The Art of Space, Design Tips and Tricks by Mary Cook

Designing your home is a combination of following the rules and creating innovative and personal ideas. To create a balance between the two elements, you can define the inspiration, objective, and expected function at the planning stage and adjust the scale, color, patterns, and lighting accordingly.

Just find the objective and inspiration of your home design and let the fun begin. Forget the formal dining and living rooms and opt for the flexible open space with well-chosen furniture that can stand-alone or divide the place into visually separated zones for easy transitions and supervision for your kids.

You can still provide your kids a sense of privacy in their own rooms using shining colors and small-sized furniture along with large windows to enhance the open feel of the place.

Think outside of the box and keep your home out-of-date with a collection of surprising hacks painted the same color of the room or even your favorite accent color. Actually, color will influence the overall mood of your home; so, try to be stylish, trendy, and personal to provide your home a unique glamour with your targeted mood. Just define if you prefer the active, passive, neutral, or a combination of them and step directly inside your choice testing the colors on a part of the wall.

The ice of the cake in your artistic design is the energetic, soft, decorative, or luxurious lighting system. It will be a great idea to combine such lighting elements using colorful lighting fixtures with the white washed walls and the spotlights to display an accent wall, a piece of art, or a floor to ceiling upholstered headboard. Here is a list of inspirational designs by Mary cook to help you master the art of your home design and decor.
