The lease is signed, the site is launched and the best is yet to come. A priori, it remains the funniest part, that of arranging and decorating every corner of your first apartment.
An exercise that promises to be rather simple unless you come close to bad taste. It will be necessary to deal with certain codes to avoid the 7 mistakes that we all necessarily made one day while arranging.
DO NOT VISUALIZE THE WHOLE
The most common mistake is that of not seeing the interior as a whole and focusing on just one room. In order to harmonize everything, do not hesitate to take the necessary time and develop each step of the makeover: dressing the walls, style of furniture, and the desired atmosphere.
BUY WITHOUT COUNTING
This Togo sofa, do you know where to put it? And this designer vase? If you tend to shop without thinking too much, focus on the budget to start again according to your needs. The furniture first, the little decoration afterward.
SHOP THE DECOR IN THE SAME PLACE
Going to the same and unique big name is tempting to save time. But to display a neat and above all complete decoration, we do not hesitate to go around the small designer shops, to hunt in flea markets for essentials such as old mirrors, to steal some decoration ideas from the mastodons of decoration. And, above all, to invest in designer pieces that will last over time.
FALL IN LOVE WITH A COLOR WITHOUT TESTING IT
Not testing the color may upset your walls. The navy captures in the living room of your friend, the terracotta shade match well with this couple of designers, but in your living room, that’s another story.
AUTOMATICALLY PLACE YOUR FURNITURE AGAINST A WALL
We all do it. This automation is well and truly considered a decorative faux pas. And besides, it’s not very feng-shui … Be inventive in the layout of the room.
DECORATE YOUR INTERIOR AS YOU DREAM OF IT
Rather than projecting yourself onto a gigantic fantasy space , consider studying the different spaces by adapting and arranging them according to their size. An XXL craft table will not fit in a small living room, nor a large industrial lamp.
WANTING TO MIX STYLES TOO MUCH
The mix & match works in decoration , we know that. But, by dint of mixing styles, we get lost. A seaside lounge, an Art Deco entrance, a hippie bedroom, don’t you see the problem? Without resorting to the sanitized interior and the monostyle, learn to dose.
