Select a colour scheme
Create the colour palette for your entire space. Neutral palette works well for walls given the extra decorating flexibility and easy accessories switching.
"Personality is what makes a space great. Make your own statement and have fun. The more you try, the more you will begin to see what works and what doesn’t".
Give your furniture some breathing room
Do not overcrowd your space with too much furniture rather invest in quality ones that will add the perfect touch.
Consider making your space seem taller by using quality low furniture.
Hang artwork at the right eye level
When hanging artwork, it is necessary to relate to human scale not structure scale. Thus, the mid-line should be at eye level.
For large rooms, you can go for one oversize piece or adopt the gallery style for smaller pieces. Please note that smaller pieces looks perfect together when they are not more than 4 inches apart.
Add layers of lighting
Professionals build layers of lighting to create interest, intrigue and variety.
Every room should have three kinds of lighting:
ambient, which provides overall illumination and often comes from ceiling fixtures;
task, which is often found over a kitchen island or a reading nook; and
accent, which is more decorative, highlighting, e.g. artwork.
Decorative mirrors can be used to add instant light to your living space. Hang mirrors on walls perpendicular to windows, not directly across from them.
Mix it up
Mix up patterns and textures, old and new, expensive and inexpensive. Varying colors and patterns can bring warmth and texture into your living space.
