Interior decoration is clearly the theme where you can give vent to your imagination. But recently, certain patterns and rules have been formed in this area, which are strongly recommended for the organizers of the right home space. That’s just fashion – a fickle thing. And people always want to see around themselves new interiors and decor.
These natural desires attract new ideas, but what about the old templates? It can easily turn out that once considered obsolete and unfashionable suddenly becomes stylish and modern. Any self-respecting decorator directly states that rules are needed to break them.
Thus, all rigidly prescribed requirements for design simply crumble to dust. That is why those key myths in the interior decor part and should be debunked. After all, they have long been no guide for professionals, but many people still prefer to believe the old dogmas, considering them solid and indestructible.
Small rooms must be decorated in pale neutral tones or generally painted in white.
It used to be a common opinion that due to the white or pale shade of the walls, space can be made visually more than it really is. But this statement is truthful only in part. The scale of the room and its dimensions are much more connected with the shapes and scale of the furniture than with the color of the walls. It is also important how and where objects stand. Those who want to maintain the comfort and compactness of their room, it is worth trying and new options for the interior. After all, even a small area can be made hospitable and comfortable. And help in this addition of color on the walls, in accessories and even bedding. So you can “warm up” a small space.
Small rooms should be furnished with small furniture.
This statement seems logical, but in fact it is a stupid myth. If in an already small room to place even a small, small furniture, then an illusion of a toy doll house will be created. Such a frivolous perception of one’s own home will not give birth to the feeling that this is a strong fortress, a cozy shelter, a warm hearth. In a small bedroom it is not necessary to place a double bed, because she can eat all the place at all. But if such an option is acceptable, then why renounce it at once? Than to fill your room with numerous small elements, it is better to put a couple of large-scale things. With their help, the room will look more solid and bigger. In those places where space is clearly limited, one should think about the style of furniture and its functionality at the same time. For example, a wardrobe, though it takes more space than a chest of drawers, will spend space much more rationally. And at the foot of the bed you can arrange a vintage view of a pair of chests. So the room will retain its classic features and become more elegant. And things in these chests are stored both originally and efficiently.
When registering a room, you must adhere to the set of rules.
Before you start decorating your space, you must immediately abandon this harmful delusion. As we have already said, designers believe that in this area it is possible and necessary to break the rules. Naturally, a certain caution is needed to ensure that the fit room does not lose its appearance and condition. And to rely on decorating your own home, you must first of all to personal tastes and ideas about what is generally considered comfortable and stylish. It should be taken into account that this is in fact and should be the only rule, because in the house for sure you will live by yourself, and not the same critics from the design magazines or friends with the “right” taste. So it is worth picking up such furniture, which is to the liking and use those colors that give positive feelings. Do not be afraid to expose in the most prominent place the objects of your hobbies, crafts. Anyone can show resourcefulness and become original in the design of his home.As a result, the human dwelling should best reflect its tastes and interests.
In dark rooms, space seems to be smaller than it really is.
Dark rooms may well make the interior warmer, and also provide it with texture and size. Such shades give a sense of sophistication, style and some kind of drama. It is worth considering and the fact that the dark walls can perfectly act as a canvas for further work. If you hang a work of art on it, the accent will be much more obvious than on a similar work on an ordinary white wall. It is worth repeating again that the color of the walls and not particularly affect the visual sense of space, where much more important is the furniture placed inside. It is necessary to choose it correctly, in proportion to the size of the room, and then the walls can already be painted in any color at will. And in order that the room does not lose its volume, it should be kept open. Premises often lose space if they are crowded and closed.
With dark ceilings, the room becomes shorter and generally smaller.
This myth is related to the previous one, but again the truth is not completely. With the help of colorful ceilings, you can bring into the room the size and texture. Such ceilings can emphasize the highlight of the room, make the space more sophisticated or sophisticated. If in a small space walls or furniture will be made in lighter tones than a dark ceiling, this can give rise to strange effects. And in other situations the painted ceiling should not spoil the sensation of the room, making it short or shallow. Those who are seriously worried about their space, to whom it will seem small and not bright, you can advise you to bring decorative mirrors into it. With their help, reflections of the walls will be created and additional light sources will appear.
You can not mix the print with the patterns.
Who said that you can not do this? Sometimes it happens that there is no better way to add personality, texture and color to the room. The combinations of heterogeneous elements in one space can lead to interesting results. It turns out that bright textures, paintings, plaids and floral prints with stripes are perfectly combined. But in order for the conceived to be realized successfully, we must adhere to a pre-selected color scheme. And already depending on the palette, whether blue or gray, pink or green, you can mix patterns and fabrics.
