Most early forms of motion pictures or film were black and white. Some color film processes, including hand coloring were experimented with, and in limited use, from the earliest days of motion pictures. The switch from most films being in black-and-white to most being in color was gradual, taking place from the 1930s to the 1960s. Even when most film studios had the capability to make color films, the technology’s popularity was limited, as using the Technicolor process was expensive and cumbersome. For many years, it was not possible for films in color to render realistic hues, thus its use was restricted to historical films, musicals, and cartoons until the 1950s, while many directors preferred to use black-and-white stock. For the years 1940–1966, a separate Academy Award for Best Art Direction was given for black-and-white movies along with one for color; similarly, from 1939–1966 (excepting 1957), a separate Academy Award for Best Cinematography was given for both black-and-white and color movies.
"YES" SEASONAL CHANGE OF PARTS. Finding those who have in stock several sets of curtains and bedspreads is an extremely difficult task. Very vain. After all, such a simple technique as a seasonal change of textiles can radically transform the interior. FREEDOM OF THE CENTRAL PART OF THE TABLE. Huge bouquets standing in the central part of the table most often look disharmonious, and also make communication between people who eat food difficult. A massive vase with large flowers is best replaced with a wicker basket or a decorative pot with several flowering plants. . BALANCE BETWEEN VIOLATION AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE RULES. To create a truly outstanding room in terms of decor, you have to step over a number of rules. But there are laws that are strictly not recommended to be violated. For example, among them are the rules for mixing prints, the non-observance of which will make any interior disharmonious.
DARK TONES - NOT ONLY FOR BIG ROOMS. A small room, dominated by dark tones, looks no worse than light. Conversely, saturated colors dominate the boundaries of space, diverting attention from its modest size. FIND A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR DECORATION. When choosing the direction in which to move, choosing a decor, we recommend that you forget the concept of "style". A more reasonable step would be to search for sources of inspiration, images that I would like to see in the interior. Ideas can be gleaned from paintings, films, music. For example, a room decorated in the spirit of the famous film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will look interesting. PERFECT SYMMETRY - NOT PERFECT. A completely symmetrical room, equal parts of which look like a mirror image of each other, is perceived as uncomfortable to be in it. Therefore, in such a room must be present at least one asymmetric element. For example, a picture on the wall or sconces. DISCLAIMER OF AGGRESSIVE FORMS AND COLORS. Most professional decorators are of the opinion that the main and necessary characteristics of a living space are comfort and a relaxing atmosphere. It is better to create a corner of calm in the house than to opt for aggressive shapes and colors.
TEXTILE SETS MOOD. If the design of the room does not produce the expected effect emotionally, then change the textiles in it. This is the most affordable way to change the atmosphere of a living space. PERFECTLY NEUTRAL - GRAY BROWN. As the color, which can become a neutral background for the interior, most often choose between white, gray and beige. Professional decorators recommend paying attention to taupe. This color is harmonious in terms of the simultaneous warmth and coldness of its shade, and also does not bother for a long time. NEW LIFE OF OLD THINGS. The abundance of old things in the house is a characteristic that speaks of the interior from a negative side. But you should not completely abandon them. Connect your imagination, and among the things that seem to have served their purpose long ago, there will certainly be something interesting. Some can be used in the interior in its original form, while others will have to be painted, upholstered or decorated with decoupage. The main thing is to strive to see hidden opportunities in old things. ART OBJECT OWN HANDS. If you have an artistic flair, it’s quite possible to do an interesting thing that claims to be the subject of art on your own. It can be a collage from your own photos, a picture, a poster or a sculpture from papier-mâché. Make your work the visual center of the room by placing it on a pedestal. If the necessary creative skills are missing, then get a ready-made art object. True, this pleasure is not cheap. The art object will make the interior unique and free from the need to purchase numerous small decor.
