It can be not easy to get your home decorated right, especially with constant trends. Shannon Vos, an interior architect, shares his top home decor tips. The art of interior decoration is about adorning a space with beauty and life. It is the best way to tackle such a daunting task. This is how we can break down the process and communicate all our decisions.
Design or build is probably the most important step in any project. It is essential to have a plan.
Do your research
Find your style, your niche, your look. It’s easier said than done. It’s easier said than done. For example, a chalet up the mountains would look ridiculously beachy and coastal if it was styled like that. To create the style and colour you desire, you need to take advantage of what you love, what you have, and where you live. You can create a space that is your own and will feel like home.
KICK-OFF WITH A BREAK
It’s one thing to know what style or trend you want, but it is quite another to achieve that look. It would help if you created a brief for each room. This will help you to understand your needs and desires. Take your dining room as an example. What do YOU NEED from it? A table for six, easily-cleanable floors and chairs, ample task lighting, and a place to keep all your bills. What are you looking for in a dining room? What do you WANT from your dining space? Understanding the space will allow you to determine what you want. This will then help you create a brief form where you can start.
You can create a simple sketch of a space or area to help you plan your space.
START AT THE TOP
Ceilings and lighting can make or break a space. The space’s lighting is so important. It sets the tone for the space. A soft white ceiling with lots of reflected light can create an airy feel, while a grey ceiling with warm light and muted colours can bring comfort and warmth. These three types of lighting are what you need to layer to create character and personality. This includes lamps, spotlights, wall lights, spotlights, and anything directed and intended for use.
Follow the flow
The furniture selection is an important part of the decoration. Furniture is the largest purchase in a home. It can also dictate how the room is set up. Don’t overload your space with large pieces. You’ll have a more welcoming space if you allow your furniture and yourself to breathe.
Softness can make a space feel more welcoming. It is easy to overlook the impact of softness in a space. We love handcrafted furniture and big windows with natural timber floors.
A RUG CAN WORK A TREAT
The Dude The Big Lebowski Obviously, a rug can make or break a space. I like to test before buying rugs, and I always take a couple of rugs home to see which one works best. Place a third of your rug under a sofa or bed to allow the elements to overlap. Keep your rug free from any cabinets.
ART IS KING
An empty room is a space without art. But it doesn’t need to cost you a lot of money. An oversized canvas or a few prints can add a smile and colour to a dull space. A large print on a large wall will sit well. However, a smaller collection of pieces in a smaller space will work.
A clutter-filled space is the worst thing. Enough is going on in our daily lives. We don’t need to be dealing with the 18 candles in our lounge rooms or your collection of snow globes that you acquired as a global citizen. Get rid of the clutter and regain control over your life.
When you get stuck, use rules.
