Create Vertical Balance

A room is much more than the floor area and yet, that is often where many of us stop. We buy the furniture, add the lamps and maybe a small piece of art, hung on a nail that was already in the wall. (we have seen it done) The beauty of a room goes from floor to ceiling and by decorating from the floor up, you expand the perception of size and create vertical balance.

Here is a great example of using art to bring the eye up. Our client loved the subject matter and color story. The art is connected by using blue at various levels. Notice the use of the blue in the rug and the piping in the chair.

Look around your room, is all the weight in the bottom of the room? Call Melanie Murphy Interiors to help you add the vertical balance your room needs.
