Interior Design Secrets from Architectural Digest Stylists. Get to know the design tips they have for you, in order to improve your home.
Artichokes (or Pile Lemons)
We begin our Interior Design Secrets with Artichokes and they are beautiful. According to Ten Have, they are “… sculptural, and their texture is so elegant. Or I’ll do a bowl of lemons and limes for a bright pop of color—but I go big. I’ll get a big box of them,”.
Choose the Right Color Palette
Ten Have also said, regarding the right color palette, that “…colors should operate on the same wavelength: warm colors, cool colors, dusty colors,”.
“You can’t underestimate how important it is to have flowers or something living in space. Just go and get some branches from right outside your door, or find something that’s living that’s of the landscape,”. Bring the outdoor design to the indoor space, you won’t regret it!
When you decor a specific space, you have to make sure that it has your total influence, that it is made by and for you.
Mix Colors and Textures
“It’s always so beautiful to have vignettes with different values, whether that’s color, shape, or height, but there has to be another value that unites them, like texture or color,” says Ten Have.
Get to know your “Anchovy”
“Find that strange, offbeat, bizarre thing that you can add to your tableau. I often come back to a saying the designer Thomas Jayne once shared with me: ‘It’s like adding an anchovy to a room.’ For example, I collect bird nests near my home and put them on bookshelves,” explains Ten Have. Don’t forget that strange it’s different, and different is good.
Break It Up
Flower decor in order to break it up into different pieces, all on the dining table.
What Your Space Demands?
It’s all about creating a unique sense of yin and yang, a balance between contemporary and traditional, for example. Sometimes, you only have to “… visually try to bring order to chaos, or sometimes bring a bit of chaos to too much order.”.
It’s quite easy to transform a room, and how you can do that? With light and the way you use that same light.
Regarding your home and some more interior design secrets, try always to find balance. A place where you can have both light and dark.
