HARMONY OF CLOSE FLOWERS. The simplest but really working method to create a harmonious color scheme in the room is to combine close colors. For example, several shades of green. To the interior does not look monotonous, add a few prints to it.
LEARN THE COMBINATION OF FLOWERS FROM GREAT ARTISTS. If you have problems with self-selection of colors or using the classic color wheel seems too boring, then try to use the color scheme of paintings by great artists as an example. Choose the masters that are closer to you - Matisse, Monet, Klimt ... The list goes on and on.
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.
PAPPIOUS DINING ROOMS - IN THE PAST. If the house has a separate dining room, then for unknown reasons they seek to make it as grandiose as possible. Probably, guided by associations with ancient castles, where the whole family decorously ate food several times a day. But times have changed, and in a heavy and pathos atmosphere, a modern person will feel uncomfortable. Therefore, it is better to strive to create a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in the dining room.
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.
FIND A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR DECORATION. When choosing the direction in which to move, choosing a decor, we recommend that you forget the concept of "style". A more reasonable step would be to search for sources of inspiration, images that I would like to see in the interior. Ideas can be gleaned from paintings, films, music. For example, a room decorated in the spirit of the famous film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will look interesting.
PERFECT SYMMETRY - NOT PERFECT. A completely symmetrical room, equal parts of which look like a mirror image of each other, is perceived as uncomfortable to be in it. Therefore, in such a room must be present at least one asymmetric element. For example, a picture on the wall or sconces.
