When it comes to area rugs, bigger is indeed better. Choosing one that is too small is among the most common mistakes homeowners make. If you are using a rug in a living space, it has to be big enough to reach at least the front legs of every item of furniture in the grouping. In a dining room, it has to extend far ought past the edges of the table so that when guests are seated, all four legs of the chair are on the rug. This means that before you order up a rug on sale, measure the area you need to cover so that you do not buy the wrong size. The correct rug anchors the space and visually pulls all the elements together into a cohesive grouping. A small area rug in front of the sofa or under the coffee table definitely would not cut it and your room will always look like something is off, even if you can not immediately identify why it feels that way.
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.
With interior design, it is entirely possible to have too much of a good thing, especially where furniture is concerned. Just as important as the pieces you put into a space is the sense of space itself. A room overcrowded with furniture will never feel spacious. All your pieces should be in an appealing arrangement and fulfill your needs with regard to function and comfort. Do not let furniture impede traffic flow through the space or restrict movement. If a room ever feels cramped, remove a piece or two of furniture and see if it eases the feeling in the space. Rearranging the pieces in the space might also solve the problem. This Bamax dining room has enough furniture yet it feels open and airy.
Neutral palettes have been a trend for quite some time, and that has led to quite a bite of boring decor. By playing safe and sticking with neutral furnishings, walls and accessories, homeowners have created a wide range of uninteresting spaces. This does not mean that you have to paint all the walls a vivid color and upholster everything in bright prints. Adding a single wall of an accent color can add a real punch to room, even when the rest of the decor is neutral. Do not be afraid of adding color to a room — it adds punch. Incorporating color can take many forms: a colorful rug, a vibrant array of accessories, bold artwork or saturated textiles. Pick your favorite color and let it brighten a space in your home.
