Inside designer Amie Igou with Decorating Den Interiors talks about factors to think about when decorating a dwelling as perfectly as what types are coming into style.

How do homeowners operate with a designer to determine type?

I offer my consumers with about a 10-site questionnaire, and it seriously lets them get honed in on shades that they like, shades that they never want, home furnishings parts that they have to have, window treatment plans that they require, [etc.]. I also listen to what they want to carry out in their home.

What is the ideal way to select an inside paint shade?

Ordinarily, we have all chosen paint coloration very first, and that is definitely backwards of the way you should do it. What I let my clientele know is find a piece of artwork you actually really like. Maybe its fabric for window treatment plans or custom made pillows, and then you can pull colours out of that item and that results in being your paint plan.

What can be ignored when thinking of the appear of a space?

Lighting can make a big change, and there is some actually interesting developments that are form of coming down the pike. Paint colors and anything change in lights, and so that’s absolutely a single thing that shoppers have to imagine about. Issues will modify depending on the way that their rooms are oriented, the amount of money of lights, normal gentle and then what we can do with bringing other light sources into the area.

What traits are happening at the moment?

1 pattern that I actually like is having hanging pendant [lamps] above nightstands in the learn bed room. I consider which is a very stylish, refined look. It frees up the space of the top rated of the nightstands, where by typically we’ve put lamps.

Another is we’re seeing a large amount additional gold. We’ve been in these oil-rubbed bronze and satin nickel tones for about 10 to 12 yrs, so now [we’re] seriously seeing a great deal of gold coming into model, in particular in kitchens and for kitchen components.
