In interior design we use what is known as visual weight. An effect without which the rooms seem flat. To gain this visual weight, what is done is to use textures that combine the contrast and depth needed to create accents.Any interior design is well below the professional level when it does not have a texture scheme designed so that the decoration is balanced, nor is it too predictable or staged. Texture is the sensation produced by how things feel through our senses .Using textures is the art of mixing rough and soft. Although it may be a tactile effect, it is actually a visual effect . In fact, using the texture correctly goes far beyond mixing materials. Elements such as light or layering are some of the tricks that help us use textures fluently.Layer overlayIn decoration, rich and deep-filled schemes have their key in the creation of multiple layers . It is about the textures being spoken and combined between them. Regardless of the elements that we will include to use the textures, they must create contrast with each other.As an example we can mention the impact produced by the glass of the base of a table lamp with the leather of some old books placed next to it. The contrast of a polished granite fireplace with a fluffy carpet at its feet .The walls are always a good framework to use textures. The different treatments that we can give to a wall so that they are multidimensional , even, the correct placement of paintings and works of art in them can give us this effect.How to use textures with fabricsUndoubtedly, some of the best sources for texture in the decoration of a space are fabrics . Its use provides the necessary balance to a room lacking texture and contrast .We can create texture by combining the colors of textiles, but we especially like the use of different materials with fabrics in the same tones . This creates depth and texture in a simple way and with spectacular results.When we talk about giving texture through fabrics, we should not limit ourselves exclusively to sofas and cushions. All the fabrics of the room must participate in the texture game . This includes curtains, carpets, upholstery and lampshades.The combination of linens with velvets, long-haired wool with shiny silks or faux fur is always a success. The tendency to use the same type of fabric throughout the room is a very common mistake in decoration. Being daring and not being afraid of contrasts is a guarantee to use textures correctly.Textured furnitureThe furniture provides us with a great opportunity to add texture to a room. The contrast of a marble or glass table, smooth and cold, on rattan or wool rugs immediately creates texture in a dining room.Coordinating a sofa and an armchair in color, but with different fabrics , is another way to achieve this effect. A coffee table without defined borders, located in a room with simple lines, is another example of how to use textures in a professional manner.Textured accessoriesOur favorites They provide us with the possibility of adding texture to a space without having to plan it in excess. They also give us the opportunity to add texture in rooms that are already decorated, but that are somewhat flat and without contrasts.The trick in this case is not to overdo it. We will not add too many accessories or make a parade of textures throughout the room. Choose only some that produce the opposite effect to the area of the room where you are going to place them.We can play with the glass of vases, mirrors and items such as trays, sofa blankets, cushions, lamps and plants . These decorative elements easily provide us with the contrast of textures. The trick is to choose them in the materials and finishes that we do not already have in the room.Lighting: knowing how to use texturesThe lighting is usually one of the great forgotten when decorating our house. Interior designers always include the lighting scheme of their projects, but at a non-professional level, this is often forgotten.It is the light of the room that will add the most in the form of a visual character. Warm white light brings softness to a space, while cold white light adds hardness. On these two bases of the lights, you have to plan their location .Playing with direct and indirect lights is the best way to finish adding texture through lighting . Converting dark corners into reading centers with an appropriate floor lamp or table, or illuminating the pictures on the wall, are always successful when using textures intelligently.
