Decorating 101 – Everything You’ll Ever Need To Know

What’s the one thing that can make even the most monotonous of spaces feel totally attractive? It’s décor – the ability to pay attention to details. If you’re just an amateur who’s starting out on a mission to spruce up their homes, then here’s a list of basics that you should definitely know about. Let’s take a look:

 

1. Bold colours in small increments

First of all, you’ll have to add an adequate amount of contrast within the surroundings with the help of the décor. So, you have to choose bold colours and introduce them in small increments throughout the space. Using too many at once can make the space feel very garish, so a splash of red here with a balance of green there is how you have to go about this.

 

2. A colourful statement object

A vividly colourful statement object is an excellent way to make your spaces seem cohesive. The reason it has to be colourful is to ensure that it stands out amidst the surroundings. The bold yellow ZA featured in this living room is an excellent example of exactly what type of a statement accessory you can opt for while carrying out your décor.

 

3. An emphasis on lots of texture

It’s imperative that you always use a moderate amount of texture in your décor to make a better impact. It’s best not to go overboard – moderation is key. The sofa-area rug-puffy combination featured in this image is an excellent example of how you can play with so many textures while also respecting the overall colour scheme of your home interiors.

 

4. Visual hooks

One of the things that you must remember about successful decorating is that you have to create some interesting visual hooks within your spaces. They have to be very prominent so that they can anchor the whole space with their presence. Coffee tables, chandeliers, and statement walls are all good candidates for this idea.

 

5. Try to be wholesome

Balance is key when you’re trying to decorate wholesomely. You have to look at the bigger picture – how each accessory feels in contrast with the rest of the home. Only when you strike the perfect balance of ornaments throughout the space can you achieve an excellent visual balance.
