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.
This image sums up spring. The soft and delicate pastels are feminine but not saccharine. The colour palette is beautifully calming for a bedroom and the warm brass tones add to the sense of luxury. The contrasting textures are so important, crisp white cotton sheets contrast with the lux velvet headboard and throw. I always like to add an edge to feminine interiors and the sharp lines of the bedside table and light work well as a juxtaposition to the soft furnishings. The bespoke cushion in cut velvet fabric also serves to toughen up the scheme and adds a wonderful pop of bold colour. This look is easy to achieve as there is so many lovely brass fixtures and tables at the moment. Mix up the hard and soft textures and always throw in something bold to a soft-hued scheme.
Your home should speak to who you are. It should be like a personal memoir of your trips, your loves, your life. There is nothing worse than walking into someones home to be greeted by beige walls, brown furniture and one mass produced print on the wall, pretending to be art. The above mentioned room just screams BORING! and we know our readers are far from boring. So, do not be shy when it comes to your home decor.
We love the confident, unconventional and out-of-the-ordinary style for this family kitchen. The simple, neat and clean lines combined with the choice of modern style furniture makes this kitchen a playful and elegant space. The style selected and the layout designed gives the privilege of moving freely in the space and allows the owner to enjoy every moment of the cooking ritual.