Do you feel inspired by the great English country houses and their wonderful and warm decoration? Today we tell you all the keys to achieve this aesthetic.We are going to know today a style that is all yearning, romanticism and good taste. The British Cottage style is a classic of interior design. Full of nostalgia and sensitivity, this is the decoration that transports us to the softness, colors and smells of the picturesque hills of the English countryside.A style that creates dream houses, worthy of the best novels . This is an aesthetic that we love, but it is also one of the most complicated to solve. A style that does not need a house in the country. Even a small apartment can be converted to the magic of a pure British cottage style .To achieve the wonderful feeling of warmth and comfort of this style, it will be enough to correctly complement its key elements , such as fabrics, colors, carpets, furniture and decorative accessories that characterize it. We give you all the clues.British cottage style colorsWe opt for light colors for this decorative style. Its romantic, nostalgic and delicate touch does not admit too many dark colors.Pastel, white or raw tones and even creamy beige are the tones that combine and highlight the floral patterns so characteristic of this look . As an accent, a small touch of some darker tone can be added, but very carefully.The furniture is painted in these pastel colors or we can even soften the wooden furniture that we don't want to color. The green tones can not be missing in this style, although our advice is that they are added within the patterns, in the form of branches or leaves. It also supports natural green plants.Textile layers and layersThis is one of the styles that uses more combination of fabrics. The fabrics in the British cottage are the real protagonists. Printed fabrics and pastel colors are the flag on which all this aesthetics is based.Flowers are the main theme and with them you can let your imagination fly , because they are not limited only to upholsteries. Floral prints are welcome in the cottage style on sofas, curtains or cushions. But they also have a privileged place at the bottom of the showcases, the lampshades and even on the walls.The trick is to choose them well and not overload the stay . Combine it with simple pieces in plain colors so that competition for attention is not created. The combination of floral patterned fabrics gives an instant home environment.Lots and lots of booksIn the British cottage you can not miss the corners of reading . It doesn't matter if we are decorating the living room or the bedroom. Books and the English countryside have always gone hand in hand. These types of houses become true centers of retreat and introspection.Recover your old bookcase with a good paint hand, place a comfortable armchair upholstered with flowers , a footrest, many matching cushions, a small table with a large lamp and fill it with books. And there you have your British cottage style reading corner .Also stack the books on the coffee tables in the living room or even give them a large round table to stack them all and that they are always available. Old books will always be in sight and are another of the jewels of these romantic spaces, especially those with worn leather covers.Flowers and more flowersWhen we talk about flowers in the British cottage style, we can't just keep upholstery. These houses are full of natural floral arrangements everywhere . Lavender, violets, thyme and sage are elements with which to fill the beautiful ceramic vases of the countryside houses.Make sure you have flowers on the coffee table , side tables and sideboards. This style also allows us to add vintage elements almost without limit . Rocking chairs, cages full of plants and old porcelain pieces. Mix them with the books and don't forget to add some tray to serve the tea.
The meaning of Feng Shui is "wind and water", and its mission is to balance the elements that make up the decoration of a space to create houses in harmony, where vital energy circulates correctly and does not escape or transform.The Feng Shui is an ancient art that is applied in decoration and basically constitutes a spiral in constant rotation. Each of the turns of this spiral arises from the previous one. The first round of the Feng Shui spiral in decoration would be "to organize your outer world to develop your inner world ", the second would be "to organize your outer space to enhance your inner world" ... and so on.The premise of the art of Feng Shui is that all places influence our lives. It is a wonderful philosophy that deals with the relationships between the visible and invisible forces of our world . In Feng Shui , the hall, for example, is associated with the fire element and is the perfect place to express and display art.The light and ventilation of Feng Shui in decorationWe start with the basics. The light in Feng Shui has a preferential place. This art requires that the rooms receive a lighting, preferably exterior, perfect . In Feng Shui we do not find any furniture or decorative element that hinders the entry of light. No objects are positioned in front of the windows and avoid leaving corners without lighting.The good ventilation of a house is as important or more than the light in Feng Shui . Keeping the rooms aired regularly prevents accumulated energies from stalling in them . It should be ventilated often. Pay special attention to opening windows while cleaning and after a shower or hot water bath.The bathroomsThere is a very old popular belief within Feng Shui that says that bathrooms are the focus of economic problems in a home. This art considers that the pipes are one of the channels that drain the vital energy , and with it, the resources also go away.It is very