Yes, there was a day when matching furniture sets were all the rage, but that is definitely not the case now. There is nothing that screams, I do not know what to do, than a match bedroom or living room set. Mixing and matching is the way to get a comfortable and stylish room. Of course, this does not mean that the room should be a random jumble of mismatched pieces. There should be one dominant style that account from 75 to 80 percent of a room and the remainder can be anything else.
A lampshade does more than just soften the light emanating from the bulb: It balances the height of the lamp and gives it enough visual heft to make it an important design element. Nothing looks worse than a lamp with a shade that is far too small for its base. According to Architectural Digest, there is a simple formula to make sure you have the right size lampshade for a table lamp: Measure the base of your lamp as well as the height. Whatever shape of shade you choose, it should be twice as wide as the base, and about one-third of the lamps total height. The shade should also reflect the style of the base. When it comes to floor lamps, the shade should be at least 18 inches and Pooky notes that the larger and more open your room, the larger the floor lampshade can be.
Geometrics are a great home decor trend for adding patterns to a room, especially if you are not a fan of florals and are weary of the ubiquitous chevrons. The various shapes have a pop art feel and will add a graphic jilt to a space, whether you choose a large rug or just a few well placed accessories.
Balance in your furnishings is approached in two ways. The first is the pieces themselves. No matter what the style of the decor, you want a balance among the pieces to keep if from feeling too heavy or crowded. This living room is a good example because the sofa has a very hefty feel because the thick frame sits directly on the ground. The occasional tables on both sides are leggy, which balances out the heavier sofa. The style of the table lamp and the multi-light floor lamp also contribute a lighter feeling. The second way to consider balance in a space concerns the placement of furnishings and accessories as well as the size of the room. Big, heavy furnishings will never feel right in a small space and vice versa. How your furniture feels in the space in relation to the doorways, windows and any other architectural elements that are present is also key, and this comes down to placement. To remedy this, it usually takes just a little re arrangement.
