As it often happens, once the house or apartment is built, bought, renovated or all of the above, the need to furnish and decorate it, is a matter of highest urgency. The compulsory need to “start living” in the new space can be described as the sight of a water oasis after a long walk in the scorching sun. That feeling alone drives many, to overdose on furnishing and decorating their spaces. Like binging after a dreadful stint at a diet, homeowners have very hungry eyes.
Contrary to the instinctive call to action of “lets get this place/room finished”, decorating should be a process of many layers. While the essentials (like a bed, sofa, dining table and chairs) should be in place from the beginning, other decorative elements such as complementing pieces, art and accessories should be acquired overtime to avoid a decorative overdose. This way, there is no chance at over furnishing and more success at meeting individual needs, spatial requirements and most importantly, maximizing decorative and functional potential of every interior element.
