DECOR EXCLUSION METHOD - THIS WORKS. In rooms where decor is redundant, it is worth trying the method of exclusion - just remove some of the little things. Leave only the most colorful, but at the same time simple things, the presence of which really benefits the interior. The free space looks much more comfortable than it is filled with knick-knacks. BALANCE BETWEEN VIOLATION AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE RULES. To create a truly outstanding room in terms of decor, you have to step over a number of rules. But there are laws that are strictly not recommended to be violated. For example, among them are the rules for mixing prints, the non-observance of which will make any interior disharmonious. SELECTING A PHOTO AND PICTURES IS A BUSINESS OF THE OWNERS, NOT A DECORATOR. In the choice of paintings and photographs that will become the decor for the room, the deep preferences of the owners of the house are fully manifested. Therefore, the decorator is better not to interfere in this process, but only to choose the appropriate frames or mat. If the owner of the house does not like photos or paintings, then it is better to leave the wall empty.
EACH ROOM IS A SPACE FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE. In the process of decorating, it is important to remember that any room is a shell of space and time, designed to achieve a specific goal. Decor, like design, should fit this space - match the way people live in it. 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. UNIVERSAL BUT SUCH DIFFERENT PILLOWS. Pillows are suitable for decorating any interior, the main thing is to decide on a suitable color and size. But it is equally important to choose a place and a way of their placement. Large pillows, randomly scattered on the floor, will create a bohemian and democratic atmosphere, and square pillows lying in a row on the couch will be orderly and neat. NEW LIFE OF OLD THINGS. The abundance of old things in the house is a characteristic that speaks of the interior from a negative side. But you should not completely abandon them. Connect your imagination, and among the things that seem to have served their purpose long ago, there will certainly be something interesting. Some can be used in the interior in its original form, while others will have to be painted, upholstered or decorated with decoupage. The main thing is to strive to see hidden opportunities in old things.
ART OBJECT OWN HANDS. If you have an artistic flair, it’s quite possible to do an interesting thing that claims to be the subject of art on your own. It can be a collage from your own photos, a picture, a poster or a sculpture from papier-mâché. Make your work the visual center of the room by placing it on a pedestal. If the necessary creative skills are missing, then get a ready-made art object. True, this pleasure is not cheap. The art object will make the interior unique and free from the need to purchase numerous small decor. 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. 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. WINDOW DECOR FOR RULES. Competent window decoration is able to cope not only with aesthetic, but also with practical tasks. So, if you hang the cornice 5-10 cm above the window opening, then visually the height of the window will increase. In a similar way, you can increase the width of the opening. To do this, choose a cornice, the length of which on each side of the window is 10-25 cm longer than necessary. Such techniques will not only increase the window, but also visually make the room more spacious and brighter.
