Golden Rules

       Of course the world of interior design is very wide and has lots of variety. Here’s a few simple steps or “golden rules” you can take with a grain of salt, because your home should create a representation of who you are and make you feel comfortable. This post is more of a list to provide help to those who need a little guidance in the realm of interior design.

The Golden Rectangle: The greek ratio of a perfect room goes as follows: 1 to 1.61803399, these numbers basically mean for a perfect design the room’s walls should fall under this ratio in order to create a perfect room.  

Texture + Color: Color and texture go hand in hand. Someone who is trying to add character to a room should never fear of patterns or texture because it truly does go well together.

Lightening: The lights in the room set the mood for the room as a whole. The lighting should reflect on the feel you want in room. If you’re trying to get a room perfect for unwinding and relaxation try for a more ambient focus of light, for a room to feel clean and crisp white lightening can always do the trick.

Surround yourself with what you love: Finally, and most importantly, when designing your home remember that home is where the heart is and it should be filled with things you love. Whether you want to express a love for a color, activity, or your family, don’t shy away from it. There is always a way to tastefully have your personality throughout your home.   

We hope to spark ideas and creativity with our clients and would love to hear more from our followers!

Get Rid Of That Negative Energy!

Who wants negative energy in their home? I know we don’t! We have some tips and tricks to keep that negative energy out of the home and bring in some positive vibes. This year is all about being refreshed and renewed as we learned from our color of the year, Greenery. Let’s take sometime to do a couple things around our homes to make ourselves feel more relaxed and kick out all that negative energy that shouldn’t be crowding our living spaces!

Essential Oils

Yes, we’ve been hearing a lot about essential oils. Are they really that good for you and your surroundings? Yes! They are! To be specific to negative vibes, we suggest using the orange scent. This smell often reminds people of sunshine, summer, and smiles. Its an easy adjustment that automatically puts you in a better mood. Use it as a spray around the home or put a couple drops in your diffuser with some water.

Repair The Broken Items

Broken things in the home always brings about a negative energy. Instead of saying, “oh,  I’ll fix that later.” Either fix it right then or throw it out if you know you’ll never get around to it. Broken items give off a broken ambiance.

Remove clutter ASAP

Clutter just makes you feel cramped and unorganized. It only makes you feel worse and overwhelmed. What many people don’t know is that objects actually retain lots of energy and that tends to “block” our path and daily activities. Do yourself a favor and spend a day decluttering your home. It will help you to feel less tired and stressed on a daily basis.

Yellow Paint

Try putting yellow in your home and not have it brighten the room or remind people of sunshine. Color plays an extremely important role in your home, and the color yellow tends to calm bad energy and wipe it away. Not only does it improve the mood and vibe in the room, but it also makes a room appear bigger and adds a warm tone to the room.

Love your home and keep that bad, negative energy out of there!
