Things To Remember While Choosing Décor For Your Room
- Size of the décor and its proportion with the background. Sometimes, while buying or making things, we often forget to think about how a certain size will look once it’s placed. Using big décor pieces for small rooms and vice versa can ruin the proportions and the look of the room.
- Colours can make or break the vibe of a room. Remember to consider your wall colour & the existing colours in your room while making or buying new décor pieces. Colours that don’t go together will only end up making your room look messy.
- Choose your upholstery and home textiles carefully. These will be significant pieces like your cot, curtains, armchair etc. and can’t be changed frequently. Don’t go for jarring prints and patterns instead opt for solids or textured fabrics. If you are doing a minimal room, then you can opt for one accent piece that’s quirky.
