Interior / June 9, 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.
Vivid colours, organic and earthy shades and textured fabrics work so well in this houseboat interior; mellow yellows, blues and greens compliment natural woods with an ease and elegance we could not assume would work quite so well. And they are all very on-trend right now. One thing I have noticed this year is the use of layering, from floor coverings to bedding, cushions and throws, which adds dimension to a room and gives depth to a design. Do not think to have seen this amount of mixing of styles and tones to create such eclectic styling, in a very long time, but inspired by it. If you are a lover of colour and texture, you could not be happier this season with such a vibrant display in the world of interiors.
