Following and breaking decorating rules

Decorating is the harmony between the composition, chromatics and ergonomics. It doesn't stop after designers have completed their projects. On the contrary, it coexists with the space for life. It’s a sort of a never-ending cycle where things come and go.

title

When is the best time for your furniture to retire? Well, it’s actually up to you. However, if a sofa is twice your age and spits out dust, there is no doubt you should do something about it.

title
Décor is like a suit. If you want it to fit perfectly well, tailor it right. If you make a mistake with the length of your sleeves or other details, then even expensive fabric won’t do the job.
title

If you create a space from scratch, start with a palette. Decorators have a special color formula: apply the base color to 60% of surfaces, including textiles and accessories; 30% should take the additional one, and 10% will go to accent elements.

title

Color harmony does not necessarily mean sticking to one basic tone. Look for harmonious color pairs and dilute the active, vibrant elements with calm ones. For example, placing two flamboyant objects next to each other isn’t such a good idea. They will turn into monsters and eat each other.

title

Patterned curtains and ornaments may be very hard work for your eyes. Get some rest. A beige sofa or plain walls in a quiet monochrome will do the trick.

title

Contrasting objects may be rather a plus than a minus in your artwork. Even if it is your favorite artist or a sculptor, don't fill all the space with monotonous works. Sometimes a trendy interior means a collage of combined paintings, sculptures, pop art posters and even authentic Ukrainian Petrikovka.

It is important to find and combine the right elements, because you can stumble even on a painting if you don't take into account the functional purpose of the space, the height of the ceilings and the lighting system.

In our workshop, we often combine old and new. For example, there is raku ware sitting on a minimalist table. Such items allow us to erase time frames and synthesize cultural traditions.

title

Eco-design trend is making its way in decor. Use natural materials like clay, wood, stone. They are neutral in their essence and are appropriate in any space as well as a black T-shirt in a wardrobe.

Textures and finishing materials revive achromatic and monochrome interiors. Glossy and matte surfaces, concrete, wood, smooth stone, and plaster relief transform the space into visually saturated and unique.

title

The light in our workshop is like a philosophy. We create collections of our own luminaries and each time we try to bring natural light into a house. Therefore, the next rule of décor is to fall in love with the light.

When integrating and installing the lighting system, consider the challenges in the functional areas. We believe that spaces, whose sole light source is a chandelier in the center, are like Amur leopards – they are dying out.

If an interior is too “short”, you can “feed” it with strong verticals and low fittings and see it grow taller in front of your eyes.

Decorations breathe the life into a space, making the evening with your loved ones warmer, reading a book – nicer, and studying – easier. Textiles, sculptures, paintings, vases, lighting transform the appearance of the interior, and consequently – our perceptions.

title

The most important thing is to say "no" to sacrifices. Life is too short to torture yourself with an uncomfortable chair, because it is beautiful. Beauty and functionality should exist in harmony.
