We live in a world where we expect things to be done instantly and maintenance is being replaced by ‘throw away and buy another’. This way of living is also showing up in the way we decorate, where keeping the decorating simple and using furnishings and accessories to bring out our personality has become the norm. A quick coat of paint and change of furnishings and accessories and you can make a major change to the appearance of a room.

Colours are fashion.

This has become a key element of decoration and if you take a wonder around the stores each year you’ll note how colours go in and out of fashion. Of course part of this is probably just a means of getting us to spend more money on new furnishings, but either way colours can greatly impact the way we feel about a room.

Harmony and quality

The main concept in a design project for a house or apartment can be defined in just one word: harmony. Harmony among styles and elements that will be used, such as colour, fabrics, fabric textures and the right lighting can increase the perceived value of your design project or, if used incorrectly, can ruin it completely.

For example, you can set a modern architecture concept of interior design and mix the environments that you have with some classic pieces; or you can set a classic architecture concept of interior design and mix the environments with some contemporary elements. However, it is necessary to be careful.

For those who cannot hire a professional designer, it is very important that he or she knows how to get good quality design. The key is to avoid the use of too many colourful elements and strong colours. “Using only one colour tone in the environment it will be almost impossible to make it wrong,” according to many interior designers.

But what is the meaning of matching in an interior design project?

Interior design is like fashion: everything can be used according to the taste of each person. There are not too many rules. The first principle is to start from the architecture style of the house, after which the interior design can be defined.

For instance, it is worthless to have a very contemporary house and use many classic elements inside its environments. You have to follow the style of the house. However, to have one or another older piece in a modern residence brings a different and beautiful combination to the decoration.

The wall

It doesn’t matter if it is a painting, picture, sculpture or a poster with your preferred superhero, when disguising the wall; everything can do good or bad, depending on the dose, the distribution, the lighting and the position.

The walls of homes of people with more contemporary style, receive more and more giclees from pop art. Icons of this movement, including Americans Andy Warhol (1928-1987) and Roy Liechtenstein (1923-1997), inspire copies and their masterpieces have been reproduced on a large scale. With colourful draws, the ideal would be to hang them on more bright walls.

As a first commandment, the experts say that the masterpiece should mean something for the owner.

Big pictures need to be alone in the wall. Two or more of medium size can be hung side by side. And many small pictures, making geometric figures, are very welcome and can work to help draw the eye and create a feeling of a home that matches the personality of its owner.

Summing up

Ultimately right and wrong of the interior design is in the eye of the beholder. Most of us have been into a friend or relatives home at some point and either marvelled at their flair or cringed at how uncomfortable it was on the eye as we were on the way home in the car.

That being said this article covers some of the key basic points to be considered when designing your room.

If you have any other key pointers let us know.
