Today, Home Decor Ideas blog will three very simple decorating tips for your home. Sometimes we look away from the most basic and simple things, however, these things are the ones that last for decades. And this is the case of these home decor ideas. Since good design advice is timeless, we will present you three tips from three pioneering interior designers Elsie de Wolfe, Dorothy Draper, and Billy Baldwin. Decades after their time, their pieces of advice about design are still true, no matter what is the style in question. Each of these greats had a unique idea of good taste, but all had careers that championed the revolutionary idea of individuality within the home. They all knew that thoughtful, personal choices are what stand the test of time and that any so-called design “rules” are meant to be broken. These are the reasons why today we will show you their brilliant tips and show you some beautiful interior design projects which we believe have worked with these tips and ideas.
“Suitability, simplicity, and proportion.” —Elsie de Wolfe
Simplicity doesn’t mean lack of personality and this is the perfect example of that. This beautiful interior designed by Michele Bonan is full of life and it has a great personality. Everything is perfectly proportional and we are in love with it.
Another beautiful example how everything matches perfectly, everything suits this room design and even though it is very simple, it will have a lot of impact to anyone who enters here.
A beautiful and simple dining room designed by top interior designer Helen Green. Once again, the words “suitability, simplicity, and proportion” are the order of the day.
“Remember, you are going to have to live with whatever you pick out, so don’t buy on impulse; sit down and try to picture the room you want to create.” —Dorothy Draper
The idea here is to not just create something for no reason. Should a design that will reflect your personality and enjoy every single thing on it.
Beautiful living room designed by Robert Stilin, you won’t want to leave the house.
“Your guest room should be just as comfortable as your own bedroom, and the only way you can be sure of it is to move in yourself for a trial weekend.” —Billy Baldwin
This is definitely a guest room where you will want to pass a lot of nights as well. Amazing design.
Take the advice from Billy Baldwin and make everybody who visits your house not want to leave it.
We believe that the main point here is that we shouldn’t leave any room design left behind, every place of our house should be equally important.
