Interior design rules for 2014

Some say that rules are meant to be broken, but this is not always the case in the interior design realm. To achieve a stylish home, you're going to want to adhere to these helpful tips:

  • Center design scheme around a focal point: A focal point is a necessity in every room in your home. This feature helps create visual balance and can also be the basis of your color palette. The focal point you choose—whether that be a statement piece of furniture, vibrant rug or window coverings—is up to you!
  • De-clutter your space: Sometime homeowners go overboard when adding original flair to their home. Although showing off your personal style is essential, this doesn't mean you have to display every movie you own or decorate with your favorite color in each room. It's important to find balance throughout your home. You can start by spring cleaning—sorting through your excess clutter. If you need help with this task, call on our Milwaukee closet organization experts. 
  • Find the right lighting: Lighting can evoke an array of moods throughout your home. "Professionals build layers of lighting to create interest, intrigue and variety," writes contributor Judith Taylor. "In a room where everything is lit evenly, nothing stands out. Pick a focal point and perhaps a secondary focal point and highlight those. Add general ambient lighting and some lower lighting, like table lamps, for interest." To make use of natural right, be sure to select the appropriate window fashions from Bazaar Home Decorating Center.
