Tips to Decorate your BedRoom
some fresh inspiration for ways to decorate your home.
1. Decorating Key
We hate to break it to you, but designers do not follow a secret rule book. There are no hard and fast laws governing what we do. We are creative types by nature and love to imagine, dream and explore, following our intuition. That said, there are some rough principles that guide us to ensure a great result every time. They are just tried and true things that work. And these arent tricks or skills that take years to master. Anyone can do them from day one. Consider this a foundation for developing your own quirky, creative, rule breaking intuition.
2. Pick the paint color last
We get calls all the time from homeowners who want to pick a paint color before they move in. I get the logic. Why not arrive to walls with a fresh coat of paint. Of course you can do it this way, but in my opinion it is not ideal. There are thousands of paint colors with various tints, tones and shades. And each one looks different from home to home, because light sources vary, meaning what looks good in your current home might not in your new one. You want the color that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else. You can pick that color only if your stuff is actually inside your home.
3. Give your furniture some breathing room
Resist overcrowding a room. Gracious living means space to maneuver with ease. This is really great news if you are working with a tight budget. You do not need to fill up a space with lots of furniture. Spend more of your budget on fewer but better quality pieces, and your room will look better than if it is stuffed to the gills with flea market finds. The high backed chairs shown here, for example, stand out because they do not have to fight for attention.
4. Hang artwork at the right height
Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline (center) of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. (The average human eye level is 57 inches.) And you should do the same. In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember It needs to relate to human scale, not the structure scale.If you are not sure, take a picture. it is remarkable how much a photo can reveal. Print it out or use Photoshop or an app to draw on the photo. This can give you a sense of whether a larger or smaller piece of art is needed or a tall plant might be best to fill a vacant spot.
5. Know how to arrange furniture on a rug
There are basically three ways you can arrange furniture on your rug. The rug is large enough to place all of the furniture legs on top of it. This creates a more luxurious feel. For this, bigger is better. Just be sure to leave at least 12 to 18 inches of floor surface on all four sides of the rug borders. If you have a small room, keeping all legs off the rug is a great cost effective choice. You do not want to pick too small a rug, though, or it may look insignificant, like an afterthought. The rug should appear as though it could touch the front legs of each of the seating pieces. This approach is best suited when you are layering a pattern over a larger solid or textured rug.Put just the front feet of all your seating pieces on the rug to tie the arrangement together visually and create a well defined space while lending a feeling of openness.
