MIX TEXTURES

If you can’t understand why your space feels lacking, adding different textures via accents could work. Always mix materials and add texture. This is a rule most interior designers live by. The goal is to make a space feel more vibrant and stimulating.

LAYER LIGHTING

Rooms with one type of lighting, such as a single overhead pendant, can feel two-dimensional. Be sure to have light coming from multiple sources, not just overhead. To add in different types of lighting, consider adding in floor lamps, sconces, or a small table lamp to create a subtle glow.

TAKE RISKS WITH ACCESSORIES

Afraid of taking risks? Start small, with accessories like a quirky bowl or statement vase. Don’t be afraid to take some chances to make bold statements, updating classic, timeless elements to make them current and your own.

ALWAYS MEASURE YOUR SPACE

An empty room can be very deceptive. But once you start adding in furniture you will quickly see how the room is actually smaller than perceived. If you don’t measure your space first, you can run the risk of having oversized furniture and completely ruining the look you were trying to achieve.

DON’T FORGO FUNCTION

We are all for buying beautiful sculptural pieces of furniture that has visual impact. But you have to remember that a home is to be lived in, and preferably in a comfortable way. So don’t forget the actual functionality of the room and how it will be actually used in day to day life.

SEEK SYMMETRY

There should always be a hierarchy of elements within the space. Even the most maximalist rooms should possess a cohesive dialogue with well-balanced, thoughtful dimensions.

INVEST IN PIECES THAT YOU LOVE

The only real rule in decorating is to buy things that you love. Before you make a purchase, ask yourself if the item really resonates with your sense of style. If the answer is yes, you’ll always have a place for it, regardless of trends.

HANG IT RIGHT

A beautiful painting or artwork will look far better when hung at the right height. Also, having a consistent center line throughout your home helps create a sense of harmony.

BREAK THE RULES
