Home decoration tips
5. Resist the temptation to be too topic-y. For example, the Cape Cod style is a very popular application. Do you know the: Dashboard, blue and white oar water, paintings of boats. But it has been done so many times, it lacks individuality. In this piece, coastal atmosphere is achieved through a palette of works of art and materials that give the effect without leverage the obvious clichés.

6. Create a focal point. There are main and supporting roles cast members in any production. It is the same in the design. Choose your star and make it a focal point to anchor a room. Allow other elements to play a secondary role. Do not ask everyone to have a lead role; This simply causes visual noise.
Your focal point could be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, a coat and a work of art in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom. Anyway, choose something that attracts attention. In this environment, the fireplace and lighting work together as a collective focal point, putting the eye in the center of the composition and anchoring it there.

7. Consider the lines of vision. Your focal point should be free and clear from one room to another, so you seem to be attracted to each other. This is why the best place for a focal point is usually directly in front of the entrance of the room.

8. Change your collection. Do not cling to a piece that does not fit. I do not care if your great Aunt Sally gave it to you. If that does not work for you, look for a new home (maybe in another room).
The unifying theme here is the use of black in utility rooms. The balance is almost perfect. This reminds me of something Coco Chanel said about accessibility, “Before you leave home, look in the mirror and remove a thing.” In design, know when to stop.

9. Vary the scale. What looks good in the store can look like an elephant in the room when you bring it home. Or it’s too small to have any meaning. So always vary the scale and proportion.
The mirror frame large sunbeams fill the wall space here while the sand dollars are below an interesting pool. They would be too insignificant individually. The three and five are nicer than even the numbers arrangements.

10. Add lighting layers. In the kitchen area, the back wall is activated, the work is highlighted and the interior of the cabinet is filled with light. A central lighting element would not have the same dramatic result.
Professional lighting create layers to create interest, intrigue and variety. In a room where everything is lit uniformly, nothing stands out. Choose a focal point and maybe a secondary focal point and bring them out. Add general ambient lighting and lower lighting, such as table lamps, for interest.

11. Be bold. Personality is what makes the space perfect. Make your own statement and have fun. The more you try, the more you start to see what works and what does not.
Incorporate unexpected elements into drama. The unconventional Ottoman bookcase seats in the library and the oversized chandelier here are unexpected in a classic room, but the result has a charisma. Avoid the rooms and the benefits provided if you want a piece that really healed.

12. Ignore any principle for creativity. Having guidelines gives people a good starting point for furnishing and decorating your home, although some of them are not practical for a particular space.
