Decorating and not sure how to start?
It's not easy to decorate a home. You know exactly what we're talking about. You have to find the right colors, styles, prices, and most of, decor pieces that showcase who you are! Where do you start? What do you need to consider? Well, we have a few suggestions! If you are one of the few lucky ones that have been blessed with a great eye for decorating and design, then feel free to start shopping now!
BUT - if you're like the rest of us and and weren't born with that kind of creativity, allow us to give you a few quick tips to get you started. First, follow the rule of odd numbers. What does that mean? Have you ever heard of the "rule of thirds" in photography? Here's the gist of it: the details and objects that are arranged in your decor should be grouped in odd numbers because that tends to be more appealing to the eye. Second, consider your room's focal point and build a decor strategy out of that. Most rooms have a built-in focal point, but when you don't have anything to start with, consider your focal point being a large piece of furniture. That's a great way to start!
Lastly, consider your spacing. Spacing issues are the number one concern for most new decorators. For example, keep at least 15" between your coffee table and sofa; or, when hanging wall art, keep it all at eye-level, which is typically 60" off the ground.
