pay attention to small details

The importance of details in interior decoration

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When designing or decorating a home it’s always important to pay attention to small details. Of course, the other elements like the color theme or the big furniture are also important but it’s often the little details that make the difference between a bright and fun home and a beautiful but boring one.

When I say small or little details I don’t necessarily refer to the actual size. Such detail can also consist in the texture or color of the floors for example or in the way the pattern from the wallpaper matches the furniture. When you usually find yourself in the spot when you’ve done everything you had to, you’ve furnished and redecorated the house but there’s still something missing, that means it’s time to add some more details.

This means you can add some colorful pillows on the sofa for example. This would add some color and would also make the room seem more inviting. Also, you could choose some pictures of artwork to display on the walls. Flowers are also a common choice when it comes to decorations.In the end, the most important thing when decorating a home is to be careful at the way the materials combine and the way the colors and textures work together. Make sure they don’t clash and always try to see beyond the obvious.  {found on Alhvem}
