LEAVE SPACE FOR MANEUVERS. As practice shows, to fully plan the upcoming purchases of decor and strictly adhere to this plan is an almost impossible task. Therefore, it is better to leave a little free space, which will take the fruits of impulsive purchases. LISTEN TO YOURSELF. Inner flair is the basis for creating a style and concept of decor. Therefore, the decorator listens more to himself than seeks rational reasons for his choice. THE CONTENT OF THE DECOR IS AT LEAST IMPORTANT THAN ITS FORM. In order to choose a decor that fits harmoniously into the interior, a good decorator should know how and what it is made of. After all, the content is invariably reflected in the form. For example, putting a flower pot on the window from material that is not resistant to fading, after a couple of months you can find it has lost its original color.
REMEMBER MIRRORS. A mirror is not only a reflective surface, which will help to make sure that everything is in order with the appearance. It is also a decor that has almost magical properties. Mirrors visually increase the space, make it brighter, airier and more refined. Decorators never forget this in the process. 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. "YES" TO LACQUARIAN SHELVES. Shelves of intricate shapes can decorate the interior. But if you put books, figurines and other little things on them, then in general such a composition will look overloaded. Therefore, if you plan to use the shelves for their intended purpose, it is better to dwell on concise models. For example, on hanging shelves without a stand. NEUTRAL DARK TONES - "CHAMELEONS". At first glance, neutral saturated tones, for example, dark gray, look boring. But in fact, with different lighting, they change color. So, dark gray in the morning will appear bluish, and at sunset it will have a purple hue.
HOBBY IN VIEW. Items that are used in the process of studying your favorite hobby can also become a decor. For example, even the canvas by the window, skeins of thread with knitting needles or an unusual form of sewing machine can decorate the interior. EMPTY WALLS - THIS IS NOT SO BAD AS THOUGHT CONSIDERED. It is generally accepted that walls of a neutral color without any decor are a sign that the interior was designed independently, without the involvement of specialists. But empty spaces are needed. Including, and in order to emphasize the expressiveness of the decor, give the look a rest. Therefore, if the interior is replete with details, then empty walls can be a suitable solution. DECORATIVE PLASTER - FORBIDDEN. In pictures in glossy magazines you can see decent interiors where decorative plaster is used as wall decoration. But in practice, there are very few masters who are able to repeat a given effect. The result may be unpredictable or very far from the expected. Therefore, professional decorators prefer wallpaper or painting instead of decorative plaster. CARPET OF RIGHT SIZES - WHAT IS IT? Too small or large carpet can disrupt the proportionality of the interior. Therefore, professional decorators are guided by a number of rules when choosing a carpet. The carpet under the dining table should be wide enough so that the rear legs of the retracted chairs are on it. Under the bed, it is necessary to place a mat protruding from under it by 40-60 cm. Otherwise, getting out of bed, you have to step on your feet on a cold floor. Another important point: regardless of the size of the room, the carpet should not come close to its walls. If the room is large, then 30-45 cm of floor remains free from the carpet, small - up to 20 cm.
