No one is immune from mistakes, but it's best toThey learn before the start of any global action. Everyone doing repairs needs to present their room in advance and understand what can go wrong Jackie Hernandez - a self-taught decorator who holds a bachelor's degree in biology, a military officer rank of the Air Force and six years of experience as a manager in an IT company. But when she started to decorate and design, she realized that it was her path. After a short time, in 2014, she founded a school of decorators, where about a hundred students are currently studying. Jackie leads her blog and is ready to share a rich life experience. Including deconstructing the main, in her opinion, errors in interior design. Error 1.Everything in the same style If the room has a single stylistic composition, it looks rather sad. In order to somehow update the interior and breathe new colors into it, it makes sense to mix things from different collections, and the space will gain e. If this is an armchair or ottoman, there will be no problems in removing or replacing them. But if the matter concerns massive interior items, then the situation is much more complicated, and it is better to foresee such a scenario in advance. Mistake 2.Flaunt Collections If you are an avid collector, you should not plan your interior so that the collection of treasures will be displayed and dominate the built space. Perhaps your guests or relatives will not be very pleased to dine or just be near a collection of masks, insects, stones of different sizes, children's shoes or dried insects. Mistake 3.Pairwise arrangement Observance of clear proportions and principles of pairing will not lead to good visual perception either. Jackie Hernandez advises to arrange objects so that they are not grouped in an even number. It is best to take 3 or 5 objects of different heights, and this will look the most advantageous. Why not the same height - more on that later. Error 4.All the same height There is no interest in an interior that adheres to the same level. Linearity, clear edges, strict observance of contours - now it is not fashionable. But if you vary the height, you get a memorable and, most importantly, a very individual interior. Error 5.Ignoring the "rule of thirds" This rule, which came from the field of photography, says: the most interesting image will be only if the objects are divided into three zones, equal in size, but different in filling. Look at your room from the entrance, or best of all, film. If three even horizontal and vertical lines dividing the frame into 9 rectangles divide the entire composition into parts that are not similar to each other, then everything is fine. But if the "rule of thirds" is not respected, then the eye will catch on this visual defect. Error 6.Empty spaces under consoles The author of the top 10 errors admits that this point is the most insignificant. But nevertheless, the interior will really look unfinished if there are large empty spaces, consoles or other overall furniture. It will be more functional, for example, to put a basket under the table, and put a small bench under the sofa. Error 7.An overabundance of accessories The line between good, sophisticated style and a pile of unnecessary items is very thin. Little decor - the interior seems incomplete. A lot - there is a feeling of turmoil. It is best to focus on one large accessory rather than a bunch of small ones. Error 8.Many small things This problem is partially the same as the previous one. But the truth is, with a large number of small things of absolutely any purpose, only thoughts of disorder creep into my head, nothing more. Error 9.Artificial flowers There is no point in them, they cause unpleasant associations, and storing them as a decoration will bring nothing but dust accumulation. It is better to decorate the house with living plants and use natural elements - stones, shells, dried herbs. Or come up with another solution for interior design. Error 10.Lack of semantic load and personality If there were no common ideas when planning the premises, it is immediately obvious. And if the interior is not yet diluted with personal things - gifts, frames, decorations - then it looks completely inanimate and artificial. Breathe more individual traits, dear to you, into your interior - and you will see how much it will transform! But do not forget about paragraph 8.
