LESS COLORS - PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE. Staying in the living space, where the entire color palette is collected, causes concern and anxiety. Therefore, if you want to create a pleasant and soothing interior, limit the number of colors used in it. BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT MAY IMPROVE LIFE. Surrounded by aesthetic and functional items matched with the soul, the mood will be better than without them. As the saying goes, "houses and walls warm." In a beautiful and comfortable house - they warm doubly. 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.
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. INDIVIDUALITY OF THE ROOM - IN LIGHTING. Even the most ordinary room can be transformed, becoming unique due to well-chosen lighting. On the contrary, inappropriate lighting patterns can ruin the exclusivity of the environment. 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.
RULE 60:30:10 FOR THE COLOR OF THE INTERIOR. Formula 60:30:10 shows the ratio of different colors in the room. So, the main color occupies 60% of the surfaces, the additional - 30%, and the accent - 10%. At the same time, do not forget that the larger the surface area allotted for one color, the less bright it should be. As an additional and primary color, it is better to choose combined shades, and accent can contrast with them. 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. 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. 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.
