Arranging your furniture becomes much easier once a focal point in your room is established. Your main furniture pieces are best directed towards your room’s focal point, keeping the major traffic areas open & easily flowing. You should aim to have a balance of furniture items around your room.
Avoid following the latest ‘hottest’ trends or fads – It’s best to steer clear of predictions about what’s ‘hot’ or the ‘next big trend’, unless you’re OK with finding yourself in the position of having to change your home decorating every year or 2, or as often as you change your wardrobe.
We’ve heard of the genius “technology” used in ancient times to build towering monuments with nothing more than primitive tools like stones and ropes.
The best examples of home decorating interiors are often done on a shoestring budget - but the beauty is that you'd never know. You can make a tiny shoe-box sized apartment look good with paint, a few decent pieces of furniture, beautiful decorative cushions & home accents, some personal or puchased art, well chosen proper lighting, gorgeous rugs or matting, & the most important of all – a dose of imagination & elbow grease.
