There are 8 distinct components to consider when decorating a room. You’ll feel finished when you’ve addressed each aspect.
Choose your favorite object in a room, whether it’s an antique armoire or a bay window. Make it the centerpiece and decorate around it. Let your favorite object suggest the color palette for the entire room.
Lighter carpets or flooring open up a room and give it a larger, airy feeling. Darker carpets and flooring can make a room seem smaller and cozier.
Slipcovers can change the look of a couch or chair quickly and easily. They provide an inexpensive way to update a well-worn piece.
4) Window Treatments
Window treatments — Curtains, shutters and shades can set an intriguing tone for a room. But don’t be afraid to leave windows untouched if the view outlined by the window frame is attractive. The window and its view can be more stunning than a piece of art hanging next to it.
Use spot lights to highlight showcase pieces like a piano, poster or piece of art.
Hang it at eye level, generally so the middle of the artwork is 60 inches high. If it’s too high or too low, it loses its impact. If you’re hanging it above a sofa or chest of drawers, place it between 5 and 10 inches above.
Think about symmetry and balance when placing these around your room. Matching candlesticks, vases or topiaries add a finishing touch.
Plants and flowers add color and fragrance to your room while creating an illusion of space. Tall green plants will make your room look larger and more spacious. Bushy floor plants can fill empty space. Make sure your plants are sitting in a vase that won’t leak.
In conclusion, your living environment is a cohesive habitat, make sure all the elements work together.
