Mirrors are a decorator's best friend, and with good reason — a well-placed mirror makes the most of a room's natural light, enhances views, opens a small space and adds oomph to decor. The key lies in pairing the right mirror with the right location to maximize its decor-uplifting potential.

Ignore all principles in favor of creativity.

Having some guidelines gives people a good starting point for furnishing and decorating their home, even if some of them aren’t practical for a particular space.

Go with something personal that makes you smile and, above all, is comfortable. Overly designed rooms don’t really translate in modern life. A pillow collection and an art arrangement that are seemingly haphazard create a dressed-down look with plenty of style.

OPTIMIZE YOUR BATHROOM STORAGE

Clutter can be controlled in the bathroom if there is adequate storage. An in-room linen closet can easily hold more than extra towels and beauty supplies if you take an inventory of what you want to store and plan accordingly.

Take out everything you don't use. It is suggested that labeling a specific shelf in the linen closet for each person who uses the bathroom and installing pullout shelves so users can access the contents in the back of the closet is an option worth considering

Bulky items like folded towels and stacks of toilet tissue will fit on the lower shelves. Smaller items like cotton balls and beauty supplies can fill baskets on shelves at eye level.

A two-tier lazy Susan, often relegated to kitchen cabinets, can be used in the bathroom linen closet to hold nail polish, small makeup bottles and creams.

A well-designed vanity outfitted with drawers rather than cabinets will hold more stuff. Cabinets are cheaper but drawers are more efficient. We suggest using a vanity with two sinks in both the master bath and the guest bathroom that often doubles as the main bath for other occupants of the house.

Stacks of drawers of varying depths will hold hair dryers, curling irons, electric shavers and electric toothbrushes neatly, keeping the counter-top free of clutter. Installing acrylic dividers inside the drawers will keep smaller items like makeup, nail clippers and hair clips neatly organized.

But not all bathrooms are created equal. In a powder room, a place where storage is often minimal, you can make a style statement by installing a pedestal sink or a smaller vanity that does more than hide the plumbing pipes and hold a few cleaning supplies. Pedestal sinks do not generally work in a master bath or guest bath as they offer no storage.

IMPORTANCE OF LIGHTING IN INTERIOR DECORATION

Lighting is an important element of home design

The lighting in a home changes the mood of a room just as it does the perceived size of a room. Placement and type are important aspects of interior design, and they work in conjunction with colour selections, room size, availability of natural light and furniture selection. The elements that come together when the right lighting is achieved transform a room into a seamless combination of functionality and style.

Colour Management

The use of lighting can add to or subtract from the overall colours of a room or from only those surfaces the light is meant to enhance. Darker colours make a room feel smaller and cramped, while light-coloured walls do the opposite. The illusion of space is defined by light reflected off of the surfaces of the walls. Some types of lighting help with this illusion by further illuminating the walls. In addition, directional lighting, such as a track light, can soften the wall colours. There is also recessed can lighting, which has a soft, downward glow that illuminates the floors, not walls. This is opposed to lights hung from the centre of the room, which provide ambient illumination, or wall lighting. In both cases, this can affect how light or dark a coloured section can appear.

Directional Lighting

The lighting in a room either provides illumination for the entirety of the room, or it highlights very specific elements. Track lighting is the perfect example of positional lighting. Hung from the ceiling, the adjustable necks and lamps can be pointed at specific elements, such as a wall painting, the vase of flowers on an entryway table or the bar top or kitchen island. Consider mounting them on the walls, also. Special picture and mirror frames also have built-in lighting to highlight specific areas on a wall. Recessed lighting can be used in floors and ceilings to create vertical beams of light as opposed to an overall glow from central light fixtures hanging from a ceiling.

Functionality

One major role of lighting in the interior setting is functionality. Lighting needs to serve a purpose, or it simply wastes electricity. Chandeliers are not only used in large, open foyers, entryways and rooms because of their centrally themed placement but also because they provide excellent illumination for the room. Wall lights add length and size, visually, to an entryway hall, as well as light the way. Consider the style of lighting you want to ensure you get the best directional or luminescent type for the setting. Look into task-specific lighting for desks and other work areas where functionality is more important than overall room illumination.

