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. 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. 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.
BEIGE IS NOT SO BAD AS ACCEPTED TO THINK. In recent years, in professional circles of decorators and designers it is generally accepted that the interior in a beige palette is a relic of the past. But such a categorical approach to the choice of colors is not justified. Cream, ivory or cappuccino, ecru, powdery ... There are a lot of shades of beige, and by combining them together you can create a truly impressive design. 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. 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. OBJECTS ON THE WALL - A WELCOME ALTERNATIVE TO A HABITY WALL DECOR. Volumetric objects on the wall, whether it is a collection of plates brought from travel, or animal figures, will be a great alternative to paintings or posters. This decor, decorated in panels, looks more than original.
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. 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. 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. THE MAIN CRITERION FOR CHOOSING A DECOR IS POSITIVE EMOTIONS. Often, the external environment is not the most friendly for a modern person. Therefore, professional decorators for living spaces prefer to use decor that evokes only positive emotions. After all, the negative is enough outside the house.
