THE BIG BANG THEORY
Rules are made to be broken. Over the next few months, I’m going to obliterate the so- called rules of interior design… take a chance, experiment with your own home, and gain confidence to be a design maverick!
#1. The Big Bang Theory
The first design dictate is ‘small spaces require small pieces’. Not one ounce of truth! I say, GO BIG. I love large art, large mirrors, large wallpaper patterns. Another small space rule I hear repeated is ‘paint the room a light color so the walls recede’. Wrong… light rooms are stunning, but never feel that a dark color is going to close a room in. It can add warmth and coziness, or tons of drama! Here are some examples of large items in small rooms that make these spaces showstoppers.
Have fun with interior design and forget the rules!
