Decorating a home is about finding a comfortablebalance between the different furnishings in the space. This balance isachieved by placing objects with varying characteristics in places where theycompliment one another. The idea is to create relationships between yourpossessions, in order to develop a whole; which is more impressive than the sumof its parts.

Scale refers to the size of architectural featuresand furnishings within a space. With scale, finding a balance is particularlyimportant, otherwise, you will get a room that feels chaotic, and lookspeculiar.

And remember always: "less is more."
