INTERIOR AND DECOR - FOR RESIDENTS OF THE HOUSE, NOT FOR THE DECORATOR. If home improvement is done by professionals, it is important that at the end of the work the owners do not have the feeling that they are in someone else's home. Therefore, the owner’s desires are a priority, and the decorator’s task is to find an acceptable and aesthetic form for them.
FURNITURE ITEMS: FIND GENERAL IN VARIOUS. If the room contains furniture from different sets, it is important that some common features are present in its design. It can be the color of the upholstery, the material or the shape of the legs. Otherwise, the integrity of the interior will be compromised.
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.
Gary Friedman joined the company from Williams-Sonoma, Inc. in 2001 as Chief Executive Officer after being passed over for the CEO position at Williams-Sonoma by Howard Lester when Restoration Hardware’s sales were waning and the company was seeking additional capital. In 2005, Gordon left the company in order to take over as CEO of Robert Redford’s Sundance Catalog Company. In 2007, Sears Holdings Corporation announced the purchase of a 13. 7% share of Restoration Hardware, prompting speculation that Sears Holdings might attempt a full takeover. After the bursting of the United States housing bubble, the company was slated to close two stores in 2008, including the original store located in the heart of Old Town Eureka, and open one in Canada. In June 2008, the company completed the transaction without Sears Holding, but instead with Catterton Partners.
ACCENT WALL INSTEAD OF FULL REPAIR. If the existing color scheme of the room is tired, then completely repainting the walls is not necessary. Try creating an accent wall by painting it in a contrasting shade. It will take a couple of hours, and the effect of the update will be noticeable.
GOOD TASTE - THIS CONDITION. At first glance, the concept of "good taste" is fundamental in the design and decoration of the interior. But in reality it is conditional. It is better to focus not on observing the boundaries of good taste, but on whether a particular decorating solution is suitable for a particular room.
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.
