Decorating – 7 Best Secrets to Great Interior Design
Moving in a new home means new decoration. While this might be very exciting for some, it can be overwhelming for others. What color to choose, what style of furniture and how to arrange them – so many questions arise when it comes to decorating your new home. I have compiled a list of tips to help you create a homy environment while maximizing your space.
7 Best Decorating Secrets
1- Come up with a basic color scheme for your whole house. Choose 3 or 4 different colors that play well together and match them differently in different rooms. Here are some colors that are trending in 2017: dusky blues, blue-green, sunshine yellow
2- Use low furniture to create the illusion of height in a room. « Create strong verticals and avoid the horizontal, » recommends designer Todd Romano. « I adore large mirrors because they add scale to a room. I also kept the furniture low-slung, so the rooms seem taller. »
3- Use mirrors to warm up a room. They can make a room appear larger and reflect light. In addition, mirrors can add great artistic effect to a room.
4- Make your bathroom appear larger by using a glass shower and run the same floor tile over the entire bathroom.
5- Don’t be shy with the pillows. Pair pillows with different colors and patterns to add extra confort to a room. Designer De Bastiani says: « I don’t do dinky accents…small pillows look like something that came with the furniture. »
6- Try to mix and match your tableware. It will be more original than a set a new tableware and can also be less expensive. Go to thrift shops to find beautiful and unique pieces.
7- Mix your dining room seating. Use benches to add coziness and don’t use identical dining chairs.
There are many ways to make your home feel cozy and inviting. Use colors and furniture to enhance the quality of a room or to trick its flaws. The most important is that you feel at home every time you step through the front door.
