Interior / June 25, 2018 /
Scale is the number one mistake that almost everyone makes when it comes to interior design. This is probably the case because it takes a talented eye to decorate a room with impeccable scale. Some people put too many small things in a room, thereby cluttering the room and not giving the eye a place to land. While others put too many large, bulky items in one room, making it look stuffed and small. The secret to proper scale is a mixture of different shapes, heights and sizes. If there is only one thing that you hire an interior designer for, it is help with proportion and scale. With the right scale your room is well on its way towards a successful design.
There is a general trend of people moving away from grey and very neutral schemes and increasingly embracing bolder, deeper-hued tones for walls and kitchen cabinetry, rather than limiting bolder colours to accent accessories and cushions. This is a guest room I recently completed in a traditional country house setting, although the colour would work just as well in a city bedroom or study. The depth of pigment in the salmon peach walls lends a masculine tone to what could otherwise be quite a feminine room and the overall effect is more modern.