It is worth sticking to a single focal point.
Everyone knows that our world is clearly not one-dimensional and heterogeneous. Similarly, our dwellings can not be tied to a single dimension and center. In any living space there are four walls, but who said that the designer is obliged as a starting point to stick to only one of them? Who said that one of the parts or zones is less important than the central one. Why it is necessary to do accents on an old picture or a fireplace and on what is more? All interesting items are worthy to be in the very center of attention. If each wall has its own coordination center, we will not only add texture to the room and give it an extra dimension, but also reward it with our individuality and sense of style.
One must adhere to a single style.
Matching something to one in interior design is like making someone engage in one particular passion. People are multifaceted beings, therefore, their homes must also be such, or at least get a chance. What should a traveler who has interesting artifacts from China, Japan, France and Greece do? Or a fan of art, which is equally expensive western and eastern direction. An attempt to force a person to follow one direction is as a result as ridiculous as a desire to make him live within a limited and narrowly focused space. And what, in fact, good reasons for avoiding the combination of different styles? It is noticed that the Japanese sculpture looks great with the classical French or antique.If the house is mixed, merge and impose different styles on each other, this will give the dwelling multifaceted and layered. Is there a better opportunity to express your own taste and make the house really unique?
In any space, the sofa should be made the focal point of space.
It is worth remembering that any space is unique and should not be tied to a sofa. It generally may not have anything to do with the rest of the design. Perhaps the most important piece of furniture in the house is a dining table, a cupboard with souvenirs or shelves with books. This role can play a sofa on a par with other, but not the best. It is worth making the choice of the center based on your own home and lifestyle. For example, for a young and active family it’s foolish to focus on a couch, on which nobody will be lying for a long time anyway. So why make it a center then? Yes, and instead of a sofa you can put a much more practical and fashionable couch. Often, the coordination center selects a large dining table, beyond which the whole family can gather.
You can not paint vintage furniture.
What is the basis for such a ban – remains unclear. Today, recycling of old furniture or upcycling is becoming more popular. This is the best way to resurrect the obsolete things, to give them a new life. In addition, it is also environmentally friendly. A repainting of old vintage furniture allows you to tap a piece from the past, giving it modern touches.
Dining chairs and tables should match each other.
Often I hear from designers that it is necessary to correlate the fabric with which the chairs and materials of the table itself are broken. But this is absolute fiction! For your chairs and tables you can use absolutely any and various textures and styles. But you should not forget about the general color decisions, choosing a dark or light tree. If you mix the elements from different shades of wood, then dilute it can be a one-color color cushions for sitting, or made of the same type of fabric. Just need to create a texture so that it does not ripple in her eyes.
There is a refrigerator to showcase children’s art.
You can often see how parents use magnets to fasten frivolous children’s work to the refrigerator. But is it not worthwhile to give children’s creativity more? Why not directly create a children’s art studio on the wall or even a gallery? And to the child it will be interesting, and for the space such decision will appear fresh. People sometimes rack their brains in trying to decorate their home with something bright, colorful. In fact, you can give it to the children’s imagination and colors.
It is necessary to leave gaps.
Indeed, white space causes an alarm. And although the spaces seem empty, gray, faceless, these places can be presented as corners of tranquility. As already mentioned, personality and textures are important elements for creating lush spaces. The same white color has many shades. So when decorating a white room, you can consider several shades of this color, which will keep the room warm and deep. Walls can be given the color of ivory, bed linen to leave white, and other elements to impart dark tones of white color. All in a complex it will give a feeling of calm and serenity. But also white should not be cold and sterile.
We must try to give up the rugs.
Yeah, wall carpets are gone, like the rest of the Soviet Union. But this does not mean that it is now principally to refuse these warm and beautiful products. In addition, carpets are an excellent opportunity to make floors in the home more textured and colored. Stratification of carpets adds room heat. With their help, the wooden floors soften, and the walls become deeper and more textured. Carpets seem to bind all pieces of furniture together with the room, creating a harmonious complex.But like any other fabric, staying within the chosen color scheme, you can safely experiment with models, textures and layers.
In each room you need to refer to a single basic color.
Indeed, you can add a bit of the primary color to each room, only who said that it’s mandatory? If you use different shades and colors of the same color, you can provide a good variety. Textures generally can act in such a way that any need to dilute them with color will be lost. If there is a desire to adhere to one tone, then with the help of just adding a different color to the composition, there will be a feeling of texture and depth. Otherwise, blindly following this myth will make the space too one-dimensional and flat.
