5 Avoid too much soft decoration in living room decoration
First, move the furniture placed against wall to the central of living room. Leave some space between furniture and wall. It has the function of expand space visually and make furniture become the view focus in living room.
Second, do not occupy the space on sofa with too many back cushions. The number of cushion should be controlled in certain amount.
Third, many people have the habit of collecting beautiful items and exhibit them in home as a decoration way. What I want to remind home owner is that do not piling up your show cabinet with those items. They may make your home messy. You can try to classify and exhibit them in turn. By this way, you not only can make your home organized, but also can add fresh element every now and then.
6 Choose proper soft decoration
First, do not use too many fabrics on sofa. Integrity slipcover can maintain the smoothness and concise look of sofa.
Second, rug is a common décor people used in home decoration. But rug should be combined with furniture, such as bed, sofa and table. Using it individually in a blank area may influence the space integrity and stumble people. Therefore, people planning to have rug should take these factors into consideration.
Third, artificial flower brings indoor air pollution. On one side, it cannot add vitality to your home as true flower; on the other side, it will absorb dust on it. It will be a large sum of money to use true flower as home décor every day. Home owner can use other home decors to replace it. For example, use colorful vegetables and fruits to create visual impact, or natural plants like wicker and bamboo.
Fourth, when you use decorative picture to add artistic feeling in your home, the height of picture frame matters. No one would like to appreciate artwork by rising head. The perfect height is in parallel with your eyesight. If your decorative picture is large, you can have the upper door frame as base line. The height of decorative picture should not surpass it. This ensures people can appreciate it comfortably from any angle in the room. Another rule for hanging decorative picture at the back of sofa is that leave 15 cm interval between the bottom of decorative picture and the top edge of sofa back cushion. Except decorative picture, wall decals are another good selection for wall decoration
