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.
Every room needs a focal point, it offers a place for the eye to rest and assigns a room with a function, Larger rooms can have more than one focal point. This is a very common mistake, forgetting to give each room a purpose or point to focus on. Some rooms are simple, in a TV room the focal point usually ends up being the TV and the unit it is placed on, while all the other main objects in the room are focused and pointing towards the TV.
