a specific goal. Decor, like design, should fit this space - match the way people live in it.
BALANCE OF LIGHT AND SHADOW. In many ways, the appearance of a living room is determined by how balanced light and shadow are in it. Therefore, proper illumination is very important. For example, for the convenience of staying in residential lighting, a multi-level layout of lighting fixtures is mandatory. Lighting also affects the perception of colors.
DO NOT BE AFRAID OF ERRORS. Without bold experiments, not a single outstanding interior was created. Better to make a mistake and fix it, than miss the opportunity to achieve impressive results in the decoration.
DARK TONES - NOT ONLY FOR BIG ROOMS. A small room, dominated by dark tones, looks no worse than light. Conversely, saturated colors dominate the boundaries of space, diverting attention from its modest size.
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.
