Key Decorating Tips to Make Any Room Better
I hate to break, but designers do not follow a secret rule book. There are no laws that govern sustainable and rapid of what we do. We are creative by nature and like to imagine, dream and explore, following our intuition. Having said that, there are approximate principles that guide us to ensure exceptional results at all times. They are only proven and true things that work. And these are not tricks or skills that take years to master. Everyone can do from the first day. Consider this as a basis for developing your own eccentric, creative, and revolutionary intuition.

1. Choose the color of the last painting. I get calls from all time owners who want to choose a paint color before they settle. It gives me the logic. Why do not they come to the walls with a coat of paint? Of course, you can do it that way, but in my opinion, this is not ideal.
There are thousands of paint colors with different tints, shades and nuances. And everyone looks different from house to house, because light sources vary, which means that what seems to be good in your current home, maybe not in your news. You want the color that best complements your upholstery, this work of art, your carpet and anything else. You can choose the color that if your business is really in your house.

2. Give your furniture some breath. Resist the overcrowding of a room. A graceful life means a space to facilitate maneuvers. This is really great news if you are working on a tight budget. You do not need to fill an area with a lot of furniture. Spend more of your budget on smaller parts, but better, and your room will be better than if you are filled by the guts with discoveries at the flea markets. The high back chairs shown here, for example, stand out because they do not have to fight for attention.

3. Hang the illustration at the appropriate height. Galleries and museums hang works of art so that the center (central) line of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches off the ground. (The average human eye is 57 inches.) And you should do the same.
In a room like this, where the ceilings rise, there could be a tendency to contain the higher art. But remember: it must be related to the human scale, not the scale of the structure.
If you are not sure, take a photo. It is remarkable how an image can reveal. Print it or use Photoshop or an application to draw on the photo. This can give you the impression that if a large or smaller work is needed or plant size might be the best to fill a vacancy.

4. Know how to arrange the furniture on a carpet. Basically, there are three ways to arrange furniture on your carpet.
About: The rug is large enough to fit all feet of additional furniture. This creates a more luxurious feeling. Therefore, the more, the better. Be sure to leave at least 12 to 18 inches of floor area on all four sides of the carpet borders.
All: If you have a small room, keeping all the legs off the canvas is an excellent cost effective choice. You do not want to choose a carpet too small, but it may seem insignificant, as a deeper reflection. The carpet should appear as if it could reach the front legs of each of the seat parts. This approach is most appropriate when placing a pattern on a more solid or textured carpet.

Before: Just put the front legs of all your seat parts on the mat to fix the layout together visual and create a space defined at the same time that provides a feeling of spaciousness.
