SMALL PHOTOS - ON A TABLE OR SHELVES, BUT NOT A WALL. Many miniature photos or other images decorating the wall are perceived as visual noise. But on the table or shelves they look appropriate. It is advisable to arrange such decor in similar or identical frames. 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. DISCLAIMER OF AGGRESSIVE FORMS AND COLORS. Most professional decorators are of the opinion that the main and necessary characteristics of a living space are comfort and a relaxing atmosphere. It is better to create a corner of calm in the house than to opt for aggressive shapes and colors.
NICHES - FOR EXCLUSIVE ITEMS. The presence of niches in a home is often perceived as a drawback. Such an opinion can be justified if you fill a niche with many shelves with different-sized decor. It is recommended to place a collection of similar things in the niche, approximately the same in shape and size, or one or two exclusive items. THE COMBINATION OF BLACK AND WHITE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE. White is considered one of the most versatile in the interior color palette. In many ways, this opinion also exists due to the wide range of its compatibility with other colors. But professional decorators are wary of black and white color duets. This maximum contrast combination looks too sharp for living space. An exception are paintings in a black frame on a white wall, which unobtrusively add graphic art to the interior. 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. 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.
DROP, LUXURY, ALWAYS RELEVANT. Even if a minimalist style is chosen for decoration, there is a place for a couple of luxurious details in it. Large items, for example, a sofa or a carpet, should not play their role at all. To save money, you can order tailoring of covers from high-quality textiles on pillows or furniture. PRINCIPLE OF SWING FOR FURNITURE SETTING. High furniture in the interior should be adjacent to the lower, so that the view slides up and down, as if along the path of the swing. By the way, this principle is also relevant for small interior details, for example, decor. If things of the same size are placed nearby, then the interior will seem overloaded in some areas and empty in others. LITERATURE CHOICE OF LUMINAIRES TO THE KITCHEN OR LIVING ROOM. The kitchen or living room is not only the usual parts of the living space, but also the premises where friendly or family gatherings take place. Therefore, competent lighting is especially important here. Do not hang the lights too low, otherwise they make a depressing impression. The optimal distance from the chandelier to the countertop is about 80-90 cm with a standard ceiling height. It is also better to opt for fixtures whose width is from a third to half the width of the countertop. CREATIVITY IS MORE THAN PRINCIPLES AND RULES. Knowledge of various rules helps professional decorators to navigate the world of design, to acquire a basis for further development. But for each specific case only part of the existing principles and rules is applicable. Therefore, the creative component of the decoration process is a priority.
