A great interior planning tip is to start going to more yard sales and thrift stores. You’d be amazed at some of the unique things that you can find at these avenues versus the typical places like Ikea. You might come across a great end table or beautifully decorated vase.
When using more than one color of paint in a single room, keep the combination of colors in the same family. In other words, a red can be paired with a pale orange or a blue with a nice violet. Colors that are closely located on the rainbow really complement each other, rather than clashing.
If you have a favorite painting, you may want to use it as the focal point of your room. This way, it will draw the most attention. Pick your rooms color scheme to match your painting so that it your painting will be accented by the entire room. This is a great way to make that painting stand out!
Add flowers to any room. If you are looking for a cost effective way to perk up just about any room in your home, bring in some flowers. Either gather flowers from your own garden or pick some up, place them in a nice vase and place them on a night stand, book shelf or end table.
A great way to enhance a room’s look is through the addition of area rugs. But, if you are going to do this, you need to make sure that the size of the rug is carefully considered. For bigger rooms, be sure the rug is big enough so it doesn’t look odd in the room. On the contrary, large area rugs should not be used in small rooms.
Since you have a head full of design ideas now it’s time to get started on them. The best way to improve your skills is to actually start doing the work. Remain positive and it should work out.
