Trick and Treat
You know how they say pinstripe trouser make your legs appear longer? The same design principle applies in rearranging your living space – a striped floor will always create the illusion of space.Fixing a large mirror on the wall will add to the ‘space’ effect. Replace heavy wooden furniture with sleek, transparent ones – for instance, place a glass top center table or one that is made from Lucite or acrylic.Also, choose furniture pieces that are a close match with your wall shade; for example, if your wall shade is a rich cream, pick out up hostelries in whites or fawn.
An obvious tip but an important one at that – the lighter your walls, the larger the rooms. Dark shades of paint might make a room appear cozy ,but they also in turn make the room look smaller.The reason behind this is simple science – light shades catch and multiply light while dark ones absorb light. So stick to colors on lighter side of the palette such as cream, vanilla, powder blue and papaya whip.
