Interior Design: The Art for Everyday Living
Updated: Mar 6, 2020
Have you ever walked into a room and felt instantly at home? Chances are it wasn't an empty room with uncovered windows and bare lightbulbs! And it probably wasn't cluttered and crowded with tattered furniture or with stacks of papers and things lying around. . . The special something about that room, which invited you in and made you feel light, calm (and maybe even a bit glamorous!) was almost certainly due to the influence of a talented professional or DIY Interior Designer.
Optimize Your Space
A well-designed room functions effortlessly. It is easy and comfortable to be in and to move through, whether you are alone or with friends and family. You want to be sure that you can utilize all the space in your home or office while also enjoying the experience. Interior Design is the art of tailoring a space to the owner's personal needs and style in a manner that optimizes the space's functionality. The best Interior Designers use textures, materials, colors, lighting, forms, and furniture to create ideal spatial experiences.
When an interior is designed to your style and for optimal functioning, you will find yourself feeling organized and ready to tackle anything!
Create a Mood
Colors are one of the easiest ways to create a mood in a room. Various colors, shades, and color combinations can make a space feel bright and vivacious, calm and tranquil, clean and fresh, or opulent and luxurious. When you consider the design of a space, think actively about the mood you want to evoke and how the various colors and other elements make you feel. Give names to the moods and feelings throughout this process and be sure to ask family members for input. If you're working with a professional Interior Designer, don't be afraid to share your thoughts about colors and mood. The feelings evoked by color in your space will have a profound impact on your day-to-day mood and emotional well-being. It's so important to get them just right!
Save Time, Effort and Money
As an Interior Designer, one of the most common misconceptions I encounter is that people think that my services are exclusive, luxury services. The words "Interior Designer" evoke full-home makeovers, glossy magazines, and celebrity mansions. The truth is that even the most dedicated DIY'er should have an Interior Designer in their toolkit. From advice on colors and functionality to furniture purchases, repairs or re-upholstery, an Interior Designer has the knowledge to help guide and streamline your choices.
With my knowledge, I help my clients make style and furnishing choices that are both current and stylish but also classic and durable. Quality design will last for years and it will be perfect in the first attempt.
