If you want to really, really change and make your room brightful, just paint some walls in orange. Plan first! Orange is a strong and noticeable color. If, for some reason, you don’t like the final result…you will have a problem. That wall will always stand out.

Orange looks always better if you combine it with other colors. You can soften the room by using white and other neutral tones. If you want to go mad/bold mix some electric blue, gold, red…it’s your house. You can do whatever you want!!

Remember that by creating a more light ambience your room will look bigger and fresher!

This is a color that involves some planning. You can’t just splash it on the wall and expect to look good, If you do it right you can use black in pretty much every space in your house: bedroom, living room and even the kitchen, yes.

Black paint is not the easiest to work. If you’re not careful with the paint job, after a while the walls will start to show some imperfections. To avoid that, use matte black  paint.

Most of people just don’t pay attention to the ceiling. If you want to stand out paint yours black. That will make it look lower and sleeker. But think first. If you already have a low ceiling don’t do it. Choose another color.

Paint an entire room black won’t look very good, let’s be honest, so try to combine it with some lighter colors and fill your room with objects than can contrast with the dark tone of the walls. You’ll end up with an extremely dynamic room. If you fancy a classic style play with black and white.

 Another aspect that you have always to keep in mind is lighting. Make sure that the room has both natural and artificial that can give a special effect to your room.

When used correctly black paint transforms your place in an open, dramatic and stylish home. If you’re the kind of person that has to try something new…go on. Buy the paint and let us know the final result.

Interior design light isn’t just to see where you´re going. You can use light and shadows to make your house look stylish, modern, trendy and fun.

In this post i’ll point to you some tricks revealed by A-list designers. You should keep them in mind when you decide to turn you entire house into a more bighter place.

 

1 –  “I use flowers and plants a lot because they really wake up a living room — and then I light them theatrically. I’ll wash a flower arrangement in light, or aim one under a big leaf so that it just glows, as if in sunlight, even if it’s midnight.” — Larry Laslo

2 – “A room should have multiple kinds of light to balance it and give it interest: hanging fixtures with uplights and downlights in them to add perspective, table lamps for tasks, and candlelight for coziness. It’s beautiful to group candles in twos and threes on tables and on window ledges. You can use the fat chunky ones and set them on flat stones or old pieces of wood.” —James Huniford

3- “In a bedroom, you need what I call a love light — a lamp you can dim when you’re feeling amorous. In my bedroom, I have a Noguchi paper standing lamp. I use a 25-watt incandescent bulb — barely any light at all — that goes amber when I put the dimmer on. It gives everyone the golden glow of late afternoon sunshine — that most beautiful light.” —Clodagh

4 – “I love to put a lamp on a long dining table. Clear one end, and put the light and all the food and flowers there. It makes a lovely still life and floods the scene with warmth.” —Barbara Barry

5 -“If you really want to go the distance, have diffusers made for the tops of all your lampshades. A diffuser is a plate that you attach to the lamp itself — we make ours out of sandblasted glass — and it prevents the light from casting a big shadow on the ceiling.” —. J. Randall Powers
