Understanding how the particular items work in interior decorative design will increase your chances of success in redecorating projects. Understanding the difference between architectural elements and decorating items is key. Windows are an architectural element but window treatments can be changed. The treatments, then become the decorating items. Built-in cabinets and closets, though not integral to structure, are architectural in nature. Freestanding bookcases and display cabinets can be moved around, painted or stained another color, or even altered in size. These items, then become the decorative items. Walls and ceilings are architectural elements as they remain fixed in place. But the color and texture of walls and ceilings can be easily transformed. Paint is a decorating item. A wall is not.
Decorative items are those that enhance the architecture of your home, add visual interest and comfort and can be easily changed. Upholstered furniture and cabinetry contribute mass and scale to your scheme. The fabrics and finishes you choose add color and texture of the premises. Replacing the lamps, tables and accessories create flow within the room.
