First, understand the basic tricks and principles of decoration. Once you get this, you can light up your entire home with the wow factor.
Tricks, Tips And Principles Of Home DecorationBalance. Like everything in life, your home design should create a sense of balance. To achieve this, you have to equalize the approximate visual weight of objects. Take note of colors when creating this balance. Remember lighter colors are visually lighter than their darker counterparts. Symmetry is important for formal (and boring) design. Split the space you want to decorate into two sides that mirror each other.
For a more modern approach, go asymmetrical but maintain the balance.
Rhythm and HarmonyDesign should be like music with ebb and flow, patterns and repetitions, contrast and softness. You can achieve this easily by using a color for your cushions, flowers, pillows. Pick it up in a painting and echo it in a rug. You get the point.
Everlasting Roses. Create The Magical Floral ExperienceFlowers are an all important aspect of home decoration. They make a statement, induce and create the all important harmony, and they create focal points. Flowers can turn a mundane place into something quite magical. To add a splash of pigment, you can throw in some orchids, hydrangeas, or hyacinth and make an instant statement.
Add The X Factor With Everlasting RosesThis is your centerpiece, the main focal point. The gaze will keep returning here. This is your wowzer. Back in the days, designers would place expensive furniture like an oak coffee table, or a painting. Now if you look up Pinterest, the modern trend Bible - they are flower arrangements.
One flower that has captured the imagination from London, to NewYork to Sydney is the everlasting roses, aka the Infinity roses. These are real roses, handpicked at their prime from the foothills of Ecuador - and embalmed in their youth to create a magical fairytale experience. When design incorporates magic, it becomes captivating. Movies use this all the time. You can enhance the fairytale experience a notch further with appropriate music. The whole ambiance transforms. People seem to enjoy themselves more, and find themselves more at ease. Remember what we said in the beginning. Your living space decor should be like a scene from a movie. It has to create the atmosphere.
The most popular everlasting rose is the one that comes in a glass dome with fairy lights (I know it's like Beauty And the Beast). You can place this on a coffee table, or even the fireplace mantle. Remember, wherever you place, it will become the centerpiece.
