A great way to liven up an otherwise boring or complicated space is to create a point of focus in the room. This focal point will become the highlight of the space, and everything else that’s in the room will work to support the focal point. Focal points to think about working around include fireplaces, windows, artworks and stately pieces of furniture.
When choosing a color palette for your room, use no more than three colors. When decorating, follow the 60-30-10 rule. 60% of the room should be a dominant color, 30% a secondary color, and 10% an accent color. More than 3 colors can make the room start to look busy.
Always remember to enhance lighting whenever possible in any room. When designing a windowless room, use light shades of paint so the room does not look cave-like.
Have a theme in mind. Is there a specific color scheme you rather enjoy? Do you have a fondness for retro furniture? Deciding on a theme before you even begin your planning phase can save you a lot of time and effort. Make sure you know what you’re going for before you start planning for it.
