Painting a room with too many bright colors can be overwhelming and not everyone loves having only white walls.

In this post, we’re going to give you a few tips to help you when you paint your next room.

• If you want to make a small room seem bigger, then keeping darker and bolder colors below eye level helps, while at the same time putting light colors above eye level.
• To make your ceiling seem taller you should paint your walls lighter than your ceiling.
• Stripes can help a room feel bigger by creating the illusion of height or length

• Be sure to tie patterns with a common color to make your room flow even better.

Tastefully Bringing Nature to Interiors

People have always loved to bring elements of nature into their homes, from flowers to potted plants, but with the modern trend toward minimalism, it seems we’re seeing less and less living nature in our homes these days. However, there are still some great ways to keep these elements in even the most modern home designs.

First, realize what color “nature” tends to mean: green. Plants themselves are part of the color chart, so it’s important to consider how those shades fit into your interior color schemes. Even the shape and texture of flowers and plants have an effect on the overall trend of the room.

Plants Interior Design

For a sleek, modern look, we like to use plants that keep very straight, simple lines. Combined with the right vase or pot, this can add a note of freshness and elegance to a space, using that feeling of controlled wilderness to add a compellingly refined touch.

For more traditional spaces, we also like to use plants and flowers that come in more eccentric forms with more intricate color accents. If you do this, be careful to follow the same line of color throughout the rest of the space so it feels like a necessary fixture, not a distraction.