important in Feng Shui to keep the drains covered while they are not being used. The toilet lid must always be closed, as well as the entrance door. This approach holds that all drains can quickly remove Chi from the house if you are not careful with this.The predominant element in the bathrooms is water, and it must be balanced with the fire element and the earth element . For this, we can include in the bathroom decoration toilet supplies made of clay or wood; also scented candles and plants.The Feng Shui in decoration stairsThe stairs are one of the most complicated points of a house in terms of energy. The Feng Shui considers as "cascades" to lead the life energy too quickly from one floor to the other .Especially complex are the stairs that lead to an exit door. They originate circuits through which the vital energy escapes from the house . It is necessary to compensate them. The longer and steeper they are, the more care will be taken.A widely used strategy in Feng Shui is to place a large mirror in front of the stairs . The mirror reflection "hunts" symbolically the energy that escapes and projects it back to the upper floor.If at the top of the staircase has a bathroom, the power circuit can be reset by placing beside the door of the toilet, as Front possible the ladder, some furniture low, beige or neutral and placed above he some composition of bromeliad type plants .Water elementA house organized under the guidelines of Feng Shui must have the water element. Ideally, install a decorative fountain, where water flows . If this is not possible, it can be replaced by a picture with images of water, marine or any element that symbolizes it. Crystal decorative elements also symbolize water.Bed locationThe basic rule of Feng Shui for the location of the bed is that from it you can see it enters the room, but avoiding that the door is just in front . If it were, just place some element between the door and the bed. We serve some foot of bed, a trunk or other furniture that makes the times.The Feng Shui does not like too many mirrors in the bedroom. The mirrors activate the energies of the bedroom and interfere with sleep , causing agitation and insomnia. The bigger and closer to the bed, the more it will affect the quality of sleep.As for orientation, there is a widespread idea that it should be oriented to the north, but this is not really so. In Feng Shui , different orientations of the bed also have different benefits .Sleeping with the head facing north reinforces health and vitality . If you sleep with your head facing south, it promotes intuition , stimulates dreams and memory. The orientation towards the west decreases the vital rhythms with what is beneficial in stressful situations. On the contrary, an orientation towards the east has a tendency to accelerate life, which is very beneficial to overcome laziness.

In this way, you will avoid uncomfortable cleaning and relocation of junk at the last minute.Use only the best for the guest roomThere is nothing uglier and lacking in style than composing the guest room with the junk left over at home. Even if you are thinking of recycling some of your old furniture for use in this space, be sure to paint and restore them so that they are part of the wonderful set that this room deserves.The beds should be comfortable and cozy. Choose mattresses that seek the rest of your guests . Remember that they need space for your clothes.This includes a closet closet and a piece with drawers, bedside tables and a chest at the foot of the bed, or at least one standing clothes rack where to put the clothes of the day.The advice of not using the guest room for another purpose includes closets. It is very tempting to place the clothes of other seasons in the empty closets of the guest room, but this will only lead to more complications later.The cabinets must be empty, clean and scented . The only thing that should be inside the closet or drawers will be the bedding, several blankets and some extra pillows.All accessoriesA guest room is the perfect opportunity to display all our creative arts in interior decoration . Put yourself in the place of your guests. You will need beautiful lamps on the night tables .

Do not skimp, place books, a good armchair, fresh flowers and toiletries . Think of the smallest but essential details.Your guests do not like to bother asking for things. Add a couple of towel sets , an alarm clock, a wastebasket, a nice napkin, if the bedroom is en suite and has its own bathroom, make sure there is absolutely nothing missing.BeddingEverything in this room will say a lot about you, your tastes, your hospitality and your good work. And the best element to start pampering your guests is the bedding . Sheets, duvet and pillows should be new and exclusively for this bedroom .In specialty stores there are endless bedding to choose from. Our advice is that with the sheets you decide on something blank and of good quality . Although it seems that white is a dirtier color, it is also true that it is the easiest to wash and the only one that allows disinfection with bleach.Like a hotel roomKeep it always clean and ironed. You must have several games ready at all times. Add to the bed all the pillows and items that you would add to yours .The colors we will use in the guest room will depend on your tastes, although our advice is to decorate it in neutral tones: beige , creams or stone gray .A guest room will be classic, luxurious, elegant and without stripes of color. Ideally, follow the boutique hotel style that has many of the keys you need for a space like this.Do not place photos or personal collections. Your personality will reflect it in good taste, but the stay must be somewhat impersonal to not make your guests feel that they are invading your private space.
