3. SCALE    "Scale compares the size or dimension of one thing to another. In order to properly keep a room to scale, you need to take the sizes of objects into consideration. The heights and weights of your furniture should be relative to the size of your room. A giant sofa in a tiny living room won’t look right; neither will tiny nightstands next to a king size bed. This also related to the proportion of objects: The shade of a lamp has to be in proportion to the base” (Rooney, 2008).

idea: buy neutral furniture, and change wall color to change mood of room!  would allow us to buy furniture as we go before actually picking a house.

If all else fails, fill your house with tons of mirrors to reflect every particle of light you’ve got.

Also, lamps with shades are an abomination. KILL THEM WITH FIRE.
