As you have read, there are a lot of common mistakes that can be easily made when it comes to interior design. Luckily, there are also plenty of easy solutions to fix these mistakes, sometimes it is as easy as getting rid of a hand me down that you hate but felt obligated to keep, while other times you may need to enlist the help and keen eye of a friend.
Mixing different textures, contemporary furniture with brown antiques and vibrant colours to create a unique, beautifully bold room. Bright velvet cushions, a purple leather ottoman mixed with printed fabric, ceramic lamps and artwork, silk velvet sofas. Forget your bog-standard grey or neutral rooms, the only beige thing about this room is the suede walls, why use paint when you can use fabric?!
With consumers becoming more aware of how their throw-away shopping habits affect the planet, is already seeing a move towards handmade and eco-friendly products that have character and longevity. Imperfections are being embraced, and natural finishes such as these raw pink plaster walls are cossetting in our hectic lives. Toughen them up with a contrasting element, hard with soft. Hard materials seen here such as leather, steel and wood are contrasted by the soft hand-woven jute rug, linen cushions and houseplants. Tones of terracotta, cream and sage work well with this pink palette and can be added to your room with throws, rugs and cushions. And if you want to add a touch of glamour, throw in a couple of brass candlesticks or picture frames.
What most of us do not understand is that interior design takes a very keen and knowledgeable eye. We may be out shopping and see something we love, but that does not necessarily mean that it will look perfect in our home. Interior designers understand how color, lighting, room size, scale, and placement all affect how items look in a room and dictates whether they will make or break a room design.
