The other way to think about this is decorating in layers. Take a look at the room below. Yes it has a formal air, but it is certainly not stuffy. The sofa on the right has a wooden frame and is very formal. The armchair across the room also has wood, but it is white, and the second sofa is more casual with no visible wood at all. The coffee table and side tables are all different and not formal, yet they work well with the grand chandelier and gold framed portraits on the walls.
Whether your decor is a design driven collection of items or a set of pieces you have acquired in while traveling. When it comes to decor and knickknacks, less is definitely more. It is perfectly fine and very desirable to display some decor and mementos to add personality to keep your space from feeling like staged space. That said, you want to be judicious because too many knick knacks equals a cluttered feeling. Do not feel like you have to throw some out, just change up the display as you would with any collection.
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.
The votes are in on fake flowers, and the world is split down the middle. Most designers say that obviously fake flowers and plants are a design do not, but many people love silk flowers for lots of reasons. If you have to have silk flowers, make sure they are new and as real looking as possible. Otherwise, try adding potted plants that flower, using real flowers whenever possible, or cutting branches and greenery from your yard to display. Even if you do not have a green thumb, low maintenance plants like cacti and succulents can be a good choice instead of faux flora.
