When choosing a color palette for your room, use no more than three colors. When decorating, follow the 60-30-10 rule. 60% of the room should be a dominant color, 30% a secondary color, and 10% an accent color. More than 3 colors can make the room start to look busy.
It is not necessary to put all of the furniture in one direction. A conversation area using a few chairs is a great idea for a different area of your living room. You can catch up with an old friend over a cup of tea in comfort.
It doesn’t matter where you live, even overseas, or what you are currently doing or even how old you are. If you have the will to succeed in studying interior design, there are online courses available right now from a number of highly-regarded institutions.
After you have created your room on your computer, then comes the fun part, trying out colors and designs.
