Mixing it up with Interior Design

February 3, 2011

It may be easy to come up with ideas for redecorating your house, but the total cost of making the changes may make you think twice.  Costs aside, many design questions may come to mind, such as: What would go best with this?  Will I have to change other things in my home to match this?  Will I like it in the end?  The best thing to do when redecorating is to plan ahead and then, shop around for the materials you will need.  Here are some tips to think about when you are planning to redecorate your home.

When planning to redecorate your home, keep these modern rules in mind for mixing it up. Interior design is dynamic and ever-changing, so try to keep up!When looking at patterns and paint, go with something you are most comfortable with.  Scale is important to think about when looking at patterns.  You don’t want all your patterns to be scaled similarly, so choose them in small, medium and large.  Scaling down your furniture also serves to create a larger floor.  There are different types of patterns you can add such as stripes, plaids, checks, floral, and organics among countless others.  Start by comparing different patterns until you find a pattern you will enjoy for years to come.  When you are piecing everything together, make sure there is balance throughout the room.  You want your eyes to be able to flow through the room.  If you keep your decorating at your comfort level, you will love it.  The way you decorate doesn’t have to be straight from a magazine.  Let your creativity flow!
