Bold and sunny, yellow is a joyful color that is not all that common in home decor until now. Perhaps more associated with an old fashioned farmhouse kitchen, the sunny hue is making its way into all rooms of the house in small does, of course. With fashion, not everyone looks good in yellow, but that is definitely not the case in home decor. A pop of yellow as an accent color is unexpected and cheery, and farm more current that the usual red or orange.
Art is the easiest way to add style, personality and color to a space, and, if hung incorrectly, the easiest way to make things look off. Hanging a piece too high is probably the most common mistake, say designers. It should be hung at eye level. Art should be hung so that the middle of the piece is 57 to 60 inches above the floor. If ceilings are tall, you can go a little higher for balance. If you are trying to hang a grouping or gallery, consider the middle of your grouping as the center. Also, make sure you pit the right sized piece in the appropriate place. One or two small pieces above a sofa is not going feel right compared to a larger piece. Speaking of larger pieces, big art can be hung so that the frames bottom is 8 to 10 inches above the sofa back.
Unfortunately, there are many ways window treatments can go wrong. In most cases, they are more than just decorative. Window treatments also control privacy in your space as well as regulate the amount of light entering the space. Taking into consideration what you want from your window treatments will help you choose the right type. Too long, too short and hung incorrectly are also big boo boos that can happen with window treatments. The dining room below is a good example. Pleated panels can be drawn shut for privacy in the evening if desired, but because this is a dining room, privacy is not a must. To make the room look taller, the drapes and cornice boxes are mounted near the ceiling to add height.
Shape, textures and designs from other cultures have long been incorporated into home decor trends, and with todays more relaxed, casual interiors, global influences are even stronger. Accessories from other nations, combined with varied textiles and a generous touch of rattan, shells or jute are here to stay. Designers and travelers bring back treasures to use at home that are now becoming part and parcel of interior design.
