THE THREE BASIC GUIDELINES TO A SUCCESSFUL INTERIOR

When you see a beautiful interior that you really admire, observe the following;

1. Is is functional?

2. Does it express a mood?

3. Does it give you a sense of harmony?

When you are decorating or designing, these are the most important guidelines to follow.

Functional:

The function of the living room   ie---typically arranged for conversation.

                                           --there should be tables or a surface for each individual to set down a drink or

                                              plate.

                                        

Mood:

The room should express a mood that reflects your style, taste and needs.

                                                      example:  Modern? Sophisticated? Calming?

Harmony:

All the various aspects of the room must come together in harmony. It should be harmonious in color, quality, scale, and mood.

Basically, all the elements should work well together.

Thanks Wendy!

Every week I will be giving some type of design/decorating advice....but you gave me an idea. Perhaps I should incorporate staging advice (according to recent experiences). We are always learning!
