- Create a sense of harmony
Design with pairs, such as lamps or side tables. Smaller accessories can be placed to counterbalance and keep the room from becoming stagnant.
- Use contrasting textures to stimulate senses
Try combining the use of hard and soft surfaces- mix granite with un-honed travertine, hand scraped hard wood floors with silk or wool rugs, or a plush, down sofa with a lacquered table.
- Place mirrors to improve or enhance light
Strategically place a mirror opposite a window or chandelier to brighten a room, rather than adding more lamps.
- Select a color palette for the room’s desired mood
Use soft, muted colors in a bedroom for relaxation, and brighter colors in a living room to boost conversation.
- Fill rooms with a pleasant scent
Fragrance enhances the visual mood. If a design is of a cool color palette, pair it with mint or lime scented candles- Or for a romantic retreat in a master bedroom use lavender or jasmine.
