Mistake number one: don’t define our style and needs a common mistake is not to stop and think and to ask ourselves what we really want and need. What makes a space special and unique is that it reflects the way of life of the individual who live in that space. It is important to understand that each of us is unique and we use a space in different ways.
According to our habits, therefore, it is important to know what we really like and what works in our daily lives. It is important to evaluate our spaces, functional aspects that consists of evaluating how we use the different rooms to establish a list of the furniture, its quantity and the distribution within our home.
Also, we must organize our ideas and taste regarding the aesthetics of the space. We must know what attract us and makes us feel good. Taking inspiration is very important, but it doesn’t end there instead of following trends and coping ideas. First, ask yourself what you admire about the rooms, and what do you like about this inspiration? Is this the textures? The color palette, the materials, the lighting plan or the style of the furniture. Once you have your personal preferences, you can start your own interior design process with confidence to organize ideas of those things that we need and like it is important to make a mood board.
A mood board consists of looking for images of reference projects, furnitures lamps, colors deck reef, objects, fabrics or anything else you like and capturing them on a canvas. You are interested in learning more on how to create your own mood boards. Let me know in the comments, if you want to see a video about this in the future. Mood boards is something that designers do to be able to visualize all ideas more efficiently.
It is also important to make decisions when buying, as it helps to keep up with the aesthetics. We have defined those avoiding spending on things that are not in harmony with the idea and general appearance of our space. Mistake number two not having a defined color palette, not setting a color palette is another common mistake.
After knowing the style or styles that we like, it is important to establish a general color palette that will serve as a guide to choose our furniture. Lamps rocks wall, art, etc. To choose a suitable color palette, evaluate your style and spaces. Details such as floor color, doors coverings, natural and artificial lighting, set neutral colors for the overall space and the accent colors that will define your color palette. Obviously, this color palette can evolve or include other colors in the future.
Still it is important to have it as a base to know if a particular item you want to buy now or in the future harmonizes with your space and the colors, you are ready to find planning. The colors and materials is essential to ensure that your home is cohesive. By the way i will leave you two excellent videos about colors. In one of them i explained how to combine colors using the color wheel and in the other i talk about neutral colors and how to choose them correctly.
I’ll leave the link up here and in the description box.
Mistake number three, not investing in a lighting plan. A prevalent mistake is not investing in lighting. I imagine you suspected that i was going to talk to you about lighting. Yes, i will never get tired of saying it. Lighting is everything in design and architecture.
We do nothing spending on pretty details or establish a perfect color palette if we don’t properly illuminate our spaces, why is lighting so important because it dramatically changes how we perceive a space and how we feel in it? Besides, good lighting makes our furnishings and decorative elements stand out since the relationship of matter and light creates contrast in the space which allows us better to define the volumes and geometry of the composition.
It adds depth and makes the space much more interesting and aesthetic. In my lighting video, i explain and reveal how to illuminate the spaces correctly work with layering lighting and choose the color temperature of a lamp, among other fundamental concepts. I will leave the link here and in the description box, mistake number four, forgetting that details are part of the composition.
The details I’m referring to are the general details of a space such as dork, knobs, faucets handles cornices, moldings, etc. I call these details. Rules of the space – and i like to compare it with fashion. For example, an outfit becomes even more special when it is complemented with beautiful earrings rings, a brush or a belt right.
Those details are what add, personality a style and make the difference. The same happens with interior design. Details are a fundamental part of the composition and are responsible for making a common space something extraordinary. It should be noted that these details must adhere to the style and color palette that you have defined another mistake. People often make is buying on impulse to take advantage of a special price in the long term.
These impulse purchases can be costly buying on impulse to take advantage of a discount on a specific item can lead you to buying things that you don’t really need or don’t add anything to a space, because it doesn’t go with the style of the things you already Have at home, maybe the color of this piece doesn’t harmonize with your color palette: it’s not functional because it is too big or small for your room and so on.
These purchases are often expensive, because, once you add this new element that you found acceptable for its price, it can totally break the harmony you have already created and subtracted beauty and functionality from everything you have invested. So when you buy have your mood board in hand, your color palette and a clear idea of the items you really need due to their function, so that you don’t regret or ruin all the effort you have made so far, so remember define your style and what You really need create a mood board that will help you make decisions according to your wishes and taste, define your color palette.
Invest in lighting, don’t forget the details because they are a fundamental part of a spaces: composition, don’t buy on impulse, stick to your style and the things that really add to the comfort and beauty of your space.
