Proportion





All parts of a furnished room must help express one ideal of balance.

The realization of this ideal is proportion. A horizontal room calls

for horizontal furniture and lines, a vertical room for vertical ones.

Every important decorative feature of a room must be selected in

accordance with its proportion in general. The size of a room

increases the form scale (or scale of the forms) represented by

furniture, pictures, rugs, etc. In every room the important individual

pieces, such as library table, piano, bed, dresser, must parallel one

or another wall. Do not violate proportion and artistic effect by

overcrowding.
