The flow of design in your home
While design in general may have set guidelines and principles, an individual’s taste and style are broad and unique. Taste and style are determined by a person’s exposure and experience to various things in life, including travel, lifestyle, attitude, etc.
Then it becomes evident that every individual has a unique approach of expressing themselves in the way they dress, carry themselves and even decorate their homes.
Each of these things is determined by the individual’s identity and outlook. And the environment we create for ourselves plays a vital role in determining how content we are.The Effect of Flow
This is where the flow of design comes into effect. A haphazard display of items, colors or textures in a home with no proper fluidity or transition from one room to another can make for an unpleasant and jarring sight. The décor of your home is highly influenced by the functional requirement and the individual style that you choose.
Some people prefer wide, open spaces with a lot of natural light while others may prefer cozy and warm spaces with ambient lighting. Whatever your preference is, there must be cohesiveness to the various elements of design and décor within your home. It is not sufficient to just decorate each room with a different theme.
Each room within your home cannot be treated as individual islands while designing the interiors; rather they must be viewed as a collection of spaces that are intertwined with the core of what your home means to you.Design Principles
If you have a certain theme going on for your home, it should be noted that too much of a certain theme can make your home look gaudy and lackluster. It is wise to have a break between rooms in the propensity to stick to a certain theme. Alternating patterns or using different flooring for different rooms can give a much needed fluidity of movement from one room to another. Creating zones within rooms also improves the overall ambience and can elevate the feel of the setting. Whatever your style maybe, it is important to keep in mind certain design principles while doing the interiors of your home. If you are not familiar with these principles, it is best to make use of an interior designer who can help guide you and transform your vision into a reality.Creative Guidelines
A lot of us may be tempted to go all out with our creativity but it is prudent to keep in mind that there are some creative guidelines that we must follow to create a cohesive atmosphere within our homes. A fine example of this can be the coordination between the furniture, the flooring and the walls.
5 Ways To Liven Up Your Living Space
Are you bored of seeing the same old things in your home? Do you need ideas for rejuvenating the life of a room in your home? Well here are some fun, creative and inexpensive ways to improve the décor in your living environment. We show you our very own creations, using these elements1. Mirrors
Ask any interior designer and he/she will tell you that the use of mirrors and other reflective surfaces improves the way light disperses into a space. With the abundance of light that a room derives from the use of mirrors, polished metallic surfaces and other such materials, the ambience is brightened up and presents a more wholesome feel. Here, you can literally see the room space double with the grand big mirror rested against the wall.
Be it wool, hair on hide, natural fiber, Persian or any other type, a rug or carpet can really vitalize any given space. A colorful piece of fabric on the floor to throw into contrast sober furniture or untextured walls can improve the visual appeal of a room, especially a living or dining room. Rugs and carpets can also be used to designate areas within a room to mark a boundary to a space which serves any required function. And what is even better is that rugs and carpets can even be draped over walls! This method of using them can serve as a work of art that can drastically improve the interiors of your home.
In this room, we used a big, heavy rug like carpet to add a hint of contrast in the form of a lighter shade to these dark brown cupboards.
Art is an expression. Whether it is done by a seasoned artist or a DIY project, art can be used to bring to life a wall or sometimes even an entire room depending on the size of the piece. Effective use of art can really do wonders to improve the aesthetic appeal of the space it is used in. Art can even be done directly on a wall which brings us to our next tip. This light and bright design concept of ours used the help of framed pop art posters as well as a more dignified artwork to balance the interiors and make them pack a punch!
4. Utilizing colors effectively on your walls
Changing the color of a wall to match new furniture or to accentuate existing furniture can make a huge difference and energize an otherwise bleak setting. Bright colors and the use of more than one color on a wall will definitely improve the charm of a room. As you can see in our interior work here, we used contrasting colours in a muted set-up to keep the elegance and still be impactful.
5. Placing Plants
Plants can really help liven up a room by bringing a bit of nature into your home. Creative placement of plants can be used to raise the attractiveness of a room that they are placed in. If the use of indoor plants is too much of a hassle for you, you can even use faux plants that are very easy to maintain and clean. In this project we used small, miniature plants in pretty white and neutral colour pots to add some life to the cool blue interiors.
And there you have it, 5 easy ways to liven up your living space.
