How to decorate your room: when you start decorating there are some keys to keep in mind. Here below some “insider tips” that can guide you to reach an harmonic environment.

Take just two colours: you can use them in millions of ways through the house.
You can take the colours in a room and use in another way in another room.

And the result is granted. The room will magically feel bigger and lighter and you feel more comfortable.
