The right interior is the guarantee of peace of mind

What do we want from home? So, choose the style. With all the seeming variety in fact it turns out that the main style directions are only four: classic, modern, ethno and high-tech. All the rest is already style-forming details.

How to choose an interior design? Some designers begin the creative process with ... an informal dinner in a restaurant with customers. At first glance, it is difficult to consider the artist's intense intellectual activity after a leisurely, pleasant conversation. This is his skill. A casual, secular conversation is actually an interview. The designer unobtrusively conducts his scouting: cold tones or warm ones? Minimalism or floridity? Leather or velvet? By the end of dinner, the professional, as a rule, has already matured a "diagnosis". A little trick - if it's not our intention to ask for help from a professional designer, you can conduct an "interview" in the genre of "auto-ethnography" yourself, answering yourself with simple questions. It is important to remember at the same time that our goal is not to impress anyone at all, but to create the most comfortable conditions for ourselves.

Tell me who you are

By the most general classification, all people are divided intotemperament into four types: choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic and melancholic. Since each of them has a special view of the world and its perception of the beautiful, a unique manner of behavior and a way of interacting with others, people so different from each other need a completely different environment to feel comfortable.

Choleric people are real "fidgets"spontaneous, eccentric and energetic. Phlegmatic, on the contrary, are concentrated and balanced. They are hard to get mad or surprise. Sanguinics combine emotionality and the ability to get carried away by choleric people with the thoughtfulness and depth of phlegmatic people. Finally, melancholic people are somewhat apathetic and hypochondriac, but sensitive, responsive and receptive.

And although in their pure form these temperaments are extremely rare, we can talk about a predominant, predominant type of behavior.

Another little advice. Do not rush to throw out "all that is superfluous". Souvenirs, family heirlooms, lovely trinkets will surely find a place in the new interior. A home without hints at the history of life is like a palm without lines.

Remember the color. Perhaps, one of the main tips in the design will be for you a color solution. As soon as you understand, in what colors you want to live happily ever after - the color itself will "choose" the architectural lines and design content of the premises. "In tone" it is much easier to choose finishing materials, accessories and other accessories. It would be good to be guided, in addition to the aesthetic representations, by the practicality of every detail.

Architectural solution. Surely for the owner of the living space is not a secret that it is not necessary to break down the walls. With the help of all kinds of modern lighting devices, the same room can change beyond recognition. However, we do not forget about compatibility. We do not get rid of old mirrors, lamps and aquariums with thoughtless extravagance. But we are not trying to "squeeze" accessories from the past of the interior to where they clearly do not fit.


Repair, of course, is a natural disaster. But treat everything philosophically and remember the folk wisdom: "Hurry up - people make fun of." Hurry in repair - it's the most undesirable thing. After all, our ultimate goal is to create around ourselves a small cozy universe, beyond which any cataclysms are not terrible.

TEST Consent and disagreement with statementsevaluate on a 10-point scale: 1. Before any important event for me, I begin to get nervous. 2. I work unevenly, in snatches. 3. I quickly switch from one case to another. 4. If necessary, I can safely wait. 5. I need sympathy and support, especially in case of failures and difficulties. 6. With equals I am unrestrained and quick-tempered. 7. It is not difficult for me to make a choice. 8. I do not have to restrain my emotions, it turns out by itself.