Space

Both natural and man-made lighting help with the illusion of space. For a darker room, find ways to bring in more full-spectrum natural light. If the room does not have sufficient lighting, it will feel cramped. This is worsened by close-proximity furniture arrangements, such as coffee table, end table, sofa, chair and love seat combinations in a smaller setting. Corner lamps, wall sconces and centrally hanging lights on the ceiling help brighten a room if natural lighting is not available and help create a visually larger space. This applies to any setting -- home or office. Natural lighting is preferred above man-made lighting because it shows off colours better and adds to the visual space of a room by bouncing off reflective surfaces. Consider skylights or large windows if you want more natural light, or use sheer drapes and curtains to allow the maximum amount of light from your current windows.

Tip 7
Create a focal point.

There are leading roles and supporting cast members in any production. The same holds true in design. Choose your star and make it the focal point to anchor a room. Allow other items to take a secondary role. Don’t ask everything to have a leading role; it will just result in visual noise.

Your focal point might be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, a mantel and art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom. Whatever it is, choose something that will draw attention. Fireplaces and lighting can work together as a collective focal point, bringing your eye right to the center of the composition and anchoring it there

Tip 6
Edit your collectibles.

Don’t hang on to a piece that just doesn’t fit. Whether you bought it or your great-aunt Sally gave it to you, If it’s not working for you, then find a new home for it (maybe in a different room).
Balance is almost necessary. It reminds me of something Coco Chanel said about accessorizing: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”
In design, know when to stop.

Tip 5
Resist the urge to be too theme-y.

Select a palette, artwork and materials that give The Effect without drawing on the obvious clichés.

Tip 4
Know how to arrange furniture on a rug.

There are basically three ways you can arrange furniture on your rug.

1- All on: The rug is large enough to place all of the furniture legs on top of it. This creates a more luxurious feel. For this, bigger is better. Just be sure to leave at least 12 to 18 inches of floor surface on all four sides of the rug’s borders.

2- All off: If you have a small room, keeping all legs off the rug is a great cost-effective choice. You don’t want to pick too small a rug, though, or it may look insignificant, like an afterthought. The rug should appear as though it could touch the front legs of each of the seating pieces. This approach is best suited when you’re layering a pattern over a larger solid or textured rug.

3--Front on: Put just the front feet of all your seating pieces on the rug to tie the arrangement together visually and create a well-defined space while lending a feeling of openness

Tip 3
Hang artwork at the right height.

Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline (center) of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. (The average human eye level is 57 inches.) And you should do the same.

In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember: It needs to relate to human scale, not the structure’s scale.

If you’re not sure, take a picture. It’s remarkable how much a photo can reveal. Print it out or use Photoshop or an app to draw on the photo. This can give you a sense of whether a larger or smaller piece of art is needed or a tall plant might be best to fill a vacant spot.

Tip 2

Carefully select your paint colours

There are thousands of paint colours with various tints, tones and shades. And each one looks different from home to home, because light sources vary, meaning what looks good in your current home might not in your new one. You want the colour that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else. You can pick that colour only if your stuff is actually inside your home.

Tip 1
Give your furniture some breathing room.

Resist overcrowding a room. Gracious living means space to maneuver with ease. This is really great news if you are working with a tight budget. You don’t need to fill up a space with lots of furniture. Spend more of your budget on fewer but better-quality pieces, and your room will look better than if it’s stuffed to the gills with flea market finds.Let your furniture stand out so they don’t have to fight for attention

ADD DEPTH WITH DECORATIVE FINISHES

Transform flat, dull walls into interesting and personal spaces with subtle or dramatic visual texture and broken color. Burnished mineral/metal finishes and layered colored glazes add depth. Some examples of softly reflective metals are mica, copper, pewter, bronze and, of course, antiqued silver and gold.

WALK INTO ANOTHER ROOM

Consider walls as planes of color, and see how they interact when viewing one next to the other in adjacent rooms. Approach it like a composition: You're in one room, but you're going to see a piece of another room through it. So as you're choosing colors, consider how they will flow from room to room to create your picture.

