Kitchens are busy places, both practically and visually, so when designing one for real life, not just Instagram, try to inject colour in places it can easily be changed up when the mood takes me. These neon yellow handles are laminate pieces cut to size then sprayed with car paint and glued in. Experimenting is a great way to find what works for you and this is an easy and inexpensive way of doing so. Another big colour trend kitchens is metal. 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.
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.
