Whether you are moving into a new house in need of decoration or you want to revamp your current New York home’s décor, it is important to know a few basic elements of interior design. Understanding a little bit about interior design can help you create a home that is everything you ever imagined. The interior fabrics and upholstery you choose should reflect the basic elements of design: balance, rhythm, harmony, emphasis, and proportion and scale. You don’t necessarily have to match your sofa’s upholstery to your drapes, but you can repeat colors, shapes, or textures to create a unified design scheme.
