Interior / June 6, 2018 / .
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.
We will see a monochrome colour trend. Monochromatic does not mean only black and white, it is more about shaping the space with one colour. Lets take grey, the most boring colour you say? Grey is not boring when chosen within the right context. From light grey to the dark graphite, the choice is huge. It is all about choosing the right colour to match the history of your house or retail space that matches perfectly with the existing building elements.
2018 is the year of the colour pop on the interiors scene and this living room completed by us last year perfectly illustrates how embracing bright colours will help you achieve a room that wows. This room really makes a statement with purposeful hits of bold colours in the deep sumptuous teal velvet on the seating, vibrant yellow lighting and splashes of pink in the accessories it creating a fresh, energised and personality packed room. The statement art above the sofa incorporating all the colours in the scheme brings cohesion and cements those colour pops!
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.
