QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK BEFORE DECORATING YOUR HOUSE..
Are you going to decorate your first home and don't know where to start? Or have you already decorated it and have verified over time that you didn't get it right? Do not worry, we are here to help you and we have prepared some questions with which you will solve practically all your decorative doubts.
WHAT I NEED?
Each project is a world. That is why the first thing you have to do is think about the use that will be given to the space that you are going to design and plan it taking this into account. For example, if you project the dining room for a family that always eats at home, they will need a large table and if it is for a person who always eats out, a simple bar will be more than enough.
HOW DO I MOVE IN MY DAY TO DAY?
The distribution is one of the basic keys to have a perfect result. Keep in mind to allow natural light and create a fluid circulation, removing all the obstacles that get in the way.
WHAT MATERIALS DO I CHOOSE?
Once you are clear about the use that will be given to a space, choose the materials that best suit it. For example, in an entrance it is better to place an easy-to-maintain floor instead of a carpet, which may be more advisable in a bedroom that we want to give warmth.
WHAT COLORS DO I WANT?
One of the best tools to give coherence to an interior is the color palette. Choose between 3 or 5 colors and make sure to use them throughout the room in a balanced way. The results will surprise you.
HOW DO I MAKE A SPACE MORE INTERESTING?
Once we have chromatic coherence in an interior, we need a variety of textures so as not to fall into monotony and boredom. Select pieces of wood, natural fibers, stones, with shiny, rough, smooth, metallic finishes, cozy textiles... Plants cannot be missing either.
WHAT ATMOSPHERES WILL I WANT TO CREATE THROUGHOUT THE DAY?
If natural light is important, artificial light is not far behind either. Plan the points of light to be able to create different atmospheres depending on the needs of each moment. Always place a general ceiling lamp and other support lamps on the tables for more intimate lighting. An enhancer can also be highly advisable.
WHAT DO I WANT TO GIVE PROTAGONISM TO?
The line between a bare interior and the "antique store" look is a fine one. Find the balance between full and empty spaces. For example, if you want to place a sculptural lamp or wallpaper with personality, do not place other pieces that fight for prominence and end up overwhelming.
HOW DO I REFLECT MY PERSONALITY?
A home (and also a commercial premises or a restaurant) is more interesting when it feels lived in and does not look like a furniture catalogue. Do not forget to place pieces of art that you are passionate about, family and travel memories and photographs that make you happy and express who lives in this space.
