“Focal Point” is important to remember – where do your eyes go to when you enter a room? This can be planned out in the design phase, whether it is an accent chair, “wow” light fixture, attention grabbing accessory, or accent wall – it can really be just about anything that stands out and draws the eye. The important part to remember is to keep everything else transitional around it as to tie it altogether, but allow for unique pieces to stand out.
“Furniture placement” is very important step in the design process as it can take a decent looking space and make it amazing! Sometimes spacing the furniture out a bit more can allow for the space to have “breathing room” and this can help make the room look larger, allow for the nicer pieces of furniture to showcase themselves and create an easier space to move around in. Higher-end homes often have lots of features about the home to show off and you do not want to take away from that. Remember area rugs, end tables and accessories are a great way to tie pieces together and help create attractive vignettes in the home.
“Paint Color” is a very important part of the entire picture as well. Whether you have a small space or large space, Ocean view or Mountain View, the color of the paint can really set the tone for the space and help take any size home up to classy and special. Whether you want to make a bold statement with your paint or keep it neutral so it helps keep the space transitional there are some simple paintings rules to help out. Dark paint will make a space look smaller and light paint will help make it look bigger, accent walls will draw the eye and good quality paint makes a difference. The most obvious rule is regardless of the paint color you choose, the color will directly impact everything in the room. So make sure before you start your design process you are in love with the color on your walls and in beautiful higher end homes it is an easy way to make them look well put together and maintain their high values.
