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. 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. 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.
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. TEXTILE SETS MOOD. If the design of the room does not produce the expected effect emotionally, then change the textiles in it. This is the most affordable way to change the atmosphere of a living space. FACTOR IS INTEGRAL FROM COLOR. Most books on design and decor show a tendency to separate color from texture. So, for the interior they think over the color scheme, but no one thinks about the texture map. Professional decorators recommend initially considering color and texture in relation to each other. After all, the texture affects the balance of light and shadow, and therefore the perception of color. 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.
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. 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. SUCCESSFUL DUET OF MODERNITY AND VINTAGE. The combination of things with history and recently bought in the store will benefit the interior. But in order for such combinations to look harmonious, choose which items in the room will be more - old or new. Combining them in equal amounts is not a good idea. 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.
