DECORATE WITH THREE COLORS OR SHADES
Color is very personal and it creates moods within us that inspire. Choose the colors that call to you and are prominent in the rooms pictures you’ve saved.
Try to mix only three colors or shades. One main color for walls, another for large accents such as tables and couches, and a third that pops in smaller accessories like jars and pillows.
The texture is as important as color, especially if you desire to have a single color scheme. If you chose this type of color decoration, it’s important to balance it with texture so it gives out shades and a not so monochromatic feel.
Consider textiles materials that suit your lifestyle. If you have kids and/or animals, then don’t use a light color sofa but a dark leather one. If you desire a luxury and glamorous look, consider high-end silk draperies and pillows.
Whatever is the style you chose, try to add plenty of texture.
HAVE BIG FURNITURE PIECES
Common houses have too many small pieces in a room, and that only gives the image of clutter and confusion.
Instead, try for a room that has a balanced mix. Have a large sofa, some skirted club chairs and the one or two slender armchairs with attractive legs.
Most interior designers will say that even small rooms need to have a large statement piece. A very successful key design is to mix big and little, even for accessories.
USE DECORATIVE TRAYS AND BOWLS
Designer love accessories that arrange collections or loose items that are always scattered at home.
For a glamorous look, try a gold tray to your coffee table with a pretty candle on top, some books and a small bowl at the side.
If your style is more of a rustic approach, try woven baskets. This accessory is a fabulous decorative toll that can hide the clutter of your home.

There are a large number of easy-care plants that you can buy that will last years if you properly take care of them. Avoid fake floral arrangements, because it can give a cheap look to your room.
