While in a bedroom, you must be able to benefit from a space of 50 cm minimum around the bed to be able to move freely, in the kitchen, you must find the famous activity triangle to facilitate travel. These are basic rules to know by heart when planning an interior!

2. Light colors for a feeling of space

It is well known, light colors give the impression of a larger space. So if you're running out of space, it's best to use them. On the walls, the floor covering, the furniture… White or pastel tones bring clarity and light!

3. Dark colors to give depth

Unlike light colors, dark tones can give the impression of a smaller space. However, when a dark color is used on the back wall, it gives depth to the space.

4. The rule of 3 colors

It is a fundamental rule in decoration! To avoid missteps, we never combine more than three colors in the same room. The trend is to opt for a variation of the same shade or pastel tones.

5. A well placed mirror visually enlarges the space

Nothing is more effective than a mirror to visually enlarge the space. Placed close to an exterior opening, it reflects light and makes it possible to multiply square meters without pushing the walls. Prefer large models for maximum effect!

6. Each space has its function

For an optimized and organized interior, you must define a function for each room. And if one of them has several, think of delimiting the spaces thanks to interior partitions like canopies or small accessories like a carpet!

7. The total look, to ban absolutely!

It is the worst thing to do! And for good reason, you will inevitably tire of it. The ideal being to choose a major style which will occupy the space at 70% and 30% of accessories of a different style which will give a boost to the rest.

8. Plants, well-being partners

There is nothing better than plants to give life to your decor. Choose depolluting species and take advantage of their benefits for a healthier interior. And above all, do not hesitate to accumulate them all over the house!

9. Lighting, an element not to be overlooked

We tend to neglect it but it is a serious mistake. Lighting plays a decisive role indoors. Not only does it influence our well-being, but it also sets the tone from the start. For optimal lighting, each room must have a main source and 3 to 4 auxiliary sources.

10. Household linen: charming assets

11. Each season, its decoration

In summer, we like to cool down while in winter, we seek more to cocoon. It therefore makes sense to change your decor according to the seasons. Take out thick and cozy linens for the winter and swap them for more airy and light versions when spring arrives! It will change the whole atmosphere!

12. Nothing is lost, everything is transformed!

More than a trend, recycling (or upcycling) revives old objects so as not to spend and waste unnecessarily. Thus, a chest becomes a coffee table, a colander turns into a floral suspension or pallets turn into a bench!
