Some handy tips when decorating
Start by collecting home decorating ideas that you feel inspired by. Choose an item that you feel you love and add home accessories and decorative accents that complement that item. You are more likely to be happy with your end result when you begin with an item that you already love.
Choosing the right colour that works for you is a key factor before you start buying your items. Choose one or two colours for your accessories that will complement your already existing colour scheme and furniture. If your colours in your room are neutral add accessories with textures to give your room character and warmth.
Scale and Size
The scale and size of your space and your home décor items that you want to add to your room will play a big role in executing the look that you are going for. Picking items that are too small will get lost and if you have a very large wall to work with rather go with large scale artwork to fill the empty space. A handy tip is that you should never have to look up at artwork on the wall. When hanging your artwork above your furniture, place it at eye-level for symmetry to create the correct look and feel. When choosing rugs, the scale of your rug is just as important as the style you choose. Be careful to not choose a size that’s too small and make sure that it is large enough so that parts of your furniture rests on it. When grouping your smaller home accessories together keep size and height in mind. Group decorative objects together that vary in size, this includes candles, picture frames and framed photos, small jars and vases and use odd numbers when placing these decorative accessories together.
Mixing and Matching
If you are accessorising a more formal design, use symmetry to create balance in your room. Create a symmetric and balanced design with matching occasional chairs, same scale wall arts on opposing walls of your room and place matching items on your sideboard or console. Even if you are going for a formal layout and design style, remember not to fall into the trap of matching all your items, mixing some styles and colours will give you a more interesting and professional look. If you like a more monochromatic colour scheme, add some character with different textures and put a personal stamp on your space. One way of adding different textures to your room is by choosing decorative scatter cushions that you can easily switch between seasons. A handy tip when arranging your cushions is.
