To help, here are a few home styling tips from top designers, so you don't have to figure it out all on your own.
THE POWER OF 3
Here's a little secret from top designers: The rule of three — a design principle used in every room: from a triangular layout, groupings of objects in size and shape, and the flow of a room. It's a way in which you can lead the viewer through an experience — odd numbers are appealing. Our eyes move around more and it creates energy. Think about groupings of candles, vases, pillows, artwork, and plants.
CREATE HEIGHT & DIMENSION
Instantly make a room feel more open by mounting curtains higher above the window to create the feeling of more space. Tip: do not allow the curtain to drag on the floor as it may defeat the purpose, and give off a heavy feeling.
Position mirrors across from windows to reflect the natural light and give the illusion of another window to carry it throughout the space.
No room is complete without a light fixture. In fact, according to many designers, no room is complete without at least three light fixtures. This set-up should give you plenty of ambiance options, and you can make it even more flexible by adding dimmers to your lights in order to create a specific mood/vibe.
PUT A FOCAL POINT IN EVERY ROOM
Statement-making pieces can take a home from simple to striking, but snag too many, and you may overwhelm your space. One rule of thumb to follow? Put a single showstopper in every room: a dramatic light fixture, a captivating piece of art, a large piece of furniture, or a towering houseplant. Have fun with it and lead the viewer to experience a certain space.
