We hate to break this to you but the best interior designers in the world don't follow a rule book. It's just about looking inside-out for inspiration and using a bit of imagination. Yes, we all have the creativity; it's just waiting to be explored. And as for inspiration, it's all around you in the form of nature, art, colours, music, etc. Develop your own quirky style with these simple tips.
Paint can wait: We know the obvious thing that comes to mind while redecorating is to choose a paint colour. But wait, first have a good look at the space, understand the light that rooms get and then choose a colour, accordingly. What looks good in your current home might not in your new one. Also, the colour has to match your furniture, rugs, upholstery, etc. So, it's best to keep this decision for the end.
Place the art at the right height: Follow the gallery and museums rule here, they hang artwork so that the midline (centre) of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. (The average human eye level is 57 inches.) And you should do the same for an aesthetic look.
Don't follow themes: Popular themes very often lack individuality. This is where you put your creativity to play. Stay away from popular clichés. Close your eyes and imagine a space you would like to call your own, incorporate those elements and you will have a space you adore.
Choose a star: Having a multi-star cast works wonders for a film but the same does not hold true of interior design. Here, you need to pick a single star and allow it all the limelight. It can be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, an art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom. Just pick a statement piece that stands out.
Create a personal space that has you coming back and more importantly, makes the house feel like a home. A kind of space you would like to hide in after a hard day's work. Stylish homes are instinctive, so, follow your instincts.
