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.
Even the most skilled designers make mistakes. It can be difficult to spot our mistakes when we have been muddling over the same room design for months—sometimes a room needs a fresh set of eyes to spot the problems. Ask a friend for an honest opinion on color choice, fabrics, or room arrangement. If it is feasible, hire an interior designer for guidance—you do not have to hire one for an entire design project, as there are plenty of designers who charge by the hour. Interior designers are full of clever design tips and tricks that can transform your home.

Distressed metal, such as these old copper saucepans will make a new kitchen look less sterile and give the space a unique, luxurious feel. Combine with a copper sink and tap and your space is instantly updated.
