Before hanging any art on a wall, try different combinations of arrangements. Use painters tape and brown paper bags and keep rearranging the bits of paper on the wall until you have come up with a great picture arrangement. Always hang prints at eye level and use your hand in between pictures as a guide to space large and medium sized pictures. Mirrors are great to help create the illusion of space. By cleverly placing mirrors on an adjacent wall to a picture or something which is interesting in your room, will reflect the image and add a sense of space. For darker rooms, hang a decorative mirror near a window. The light will then bounce off the mirror into the room portraying more natural much-needed light back into the area.
When arranging a space with accessories, one has to keep in mind that the most important thing to avoid here is boredom! This has a lot less to do with the objects you choose than how you choose to display them. To keep an arrangement from putting the neighbors down for their afternoon nap, remember to keep a balance of harmony (things that feel like they go together, like similar colors or styles) and contrast (things that spice things up by being different... smooth against texture, round against straight line, et... ) You want a bit of both in your arrangement. Perhaps you could create harmony by repeating a square shape or the color purple, and then add contrast by sitting a smooth candlestick next to a rough basket.
Another option is to check trade publications. This includes magazines, along with pamphlets and other industry related materials. These are great resources to find design and furnishing ideas. Furthermore, they can help you track down certain pieces and sets that may have evaded you in the past. The latter is a common issue that most home and office owners face. They always seem to find that perfect addition while on the go, and simply cannot remember which store it was available at. The best part of these publications is the tips and suggestions they offer. Whether adding new items or simply revamping existing themes, you can find a wealth of home decorating ideas within trade magazines and on the web.
Next, dont be afraid to tackle different projects around your home. You can learn to tile a backsplash, a fireplace backsplash or a floor if you put your mind to it.
