Here are some secrets Top Interior Designers know by heart, and use, for you to improve your home!
1. The first rule about decorating is that you can break almost all the other rules.
Something almost all decorators will tell you is that rules are meant to be broken. It is more important that the decor in your home reflects your living style and your personality than any conventional rule
2. Ceilings must always be considered. They are the most neglected space in a room.
When decorating, people tend to immediately think of the walls, followed by the furniture and then the floor, but rarely do people think of what’s overhead. Ceilings reflect the natural light coming in from the windows.
3. Add a pop of red.
You don’t have to be a fan of red to appreciate it in small doses. Just a hint of this peppery hue is enough to grab attention and make a room interesting.
4. Know that less is more.
Be careful not to overaccessorize every corner of a space, especially when its functional needs are simple.
5. Add life to a room with real greenery.
Add some plants and flowers to your decoration. Real trees also help to naturally improve indoor air quality.
6. Bring your own experience into your rooms.
What makes your home uniquely your own home are the things you have in it. Showcase your personal possessions to reveal your personality, adventures, and achievements
7. Have fun decorating
Don’t be afraid to try something new. You can always change it. Furniture can be rearranged and walls can be repainted. As with all things, in home decor, try something new, you might like it!
8. Make your home livable
It doesn’t matter what your own personal style is. The most important thing is to make your home livable. A well designed home is one that is both comfortable and functional.
9. Lighting is crucial.
Sit in all the rooms of your home throughout the day and you will notice where lighting needs to be supplemented. The right kind of lighting in the right space will add a glow and a warmth to your surroundings.
10. Accessorize. They’re the soul of a room.
Accessories are a great way to tie in all decor together. They can pull all the pieces together to give your space a finished look. Accessorizing is another way to add a personal touch to your space as they often tell a story of where you have been and where your interests lie
