Going Bold The Right Way

A fear of thinking outside the box can cause an interior to feel bland and unwelcoming. However, if you push too hard in the other way, it can create rooms that are overwhelming, and equally unappealing. If you’re planning on going a little more bold with your decorating, you need to make sure you’re getting the balance just right. Here are a few tips for achieving this…
Accentuate with Some Bold Colors

The color scheme of any space will have a big impact on how people feel in it, so it makes sense that this is where many people start when trying to achieve a bolder design in their home. When you’re looking to go bold with color, take your time determining which hues will accentuate the rest of the interior best. If you’ve got a lot of natural light streaming into a room, then a bold contrast of black and white can amplify the whole room without pushing the envelope too far. If a room gets barely any light, go for brighter colors, creating a more saturated and reflective scheme.
Give Bold Features the Right Backdrop
While a bolder color scheme can be a great way to breathe life into worn-out furniture and decorative pieces, if you’re intending to go bold with features rather than colors, you need to give them the right backdrop. Large, mounted sculptures and indoor water fountains will automatically catch people’s gaze as they enter. If they’re surrounded by other interesting things all screaming for attention, it can make the space feel pretty unwelcoming. When adding a dominating, bold feature to a room, try to balance it out with a good backdrop. Neutral fabrics and furnishings in creams, beiges and whites, will ensure that your spaces don’t become overwhelming.
Make a Statement

You’ve got full control over the way your interiors look, so why not make a statement? If you’ve seen a large, bold light fixture that you fell in love with, but you’re afraid of how it might look in one of your rooms, then start looking for ways to accentuate the other elements of the room, and create the perfect environment for your fixture to hang over. You don’t need to buy a whole new set of furniture. This ploy can be as simple as painting over the walls with a bolder color, or removing your heavy window treatments to let more natural light in.
Create a Contrast

Some of the best interiors you’ll see are the ones that combine both bold and subdued elements, making the whole room a more varied and memorable experience for anyone who enters. If you’ve got an extravagant red chesterfield sofa that you adore, try to group it in with tamer, more understated furniture. Creating a contrast using more traditional, archaic elements combined with more bold and modern ones can also be a highly effective ploy if you get the balance just right. Splashes of bold, bright colors amongst classical lines and scaling can create an exceedingly potent effect.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
