Interior decoration is the art of choosing the right furniture and decorative items to enhance the feel of a place, whilst balancing a home/space’s design elements and colour coordination. It doesn’t necessarily require professional training for interior design, and can be learned by experience, and researching the latest home decoration magazines or websites. However, it is an art that takes time to develop if you want to do it well.
If a project’s architectural design, colour coordination and material selection were the basis for creating a beautiful and tasty cake, then the interior decoration would no doubt be the icing on the cake. More is not always better, and having expensive furniture or feature items doesn’t always express good taste.
Interior decoration when applied appropriately can significantly enhance the visual appeal of a home or a living space: Highlighting its design, spatial contrast, and harmonising with its colour scheme. However, if an interior space is decorated poorly, even a beautifully designed home/space can go to waste; or worse yet, it completely destroys the intended atmosphere, leaving the visitors a sense of discomfort and tackiness.
Have you ever been to an open home for sale or rent without any interior decoration? It could be one of the most beautiful houses both indoor & outdoor but it just feels dull and lifeless – like it’s lacking something. It’s often harder to imagine yourself living there or its potential use because it is just walls and spaces. You might find that it doesn’t take you long before you walk out the door to look at another place because there’s literally nothing to look at.
On the other hand, if you’ve been to an open home that’s been nicely decorated on the inside with colour coordinated furniture and lifestyle items; it instantly turns even a less appealing house into something of greater perceived value. This is the power of interior decoration and a well coordinated colour scheme. Fortunately, both these activities can be scaled accordingly to your budget. This means you can easily turn your new home or renovating project into something to be desired – without breaking the bank.
