Interior Design 101 – A Beginner’s Guide

Although it may seem difficult, decorating your house is quite simple. You just have to know how you want to feel inside your living space and what you want to express. Learning to match textures and colours, although no longer a fundamental requirement, is something you achieve with practice. Here’s a beginner-friendly guide for you.

Everything is Treated with Good Intuitive Taste

Once you know what you want to convey and how you want to feel within your space, you must have a style that gives it unity and harmony. Today there is an infinite number of styles, such as country, rustic, chic, and modern, among many others. You can still be true to your unique style.

If there’s one thing you have to take into consideration, whatever your style of preference, it’s balance. Not overloading your space is paramount, because it will give you a sense of discomfort.

Distribute the weight and play with the focal point by mixing and matching everything from its texture to its colour or size.

It’s very important that you keep a variety and visual rhythm. An example of this might be having a certain colour be repeated on several ornaments or having lots of the same texture.

Colour and Patterns Define Us

Colour is often strongly associated with our personality or state of mind. Make sure you choose a colour that you can identify with and expresses your personality. Not all colours can apply to a small space. Keep space harmonyin mind.

You can have several colours in the same space, but at some point, these will have to come together.

Patterns are also a very important part of home decoration. You can play with them without the need for all to combine, but they must complement each other. To achieve this, keep in mind colour, size, and scale.

The Balance

It’s all in the balance. For example, if you have a sofa and you want to harmonize it with cushions, avoid overloading it. Three or four of them that combine in and vary in size is enough. Avoid filling the sofa with cushions to such an extent that your guests cannot sit on them.

Many stores in the market offer excellent items at a good price. If you are on a budget, focus on decorating your space with basics, such as a good sofa, a nice lamp, and a functional but stylish coffee table to tie the room.

Make sure you decorate your place with pieces that will bring it to life, as they don’t have to be very expensive. You can complement expensive pieces with inexpensive ones, as long as you keep the balance between colour and texture.
