Checking for defects

From Expert Advice Kenneth Brown
First thing you need to do when you take over possession of your new apartment is to check for defects and report them to the management office for rectification works. Therefore, it is very important that this is done correctly and swiftly so that unacceptable products and workmanship can be rectified quickly so as not to affect the progress of your renovation works to come.
  • Here are some common items to lookout for when checking for defects;
  • Always start from the main door and walk in slowing area by area.

Do's & Don'ts of home decoration

From Expert Advice Kenneth Brown

Design is in the details. But, what exactly does that mean? To start with, you’ll want to pick a style before making any purchases. Don’t get too “theme-y” — your home is not an amusement park. You’ll also want to select a focal piece to inspire your design style, but don’t overdo it. One focal point per room is plenty.
When adding color to your walls don’t pick the color in the paint store or from a small chip. Instead, seek your interior designer for advice before committing to the color. Also, let your furniture “float” in the room so that it breathes rather than pushing it all up against the walls. Then fill out your room with these common dos and don’ts of design.
·                   Do use mirrors to create “vistas” in your room.
·                   Don’t use mirrors overlooking your bed.
·                   Do use soft lightings to enhance the mood of your room.
·                   Don’t go overboard with too many lights.
·                   Do layer your lighting with table and floor lamps.
·                   Don’t use light bulbs over 60 watts.
·                   Do use area rugs to anchor a furniture layout.
·                   Don’t use rugs that are too small. Always go up a size when selecting your rug so all furniture has at least the front legs sitting on the rug.
·                   Do bring in outdoor foliage for creative holiday centerpieces.
·                   Don’t forget to sit at the table while arranging it so you see it from a diner’s point of view. Avoid the jungle in the middle of the table syndrome.
·                   Do change the pillows on your sofa with the seasons.
·                   Don’t limit yourself to just two on a sofa — use a mix of styles and sizes to create entirely different looks.
·                   Do have a table within arms reach in your living room.
·                   Don’t feel like all tables have to be made of the same material. It’s even okay to mix wood colors from table to table

How to display accessories?

1. For wall displays, follow these guidelines
A.      Place the heaviest objects at the bottom of your display.
B.      Your overall composition should have a rough shape or form.
C.     Keep space between objects to a minimum so items are visually related.
D.     Vary the sizes, shapes, textures and colors used in a group.
E.       Keep the center of your grouping at eye level.
Displays placed over sitting areas are generally placed lower on the wall so they are visible when people are seated.
2. For table top displays, Follow these guideline
A.      Compose your display so that one item dominates.
B.      Make sure items are appropriate in size and scale for the surface. Avoid items that are too big or heavy, or so small they get lost.
C.     Odd numbers work better than even numbers 3 or 5 objects will work better than 2 or 4.
D.     Unify a collection of small objects by placing them on a tray.
E.       Place objects close enough together so that they are visually related. For example, Don’t spread 3 objects out on a cocktail table, group them together.

Tips for home color match

Different styles and concepts have different color scheme, each one has wonderful appearance from professional designer’s hands. Some basic rules of colour matching are:
1. Colors of one space should not be more than 3, not including white and blank.
2. Gold and silver can match with any color. Gold not including yellow, silver not including white.
3. The best of the home color schemes in the case of no designer would be: light color wall, warm color floor and deep color fitments.
4. Don’t use warm colors in the kitchen, not including yellow.
5. Don’t use deep green flooring.
6. In any case, don’t put same color but different material stuff. Otherwise, you may make mistake in half a chance.
7. If you want bright and modern home theme, don’t use the printing fabrics, (not including green plant) use single color design.
8. Ceiling must light than walls or be the same as wall. When the wall color is deep, ceiling must be light.
9. Open space must use one color schemes. Block out spaces can use different color schemes.
