It doesn’t matter whether you’ve just moved in and are still sitting on boxes or just need a little change of scenery – it always makes sense to design your own four walls in such a way that you enjoy coming home. In order to live better, less is often more. And this principle even benefits the wallet.
How you can live better with little effort
When it comes to furnishing, it always comes down to the big picture, which, in combination with selected details, ensures a successful interior design. You have probably already thought about the color choice in your home and created a concept for it. But did you also think of different patterns and structures? A mix of soft and hard materials as well as rough and smooth surfaces ensures that the eye perceives exciting contrasts – an important point when furnishing a room. And the size of a room and the ceiling height also play a decisive role. For example, give a room more depth by skilfully positioning the mirror. Also choose uplighters and flat pieces of furniture in combination with light colors and vertical stripes (for example on the curtains) to make the living space appear higher.
