The concept of taste implies to a historically formed ability of a person to differentiate, understand and appreciate beauty and ugliness, whether in reality or in works of art. Interior design is one of the areas for manifestation of taste.
Just like in fashion there are rules of good taste, sense of style in clothes and jewelry, the world of interiors has its own unspoken rules. Professionals with good visual experience, do not hesitate to respect these rules. On the other hand, a person, who first came face to face with the problem of interior decoration, may not even know what is good and what is bad. Now the market of building materials is saturated with suggestions of new technologies, magazines are full of advertising photography. And if you want to invest and make your home comfortable for yourself and your guests, it is very difficult to avoid mistakes. The truth is, the art of interior decoration existed for more than one century. Some traditions have been lost, some techniques forgotten, and much has changed in our way of life.
The first thing to mention is the choice of finishing materials. Just like we wear clothes made of cotton instead of synthetic, your home is better to be filled with materials of natural origin. Surround yourself with eco-friendly things that will be good for your health and at the same time make your interior stylish.
Choose wood instead of laminate, stone over tile, paper over fleece. There is one little trick – all types of furniture look much better and more noble when the flooring is good.
The concept of good taste is inextricably linked with the concept of quality. Marble flooring, oak flooring, silk-covered walls, plaster moldings and down pillows never go out of date. And now, despite the emergence of new technologies, the quality of natural materials remains at a high level. A nice addition to all the great qualities of materials such as wood and stone is their age.
Good taste is, first of all, being honest with yourself: to appreciate your history, your roots, to find adequate space, time, and possible solutions. It is not necessary to have Gothic halls in a small apartment in a building. Items, inscribed in the context of space, do not cause dissonance and raise questions.
Textile, being an integral part of home interior, most clearly reflects the tastes of the owner. It is the best if the curtains were made of natural fibers.
We have talked a lot about flowers in the interior. In this article I want to mention just one thing – it is cool if there are always fresh flowers in the house. Fragrance, green leaves and rich color buds always enlivens the space. Fresh flowers can be replaced by seasonal dried flowers, but not artificial ones.
If you choose to have paintings in the interior, keep in mind that author’s original work is most valued. It is worth to pay special attention to the frame.
And last, but the most difficult is not to make any mistakes with a choice of colors for your interior. Professionals manage to combine dozens of different colors, patterns and textures in the same space and make it harmonious. Do not try to keep up with them. Win-win situation is the combinations of three colors, where the use of one is more active than others.
