If you are not sure, take a picture. It is remarkable how much a photo can reveal. Print it out or use photoshop or an app to draw on the photo. This can give you a sense of whether a larger or smaller piece of art is needed or a tall plant might be best to fill a vacant spot. Know how to arrange furniture on a rug. There are basically three ways you can arrange furniture on your rug.
This is precisely what did in this music room by using statement orange curtains and tangerine lamps while letting the blue and white recede to a single armchair. It ties in blue to fit in with the rest of the house. It is a huge proponent of painting things white, especially furniture. White modernizes and freshens. People are afraid of their old grandmothers found furniture, but their forms are so fabulous and remain timeless.
Resist the urge to be too theme y. For example, the Cape Cod look is a very popular request. You know the hallmarks, beadboard, a blue and white nautical palette, some sailboat paintings. But this has been done so many times, it lacks individuality. In this room the coastal vibe was achieved through a palette, artwork and materials that give the effect without drawing on the obvious clichés.
It never goes out of style. The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual.
