Heres Why Interior Decorating Makes A Statement About You
Interior decorating is that medium which can make your closed spaces convey to the observer a lot about you and your lifestyle through strategic use of elements which range from the visual (color, lighting, form) to the tactile (surface, shape, texture) to the auditory (noise, echo).
The more alluring the result, the more the aesthetic, practical and technical appreciation for these elements the designer must have. He or she must understand how people use and respond to these elements, not just individually but as the elements interact with one another.
Not really! For at the bottom, all one needs is to know what one wants to show off to the world from the precincts of ones space. That is why home interior decorating becomes an easier task since one can identify with its needs more easily.
Original ideas can make a significant difference in your Interior Decorating plans.
Ideally, one should work from a total interior design plan. However, don't be hesitant! Try and be responsive to our own creative "hunches." When decorating your home, don't just go piecemeal from room to room. Work up a plan for the entire home, including budget and timetable. As you go along, you can be on the lookout for interior decorating ideas. Believe me these make a lot of difference. For instance, pictures should be hung at eye level; accessories are noticed better in odd-numbered groups - it's just a matter of balance; paint can be used to minimize structural defects and accentuate positive features. And most important - do not fear to experiment. After all, "Home" was not built in a day!
