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.
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.
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.
MORE CONTRAST. The abundance of monotonous shapes and colors can spoil almost any interior. Therefore, do not be afraid to use decor that contrasts with the decor and stands out against its background.
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.
ROUGH TEXTURES - UNIVERSAL UTILIZERS. If the room does not seem cozy enough, then for sure it lacks decor with a complex rough texture. It can be wicker baskets, a knitted blanket, a fur rug, a lamp with many faces.
PEDESTAL OF HONOR FOR THE DECOR. In order to enliven a decorative composition, try to raise several objects, its components, over others. For example, on the dressing table, part of the bottles can be put in a tall fruit vase. Such a simple technique, which is often used by professional decorators, will give the interior depth and volume.
