5 Home Decorating Tips

1). Move Seating Away from the Walls

Floating furniture away from the wall creates a more intimate seating area. Resist the urge to push your sofa up against the wall!

2). Choosing Colors

Colors from a single family blend effortlessly without being matchy-matchy. Pick a color you love and stick with its variations of that color. If you like green, for example, paint walls and choose curtains in a rich khaki. Punch up the palette with a brighter sofa. Choose accessories like a lime green patterned rug, featuring different shades of green and brown, and a yellow green throw. Staying near the same color family makes it easier to pick pieces that when put all together is pleasing to the eye.

4). Wall Art Height & Family Photos

When hanging wall art do so about 8 to 12 inches above the table to form an eye-pleasing connection between the items. To complete the effect, make sure that some of the accessories on the tabletop are tall enough to overlap the artwork, helping the art and accessories appear as a single unit.

Keep smaller framed family photos on a side table clustered together. Smaller photos hanging on a wall can get lost in the shuffle.



5). Coffee tables offer lots of space to show off your style. To keep objects from looking as if they just lying around use trays to group similar items, such as ceramics and pillar candles. Try clustering candles of different sizes and colors in one tray and bowls or vases in another. Spice up a stack of books by topping with a vessel filled with found objects.
