Decorating your space
Texture is key to creating a successful design scheme, a plain room can be styled many different ways adding a silky-cushions or having a feature wall can liven up and add texture to the room. To create a more luxurious space a quick and easy way is by adding pillows and throws over beds – it can also add comfort.
Natural light not only benefits our health and well-being but also affects how colours appear. A room which is south facing will experience the maximum amount of light whereas rooms facing north will be slightly darker. Therefore, before decorating always check the light in you room, paint colours can seem a completely different hue in one room to another.
Nail the floorplan
It is important for your space to be functional, ensuring that there is enough room to move around without having to stretch too far for a cup of coffee or making sure you’re not shouting across the room to have a conversation.
Consider other ways to add colour and life to your rooms such as adding plants, or a well-placed side table. Or consider things such as smells so add a nice diffuser. These small things can make a huge difference.
