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.
ORDER MANDATORY FOR A COLLECTOR. The best advice for collectors of medium-sized things, whether cat figurines or pebbles of an unusual shape, is to keep them grouped in one place, and not randomly placed around the room. Chaos from little things can spoil even a very decent interior.
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.
JUDGE ON THE COLOR OF THE PAINT AFTER ITS APPLICATION ON THE WALL. Having studied the paint in the bank, you should not make hasty conclusions about its shade. Apply a little paint to the wall in the room where the surfaces are to be painted, and wait for it to dry. If the color is fine, then you can paint the entire surface of the wall.
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.
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.
LINE STRENGTH. Different types of lines are able to create a certain atmosphere in the interior. Vertical (for example, columns) give the atmosphere grandeur and severity; horizontal (lockers, sofas) - calm and confidence; diagonal (stair railing) - dynamism; curves (round table or smooth arm arms) - sensuality and softness. In order for the interior to look expressive, it should combine different types of lines.
