Few home improvement projects can have the type of major impact a solid, well-planned interior design scheme can. The critical part of developing such a plan is having the sort of in-dept knowledge of the topic necessary to make your complete vision a reality. Take the concepts and guidance in the article below to heart, and you will soon be designing interior spaces that are the envy of the neighborhood.
Look at the furniture and custom window treatments you have on your home and find a combination of colors and furniture that fits well together. You want to have furniture colors that compliment each other, as well as the colors around your home. Avoid picking colors that aren’t related, because this can look like you don’t know style.
Figure out what mood you’re trying to set and use that as the basis for your color choices. If you want it to be relaxing or calming, consider using light and cool colors like blues and greens. Your color choices and your choice of furniture should all be based on what you’re trying to accomplish with the look and feel of the room.
One of the easiest steps in interior design involves painting a room. Paint gives a room a fresh look, and it can completely change the feeling in the space. Paint allows you to put a dash of your individual style in the space, and it is an inexpensive way to begin redesigning your home.
Picking the right colors is essential for every design project. You can find advice on what colors you should never combine online and in decorating magazines if you are not sure. You should also be wary of using a lot of bold colors in a single room.
If you are decorating a smaller room or space, try to incorporate mirrors into your design. Mirrors create the illusion of larger space, and add depth and beauty to the room’s design as well. Interesting, unique frames can also enhance the decor of the space, turning a mirror into a work of art.
Interior design has the ability to utterly transform the mundane and turn it into something that is visually stunning and eminently functional. In order to accomplish this feat, every budding designer must take the time to educate themselves properly on the subject. With any luck, the ideas and tips in the piece above have provided just the sort of foundation you need to get started.

Do you love interior design and wish that you could turn your home-decorating visions into gorgeous reality? Well, you can do just that. This article offers some fantastic advice, useful tips and nifty tricks to help you get started. Use this advice to help you create spaces that you can be proud of.
Make sure that you have a budget when you are planning to change the interior design of your home. It is easy to get carried away by the gorgeous draperies and decorative items that you see in home magazines. You would not want to go into big debt just to make your house look better.
Anyone who is designing a room in their house would be wise to incorporate hang art on the walls. Artwork does a great job of making your room look complete. Just make sure you choose a piece or two that meshes with the current decor of the room you are designing.
Use brightly colored fabrics to add a bit of life to a drab room. A few decorative pillows or a throw in a brightly colored fabric can add instant appeal to an otherwise boring room. Continue the theme with a piece of artwork or a vase of flowers featuring the same color, tying the room together.
It’s very common for a home to have at least one small room that needs to feel larger than it really is. To make small rooms look bigger, try painting the walls using light colors. Dark colors in small rooms make the room look even smaller that it is.
Lighting is an essential part of every room. Lighting develops a mood. In rooms that need a positive, energetic feeling, such as the bathroom and the kitchen, using bright lights is a great idea. In contrast, though, bright lighting can spoil the effect you’re shooting for if you want to make a room feel calmer and more subtle. Try suing dimmer lights in bedrooms and living rooms if you want a mood like that.
Always keep functionality in mind when you’re designing a room. You need to consider your day to day usage of the room. Ask yourself if certain features will inhibit your day to day usage. Will it become hard to maneuver around? Will it become distracting and hinder you? Your room should be functional above all else.
Now that you have a better understanding of what is required to create those rooms that wow, you can get started on creating your own amazing spaces. If you implement the tips and tricks offered above, you will be designing up a storm in no time flat. Get started today.

Adding texture to your room is easy with velvet curtains giving your room a soft look. However not all velvet curtains are the same. By adding tassel fringe or drapery trim to your velvet curtains you will make them look very formal. The picture here is more contemporary if you are looking for modern decorating or contemporary curtains. You can change the look of the room purely by the style and color of curtains you select. For example, if you are going for a traditional style in your living room, you may select a gold velvet with tassel trim. The drape or curtain style best suited for traditional curtains would be a pinch pleat drape or french pleat drape. If you want a more contemporary look for your living room, we would recommend a grommet curtain or grommet drape. The color velvet you select for you window treatments has a lot to do with the look and feel as well. For more modern, you may want to look at ivory velvet fabric or even purple velvet fabric. This is going to give your room a more contemporary modern look. We have 10 glorious velvet colors to select from. Get free swatches in our Marcy Velvet fabric for the most luxurious velvet curtains.
When decorating an picking out fabrics for custom window treatments, pillows, valances, drapes and custom bedding there are a couple of rules to follow. If you want a more contemporary style, you should pick one color and select different shades. For example, you may want to select cream color curtains, a cream couch and a stark white carpet. You accent pillows could also be shades of bone, cream and off white and typically one pop color or geometric print to stand out. If you want a more traditional style, you would select a fabric with a floral, damask or scroll pattern and then select a few different solids to play off that print, include a stripe fabric and/or a plaid fabric. Traditional decorating is generally more busy and modern would be more monochromatic and streamlined.

Now that HGTV’ Destination Design has aired, it is great to see how our window treatments helped to transform some of the rooms. With only 2 episodes shown to date, the rooms have been beautifully designed by designer Taniya Nayak inspired by the homeowner’s travels. The first episode the couple traveled to Turks and Caicos and was attracted to the vibrant colors of the sea and beautiful shells and sails. They returned to a home full of color and gorgeous decor with all the fabulous HGTV Design ideas. The window treatment drapery panels and sheer curtains were reminiscent of the Caribbean. We were so happy to see the textured drapes and sheer drapes incorporating in the rooms. The fabrics were a perfect match and the show’s featured couple was ecstatic.
In the 2nd episode the homeowner traveled to Austin, Texas and was inspired by the color of a local berry plant. Taniya’s vision for this room was an Austin Cavern Berry Living Room. The walls were painted a light tone of purple and the deep purple back tab drapery panels were a perfect accent on the windows. She added 2 pillows against the white couch in the “pop” deep berry color. Such an array of fabrics, textures and colors truly made both rooms remarkable.
Stay tuned for upcoming episodes on Saturdays at 1:30 pm. A show not to be missed!
