Interior Design Tips: From Sheepskin Rugs to Modern Lighting

When rebuilding your home and interior, there are certain factors that are very important. You also don't have to spend a lot of money; Vintage furniture can look even better than new chairs and offices, and less accents and details can do much for the overall image of a room. Read on to learn more.

Let's start from the bottom up. Something nice home has a rug to tie different design elements together. If you go for a more modern style, consider sheepskin bags. If it is a bedroom, a sheepskin thrown over the foot of your bed can also add a certain panache and coziness that you otherwise lack. If you shoot for a more traditional design, you may prefer an oriental design as a room base. Remember that a carpet looks good on a wooden floor or a taupe mat. Once you have chosen a carpet around which you can build your room, you can start buying accessories.

Think of textures. You want variety, so if you have wood, think velvet and other warm fabrics. If you have steel, add glass is a good idea. Draper over curtains or finer fabrics like silk, satin or lace light in a breeze, giving a more organic feel to your home. Another organic element that every room should have is a plant. Wide shiny leaves, or thin, sharp dots change the feel of a room from tropical to desert-like. Vibrating greens add decor and act as an air purifier, which prevents the rooms from becoming known.

Lighting is also important. Buying lamps to create shadows gives a sense of cozyness to any room. Place them on the end tables, or if they are floor lamps behind large furniture. Your room should never be dark – that is the first reason someone would like to spend time elsewhere.

Then think about decorating the walls with art. The art you choose does not have to coincide with the interior of a room. For example, hanging a Rembrandt print over a low black modern chair is much like having velvet pincushions on your leather sofa – it adds an eclectic mix. But if you want to revive some excitement, for example, minimalism can do well to have an Ellsworth Kelly or a Rothko print instead.

When you enter a room you want to feel that it is done for you, to sit and talk in it. By integrating these different design elements into your room, you will.
