How to Decorate a Room
Choose your theme
Choose your color scheme and the look you want to go for. This will dictate what decor to get and the linen you should purchase.
Introduce your base colors
Choose a color scheme for your carpets, rugs, curtains, and any other fabric items. They should match or be complementary.
Add a few reflective items
Bring in a few glass or metallic items. This will bring balance to the matte textures.
Choose your wall decor
Add mirrors to enlarge a room. Paintings will add a matte feel, creating a homey atmosphere.
Bring a light source into the room
Ensure there is enough strong light in the room. If the windows are small, add candles and lamps, which are also decorative.