FOLLOW THE COLOUR WHEEL

A small color wheel is a great reference tool for modifying and intensifying two or more colors. For example, red and green, which are complementary (opposite) colors, are most intense when used together. You may be surprised at how many combinations function beautifully together, and you may even become attracted to entirely new color palettes. The color wheel also illustrates the visual temperature of a color. Draw a line from the yellow-green mark on the color wheel all the way down to the red-violet; you'll see that all the colors on the left are warm and the colors on the right are cool.

PLAY UP MONOCHROMATIC SCHEMES

Think one color is boring? Create bold or subtle variations within one color group with contrasting paint finishes. For example, use closely related colors, or try a single color in different finishes, for walls and trim in one space.

For an accent color, select a warmer (more toward reds) or cooler (more toward blues) color to complement your main color group. For a quieter ambience, make sure your colors are not extremely bright. White or an off-white tint can be a striking accent when used as trim with a monochromatic color group.

CHOOSE DIFFERENT PAINT FINISHES

A single color used on walls and trim takes on new significance when applied in different finishes. For example, wall and trim colors can remain the same hue, but use an eggshell (matte and less reflective) finish on walls and a satin or semigloss on trim. The color will appear slightly different on each surface. It's a good way to create a cohesive look in rooms with many windows and doors, and relatively little wall area.

TIPS FOR CHOOSING PAINT COLOURS

THINK ABOUT YOUR MOOD

When selecting a color, consider the mood of a room. In a bedroom do you want the feeling to be restful and soothing or dramatic and intimate? Soft, cool colors and neutrals usually create a quieter feeling while stronger colors are for drama.

Do you want a dining area to feel sociable and stimulating or appear formal and quiet? Warmer, contrasting and somewhat brighter colors add to a sociable atmosphere; deeper blue-greens and neutrals will give a more formal ambiance.

Do you want kid's rooms to create an active and exciting energy or an orderly and restful feeling? Be careful not to overstimulate your children with intensely bright hues. You may not know it, but some brighter colors can lead to unrest and irritability.

PAY ATTENTION TO LIGHTING

The reason why paint stores have light boxes for you to test paint chips:
Natural daylight shows the truest color;
Incandescent lighting brings out warm tones and yellows;
Fluorescent lighting casts a sharp blue tone.

So, a strong color might be too bright and overpowering when used on all walls or next to a large window, but it might be effective when used as an accent wall with indirect light

LEARN THE COLOUR TERMS

It helps to understand the terminology used to describe color.
Hue is what we call a color. Red is the hue; blue is the hue.
The value of the hue is how light or dark it is.
Saturation refers to how dominant the hue is. As we go from red to pink, the red hue becomes less dominant.
Intensity is the brilliance of the color. The pure colors such as red are more intense than the combined colors such as yellow-green. A stronger intense color usually has a more dominant hue.

If you want a more active space, consider introducing stronger, more intense color. Even if you want a light-colored room, choose colors that are slightly more saturated than off-white or light pastel. Very light color can feel bright and stark when it appears on all surfaces in a room. However, two or more medium-light, closely related pastel colors can create a luminous effect when used in the same room.

TEST YOUR COLOUR CHOICE

Boost your confidence by testing colors on poster board or large areas of a wall. Don't be afraid to go beyond your comfort zone: Consider strong, vivid colors or soft, deep neutrals like chocolate brown or olive green as main or accent colors. Or add drama with a stronger color on the ceiling. Tinted ceilings can dramatically change the whole look of a room.

Choosing Paint Colours.

We’ve all been there.
You decide to paint a room, and weeks later, your walls are a crazy quilt of paint swatches. You’ve flipped through rooms online and virtually painted your room online. You’ve asked your friends and your plumber for their opinions. You are still afraid to make the wrong choice. It’s okay. Clients typically try three to five paint colours before deciding on their final selection. Of course, many try even more.
Perhaps everyone should accept the fact that painting a room is sort of like becoming an artist. Painting is a process, whether you are agonizing over the colour selection or actually brushing the paint on the walls. You are the artist of your own environment, You shouldn’t be afraid to experiment and then adjust and tweak. Nervous homeowners can find help from Interior decorators, designers, architects and colour consultants,
We find that consumers need the voice of affirmation that the colour they chose is the right one, We can narrow them down together. We want to help jump-start your painting projects. Just give us a buzz.
