You can literally turn any wall of your home into your own personal art gallery. Everyone should display some form of art in their home, whether it is a rare oil painting or a cherished drawing from your childs pre-school days. The road block that most encounter is how to properly hang art. The best way to ensure there are no mistakes, and nasty nail holes to fill, is to trace and cut-out the frames outline on paper. Simply tape the paper cut-outs onto your wall, trying numerous placement options until you have the desired outcome.
How scale and proportion in design, when you enter into a room, it should be like a city scape a combination of different heights. You never want everything in a room to be a the same level or the same size. Accomplish this with different heights/sizes in your furnishings, art placement and window treatments.
The complimentary furnishing fabrics were key with rich velvets and a thick, lustrous silk rug specified to bring tactility to the scheme. We took much consideration to select the right sofa that framed the bay window and gave a focal point with soft interesting curves. This grown-up space is further defined by the jewellery dressing of a warm Roll & Hill globe pendant light, and metallic flashes of brass in the seating and floor lamps.
We all have hand me down furniture. Some are prized possessions, while others are weighing us down with distaste and guilt. Do you have one of those guilty objects in your home? You know, that piece that was handed down to you, you hate it, you want to hide it in the basement, but you can not because it was a gift from Grandma? Why make this decorating mistake? Why have something in your home that does not bring you joy and happiness?
