Ideas for decorating your home, the golden rules
We all dream of a dream decor for our home, but a successful interior design requires research. Taste and a love of finding beautiful pieces of furniture are not enough to create a harmonious whole where life is good.
First of all, you need to define the style of your decoration, the one that best suits your family. Ethnic, bohemian, minimalist, vintage... It's not a question of mixing different styles together, otherwise you risk a visual mess, but of finding the one that will make your interior vibrate.
Indeed, harmony remains the key in terms of materials, materials and colours. The choice of fabrics, curtains and carpets must be consistent.
On the other hand, the interior decorator will advise you to take an element as a starting point. Define your interior decoration from a piece of furniture, a carpet, a fireplace, etc.
Play with natural light sources
Brightness is very important in a furnishing project. To decorate your home, take natural light into account by giving it priority.
Installations such as bay windows or interior canopies will create a passage of light. French windows will also be a source of light as well as an opening to the outside.
Arrange the furniture according to this light by orienting it boldly. In the living room, the sofa will be placed judiciously to catch the light or offer a breathtaking view.
And if natural light is lacking, you could turn to additional light sources. Lamps, spotlights, hanging lights... Artificial lighting also plays an important role in the design of a house.
Colours in a room
In a house, and especially in the common rooms, one will turn more to sober colours such as grey, taupe, beige... White walls will also be used to enlarge the space.
However, before choosing your colour on a colour chart, take into account the type of space. What is the room like in terms of size, brightness...? A trendy grey, for example, can dress a room elegantly as well as cool it down.
And to liven up neutral colours, an orange, blue or green section of wall will liven up the atmosphere. Indeed, a light base can be enhanced by a more assertive tone. In order to avoid a colourful look, it is advisable to limit yourself to two different colours. Coloured notes can also be brought in by trendy accessories.
How can you decorate your modern home while optimising space?
As a happy homeowner, you are keen to give yourself a warm home. To achieve this, home decoration plays an important role. Beyond the objects, it also involves good space management. Indeed, it is important to free up floor space so that you can move around the house easily.
In order to ensure that the passage areas allow you to walk around without difficulty, it is important to think about the layout of the place. It must be well thought out so that the space can be controlled in the best possible way. A minimalist style, i.e. without superfluous items, will make it easier to optimise the square metres. In this way, large pieces of furniture will be preferred to small pieces of furniture.
Before falling for yet another wooden coffee table or Scandinavian-style armchair, it is important to consider whether the new furniture will not overload the room.
However, minimalism does not mean coldness. To warm up the atmosphere, there is nothing like decorative elements evoking cocooning. A plaid on the velvet sofa, a Berber carpet on the floor, scented candles?