When we talk about neutral tones in interior design, we basically refer to a term that means no color. Natural tones that move away from bright and striking colors. It is a color palette that inspires balance and peace . Therefore, a bedroom in neutral tones is always a good idea.In addition, they are rabidly fashionable, and they will be for a long time. All rooms in the house benefit from a decoration in neutral tones, but, perhaps, the bedroom is the ideal place to recreate this sense of balance that is so necessary to recover when we get home to rest.A bedroom in neutral tones provides nights of restful sleep and adds a plus of recollection and serenity. But what are the tones that we can use to decorate a bedroom in neutral tones?Let's get away from the classic vanilla color on the walls, which has been forced into bedrooms for years. The palette of neutral tones is very wide, and offers us many shades to play and combine perfectly . There are many surfaces in a bedroom where we can apply our neutral tones in different grades and shapes. Let's see it.We start on the groundGenerally, the floors of a bedroom can easily be found already in some neutral tone. The wooden floors or tiles in neutral colors (ivory colored earth) , serve as a basis to begin our bedroom decor in neutral tones.It is for this reason that we will begin adding pieces from the ground to gradually work upwards . Some carpets warm and comfortable are a must in any bedroom. And for us the first opportunity to add a neutral tone to our design.Natural fiber carpets, such as jute or sisal, are perfect. If what is intended is to get a better feeling of quality and coat, we will choose cotton rugs in soft stone or gray tones, taupes , or even white, beige or cream tones .Discreet colors but of great power. We can opt for small side carpets, although the greatest impact is provided by large carpets partly covered by the bed . Even carpets in neutral tones make a difference.The walls of a bedroom in neutral tonesBased on our floor in neutral tones we can start working the walls. We will start by observing all the architectural elements of the room: baseboards, cornices or architraves.The roof beams are also part of this second phase , as the roofs of the walls always consider in interior decoration.We will plan a color scheme, and decide how many shades to use and where. Using more than one neutral tone, in the same or different range, adds depth to the space and gives it a strong character. Remember to include the ceiling in this color scheme , do not systematically condemn it to the traditional white tone.The furniture of neutral tonesThe furniture provides us with a source of inspiration and exploration of varied forms and materials . The wooden ones are perfect for a bedroom in neutral tones, but through painting we can achieve the same effect on other types of furniture.Mirrors are other magnificent resources for a bedroom in neutral tones . We will see them both on walls and on furniture surfaces. Mirror bedside tables, even storage furniture, dressers and auxiliary mirror furniture are perfect for this type of decoration.Fabrics for a bedroom in neutral tonesThe textiles are the major players in the bedroom. It is one of the areas of the house that we will find more surfaces covered with fabrics . Therefore, curtains, quilts, blankets and pillows and all upholsteries offer us new opportunities to continue adding neutral tones.We must also remember that it is the textiles of a room that give us greater and better options to play with textures . The different textures add visual richness, and make a space interesting.Mix different textures, such as satin and silks, with luxurious velvets or mohair . Imitation skins are also another good resource for our bedroom in neutral tones.

We may use an area of the living room or kitchen to install the dining room, that is, a space that is shared with some other area of the house . In addition, this space can be given other uses, such as working, studying or using it to keep home accounting.These are spaces that are used for everything : breakfast , lunch and dinner, and it is also where we serve our guests when we have guests at home.

Therefore, on an informal dining table, the decoration will be very simple .
