We are all prone to impulse buys. It is not to say that you should not buy something that you fall immediately in love with, but maybe just keep the receipt in case it does not work the way you had originally thought. Before heading to the furniture showroom, it is best to have a plan and a budget well-established. First, your rooms need to be measured. The furniture placement and size need be planned properly. Luckily, there are a lot of online room arrangement tools that are free and easy to use.
Complementary colours, mustard and blue create a vivid and energizing atmosphere. The deep blue sets up a calming and whimsical surrounding, lifted by the touches of mustard. To achieve this playful and welcoming feeling, create a light colour background like a painters canvas, play with neutrals and add a splash of bold yet sophisticated colours.
We all have them collections. Somehow it started with one little ceramic bird and now you have a collection of birds in various shapes sizes and colors that you have amassed over the years. What is the proper way to display a collection such as this? Well, lets start with the improper way, and the mistake that most of us make, scattering pieces of the collection throughout your home. One little bird may tweet from a fireplace mantle, while another little bird somehow flew all the way over to perch on the coffee table.
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.
