Focus on Colors
Whether inside or outside, the choice of colors has a lot of influence on the look of the decoration. This is why choosing soft, light, and bright colors are highly recommended to have a friendly interior. However, it is necessary to associate them well so that the results are up to your expectations. In other words, the colors of the walls and flooring should match the furniture.
For example, you can paint one of the walls yellow, water green, or orange for the living room and choose a softer tone for the other three. Keeping this same principle, contrasting colors is also an excellent idea.
On the other hand, you can choose a single color for all four walls. Moreover, this method remains a trend. The renderings are different, of course. However, the result is the same, namely “a friendly decoration”. Then, choose a plain color such as brown, black or natural wood for the floor to have more freedom on the choice of furniture and linens.
As for the exterior, a lovely rustic garden is always an important asset to bring a warm touch. To do so, you can diversify the plants (flowers, climbers, bonsais, shrubs, vegetable garden, fruit trees), build a terrace or a pergola, install a small pond, decorate the paths with natural stone, etc.
A lawn is “never” to be refused if the outdoor space allows it. The choice of the roof color and exterior walls are also to be taken into account.
On the other hand, whether or not to paint the fence can be optional. In other words, whether you paint it or leave it as is, the wall generally retains its charm.
Focus on Light
Focusing on lighting and brightness has many benefits. Standing and/or hanging lights and string lights are excellent for highlighting the splendor as well as the friendliness of your exterior, especially at night. On the other hand, if you want to save, especially energy, choose solar lighting, especially since it is ecological.
As far as interior design is concerned, light is friendliness and warmth. Most techniques are suitable to optimize the lighting of a room, hallway, and stairs.
To begin, we have natural lighting obtained through openings such as doors, windows, and portholes as well as through skylights. In principle, the latter are installed at the roof level. In addition, this installation requires know-how, tools, and personal protective equipment because it represents risks for the safety of the people who carry it out. This is why we advise you to contact professionals in this field. Besides, a wide range of lighting fixtures is available to optimize your interior decoration and make your home cozy day and night.
